The Andy Show: Our Thank You’s, Shout Outs, and Personal Notes from the TAS Army. Plus my scratched TAS review.

Hi. This is our long awaited virtual birthday showiversary birthday card to the creators of The Andy Show; Andy( Follow Andy IG here /Twitter here),Pat(Follow Pat’s IG here/Twitter here),and Joe(Follow Joe’s IG here/Twitter here).

It is belated of course because I believe in quantity and quality. I try very hard to get as much lovely submissions as I could. This year I decided to scale back and let the fans have a go. Let them use my blog for and see do as they fit. I believe in all of them. Some can amass into very creative writers, some can do something in a means of writing fiction or non-fiction, etc. So keep dreaming on. Keep doing you. I believe in you. No matter how much it is of a struggle to find a way to get your art out there. You can accomplish anything. Never give in, never back down. Be well and be strong.

I want to make a big belated birthday wish in place for those who were very shy to come forward to your patrons on Patreon and the rest who support your YouTube and Podcast means. I believe we all love, cherish, support, and celebrate TAS in each of our homes. It’s such a cool thing to be able to have TAS available. Thank you Pat, Andy, and Joe for all you do. For all the shy voices. I, Mariah, send you all my love and best. Here’s to many more showiversaries and birthdays for TAS. More awesome content. If you are reading this. You are shy. I understand. I got you. You are awesome the just the way you are.

All in all, I am pretty happy with the two years that the Andy Show has been blessed in my life and in to everyone else’s homes. To me it’s a release of stress of my daily bullshit. You see. My life is hell to live in really. Living with daily raw chronic pain and 16 chronic diseases. Two of which are rare in measure. But I get to find comfort, solace, joy, carefree, and stress free atmosphere when I listen or watch The Andy Show. The content is very much unscripted and very true to self. Even if it were scripted. It would be true to themselves.

I am so elated when I come to social media and read from other patrons and Andy Show subscribers who also deal with chronic diseases,etc that they as well adore trio of stooges. Our stooges. To see the internet make memes, art, etc out of the Andy Show is pretty cool. It makes me happy to know weird will still prevail. I want to let those people know to keep being weird and doing their art.

The charisma and aptitude Andy, Joe, and Pat give to the Andy Show audience is one of kind. Even during the Blasko(Go Follow the cat bass boss here) days, you all are amazing and bunch of grade A class acts. This resonates on how well they were brought up. I would rate the Andy Show as a breath of fresh air while you are on the ground trying to get fresh air from laughing so hard at their content. It speaks well off of the content you guys created in “The Average Joe” days. Even though this totally different and unrelated content to “Average Joe”(YouTube for Average Joe or basically just Subscribe to the awesome Joe Flanders here) . I am so happy with everything. Even the new podcast premier of new features for The Andy Show, keeping things fresh and new.

Their content is simply one of a kind. Nothing ripped off and nothing stolen(Greatly disappointed that I had to state that, I read from hater internet from time to time boy they are wronged 😂) . Just three stooges plus random other stooges not knowing what is going on that week. Just off the cuff and in the moment. I sure appreciate the vernacular and composure you three post each week.

What struck the heart of potato spuds with me about the show is the caring nature to causes like suicide prevention(here/Example of their love) and rescuing Potate 1 (here/Getting Adopted , don’t shop.) and 2(here/here).

Never forget these moments( them using and actually buying my Amazon suggestion for the show 🤣/My Amazon suggestion getting too much fun in the Andy Show HQ/My Amazon suggestion getting a football helmet and placed on the awards case/Pippy Wild still making my day for Tasopoly using my entry for “Add Andy to Things” contest,YouTube video of the Official Tasopoly of Pippy Wilds creation/Episode were my edit was featured.)

As I concluded this article. Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to read this. You as the reader means a lot to me. Go check Andy Biersacks, Joe Flanders, and Pat Fogarty’s, The Andy Show. Subscribe and become a #PledgedAsFuckPatron(Cherry hashtag credit) / #HailPatrons today. Go reward yourself with a potato. Take care the best you can. Be well and be strong. Never give in, never back down.

Happy Belated Birthday TAS

Never Give In and Never Back Down, Rising my blog from the hiatus grave,etc Explained.

