Yesterday (9 October) Black Veil Brides revealed details of their next album.

The artwork for Wretched and Divine was described by some on Twitter as "amazing", while others said it was "so bad" it made them "cringe".

Black Veil Brides played at Download festival this summer, where they were heckled by parts of the crowd who threw plastic bottles at them.

After their performance, lead singer Andy Biersack said: "It's really important for us as a band to show our fans how important it is that they stand up for themselves.

"It's not easy to be the weird kid or the rebel.

"We know that listening to Black Veil Brides, wearing Black Veil Bride shirts or being in Black Veil Brides isn't always the most popular thing in the world."

Previous Kerrang! tours have been headlined by bands such as Bullet For My Valentine, Biffy Clyro and Good Charlotte.

Last year's original headliner, Sum 41, had to cancel because front man Deryck Whibley was suffering from a back injury.

They were replaced by The Blackout.
