After gaining the world’s attention nearly seven years ago with the emergence of heavy rock band BLACK VEIL BRIDES, who quickly created a buzz and has built one of the most passionate and formidable fan bases the world over.
2016 see’s ANDY BLACK step out as a solo artist with the release of his highly anticipated debut album The Shadow Side. Cinematic in scope, ambitious in concept, yet down-to-earth in execution, the album carves a brash new place for a bold new singer, using all the tools of pop craftsmanship and lush arrangements available. Songs like ‘We Don’t Have to Dance’, ‘Put the Gun Down’, and ‘Homecoming King’ are readymade anthems embodying all that it means to be young, to be an outsider, to champion oneself and one’s loved ones with a vulnerable but unashamed urgency.
“The songs are pop rock, fun songs. You know there’s certainly a kind of an element to the ’80s in there with Depeche Mode and Sisters of Mercy and that kind of thing.” – Loudwire, 2016
Australian fans are yet to witness ANDY BLACK in his solo element, but they won’t have to wait much longer! Bringing with him his full band and a long list of stellar tunes, fans will hear the likes of ‘We Don’t Have To Dance’, ‘Ribcage’ and ‘Stay Alive’, along with several other tracks that are yet to be performed live. Australian fans are in for a real treat!
“This year, the driving force of Black Veil Brides steps out with his debut solo album. In Black’s world, it doesn’t matter if you get your power from the light or the dark, as long as you eventually find it.”– – Alt Press, 2016
ANDY BLACK’S debut album ‘The Shadow Side’ is out Friday 6th May via Republic Records / Universal Music
