According to his Twitter, Andy Biersack, frontman of Black Veil Brides, has shattered three ribs on his left side, allegedly from jumping off the balcony at a show. He fell from a 15 foot wall and smashed his ribs on a railing, but decided to go on with the performance anyway.
The injury happened during Black Veil Brides' show at Hollywood and Highland last night (June 18).
Read some tweets from Andy and Matt Good (guitarist of D.R.U.G.S.) about the situation below.
