On Friday we had the Black Veil Brides in our Exeter store for a signing session and exclusive interview! Signing whatever Black Veil Brides merch their fans had to offer, this was just a few days after BVB kicked off their UK band tour. The guys were larger than life in person, looking dark and cool in their trademark make up and outfits and we had the chance to ask them some of our own questions, as well as a few posted by our Facebook fans. Safe to say, the BVB guys were great to talk to and their fans had an excellent time getting to meet one of the top alternative rock bands in the world! Don’t forget, we still have a pair of tickets to be won for the Bristol leg of their tour on the 1st of November (competition closes on the 21st) so get entering for a chance to see the epic Black Veil Brides perform live! We also have a whole host of Black Veil Brides merch, including totally unique items that you won’t find anywhere else, for true fans of their extreme style and sound. Linked is a video with all the BVB action at Exeter last Friday, including our interview and we also have a transcript below!
