Andy Black has been teasing fans endlessly about his forthcoming graphic novel The Ghost of Ohio and sophomore album of the same name. Today, the Black Veil Brides frontman has unleashed a black and white photo with Friday’s date on it.
That said, it definitely looks like something could be coming from Black on February 15. Check out the teaser below.

While the photo doesn’t clarify exactly what is to come, many fans are speculating that it could be a song from Black’s forthcoming solo album, or even the whole thing.

While these fan theories could be true, Black tweeted just four hours earlier, “Itinere.” Thanks to one very smart Twitter user, the word allegedly translates to “tour” in Latin.

Recently, Black unveiled the prologue to his graphic novel. The audio recording gives the background of the ghost. According to the recording, the ghost grew up in a small town with a lack of acceptance. After being accused of a crime he did not commit, the ghost was sentenced to death.
“Sometimes when something so terrible happens to an innocent soul, the universe has a way of fixing the damage that was done,” the prologue says. “And on the evening of December 26, that’s exactly what happened. On that night you see, he returned from the dead. This is the ghost of Ohio.”
Before that, Black completely revamped his Twitter by hiding his tweets. Then, he released a short promo video, revealing that he was the “Ghost of Ohio.” Additionally, he announced that “ABII,” which is speculated to be his sophomore album, is “coming soon.”
