Andy Biersack, the 22-year-old lead singer of Black Veil Brides, is one of the most captivating artists in the AP community today. Growing up in suburban Cincinnati, Andy quickly found himself to be the different kid on the block. Since he was young, he knew that he wanted to be on stage fronting a successful rock band and touring the world, and repeatedly asked his parents if he could make a go of it "yet??" After a stint at acting, some personal setbacks and struggling with his own high expectations for himself, the young singer-to-be worked past the voices of those that said he couldn't succeed to become someone who has. (And every single one of his devoted fans believe that too.)
Electronic rock music became a lot more fun when the Colorado-based duo Breathe Carolina launched onto the scene more than six years ago. With the hit single "Blackout," from 2011's Hell Is What You Make It, having propelled them to the top of both the radio and club charts nationwide, the band are now working on their fourth album, Savages, due out next year. Frontmen David Schmitt and Kyle Even discuss the band's formation, recording their first few records and touring life.
Former Dance Gavin Dance/Emarosa singer, Jonny Craig, has seen his fair share of troubles throughout the past few years. After battling drug addiction and self-destructive behavior, Craig entered a rehab facility in 2012 to get a hold of his life and career. Now the frontman is back with his own project, new music and a humbled lifestyle, thankful that he's been given another chance to live life to its fullest.
With their previous album, Scottsdale, Arizona's the Summer Set felt like they had tried to force a sound they weren't ready for just yet. Now, returning with a new album of super catchy pop-rock tunes, the eccentric-membered five-piece feel back at home with lessons learned and stories to tell. All thanks to Jean Gomez.
