Black Veil Brides have released a cover of The Sisters of Mercy classic Temple of Love, featuring VV (Ville Valo).
“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 favourite musicians,” explains Black Veil Brides‘ Andy Biersack. “The very first song I heard by SOM was the ‘92 version of ‘Temple of Love’ and I became obsessed with their entire catalogue. 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, it seems liked 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.”