“Never give in,Never back down” is my new permanent moto to life. 2016 has been one of the toughest years of my life in terms of death, my own health, and family woes. Plus my anxiety, depression, and train of thought for professional journalling is not good for the sake of who I want and what I want this blog to atone to become. 

I am not going to lie and say I had plans early on in 2016 to have this blog bumping and partying but my mental health was waging a war inside me. I planned to only make this a review blog. Review CD’s. Which in turn I will. I decided to scratch reviewing Asking Alexandria’s “The Black” on terms of the sudden recent events of Danny rejoining Asking for good. The only review I am going to work on is Andy Black’s “The Shadow Side”. I may be late to the party in terms of reviews but the turtle always nabs the big one. I have found out being disabled has its large perks to life. Taking things slow is one.

Another reason why I wasn’t so big into blogging, writing, etc is because some of these media publication companies feel entitled to something superior(not the ones I follow). Its not like that. Its about the beauty of why you do it in the first place. The reward is awesome of getting noticed by media outlets and bands. But don’t let it tarnish your craft and who you are. I have seen people change cause of it. I couldn’t give two shits if on twitter or anywhere on a social media I got noticed or anything(but I don’t take it for grant at all). Treat people like humans. Such as the bands you tweet or there members. Plus on any other form of social media.

I also stopped blogging cause I entered a huge depression. I haven’t opened up till now. These past two years I haven’t been able to release any anger or frustration at all at any concert cause I have been house bound due to my health. I have had multiple surgeries since my last concert which was 11/8/14. Was when I saw Black Veil Brides. I have to get another big operation soon involving my right knee. They are going to do the same thing with the left knee I had operated on last April. With everything going on medically with me. My migraines and other problems have been hell. I put on a fake facade for everyone to think I am okay but I am hurting and trying to shut out the world on my feelings. Some days I just didn’t want to get out of bed.I don’t even get out of my own house for a weeks time. But I have been getting out more due to self help. Cause I have gone to therapy in the past but it has failed me. So I just deal with it. 

It all got progressively worse when I found out over the internet which is the newest version of telling people my grandpa passed away. I come from a old school background. You either call or write a letter to let distant family or friends know about that. Not over the internet. Then I loose my other grandpa to terminal cancer in November. Plus some major drama came out of that. Plus I almost lost both of my parents in a head on collision in August due to a hangover driver and his negligence. My dad lost his job in October cause the company he was working for the mill permanently shutdown due to things I can’t say.

The year has totally been a drag. The only good that came out of it was the love that my family at home gave and my second families I am in. I couldn’t appreciate the love, support, prayers, etc in my time in need. You all truly mean a lot. It doesn’t go unappreciated. Am truly grateful and thankful. 

I often think I don’t deserve help. That I feel like I am looser. Even though I can be the toughest and biggest inspiration to people. I often wondering if people can REALLY help me. But I am still here. I am preserving and kicking ass despite my limited life skill/therapy tools I have. 

Its hard to tell people things I have gone through until recently. I have only just realized that telling my story can only help others. I don’t have an ego, superior complex, entitlement, etc. 

I am just, ME. I am human. You’re human. Everyone is human. We got thoughts, feelings, dreams, aspirations, etc. I am proud of myself for making it thus far. 

So I stepped away, more than a years time to fix my mental state of mind that I am still working on. My physical health, which is a massive load of chores to do. Among other things I had to deal with outside of the blog. I did this for myself and for my loyal readers that I don’t take for grant. I wanted to come back with full on train of focus of why I put this blog out there to begin with. 11/16/16 I felt like I started that journey but didn’t have the right words till now to explain why. 

I got my first tattoo and probably my last tattoo for a long time on left shoulder. Its comprised of my dream tattoo/personal BVB tattoo. But its my life lesson, reminder to be strong, reminder to never hate/ to love, reminder to never to take life for grant,etc.

The break down of the reasoning of the support ribbon. I suffer 15 medical conditions one of them rare. 

