My favorite thing about Black Veil Brides is how well they cover the stage, as any good rock band should. Bassist Ashley Purdyeven keeps a microphone strapped to him, rather than moving towards one to provide Andy with backing vocals. Meanwhile, guitaristsJinxx and Jake Pitts often will go back to back with one another, be it during a solo or just during a dominating riff.

“I think some people look at this [music] like it’s a race,” he says. ”And once you get to play in front of two thousand people and you’re done with the race, you just check out. For me, this is a life, my whole life. I would rather continuously do the things I’ve always wanted to do than drop off because now I have enough money to buy a car or something. I have no other skills. I dropped out of high school- this is the only thing that I’ve ever known how to do. I’ve made the joke many times that my only other career choice was to be a superhero so that’s how far back I stopped caring about anything else- I just wanted to do this. It’s crazy to me that people would not have that level of passion to connect with their audience forever.”

Arcade Sushi asked some musicians which video game character they would like to be. Andy said,
"Ken Griffey JR, from Major League Baseball featuring Ken Griffey JR because he was always so positive, and he taught me to have fun! Also, every batter looked like they had to sh*t."
