Today Andy Six from Black Veil Brides tells us the biblical story that inspired the song "Fallen Angels" from their brand new album "Set the World on Fire," which hit stores this week. Here is the story:
When the angels fell to earth they fornicated with humans and created the Nephilim. Nephilim is sort of this in-between character and creature where they're not divine and they're not evil, so they really have no where to go and they ban together - the seven of them. But I suppose for our purposes I guess it would be five. So they band together and create a society of marauders in this post-apocalyptic world.
For us it represented the ultimate outcasts and the idea of being the sort of person who is into rock music or on the outskirts or fringes of society. It's about understanding that we are all innately different, but that we can also band together in some way. So I guess in terms of what the song is about, it's mainly an anthem for the outcasts.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
