Latest Black Veil Brides News
Below is our complete Black Veil Brides news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
In support of Anti-Bullying Awareness Month this October, Los Angeles based hard rockers Black Veil Brides have created an exclusive lyric t-shirt that is on-sale now. The band has teamed up with The Bully Project and created a crowdfunding initiative with all profits from the sale of the t-shirt going to support the organization.
The words “If We Stand Together We Will Be Unbroken” will be emblazoned across the front of the t-shirt, which is a lyric taken from the band’s song “Unbroken” featured on the "Avengers Assemble" soundtrack.
The band has also pulled in some sponsors to join in the fight against bullying. BandMerch, Peavy and Monster Energy will be supporting this endeavor through matching donations at different intervals of the campaign. The shirt will be on-sale for 3 weeks exclusively at teespring.com for $25.00 each and can be purchased at this location.
"Alex, who's powerful story of being bullied is told in the film BULLY, is 16 and an aspiring musician. He is a huge fan of the Black Veil Brides. We are grateful for artists like the Black Veil Brides for taking a stand with Alex, The BULLY Project and all of us who have felt like outsiders to end bullying and create safer schools," states Bully documentary director Lee Hirsch.
A subsequent component of the partnership is that Black Veil Brides will be encouraging everyone who purchases a shirt to send a photo of themselves wearing it. That photo can be emailed to the band at email@example.com. Upon sending the image to that email address, the person is giving the band permission to use their image in an anti-bullying video that they will be releasing on October 1st for Anti-Bullying Awareness Month.
