Black Veil Brides singer Andy Biersack has released a public statement following a recent incident on a flight.
The rock frontman was travelling from Charlotte, North Carolina to Los Angeles on Sunday night (October 30) with his wife, former reported that the pair were involved in a heated disagreement that led to Simms being arrested and questioned by FBI, before subsequently being released.
First of all, it sounded great and the crowd seemed to be into it. Juliet: Honestly, it was unexpected to arrive on this tour and have such an incredible response. Thankfully, Black Veil Brides have been more than accommodating and Warped Tour has been so accommodating in helping me so much. We’d been hanging out for a couple weeks at that point, but I guess we officially decided to call it what it is is here. Is it tough, with both of you being so in the middle of big points in your careers right now, to find the time? Black Veil is on tour like eight months out of the year. Seriously, he’s been helping me a lot with management, promotion, and anything I need to do, from “what shirt should we make? Andy: There are more people that say, “My wife said to say hello.” She doesn’t fuckin’ know their wife! It’s nice, because she’s such an amicable person anyway. Do you feel like you’re playing to two different audiences at once? Not to say that I didn’t know who I was in previous tours, but I just feel like this is who I am now. [Simms recently chopped off her lengthy tresses in favor of a bleach-blonde pixie cut]. He’s definitely taken a good role in helping me creatively and talking about me in interviews. I’m sure we’ll be doing something together in the near future. if it’s a Kickstarter, or if it’s another label…POZ: Do they have you locked into something through ? The single was released through a contractual option. On , it seemed like you sang a lot of classic rock material, which is a different direction from your earlier work. I feel like what’s missing today in music is that kind of sound, that kind of music, and that kind of rock star. If you think about a friendship bracelet, it’s kind of like that. She was talking about the concept behind her music and everything of kids fitting it, and having something they’re getting over or whatever… “I’m going to stop doing this thing that’s harmful to myself,” or “I’m going to be more outgoing” or “I’m going to do these things.” The bracelets all represent different vows. [Points to wrist] That red one has been on me for three years. And of all those little scenes, the biggest one is metal – whether it’s metalcore, or whatever little gradations you want to put on the term.
Andy: We didn’t meet, but we officially started dating here. People feel like they know you more when you’re on TV, when you’re on a highly rated television show for a year almost…POZ: You’re in their living room every week. When I’m performing to kids, people, grownups, or whatever; everyone has been there and everybody has the same things in their minds. When I’m performing or doing whatever I’m doing with an audience, I kind of just feel like “we are who we are, let’s all connect and be one right now.”Does performing feel different post- I’ve found my voice. I’m going to fucking take a shower and be done with it! On you were coached by Cee-Lo Green and you’ve continued working with him afterwards. Juliet: I performed with him a couple weeks ago on his new single. And whether or not we do an album together, I’m going to be… And if I do what I did on the show in my own music, I feel like that will connect with my audience, because there’s a demand for it and it’s missing. And it’s all about making vows and promises – to yourself, or to somebody else. There are a lot of little scenes, but not one overriding scene anymore.
"This song is about how circumstances in your life can come crashing down and the pain can feel almost insurmountable.
Over this past weekend, longtime couple Andy Biersack (of Black Veil Brides) and Juliet Simms married.
I am incredibly excited to start this new chapter in my life with my soul mate.
Both Biersack and Simms have since issued statements, with Biersack – who also goes by the moniker Andy Black – describing the incident as a “scary [and] traumatic experience” and citing alcohol as a factor.Initially, you were only going to do a short run on Warped Tour. He really was just like, “you’re going to be on here acoustic, you’re going to be on here for the full thing.”You’ve done Warped as a full band tour with Automatic Loveletter. A band like Bring Me The Horizon, they have a mosh-metal feeling to them. There are always elements of punk rock in the whole festival, it’s just sometimes people can’t see it that way. There’s only one band on this tour, and that’s Black Dahlia Murder, that you could probably classify as “metal” as it is. It’s not necessarily the type of music I buy and listen to, but I go by their stage and go, “Holy fuck, they’re playing guitars! Check out the video below, and watch for the twist!He performs alongside singer Dahvie Vanity in Blood On The Dance Floor.Senior Writer Jesse Richman sat down with Juliet Simms and Andy Biersack (Black Veil Brides) at Warped Tour a week or so ago for an incredibly in-depth interview. Most of the year we don’t get to spend as much time together as we’d like to, because of tours and schedules. Andy: I get up every morning at the buttcrack of dawn and help her set up her merch, and…Juliet: Even on Warped Tour, where this amazing rockstar should be sleeping in bed until 3PM, he’s getting up in the morning and carrying things, finding people with me, helping out with street teamers, and doing everything with me. Juliet: The song was very much inspired by the fact that I’d have fans come to me in person or through Facebook, Twitter, fan letters, all of that, and I’d read them. I feel like one of the reasons why we’ve connected so much is that we have a lot of the same mentality. I am going to get an album done this year for sure and out. Andy: You know, there are different divisions of punk rock, and people who believe “only this is punk rock” and “only this is punk rock.” And within that, bands started to tread that line.
