Black Veil Brides have just released a lyric video for their thrashy new song, "Crimson Skies," which is the third single off The Phantom Tomorrow, their forthcoming new record which will be out this fall.

This latest cut is unquestionably the heaviest of the three, opening with a crunching thrash riff and some steady double kick drums after a cymbal catch buildup. From there, Black Veil Brides let off the gas a bit and cruise forward with an urgent mid-tempo rhythm and an arena-built beat before discharging another unforgettable chorus.

Oh, and there's a couple death growls in there too and some genuinely thrashy gang shouts on this followup to "Scarlet Cross" and "Fields of Bone."

Listen to "Crimson Skies" at the bottom of the page and read the lyrics below.

A new video for the song, created by Ale & Cake Illustrations and Tim Edwards, will premiere at 12PM ET today (June 4), which continues the conceptual narrative that played out in the music video for "Fields of Bone" where the main character 'The Blackbird' encounters his nemesis known as '9.'

Black Veil Brides, "Crimson Skies" Lyrics

We're waiting for collapse
In the cold and lonely mirror
Reflections all you see
Of the world you made on your own with no mercy
And they call you a liar
But you won't surrender
And they can choose to run
With hypocrisy

It happens every day

We were born to fight for this when all they ever do is pray
Never see the truth we miss when fear consumes the rage
We take control, don't give up when all they know is corrupt
We were born to fight for this and lead us through crimson skies

The revolution lives
In the beat of our hearts and the burning sound of the flames we started in
Can you hear it now? Can you feel the hurt?
This silent hate
And they worship a liar
But we won't surrender
And we won't ever run
From the pain you see

Because now we're free

We were born to fight for this when all they ever do is pray
Never see the truth we miss when fear consumes the rage
We take control, don't give up when all they know is corrupt
We were born to fight for this and lead us through crimson skies

We were born to fight for this when all they ever do is pray
Never see the truth we miss when fear consumes the rage
We take control, don't give up when all they know is corrupt
We were born to fight for this and lead us through crimson skies

Black Veil Brides, "Crimson Skies"
