Your Official Guide to the #APMAs features cover star and your 2017 host, Andy Biersack. The Black Veil Brides frontman and Andy Black alter ego talks about everything, from his upcoming debut on the silver screen (appearing opposite film legend Malcolm McDowell in American Satan, produced by Sumerian Records founder Ash Avildsen) to smaller screens (the wisecracking on his Patreon-funded talk show, The Andy Show) to his position front-and-center hosting this year’s APMAs.

Is there anything this guy can’t do? We thought not, and that’s why he’s here to take center stage at this year’s event.

Plus, we’ve got everything you need to know about all of this year’s star-studded cast of nominees, including testimonials from some of your favorite artists about this year's Artist Of The Year nominees, posters featuring handwritten lyrics from all the musicians up for Song Of The Year, the real stories behind all of this year’s best music videos, awesome posters of the bands with the Most Dedicated Fanbases made by none other than fans and tons more.

Pick up your copy below, and don’t miss out on any of the action! Stream the show for free live via Amazon Music at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT on Monday, July 17.
