BLACK VEIL BRIDES Frontman's ANDY BLACK Project: Trailer For 'The Homecoming Tour' Documentary
An official trailer for the forthcoming "The Homecoming Tour" documentary from BLACK VEIL BRIDES singer Andy Biersack's solo project, ANDY BLACK, is available below.
ANDY BLACK's debut album, "The Shadow Side", was released last May via Lava/Republic. The disc was produced by John Feldmann and included collaborations with FALL OUT BOY's Patrick Stump, Gerard Way, 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER's Ashton Irwin and ALL TIME LOW's Rian Dawson.
Asked what ANDY BLACK sounds like, Biersack told U.K.'s Kerrang! magazine: "I think my intention for this was to go as far in the other direction as possible. Sonically, the goal was to really play with music and a lot of different stuff, to have a lot of odd instrumentation and to have a lot of programmed stuff, keyboards and more classic, almost pop-rock guitar. It's more U2 than MEGADETH. There are no guitar solos on the record. There's a lot of drumming styles; there's some weird sleigh bells. It was about playing with music and seeing what happened. We came up with something in the vein of stuff I love — U2, Adam Ant… It's somewere between Springsteen, new romantic and modern goth-pop music."
Biersack previously described ANDY BLACK as a "fun and artistic way for me to try something that musically I wouldn't want to force into BLACK VEIL BRIDES."
BLACK VEIL BRIDES recently completed work on its fifth album for an early 2017 release. A track from the effort, "The Outsider", was made available last month.
