Black Veil Brides have been caught via Instagram playing “live” at Warped Tour 2013 in Ventura, California without any functioning amps. UH OH.
The caption that accompanies the photo on O’s instagram is:
“Dude! Where are all the speakers” The Black Veil Brides show us how it’s done on the warp tour in Ventura, by the way, the best venue on the whole tour. No speakers, no tube amps, only computers. Ventura, Calif.
This is not going to sit well with a lot of people despite it actually just being one of the modern ways of musical output. While we’re not condoning or justifying Black Veil Brides’ apparent lies, the analogue days are over and showmanship is – as it always been – still in. Computers are the new tube amps. I 100 per cent guarantee that you’re reading this on the internet, for instance.
If you’re still not buying the legitimacy of all this, here’s a question: How many of these do you think are real?
That’s Jeff Hanneman’s rig.
