Black Veil Brides was formed in 2006 when then 15-year-old vocalist, Andy Biersack, began seeking players to create a vision of a modern day heavy metal band, combining the theatrics and passion of Misfits, Motley Crue, and Kiss, with lyrical content that pertains to the downtrodden outcasts of society. With a goal of bringing back the community and passion that was once so prevalent in rock and roll, he moved to LA in 2009 recruiting Ashley Purdy (bass), Jinxx (guitar), Jake Pitts (lead guitar), and Christian Coma (drums).
The band has released three full-length albums to date: We Stitch These Wounds, Set The World On Fire and their latest release Wretched And Divine: The Story Of The Wild Ones. That album debuted at #7 on the Billboard Top 200, reached the #1 spot on the iTunes Top Album Chart and is the band’s best debut to date.
The band has garnered numerous accolades winning awards from Revolver, Alternative Press and Kerrang as well as performed at the 2012 Revolver Golden Gods Awards. The band is currently set to release their new album BVB IV.
