Ashley Purdy / Black Veil Brides Info
Black Veil Brides was formed in 2006 when then15-year-old vocalist Andy Biersack began seeking players to create a vision of a modern day heavy metal band, combining the theatrics and passion of Misfits, Motley Crue, and Kiss with lyrical content that pertains to the downtrodden outcasts of society. With a goal of bringing back the community and passion that was once so prevalent in rock 'n' roll, he moved to LA in 2009 and recruited Ashley Purdy (bass), Jinxx (guitar), Jake Pitts (lead guitar), and Christian Coma (drums).
The band has released three full-length albums to date: We Stitch These Wounds, Set The World On Fire and their latest release, Wretched And Divine: The Story Of The Wild Ones. That album debuted at #7 on the Billboard Top 200, reached the #1 spot on the iTunes Top Album Chartthe band’s best debut to date. BVB has garnered numerous accolades winning awards from Revolver, Alternative Press and Kerrang, and performed at the 2012 Revolver Golden Gods Awards. The band is currently on tour worldwide in support of the new album, and adding new fans to their infamous BVB Army daily.
