Black Veil Brides & Ville Valo Team Up On New Cover Of Sisters Of Mercy’s “Temple Of Love”


Ahead of their upcoming tour together, Black Veil Brides and Ville Valo (ex-HIM) have released a new cover of Sisters Of Mercy‘s 1992 take on their 1983 single “Temple Of Love“.

Black Veil Brides vocalist Andy Biersack had the following to say about this collaborative take on the track:

“I first discovered Sisters of Mercy in my freshman year of high school. I had a poster of AFI from The Art Of Drowning era and Davey was wearing a SOM shirt, and so, as was often the case back then, I went on the hunt to find the music that had inspired my favorite musicians. The very first song I heard by SOM was the ’92 version of ‘Temple of Love‘ and I became obsessed with their entire catalog.

We’ve talked about doing a BVB version of this song for years and when given the opportunity to collaborate with fellow SOM fan and goth-rock icon VV, it seems liked the perfect situation. We are thrilled with how it turned out and hope that anyone who’s familiar with the track enjoys our spin on it and those who have never heard the original enjoy it and maybe this will lead them down the path to the greatness that is SOM like that poster of AFI did for me when I was a kid.”
