Black Veil Brides Frontman Launches Solo Project Andy Black: 'I Want to Do This '80s Synth Thing'
Black Veil Brides frontman Andy Biersack has announced the launch of his solo project Andy Black, along with intentions to delve into the dark wave domain.

Chatting with Kerrang! magazine, the singer made sure to point out that Andy Black is "not a band," but rather "a fun and artistic way for me to try something that musically I wouldn't want to force into Black Veil Brides."

"My whole life, I've loved '80s synth and goth rock like the Sisters of Mercy and Depeche Mode," Andy said (via Blabbermouth). "My biggest love has always been the music Black Veil Brides make, but that doesn't mean I don't listen to or enjoy other things. The older I get, the more interest I have in writing other kinds of music."

"There's no place for Depeche Mode and the Sisters of Mercy in the music I make with my band. If I was a fan, I wouldn't want to hear that on a Black Veil Brides record. It was important for me and for the integrity of the band not to tarnish it," the vocalist noted.

Reassuring fans about his BVB commitment, Biersack concluded, "I made it very clear. I told the band what was going on and made it clear it was a passion project on the side, and everybody in the band gets it. And because we're doing this Black Veil record at the moment, it's a non-issue, because they know I'm totally committed to the band."
