Der als HIM Sänger berühmt gewordene VILLE VALO (VV) hat sich mit der kalifornischen Rockband BLACK VEIL BRIDES für ein Sisters Of Mercy Cover, `Temple of Love` , zusammengetan. Beide Acts gehen in drei Monaten (Spetember – Oktober) auf eine gemeinsame US Co-Headliner Tour.
BLACK VEIL BRIDES Sänger Andy Biersack erzählt:
“I first discovered Sisters of Mercy in my freshman year of high school, I had a poster of AFI from the Art of Drowning era and Davey was wearing a SOM shirt and so as was often the case back then I went on the hunt to find the music that had inspired my favorite musicians. The very first song I heard by SOM was the ‘92 version of ‘Temple of Love’ and I became obsessed with their entire catalog. We’ve talked about doing a BVB version of this song for years and when given the opportunity to collaborate with fellow SOM fan and goth rock icon VV (Ville Valo) it seems like the perfect situation. We are thrilled with how it turned out and hope that anyone who’s familiar with the track enjoys our spin on it and those who have never heard the original enjoy it and maybe this will lead them down the path to the greatness that is SOM like that poster of AFI did for me when I was a kid.”
