The Black Veil Brides LP is the follow up to the band’s Billboard Top 10 debut album Wretched and Divine: The Story of the Wild Ones.

The second EP of remixes titled 1.6 features Oliver’s take on the track, which Less Than 3 describes as “a bold remix with bass-driven beats and groovy chord productions on space-age synths, which achieves a level only attainable by Oliver.” Having just celebrated the release of their Light Years Away EP, Oliver announced a series of Fall tour dates, and has hinted about dropping an unreleased song next month
