Record Deal & Debut Album In September 2009, using the current name, Black Veil Brides signed with the independent label Standby Records.6 The writing process for a tour and a record began immediately. In December 2009, the band embarked on their first US tour entitled "On Leather Wings".
Record Deal & Debut Album The group's debut album We Stitch These Wounds was released July 13, 2010 and sold over 10,000 copies in its first week, ranking at #36 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, and #1 on the Billboard Independent chart.78 In late 2010, Black Veil Brides went on tour with bands The Birthday Massacre, Dommin and Aural Vampire.
Record Deal & Debut Album Black Veil Brides first came to the attention of Lava Records president Jason Flom when the chief music officer at Hot Topic, John Kirkpatrick, told him about the incredible buzz that building around the band, with their t-shirt attracting the second biggest sales in the country at that point. What was even more impressive was that they had built their fanatical following in a "DIY" fashion, such as in making their own self-funded videos.11 When Flom then heard their music and met the group, he decided that they were exactly what he'd been looking for, later commenting to Hit Quarters
Rebels EP It was announced via Andy's Twitter that they would be releasing an EP entitled "Rebels". They released a trailer on You Tube which shows Andy recording vocals for their cover of the song "Rebel Yell" by Billy Idol, which was to appear on the EP. Another trailer for the EP was released, in which Andy gives a little bit more details about it.
Rebels EP The third and final trailer about the EP was released on November 14, in which Andy gets into detail about the track "Coffin" which was a left over song from the previous album Set the World On Fire that was to be released on the EP. In an interview with Chris Droney from Glasswerk National, they hinted that there would be a guest guitarist to appear on the EP, who eventually turned out to be Zakk Wylde from Ozzy Osbourne and Black Label Society, who plays the guitar solo on the cover version of the song Unholy, originally performed by Kiss. Rebels was eventually released on December 12, 2011.
