Black Veil Brides are in the midst of working on their new album and fans are excited to hear the new music! Frontman and Founder of BVB, Andy Biersack has announced a new side project.  We do know that Andy has a strong passion for a variety of music styles and genres, we saw him rocking out to Danzig at the Revolver Golden Gods Awards last year and enjoyed his narration on William Control’s Revelator, we know of his strong love for KISS as he dressed up in KISS makeup to watch their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Now we can enjoy a new side of Andy that he is ready to share, his dark side… Introducing Andy Black.  Andy posted the photo below on his Instagram:

The caption explains more about his side project:

I would like to take this opportunity to share with you guys something that I have been working on and that I am very excited about releasing! I have always been interested in a broad spectrum of music and though the music that BVB makes is certainly my favorite stylistically, I am also heavily influenced by the dark melodic synth laden styles of bands from the 80’s such as Sisters of Mercy, Depeche Mode, Lords of the New Church etc. Over the last year or so I decided in my down town that it might be fun to take a stab at writing some material that is more in the “dark wave” vein simply for fun and as a hobby. I have now written almost a complete albums worth of material…some on my own and some in collaboration with friends and other artists but all of which I am very proud of and excited about. This project is not a band, BVB is my life and biggest passion and there is no reason to fear that I will lose sight of that. #bvb4 is coming along better than anything we’ve ever done and it is my number 1 priority. Please consider this new project to be a fun and artistic way for me to try something that musically I wouldn’t want to force into BVB etc. I am calling this project #ANDYBLACKas to me it represents an alter ego and I felt that it was important to differentiate this as a side project while still maintaining a connection to BVB by using the “BLACK” moniker. As far as my plans for the project we will be releasing a music video soon and may release more online over a long period but again BVB is my main focus, this is just something I had a lot of fun doing and I hope you will enjoy it too! If you’d like to read my first full interview regarding #ANDYBLACK please pick up this weeks issue of KERRANG! Magazine!! Photo by: Paul Harries


So stay tuned and get ready for some Andy Black. We look forward to getting to know this alter ego of Andy and getting to hear what Andy Black has in store for us!
