After gaining the worlds 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.