Purple and Pink: Chronic Migraine, Fibromyalgia to the Brain, and my rare condition, Spontaneous Intracranial Hypotension( I leak spinal fluid out my left nostril from a CSF leak due to migraines)

Purple: Athromyalgia and Fibromyalgia

White: Irritable Bowel Syndrome with Diarrhea and Constipation

Yellow: Endometerosis correlation with Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome

Purple/Yellow: I am a suicide and sexual assault survivor. I attempted five times with each time failed. One coorealating with my sexual assault. I am proud to be living still amount the bad shit that has happened to me. My last attempt was dealt with my health conditions and a cancer scare, I didn’t want to be in chronic pain anymore. BVB helped me in my darkest hour. I would have OD on prescription sleeping aids. But I forced myself to throw up. 1/27/13 and beyond is a day I will never forget. I saved my own life but BVB this piece of 🍰 you do own in helping me through something shitty. Plus I was sexually molested by a ex trusted guy on college viewing trip. Help saw what was happening. Never said anything. Help never came. I was molested for an hour and some odd minutes. In front of peers. I will NEVER forget.

Unmentioned diseases and conditions: Gastropresis, Cealic disease, gluten intolerance, gastro-esophogeal reflux disease, depression, anxiety, Attention Deficit Disorder, and hand tremors due to my hands being burned to the bone when I was a 13 months old fucking up my whole motor system for life due to a neglectful daycare provider. 

The BVB Mourning Star Rosary: Why is it tattooed on me?  Well for starters I love old fashioned jewlery and I being a old fashioned soul chose the mourning star drawn by Richard Villa at Exhibit A Art Gallery. I am in love with his artwork. The quality of his prints, art, etc he does for BVB is totally insane. So I am incredibly honored to hone one of his first pieces of artwork he did for Black Veil Brides on my skin. I am also a non devout Catholic. I was baptized as a baby into catholism but I never really got into the religion but respected the art, theatrics, etc of the religion and how nunery( A BVB 😂) was processisioned. That’s another reason why I got tattooed on me due to my own personal religious reasons and my respect for the beauty of the religion. I am purely secular to anyone’s beliefs and feelings. Even when it comes to sexual orientation, etc. 

“Never give in, Never back down”: the deep meaning as to why I got this tattooed on me. The full meaning or lyrics ” Never give in, Never back down ( When your life feels lost/Fight against all odds)” is very personal to me. Between fighting the deep depression, anxiety, anger of several things in real life, my health taking a dip, my two grandpas dying this year, etc I had this song as my backbone to hold me up when I am down in the pits of hell. I am struggling to keep my head above the chin level. But I am here. I am here to say you can get through your darkest shit no matter what. Giving in is a easy thing to do but also “Getting up and kicking ass” is another. I rather kick some ass positively. I am disabled, I wake up in pain and go to sleep in pain. This song changed my life forever along with “In The End”, “Devils Choir”,and “Heart of Fire”. BVB has several inspirational and moving songs. But those five are the big ones that changed my life forever. I am indebted to Andy, CC, Jinxx, Jake, and Ashley with there hours and hours of hard work they put in for the BVB army to hear new music,etc. No matter what our lives amount to. Its what you make it. Make it a kickass one. I hope your “Legacy” is bright and potato-ey. Remember “Never give in, Never back down”

Tattoo by Shannon Blinn of Skin Deep tattoo design of Lewiston, Idaho.

Things I am most looking forward to is BVB5 and there tour. Hopefully I am not to much of a cripple when they come to my region. I am in need of a concert fix. I wish to see Andy Black in Spokane in March but the damn doctor keeps fiddle farting around with my surgery date. So sadly I can’t attend due to that reasoning. I am stoked to see American Satan(film Andys going to be in if you are living under a rock all this time)though next year. So many exciting things to look forward to.

All in all, I have had a pretty tough and shitty year but its made me sit and reevaluate a lot of things. I hope to bring back this blog back in 2017. I am sorry you all had to sit in silence and read past articles. I am going to go back and re-edit those. Right now I am just going to get this blog sources up and ready for 2017. I am in the right frame of mind to write again. I am proud of myself to bring myself out of the ashes and rise up out of the ashes again. Hope your holiday season goes swell. Tell your loved ones you love them. Be safe out there. Don’t drive hungover or drunk. Call a Uber or a taxi. Do chores for your parents. Thank you for reading my update on what’s going on. It means a lot. You as the reader means the world to me. So take care. Best of wishes. Je T’Aime.

