Vocalist, actor, writer and Cincinnati native Andy Biersack goes by many names. He appeared as Andy Six when first fronting Black Veil Brides and releases solo music as Andy Black

No matter where or who he’s performing with, he puts on a phenomenal show with deep messages and smooth vocals. Undoubtedly, we are stoked to host Biersack and Juliet Simms as November’s cover stars.

Not only are we celebrating an exclusive in-depth interview with the couple, but we are celebrating Black Veil Brides’ self-titled album anniversary. We have experienced “Heart Of Fire,” “Faithless” and nine other original BVB tracks for six years. See how well you can distinguish Biersack’s solo work from his band’s lyrics below. 

More on Andy Black

Black Veil Brides fans are getting a closer look into the life of Andy Biersack. In September, the frontman announced his forthcoming memoir, They Don’t Need To Understand. Written alongside Ryan J. Downey, Biersack opens up about his family, life and career in the new memoir.

“I’m so excited to share with you guys that my debut book is available now for preorder,” Biersack writes on Instagram. “This book is a collection of stories from my childhood growing up in Cincinnati, my early days chasing my dreams for a career in music and some key moments over the past 10 years of touring and recording in BVB.

“This book isn’t some salacious tell-all memoir from a 29-year-old or an instructional guide to being in a band. It’s a story of personal belief and tenacity in the face of the demons and fears that burden all of us in our journey to find purpose and happiness. I wanted to share with you guys my story and hopefully show that if success on any level can happen for me it can certainly happen for you.

“There is nothing remarkable about me. I have just fought hard to be heard and have been extremely fortunate to have garnered an audience of so many of you over the past 10 years. I was a lonely kid in Ohio who dreamt of being a rock star, found success as a teenager, lost track of myself and who I was and have spent the second half of my 20s working every day to be someone that is worthy of your support.”
