Today marks a new era for rock legends Black Veil Brides. Along with dropping a new music video for “Bleeders” and announcing the forthcoming Bleeders EP, the five-piece has officially signed with Spinefarm Records. The company boasts an array of top rock and metal acts including Sleep Token, Dayseeker, and Creeper.

The forthcoming EP is set to release on June 21, according to their website. The three-song release will contain the title track, as as well as covers of Sweeney Todd’s “My Friends” and U2‘s “Sunday Bloody Sunday.”

“Prepare for a bloody symphony unlike any other… We are pleased to unveil ‘Bleeders.’ Inspired by the dark tale of Sweeney Todd,” the band shared on Instagram. In the music video, frontman Andy Biersack definitely gives “Demon Barber Of Fleet Street” vibes. With yearning, powerful vocals, crushing guitar riffs, and classic Black Veil Brides theatrics, this is proof that the future is thrilling for fans. “Aren’t you lucky you’re a bleeder/So hold your razor wide/And swing it to the skies,” Biersack sings, referencing the Broadway musical. Check out the cinematic, 19th-century London-themed music video below.

The BLEEDERS tour with CreeperDark Divine, and Ghostkid recently kicked off on April 25 in San Fransisco, CA. Currently, the band is working with the American Red Cross to hold a virtual blood drive while on tour. “As Bleeders, it’s our mission to effect positive change. Help us to help others in this time of need,” the band says. As of now, BVB fans have pledged 1,673 pints. Those attending shows can present proof of donation at the merch table for an exclusive merch package including a signed poster, pin, and patch.
