Black Veil Brides and Asking Alexandria will be teaming up this winter for a massive North American tour. On Tuesday (Sept. 26), the Los Angeles-based band and the United Kingdom-founded act announced joint plans to hit the road in early 2018 for a co-headlining tour. The upcoming excursion has been named “The Resurrection Tour” and will kick off on Jan. 10, 2018 at the Complex in Salt Lake City, Utah. After traveling across the United States and Canada for almost two months, the trek will conclude on March 2, 2018 at the House of Blues in Las Vegas.
Joining Black Veil Brides and Asking Alexandria for the complete trek will be Crown the Empire. Tickets for the upcoming tour will go on sale beginning this Friday, Sept. 29, here.
News of the upcoming tour should not come as much of a surprise to fans of both acts; both Black Veil Brides and Asking Alexandria have new music coming out in the near future. While being interviewed by Rock Sound, Black Veil Brides frontman Andy Biersack unveiled that their new album will see a release time frame of early 2018, though he did not confirm when in early 2018 the new album should be expected.
“The Black Veil Brides record will come out at the top end of 2018,” Biersack explained in the podcast. “The reason for the delay was that—first of all—we took 15 months to make the record, we really wanted everything to be as perfect as possible.” Back in late 2016, the band a new track titled “The Outsiders.” At the time, fans were to believe that the new song would be the first single off the much anticipated new album, but it is currently unknown if it will be featured on the impending record.
As for Asking Alexandria, the group recently released the music video for “Into the Fire“; their yet-to-be-titled fifth studio album’s lead single. According to the band, their new album will be released on Dec. 15 with pre-orders and additional details to be revealed within the upcoming weeks. The new album is the follow-up to 2016’s The Black and will mark the return of vocalist Worsnop who exited the band in early 2015.
