Andy Black unveils uplifting new single, “The Promise”
This one hit us right in the feels.March 29, 2019
“The Promise” comes accompanied by a lyric video which was teased just a few short days before.
The track’s lyrics will hit you right in the feels while tugging on your little emo heart. Black’s sophomore solo album will also be accompanied by The Ghost Of Ohio graphic novel, both released on April 12.
Check out the lyric video for “The Promise” below.
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.
“I think I had an overall emotional renaissance when it came to doing this [project],” Biersack 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’re not part of a gang of people who think, ‘Who cares what anybody else says? It’s us against the world.’ Which is great, but when you’re in a position when you’ve done that through your teenage years and into your adult life, you inherently close yourself off to the human condition.
Earlier this month, Black released the official music video for the album’s title track, which you can watch below.
