Soon after the departure of bassist Ashley, Black Veil Brides has announced their new bass player, dropped 2 singles & announce a tour.
On 29th November 2019 Lonny Eagleton, who previously featured on Andy Biersacks "Ghost of Ohio" tour in March earlier this year.
Lonny released this statement:
"Thrilled to announce that I am joining Black Veil Brides as their new bassist. Having been a long time dedicated fan of this band, I could not be more grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this new era. Before I had any affiliation with the members, I used to fantasise about playing in this band, playing the music, wearing the makeup and stage outfits, so for that to become my reality is completely surreal. It was only a couple of years ago that I was standing in the audience at concerts, singing along, trying to catch guitar picks. To now see myself in the videos, and hear myself on the recordings is a feeling I can't even begin to explain.
I look forward to this new beginning as the newest member of Black Veil Brides - Lonny Eagleton (Twitter)"
It is still unclear as to why Ashley has left Black Veil Brides.
Alongside the announcement of Lonny Eagleton, BVB dropped an EP title "The Night" which features 2 tracks:
It has also been noted that the band is working on a reissue of their album "We Stitch These Wounds" which was released in July 2010. The band said they want to give the songs from the album a "Fair Shake".
Black Veil Brides are also set to go on tour with In This Moment on the "In Between Tour" alongside Ded and Raven Black.
