Black Veil Brides have told NME they "couldn't live without women on tour".

The black-clad rockers made this confession as part of a video interview with NME at the recent Download Festival, which you can view it here.

Frontman Andy Biersack and bassist Ashley Purdy opened up about who is the most rock and roll member of the band, who has the worst habits and how long they have gone without sleeping.

"65 days", replied Biersack. "I am a clinical zombie. I go to a lot of self-help groups in the day and then I can sleep pretty well at night."

As for who has the dirtiest tour habits? "We call [guitarist] Jinxx stinky bones. His bones smell. He can shower forever, but he will always emanate stink. He calls himself the cockroach. He knows she smells a bit like poo."

Biersack recently (June 18) suffered three shattered ribs after falling from a 15 foot high balcony during a gig in Hollywood, California.

Thanks for the report to NME.com.

    The longest anyone has gone without sleep is 11 days, your body would shut down and die if it went 65 days without sleep.

    This article didn't get very much into the living without women part, did it? Anyways, I don't think the 65 days was meant to be taken that seriously.

    ^have to agree, they are are an awesome band and even if to you they are "gay try-hards", they are out their touring and kicking-ass and you are sitting at home typing angry hate comments on your computer. Get a life.

    you know, critise them all you like but they've already won a bunch of awesome awards (which they totally deserve) and alice cooper even praised them that they were bringing the true 80's feel back. so yeah you can pay them out and say they're crap but most of the world (and statistics) will disagree with you. to be honest it sounds like you guys are just hating for something to do. Plus they get laid a million times more then you do so suck it haha. BVB rock!!!

    Hey guys, I know I'm gonna get lots of hate for this but I don't think these guys are terrible for doing what they love. They loved spending most of their childhood dressing up like Kiss and Motley Crew. They're not trying too hard [@Siege312] because they love the theatricality of performing and wearing the makeup. The reason why they wouldn't be considered a "real rock band" is because of the music mainstream is. Some people are gonna think what I believe is ****in stupid, but its like people are trying to hate them. They had a lot of people hate them all throughout their lives, they shouldn't have to take anymore shit. If this is what they want to do, and you don't like it, shut the **** up

    ^ Exactly. Wasn't a big part of rock n roll not trying or caring? They try and care too hard even. Now, I'm not one that says DURR IMAGE FIRST MUSIC SECOND because sound is the most important aspect to music (common sense), so let's judge their music and not how they look or act. ... Yeah musically they are also trying too hard. Very generic and formulated.

    Andy Sixx can't even sing, they're trying too hard to be some sort of 80's hard rock band (Motley Crue for example) but as stated earlier it comes across as fake. There are alot more deserving bands than these guys out there right now. "65 days", replied Biersack. "I am a clinical zombie. I go to a lot of self-help groups in the day and then I can sleep pretty well at night." Bullshit. That's him trying to get attention, not only is it impossible to go 65 days, over two months, without sleep, the self help group stuff is from Fight Club. Which Andy Sixx is a fan of, if I recall.

Besides that, I accidentally saw these guys in Columbia and they are without a doubt the worst live band I have ever seen. Was just gonna say that Andy Sixx seems to be turning into Ed Norton from Fight Club! Fact is, BVB try too hard to be rock n' roll. Wearing that amount of makeup and looking like live Halloween costumes isn't rock n' roll. Very few can pull it off. Alice Cooper being one of them, but that was in the 70's. They try to be badass but it looks pathetic and weak. I guarantee if BVB came across a real rock band in the 70's or 80's they'd have the shit kicked out of them by the likes of Guns N' Roses, Sex Pistols, Megadeth etc. for suggesting they're a real rock band
    Just thought that you should know that Alice Cooper said that Black Veil Brides was a true rock and roll band. And if you hate them so much then why are you wasting time making a comment about what you hate focus on what you like. I'm sure that you would be so much happier if you did.

    Really? I thought they were gay... anyways 65 days straight without sleep is impossible

    Go to self-help groups to cure insomnia?.... Is it just me or does that resemble the first act of Fight Club? Besides that, I accidentally saw these guys in Columbia and they are without a doubt the worst live band I have ever seen.

    Listened to a bit more they are like a cheap EtF (who I like). Why are all emo guys built like pipe cleaners and all emo girls fat as hell?
    MegadethFan18
    They all have literally the exact same hair style! Pretty bad news story. I just listened to them for the first time, the song "Knives and Pens" though the intro riff was pretty cool then the vox kicked in; bertstare.jpg
