when the wounds aren’t stitched

when the remains aren’t beautiful

when it’s only some of your hate

when heaven is a bitch and doesn’t call

when love is finally fair

when god don’t bless you

when old people drink whiskey

when you just ain’t bulletproof

when it’s not done for you

when it’s not the fucking end

when your damn heart isn’t on fire

that moment when they don’t die for you

I would like to take this opportunity to share with you guys something that I have been working on and that I am very excited about releasing! I have always been interested in a broad spectrum of music and though the music that BVB makes is certainly my favorite stylistically, I am also heavily influenced by the dark melodic synth laden styles of bands from the 80’s such as Sisters of Mercy, Depeche Mode, Lords of the New Church etc. Over the last year or so I decided in my down town that it might be fun to take a stab at writing some material that is more in the “dark wave” vein simply for fun and as a hobby. I have now written almost a complete albums worth of material…some on my own and some in collaboration with friends and other artists but all of which I am very proud of and excited about. This project is not a band, BVB is my life and biggest passion and there is no reason to fear that I will lose sight of that. #bvb4 is coming along better than anything we’ve ever done and it is my number 1 priority. Please consider this new project to be a fun and artistic way for me to try something that musically I wouldn’t want to force into BVB etc. I am calling this project #ANDYBLACK as to me it represents an alter ego and I felt that it was important to differentiate this as a side project while still maintaining a connection to BVB by using the “BLACK” moniker. As far as my plans for the project we will be releasing a music video soon and may release more online over a long period but again BVB is my main focus, this is just something I had a lot of fun doing and I hope you will enjoy it too!
