Black Veil Brides has released a new song called “Torch,” a cut off the band’s upcoming album, The Phantom Tomorrow.

The track, which is available now for digital download, is accompanied by a video that concludes the narrative that began with the visual for lead single “Scarlet Cross,” and continued with the songs “Fields of Bone” and “Crimson Skies.” The story is related to the character Blackbird, an important figure in the Phantom Tomorrow concept.

“We wanted to create something that felt like a fitting ending to the four-video story arc that started with ‘Scarlet Cross,'” says frontman Andy Biersack. “While this is the end of the original ‘Blackbird’ video chronology, it certainly is not the end of The Phantom Tomorrow narrative that plays out on the record and in our upcoming comic book series.”

“It’s been one of the greatest joys of my professional life getting to dream up these concepts,” he adds. “For us as a band to work with such amazing individuals and to see this story realized on the screen is an absolute honor.”

The Phantom Tomorrow is due out October 29. It’s the follow-up to 2018’s Vale.
