Biography

Black Veil Brides is an American hard rock band consisting of vocalist Andy Biersack, Jinxx (rhythm guitar, violin), Jake Pitts (lead guitar), Christian “CC” Coma (drums), and Lonny Eagleton (bass). Former members of the lineup include drummer Sandra Alvarenga, guitarist Chris Hollywood, and bassist Ashley Purdy.

The American rock band has gained notoriety for rising through the ranks and carrying the torch of 1980s glam metal acts, a genre pioneered by artists like Kiss and Mötley Crüe. Like these bands, the members of Black Veil Brides are known for their use of black makeup, long hair, body paint, and elaborate costumes on stage. They also cite influences from Def Leppard and many death metal and rock bands.

They’ve appeared at many festivals and embarked on multiple tours, including the Sacred Ceremony tour, the God Save the Scream tour, the Royal Family Clothing tour, and many more. The meaning of the band name ties back to a Roman Catholic term used for a woman who “marries” into the church.

Andy Six: The Band’s Wild Frontman

  • The man responsible for the band’s lead vocals, Andy Dennis Biersack, was born on December 26, 1990, in Cincinnati, Ohio. As a member of Black Veil Brides, Biersack is known by the nickname “Andy Six.” He has also released several solo albums under the alias Andy Black.
  • Biersack is known for living a wild rock ‘n roll lifestyle. He told Revolver, “I never anticipated seeing 40. I smoke two packs a day and drink like a camel. I just don't really think about death. I know I'm gonna die one day, but if I can achieve all of my goals and live exactly the way I want to before then, I'll have no regrets when I die.” Often tempting fate from the stage, Biersack has had several injuries during live performances. He even missed the first week of the tour due to several broken ribs right before the Vans Warped Tour.
  • Andy has an estimated net worth of $4 million.
  • He is 6 feet 3 inches tall.
  • Since 2016, Andy has been married to Juliet Simms, a rock singer, poet, and music producer.
  • Biersack starred in the 2017 supernatural thriller American Satan, directed by Ash Avildsen. The film also features Ben Bruce of Asking Alexandria and Drake Bell. In American Satan, Andy plays Johnny Faust, a musician who makes a deal with the devil in exchange for stardom. The film has gained a cult following since its release.
