FOB + BVB! Andy Biersack In The Studio With Patrick Stump
Having wrapped up a summer on Warped Tour, performing alongside his beloved girlfriend Juliet Simms, BVB’s Andy Biersack is now hard at work recording his debut solo album – under the name Andy Black – with 5SOS, Sleeping with Sirens and All Time Low producer John Feldmann, but by the looks of Andy’s Instagram, he’s also been getting a little help from FOB frontman Patrick Stump.
Andy posted a snap of himself with Patrick, ‘Feldy’ and The Used’s guitarist Quinn Allman in the studio, saying “What a pleasure it has been today to work and talk music, life & experiences with the incredibly talented and kind @patrickstump”.
Although we don’t yet know whether Patrick has contributed his mad producing skills (he’s previously worked on records with Gym Class Heroes, Cobra Starship and none other than Kylie Jenner’s rapper BF, Tyga) or his distinctive Fall Out Boy vocal warbles to the Andy Black album, whenever Stump is on board, things bode well.
Last year Andy revealed that writing his solo stuff has changed how he creates songs for Black Veil Brides, too. “Doing these Andy Black songs led to me changing my writing style a little bit for Black Veil. Now with the upcoming Black Veil Brides album I am being a little bit more honest and direct with my lyrical content probably as a result of having written this record,” he said in an interview with Team Rock.
Giving the BVBArmy even more excitement to add to this already excellent news, Andy recently confirmed that work is also underway on the new Black Veil Brides album.
Speaking on the red carpet at the APMAs in July, he said: “The intention is to finish both [the Black Veil Brides and Andy Black] records concurrently. I have almost all the material worked on for Andy Black. We're going to get in, start working with John Feldmann and do a Black Veil record, then I'm going to try to get an Andy Black record done."
If Andy has stuck to his original plan, this photo would mean that the new BVB record is already in the can, but the band have been hinting that they aren’t starting work on the album until this winter!
Keeping the BVBArmy on their toes, the only people who know what’s going on with the new Black Veil record is Black Veil themselves, but now, thanks to this Insta post, at least we know that it won’t be too long before we get to hear new music from Andy Biersack...
