Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

This fall, the classic season for dark and romantic music, BLACK VEIL BRIDES and VV (Ville Valo) will co-headline a massive tour in select cities across North America. Presented by Hot Topic, the “BVB & VV” 2023 tour (featuring special guests DARK DIVINE) combines three unique bands who champion the heavy-hearted, hopeless, and broken with mixtures of high intensity and melody.

Produced by Live Nation, tickets to the tour will be available starting Tuesday, May 30 at 12 p.m. ET via presales with additional presales running throughout the week ahead of the general onsale beginning Friday, June 2 at 10 a.m. local time on For more information on the pre-sales visit HERE.

“We cannot wait to join forces with Ville Valo and give both of our audiences in North America an unforgettable experience each night,” says BLACK VEIL BRIDES front-man Andy Biersack. “This run has been in the works for quite a while. We couldn’t be happier now that we can finally share the news. Ville is an icon. We have all been fans of his, not only for his work in the hugely influential band HIM but as a torchbearer for an entire generation of rock fans and musicians.”

“There’s something tinnitus-inducingly romantic about the idea of being sandwiched nightly between BLACK VEIL BRIDES and DARK DIVINE on this autumnal trek across North America,” muses Valo. “And imagining us explore the architecture of doom and gloom from three distinctly different musical perspectives has already made the bats in my belfry suitably ravenous.”

Andy adds: “This tour is a dream come true and will be something special. DARK DIVINE is new to the scene but garnering a lot of attention quickly and rightfully so. They are hands down one of the best young bands out there, and we are certain the BVB Army and VV fans will love them.”

Committed to uncompromising expression, with a foundation in hard rock tradition and rule-breaking iconoclasm, BLACK VEIL BRIDES is a transcendent celebration of life-affirming power and anthemic catharsis. A gothic vision first summoned in a small town by an isolated kid fascinated with death, rock, theatricality, and monsters (both real and imagined),BLACK VEIL BRIDES is now a postmodern heavy metal institution with a legion of like-minded fans and supporters worldwide.

2021’s “The Phantom Tomorrow” produced BVB‘s first Top 10 single, “Scarlet Cross”. Last year’s “The Mourning” EP offered similar success with “Saviour II”, joining a rich catalog that includes “Knives And Pens” (over 160 million views on YouTube), the certified gold “Fallen Angels”, and the recently certified platinum “In The End”.

HIM, renowned as one of the most commercially successful Finnish bands of all time, has sold over ten million records. Ville Valo, the band’s front-man, released a series of beloved albums with HIM from 1997 through 2013, boasting influential modern goth-rock anthems like “Right Here In My Arms”, “Join Me In Death”, “Buried Alive By Love” and “Rip Out The Wings Of A Butterfly”. Declaring VV‘s solo debut, “Neon Noir”, a perfect record for fans of HIM, GHOST and EVANESCENCE, Kerrang! wrote, “If you’ve been seduced in Mr. Valo‘s musical twilight before, then you can now prepare to pulse in the glow of the heartagram once again.” In a VV cover story, Valo told the magazine, “It is a continuation of what I’ve done in the past and what might happen next.”
