Andy Black (Black Veil Brides) has announced that his new solo album “The Ghost Of Ohio” will be released on April 12. You can find a video for the effort’s first single “Westwood Road” below:
Black told Rock Sound the following about the new song:
“‘Westwood Road’ is about being so fucking miserable while sitting in a hotel room and absolutely hating where I am now. It’s thinking ‘this doesn’t represent me at all, this is not who I am’ and thinking of going back to being a kid and enjoying going to football games with my dad and all that sort of stuff. Now as an adult, I actually do all that stuff.”
He also talked about the ties between the album and his “Ghost Of Ohio” graphic novel:
“In many ways, the comic book is a more stylized and heightened version of these stories, because it has to be. When I went to the company who is printing [the novel], I asked them if they could help me shape all of this into a way where it would make sense. I have written concept albums before, but this is my first time putting together a graphic novel. Then the record went from there.”

Andy Biersack (Black Veil Brides) has announced that he will be releasing a new graphic novel called “The Ghost Of Ohio.” The book will coincide with the release of his new Andy Black album of the same name. The story is an original concept by Biersack and he worked on it with Josh Frankel (Z2 Comics), Sridhar Reddy, and Scott Tuft (Swamp Thing, Severed). The effort is expected to be released in mid-2019 and the Eryck Donovan (Batman) created artwork can be seen below.
“I am so excited to finally be able to share the news about The Ghost of Ohio graphic novel and upcoming solo record of the same name and inspired by the comic book story.
The truth is that I would never have discovered my love of rock music without my passion for comic books and characters like Batman and Spawn, which ultimately lead me to larger than life bands like KISS and The Misfits. To be able to combine my love of the graphic novel medium with a concept record is a dream come true and something I have wanted to do for many years. Working with the Z2 Comics team and alongside Scott Tuft and Eryk Donovan to bring this dream to reality has been an incredible process.
The story takes place in southwestern Ohio and spans across historical eras from the 1800s to modern day. The Ghost of Ohio is a tale of loneliness, redemption and strength and I hope both the album and book capture that tone while giving people some fun entertainment to escape into!”
Black Veil Brides’ Andy Biersack, aka Andy Black, has premiered a new video for his cover of “My Way.“ That track is a Frank Sinatra classic that was later covered by the Sex Pistols. Biersack said the following about the Patrick Fogarty directed clip:
“We had so much fun doing this one! Growing up I used to film my ‘concerts’ in my room with the family home video camera (many of these videos are projected on the wall in the “They Don’t Need to Understand video 😂) and we wanted to capture that same sort of feeling of being silly and singing like you’re alone in your room with no one judging. Thank you to all of the wonderful people who appeared in the video and made it so much fun!”
Black Veil Brides’ Andy Biersack, aka Andy Black, has revealed that he has recorded a cover of Frank Sinatra‘s “My Way.“ The track, which has also been covered by the Sex Pistols, will be released on Friday (August 24).
While Black Veil Brides frontman Andy Biersack and his wife Juliet Simms were asleep, a thief broke into their home and stole numerous things including personal items, Black Veil Brides memorabilia, etc. Biersack tweeted the following about that:
We had a break in last night around 1 am. The thief took years worth of BVB memorabilia including my STWOF stage outfits, countless things i have collected and hoped to share with my family one day. If you see anything on a resale site please let me know 😔 here he is: pic.twitter.com/iDktQjrNqY
I appreciate those of you who have been so kind and supportive in regards to the robbery at our home last night. The items the thief took are just material things and while they have nostalgic significance to me, at the end of the day the safety of my family is all that matters
Also for what it’s worth I do not wish the person who did this any ill will, I just hope that they can come to understand the massive privacy violation they have put us through and I hope that my memories and personal effects that were stolen end up in the right hands one day.
He came in through the garage and we were unaware of it initially. It wasn’t until we were notified by a neighbor mid day that a stranger was outside last night. Later we found storage torn open & nearly all of my BVB memorabilia/costumes were gone and my car trunk busted open https://t.co/GJYMKbfmxz
He did not take anything else, in watching the security tape footage (he covered up most of the cameras but 1) he was very specific in what he wanted and why he was there. He had 2 bags and filled them with jackets, pants, gloves, tour laminates, LPs etc.
We were asleep when the robbery itself went down/never heard anything. He was quick & efficient. He picked the lock to our gate outside & wore gardening gloves, i guess to not leave finger prints. It all sucks but again, I’d gladly lose all my stuff as long as my family is safe.
