Andy Black (AKA Andy Biersack) is sharing the last part of his audio series, after sending fans into a frenzy for almost a week. “Part 5” answers some questions about what he’s teasing and who’s the Ghost of Ohio.

The Black Veil Brides frontman tweeted the same phone number he’d been teasing, with the words “PART 5” and “FINALE.” The image which accompanies the tweet is a map of Ohio, Biersack’s home state, and the letters “A” and “B.”

That’s the last part of audio messages the musician started sharing in January, which many fans believe are tied to his upcoming graphic novel and sophomore solo album, The Ghost of Ohio. “Part 5” also answers a lot of these questions.

The Ghost Of Ohio is expected to be released by Z2 Comics in March of 2019. His sophomore album of the same name is meant to be released at the same time as the comic, complimenting each other in terms of concept and theme.

“The record is meant to be a soundtrack for the comic book,” he explains. “The focus was to do songs that felt like they represented, in terms of tone, the different emotions of the story. There are songs that are just straight-up fun pop songs. There are songs that are dark, moody, gothic songs.”

The teasing

Biersack began dropping cryptic photos on Twitter mid-January, sharing a “Part 1” teaser just a few days ago. “Part 1” involved fans calling a phone number and hearing a recording of what they believe to be an excerpt from the comic.

Then, on Feb. 2, fans had to discover “Part 2” using the same phone number but a different recording. That day, Black also shared an ambiguous photo on Twitter.

On Monday, he shared “Part 3,” which you can hear below. He also shared yet another photo.

On Jan. 5, he shared “Part 4,” alongside a super creepy photo of half of his face.


Today, Biersack took to Twitter one more time to share the last part of the audio series. You can hear it below:

A fan shared the whole message, which ends with Andy saying “This is the Ghost of Ohio.” If you can’t call the number, you can read it in full below:

What fans believe it all means

Fans are understandably freaking out and expecting an announcement about the new album and comic book some time this week. However, they couldn’t help but notice something else: The ghost returns from the dead on December 26th. The date is also Biersack’s birthday.

Could this mean HE is the ghost of Ohio? Fans certainly think so.
