Black Veil Brides frontman Andy Biersack has announced details of a UK tour under his new solo name, Andy Black. Full dates and ticket details are below.
The metal frontman has been working on his 'dramatically' different solo album since 2014, which is said to draw upon his 80s goth and synth-pop influences - with the record featuring the likes of Gerard Way as well as Fall Out Boy's Patrick Stump, Alkaline Trio's Matt Skiba and Blink 182's Mark Hoppus.
"It's completely different, very unlike my entire career, which has been spent in a collaborative effort with four other individuals," Biersack told Kerrang. "There's also a precedent when it comes to making a Black Veil Brides record. "At this point now, this is our fifth record that we're making — and that's not to say that we go in with a cookie-cutter approach, but we certainly know stylistically what we like. The odd thing about the solo record was there was no precedent."
An announcement on his solo album is expected soon. Meanwhile, dates of his upcoming UK tour with Creeper as support are below, with tickets on sale from 9am on Friday 11 March here.