Our Crown of Thorns: A huge Appreciation/Thank You to Black Veil Brides via The BVB army

This is a comprised huge article to the band Black Veil Brides. This is an appreciation and thank you article from several of the BVB army members from all around the world. I asked via Black Veil Brides official Facebook group, my twitter(@PotatoBVBQueen), and my tumblr for people to send me a short paragraph of what, how, and why Black Veil Brides means to you with some basic rules and criteria which people DID follow which made me extremely happy and I felt appreciated that people followed my instructions. People whom submitted to me I gave them the writers mic to have their chance to get out what they want to tell Andy, CC, Jake, Jinxx, and Ashley what they mean to that person whom submitted to my big appreciation/thank you article project. Everyone whom submitted their submissions made it. I left their writing as raw as best as I could to what they wrote from their heart. I only edited to a point. Never read anything. Everything that is submitted is prospected and credited to the person whom wrote and properly credited with their social media usernames or their real name which I asked permission to use from the BVB army whom submitted to me. NO submission was turned away. Cause I believe in “O’hana” The BVB army is a family to me so no one gets left behind. Anyways, thank you for taking the time to read this. It means a lot. All my best to you. 

Love, Mariah Hanna aka The Tater Queen 


I want to start this article in explaining why I wanted to do this and publish this on Black Veil Brides International Day which is on June 17th. It is the day which “Knives and Pens” music video was released which launched BVB’s career to were they stand today as a successful rock band. Bands who come out to have the goal to help people through their music is something very special cause these bands are often rare occasional to come by to the bands who sing about fucking girls, getting drunk/stoned, etc.

Knives and Pens music video by Black Veil Brides. Directed by Patrick Fogarty. on June 17th, 2009. This is the video that birthed BVB’s career to where BVB is now today with awards, accolades, big tours, etc.

(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gFDCHdKbKBY)

Bands that write about life experiences and inspirational through song and helps thousands to millions of people around the world. Black Veil Brides is one of them. Their lyrics and message is something people need to take the time of day to process and feel the music and lyrics. It is amazing to see a band like BVB inspire a league of members in the BVB army to create their own bands, become artists through art or music, become writers like ME among others, become bakers, a potato, etc. People are picking up guitars, drums, basses, pencils, pens, a computer, a paint brush, whisk, spoon, etc. Anything positive BVB does inspirational through song and through public relations through interviews and magazines appearances in inspiring these people to better their lives for good. I am one of those cases. I am not alone though. As you will read the testimonies from the BVB armies messages YOU will find out just how much BVB means to me, us, in the BVB army.

My story of what, how, and why Black Veil Brides means to me is that they were their during a really difficult time in my life. I branched out in a cry for help in guidance cause I was in the process of ending my own life. I gave their music a legit second chance. With beauty and magic they won me over and my demons from that day forward till now have ceased. BVB has made me into a whole new person. A better me than before. I am not the only one though they have helped so preciously and selflessly with their inner battles and demons. It’s great to be among peers that I have common place things with in the BVB army being my medical issues and potato fetish(he he muahaha 😀 ). So I do believe in fate and the impossible happening.

