When he was a brash young rocker in southern Ohio, his bedroom walls and ceiling were covered with photos from the pages of our magazine. Approximately 16 years later, you know what happened next. Biersack appeared on the cover of AP more than any other artist of the past 35 years. The archetype misfit in his hometown, the only community Biersack had in his life was when the Vans Warped Tour landed in Cincinnati. There he could see the bands he worshipped and be with like-minded souls who loved the same culture he did. He started Black Veil Brides with some kindred friends, laying the groundwork for the vision he crafted for himself.

Black Veil Brides is a Roman Catholic term used for when a woman marries into the church and gives up all the pleasures of life to devote her life to God. She is then deemed a Black Veil Bride. Sorta similar to a rock band where you have to give up many things in pursuit of what you're passionate about or believe in. It also has the dichotomy of the positive and negative. The happiest time in one's life, could be getting married. And the opposite of that in one's life would be at a funeral of a loved one. It all tends to fit really well for a dark and heavy rock band. The writing process for a tour and a record began immediately.
The response to our 35th anniversary issue AP was overwhelming and special. The original impetus for the issue was to do something for the fans. And frontman Biersack knows something about fandom intimately. Not long afterward that day, he got to perform with the object of his fandom, the Misfits. Give them a chance. The subject of fandom is something that Biersack is acutely familiar with. Growing up in southern Ohio, his bedroom was festooned with photos of bands torn out of issues of magazines like AP. Nowadays, BVB get messages from fans who live vicariously through them while listening to multiple plays of Wretched And Divine. So for me, I just want to thank everybody who has continued to support us this much and everybody who is thinking of us in this time [as] something that helps them.
