It may be a little while until Halloween, but the spooky season is getting a head start this year thanks to the Trinity of Terror tour.
The triple-headlining bill features Black Veil Brides, Motionless in White and Ice Nine Kills. As BVB frontman Andy Biersack tells ABC Audio, he’s long dreamed of launching a tour like this.
“Us and Motionless have toured together before, it was, like, 11 years ago, and both of our careers are in a very different place nowadays,” Biersack says. “So we just thought it would always kind of be, like, the ultimate thing.”
He adds, “And then Ice Nine Kills has just grown exponentially over the years and have just gotten so huge in kind of the world that are bands exist in. And so it just seemed like an obvious thing to be able to try to get us all three together.”
Every night on the tour, the three bands will play a full-length, full-production set, with a rotating order.
“I think the biggest goal is to try to utilize as much video as possible,” Biersack says of the stage setup.
In addition to having easily abbreviated band names, BVB, MiW and INK all share a certain common horror-esque vibe. Still, Biersack says you can expect “three very different shows” on the tour.
“You’ve got Motionless, who is a traditionally very heavy band,” Biersack says. “You’ve got Ice Nine Kills, who’s very theatrical in terms of lyric and tone, and their stage show involves a lot of theatrics. And then we come from a more rock ‘n’ roll, hard rock singalong, big guitar solos, gang vocals kind of world.”
The Trinity of Terror tour launches this Thursday, March 17, in Mesa, Arizona.
