Okay so in case you’ve been living under a rock, Andy Biersack’s autobiography, ‘They Don’t Need To Understand: Stories Of Hope, Fear, Family, Life And Never Giving In’ back in December.
It has gone on to top Amazon’s Best Sellers in Rock Music and finds itself at No.02 in Rock Band Biographies and No.20 in Actor & Entertainer Biographies on Amazon as well.
But in case this doesn’t appeal to you just wait… there’s an audiobook version now, being read by Andy himself!
Via the following link, you can hear a sample of the first half an hour of the book.
Andy had the following to say about the success of the book:
“I am so thankful for the incredible reception the book has had and it means the world to me to know that my story has resonated with so many people all over the world. This whole experience has been a dream come true.”
The band are teasing a brand new concept record with their latest single, ‘Scarlet Cross’.
This cut is off their upcoming, ‘The Phantom Tomorrow’ record which is due sometime in 2021. The story is that of antihero ‘The Blackbird’ and a group of societal outcasts known as ‘The Phantom Tomorrow’.
They explain: “We are incredibly excited to share not only this new song ‘Scarlet Cross’, but also our vision for the world of ‘The Phantom Tomorrow’ and its characters. We are in the final stages of writing for this record and have begun work on our forthcoming The Phantom Tomorrow graphic novel. We intend to continue to share elements of the story in the coming months and can’t wait for everyone to see what we have been working on!”
Better yet, the video for ‘Scarlet Cross’ was directed by the longtime collaborator Patrick Fogarty which was based on a concept written by frontman Andy Biersack.
After the reveal of the book in 2017, Andy Biersack has announced the details of his debut release ”They Don’t Need To Understand: Stories of Hope, Fear, Family, Life, and Never Giving In’.
Set to be released on December 8th 2020, the book details Biersack’s life from his childhood to touring around the world with his band, Black Veil Brides and as a solo artist.
The synopsis can be read below.
“Before he was the charismatic singer of Black Veil Brides and an accomplished solo artist under the Andy Black moniker, he was Andrew Dennis Biersack, an imaginative and creative kid in Cincinnati, Ohio, struggling with anxiety, fear, loneliness, and the impossible task of fitting in. With his trademark charm, clever wit, and insightful analysis, Biersack tells the story of his childhood and adolescence. The discovery of the artistic passions that would shape his life, and his decision to move to Hollywood after his 18th birthday to make his dreams come true, even when it meant living in his car to make it all a reality. It’s the origin story of one of modern rock’s most exciting young superheroes, from building miniature concerts with KISS action figures in his bedroom to making the RIAA gold-certified single “In the End” and connecting with passionate fans worldwide.”

The only Pre-Order I have been able to find is from Amazon for the UK. I’ll keep the post updated in case there’s anything else.
Andy Biersack has revealed the news that he has had to move fans due to harassment from fans.
This is the musician’s full statement.
i appreciate the dedication so many have given to me and my career over the years however i must insist that finding information about, sharing the address & showing up at my home is inappropriate. We will be moving and i hope that going forward personal privacy will be respected
“I appreciate the dedication so many have given to me and my career over the years however I must insist that finding information about, sharing the address & showing up at my home is inappropriate. We will be moving and I hope that going forward personal privacy will be respected.
It’s not my intention to blow this out of proportion, I do not think there is a safety issue. I am just a rock singer, I want to be clear I do not think I am too special for human interaction, but privacy at home is important to all of us regardless of what we do for a living.
For purposes of clarity I would like to say one last thing on the subject. We have been routinely receiving fan gifts recently and while it was greatly appreciated we were apprehensive regarding how exactly our home address had been made public. Today it culminated in an odd exchange in my front yard with 3 women, one of whom appeared to be very ill. I offered to help in any way I could and to call an ambulance but was told ‘no’ everytime I offered to assist in that way.
While this interaction occured I noticed that one of the women was taking video and photos with her cell phone while the others insisted they were ‘nervous’ and their story changed many times as to how exactly they stumbled upon my home. They said they needed my phone number and asked many times what my name was but insisted they were just tourists visiting LA from a different country. We have since found the Depop profile for one of them and she is in fact seemingly a big fan of myself, my wife and my band.
When the woman who was sick said she she was now all better and okay I tried to walk in a different direction away from my home but they followed in a vehicle until I finally entered my house. This compounded with other recent similar incidents has made it clear that we no longer have any privacy at this location. I do not fear these people at all but it is wildly inappropriate to invade someone else’s personal space.
I am not a celebrity and I am not able to live in a heavily secured or protected fortress. All I am asking for is the same respect that anyone else is worthy of and that is the basic right to privacy.
