Speaking of the record, vocalist Andy Biersack has commented, “We cannot wait for the BVB army to hear ‘Vale’ in its entirety. In my opinion, this record is the most complete and exciting album we have done to date. The opportunity to work with John Feldmann once again over the course of the past two years creating ‘Vale’ was an incredible experience and I am thrilled with the collection of songs we have put together as a band. The Latin translation of ‘Vale’ is “be well, be strong” and central to the message of this record. We hope to continue to inspire our fans and friends to embrace their own individuality and inner strength.
The central narrative once again finds ‘The Wild Ones’ characters facing the challenge of moving on from the pain and anguish of their past and looking to a new chapter in their lives. This concept is one that is near to my heart, and I believe will resonate with those that find themselves cast on the fringe of society. From our inception, Black Veil Brides have stood up for the outcasts and disenfranchised, with this album as hope to give you hope, fun, and most importantly a kick ass rock and roll record.”
