"We’ve been discussing doing this since 2013," says Black Veil Brides lead guitarist Jake Pitts, when asked what prompted the Californian rock group to return to the studio and re-record their debut full-length, We Stitch These Wounds, in its entirety. 

The release of the new version, titled Re-Stitch These Wounds, will also be marked by a live streamed set from LA’s legendary Whisky A Go Go venue, where the quintet will be performing the album in full.
