Island Records

It’s been four years since we last had a studio album from Andy Biersack and co, but they return this week with a brand new LP, their fifth in all.

Recorded with producer John Feldmann, who helped Biersack helm his Andy Black solo album, and is best known for his work with All Time Low and Five Seconds Of Summer, the LP sees the band embracing a cleaner sound.

The album is another concept record, picking up directly after the events of 2013’s Wretched and Divine: The Story of the Wild Ones and taking the listener on another journey of wild adventure and rebellion…
