Black Veil Brides Debut Video For Their Cover Of “My Friends” From ‘Sweeney Todd’


Platinum-certified goth rockers Black Veil Brides are streaming a video for their cover “My Friends” from the musical ‘Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street‘. Vocalist/keyboardist Andy Biersack commented:

“From the first time I picked up my dad’s copy of the original cast recording and heard Len Cariou‘s powerful and sinister portrayal of Sweeney, I was hooked on this show. As a little kid, I would insist that all my family gather around and watch me perform songs like ‘My Friends‘ in my full homemade costume.

It’s beyond a dream come true to get to do a rendition of this song and collaborate with our longtime friend and visionary director Joshua Shultz on the video. We wanted to do something that felt true to the spirit of the original and all subsequent iterations while also feeling distinctly Black Veil Brides and we are thrilled with how it turned out.”

An official music video for the song is available via Playbill. A new EP titled “Bleeders” from the group will be out on June 21st. Look for Black Veil Brides out as support to Falling In Reverse this summer on the following trek that will also feature Dance Gavin Dance and Tech N9ne, among others.
