Biersack will be at the War Machine Marketing booth at 1 p.m. and will be signing copies of his graphic novel. 

Back in April, Biersack, under the name Andy Black, dropped the comic book and corresponding album, which debuted at No. 1 on the iTunes Rock Album Chart.

Prior to the release, Black gave us a glimpse into the upcoming album with the release of “The Promise”, “Westwood Road” and “The Ghost Of Ohio.”

The Ghost Of Ohio tells the tale of someone who died young, whose spirit inhabits an area for a hundred years looking for ways to connect while feeling forgotten.

The album, produced by Grammy nominee John Feldmann, acts as the soundtrack to the graphic novel. 

“I think I had an overall emotional renaissance when it came to doing this [project],” Black told AltPress about the space of his life dedicated to the making of The Ghost Of Ohio album and its spin-off graphic novel component.

“My ability to understand other people and just communicate and have empathy was greatly improved by this whole project. When you’re putting yourself out there on your own, there’s no safety net.”

You can check out the official music video for the album’s title track, below.

Black Veil Brides previously announced they will be reimaging their debut album in honor of its 10-year anniversary, but apparently, there will be a twist.

The band revealed there will be a new song on the updated version of We Stitch These Wounds.

Black Veil Brides guitarist Jeremy “Jinxx” Ferguson spoke to Myglobalmind to talk about the upcoming re-recorded album.

“(We Stitch These Wounds) was recorded ten years ago, and we didn’t have a large budget to do it properly,” he said. “We had to call in some favors just to get it completed.”

“This time, we will produce it ourselves and have it match to what we sound like now,” he continued. “It should be a lot of fun to remake that CD; then it will be released for the 10th anniversary. We are planning to add a new studio song on it as well to tease the fans on what they can expect from the next studio CD.”

He was asked if he felt that the album was overlooked by fans, but he said it just wasn’t up to quality when it was released.

“The songs are there; the production value was not,” he responded. “It was unfortunate at the time, but we did what we could do. It would be nice to hear them re-recorded in their full glory.”

He continued, saying that the material would be true to how it was written.

“We don’t want to change the song too much, as people are familiar with it,” he said. “We call it ‘demoitis’ — you record something as a demo, and everyone gets used to that version; then you do it properly in the studio, and everyone starts to say it’s not the same as the demo.”

“I think that happened with ‘Knives And Pens,’” he continued. “When fans heard the demo on YouTube and then we went into the studio to record it, some fans were saying that we ruined it. I don’t want to say too much, as we are not there yet … We will play all the parts with better tone and production. I believe it will be true to the original with all the same notes.”

He also revealed that the band is hitting the studio in the fall, and how it’s been going back to songs they wrote more than a decade ago.

“We are going into the studio this fall to knock it, and we are really excited about it,” he said. “We have been going over all the songs with a fine-tooth comb. Some of them we played on the road, while others haven’t been touched for ten years. We will be reliving the experience we had when we initially recorded this CD.”

He also teased a potential tour with the reimagined debut album. He said he can “definitely see it happening in 2020,” so we’ll have to wait and see.
