It’s been a big year for the band—Andy Biersack and company just released their very first live DVD, Alive And Burning.

The BVB Army won Most Dedicated Fans at last year’s ceremony, and they’ve certainly shown it by helping the band win Album Of The Year.

On receiving the Skully, Biersack announced plans to give the award to the family of their friend Chris Holly who passed away recently. Wearing a locket of Holly's ashes around his neck, Andy said, “Chris is with us every day.”
