BLACK VEIL BRIDES is currently on the road as the support act for AVENGED SEVENFOLD on the "Buried Alive Tour". The trek kicked off November 23 in Fort Myers, Florida and is scheduled to conclude on the West Coast in mid-December.
BLACK VEIL BRIDES postponed several shows on its recent U.K. tour after singer Andrew Biersack broke his nose in Luxembourg on October 26.
In an interview with Revolver magazine, Biersack said he suffered his most recent injury as a result of his "typical routine to entertain the crowd . rolling around and being crazy."
