Citing ‘artistic differences’, the Black Veil Bride’s Twitter feed alarmed fans nationwide after a Tweet revealing Biersack, who also goes by Andy Sixx, was taking time away from the band due to ‘needing to branch out to explore [his] own musical interests as [he] matures as an artist.’
A source close to the band announced that tomorrow, “Baby, Baby” crooner Justin Bieber will be announced as the new lead singer of the band. As seen above, the band already has its cover prepared for Rolling Stone magazine. The source revealed that while the band plans to produce a similar style of music, managers felt Justin Bieber’s presence with the act could provide ‘a new age that bridges several unique musical genres, giving the Black Veil Brides more mainstream exposure’.
Reactions from fans on Twitter and Facebook have been mixed, with some fans fearing the loss of Andy Biersack will spell the demise of the band. Other devoted fans look forward to the change and bridging of musical genres.
