"You are in the band Black Veil Brides, you dress up, wear makeup and have some of the most loyal fans, my question is, Do you feel that having such loyal fans, upset the fact that many people hate your band even before they listen to it?
Sure it does. I always think it’s funny when someone tries to inform me that my band sucks when there’s millions of our fans out there who will vehemently invalidate their statement. I think for many people they are put off by our sudden rise of success because it scares them. Like that it’s due to some sort of black magic or something, that it just couldn’t possibly be because our music is actually good or that we really are a great band. So they write us off before they even actually listen to our music, and in their minds it makes them more ‘cool’ to hate us. Besides, all hate comes from ignorance. The truth is, when you have all the right ingredients for a great band, or have a dream and the balls to actually take it all the way, there’s no limit for how far you will succeed. There’s magic, yes, but not black magic."
