Singer talks impact of US election

Black Veil Brides frontman Andy Biersack has claimed that Donald Trump will inspire “great art”.

Interviewed by Kerrang!, the rock singer expressed his concern and fear for current American politics.

“All of us are influenced by the turmoil and I really hope that ultimately, a lot of great art does come out of it,” Biersack (who goes by the solo name Andy Black) said. He also revealed there is a song based on the US elections on his upcoming record.

“I get a tremendous amount of anxiety from the whole situation,” he added. “I hope and pray that [the election] goes the right way”.

Biersack also revealed he has been working on Andy Black ideas and, alongside his Black Veil Brides band members, a fifth album is in the works.

It’s “the longest we’ve ever spent on an album”, Biersack says, with work on it starting in April. The band has previously released an album a year for the past four years.

“How do we make a record that’s true to the vibe of the band, but still maintain the pace of moving forward and doing something fresh?” he said.

Biersack released debut solo album ‘The Shadow Side’ in May.
