Performer Info

Black Veil Brides: Black Veil Brides is a unique combination of metalcore, hair metal, rock, and just a little KISS. Their heavy sound is complemented by a violin (played by Jinxx) and is characterized by a slow yet heavy driving sound. Their look is that of a goth version of Kiss, with the band wearing black and white make-up (each member has their own look) and big, styled black hair. Black Veil Brides concert dates are truly an event, complete with a high energy audience and a high energy performance by the band. While the band hasn't been around for a long time, it hasn't stopped Black Veil Brides from playing tour dates across the country with some popular bands in the black/death metal scene. While Black Veil Brides are done with tour dates for 2011, the success of their recent concert dates guarantees more live performances soon.

The band formed in 2006 and is currently composed of Ashley Purdy on bass and back-up vocals, Jake Pitts on lead guitar, Jinxx on guitar and occasionally the electric violin, Christian Coma on drums, and their charismatic lead singer Andy Six. The band has gathered a large and diverse following due to their blending of contemporary metal and 70's/80's rock. Black Veil Brides was formed in Cincinnati and were easily signed to StandBy Records in September of 2009, just after releasing their single "Knives and Pens". By December of that year they were already on their first US concert tour entitled On Leather Wings. Their first album, We Stitch These Wounds, didn't release until July of 2010 but quickly rose to number one on the Billboard Independent chart.

Black Veil Brides has the release of their second album, Set the World on Fire slated for June 21, 2011. It has already been announced that the album's title track will be used in the upcoming Transformers: Dark of the Moon movie. Recently, the band headlined 2011 tour dates on the Ap tour, which featured Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows, I See Stars, Versaemerge, and Conditions. With the release of an album in June, fans can expect more tour dates in 2011 in promotion of the album. Despite Black Veil Brides' recent rise to success, there will be plenty of opportunities to see them on concert dates and immerse in new music.