  •                 The back story to my above how BVB came into my life story: I woke up one morning in November of 2009 with my whole life turned upside down with a massive migraine. Needless to say 10 neurologist’s, a fuck load of medical bills, medications been put on and taken off, 3 major test surgeries for this, secondary issues(my severe stomach and other things pain), CT and MRI scans, etc and five years down the road I still have the same headache that NEVER went away that came so freshly to me in wee morning of November of 2009. Through these five years I have battled depression and suicidal thoughts. I only got suicidal when the pain was so intense I was bed ridden for nearly three months. I am known as a medical miracle. Even though each day is struggle to get by I have driven to want to live and see shit through. Even though I have made peace with all my physical bullies in forgiving, etc this bully is silent and deadly. I hope someday it leaves me for good. Have three headache/migraine conditions tears a person down but also inspires that person. I have 14 medical conditions. I am determined to kill each of them as I live a happy life to an extent on Earth. So how does BVB play into this. January 27th, 2013 was the day I planned on ending my life for good. I being(a hater) of their band which I won’t properly mention cause I no longer associate myself with the tag anymore. I have been dealing with cancer scares since my immune system will forever be at an all time low(nope not the band, lol). I am prone to get sick quicker than the average person with a more strong immune system. Being chronically ill tends to have its cons more than pros. My depression and mood was not well. Was in a rough patch with my medical issues. Then I went with the plan to end my own life cause nothing and no one was curing my severe pain. I was at the end of my rope. I fell deeply in a hole. I took a crap load of my sleeping med’s that night. Was in the middle of writing my suicide note and readers digest will. I decide to listen to music to see if it would help(the guardian angel move I made for myself). I was listen to my fave bands they weren’t doing shit for me. So I the (hater) at the time accidentally clicked on “In The End” (SO FUCKING PROUD OF MYSELF FOR DOING SO, I HUG MYSELF EVERY TIME I THINK OF WHAT MY PAST ME WOULD HAVE CALLED A MAJOR FUCK UP :D). Clicked on the music video was mad at self then shut the hell up and let the music do the talking. By the end of the music video I fell in love instantly. Second times a charm. I of course got the sleeping med’s out of my system and vowed to be a huge BVB fan saving my own life. This ties into a special poll question I asked the BVB army. I have no idea or not. But there is NO evidence out their whatsoever but I am known as the first person to apologize to BVB face to face. I did that via meet and greet on November 8th,2014 took me almost two years to plan out. I knew in my heart that it was the right thing to do. I try not to bring this up at ALL but doing it changed my life completely. I am not a saint and not an ego maniac wanting attention. I mention what I did to inspire like people whom are alike and want to do what I did in their OWN big moment that I will cheer them on. I am just bringing awareness of this to people whom converted to BVB fandom the way I did cause it is possible and I know their are people out their like me whom need the inspiration to go forth and do it. All bands deserve a respectful apology of someone doing wrong to their band. It RARELY happens. I hope someday or sometime I read things from other people doing this unique deed it doesn’t have to be BVB or it can BVB but change, hope, and selfless pay it forward random acts of kindness happen everyday and I hope it does cause people deserve greatness.So in that here are messages of positive remarks from the BVB army regarding my apology to BVB
    • I think it is truly the greatest thing I have ever seen in my life and I hope that you’ve inspired others to do such kind acts.  -@LeoJadi24
    • I think it showed the measure of your character. To admit to yourself you’re wrong is a huge achievement in itself, but to admit it to the object of your hate….wow that’s an immense achievement. What you did at that M&G took balls, real honest to potatoe-ness BALLS! If there were more people like you in the World Like you Hun, it would be a nicer place! I can’t speak for BVB or you or anyone, but to me, you are an inspiration, a beautiful soul and happy to say I know you. Well done you. -@Bobbysian
    • All of the above. And I’ll add it’s really remarkable that you left your hater past behind but still faced it, admitting it to the objects of said hate. And really, what you did is amazing and I’m sure they were so happy to hear it – @zillyhoo.cityofcans
    • As for your formal apology, Mariah, I thought it was really awesome. I am a firm believer in the idea that people are never actually sorry unless they act like it, and it is clear that you were. It was really brave of you to do that, so kudos to you. -Rin Johnson (@ErinJohnson27)

I want to make a side note big huge thank you and appreciation to all of BVB’s press crew, management, stage crew(whom I narrate when I watch BVB live YouTube videos and I see them come on stage running around fixing things and I give them the classic “Andy not again!” quote, lol), tour security(turkamayne and his minions), all their supportive parents and family/friends, and whom ever works for them press wise, stage, etc many people don’t realize how much of team effort it is to put out records, merchandise, special merch things, press, go out on tours, and make a stage with pyro or non-pyro with laws in states or countries in venues about that. It takes a whole lot of people to make a beautiful stage and concert happen. Lots of people to create a record,CD, album what have you. BVB wouldn’t be here without US the fans and BVB could have NEVER had the things BVB has now today with connections and proper budget. This goes with any given band. This would have NEVER happened if WE would have NEVER supported them. With the vast support BVB gets I can only see them getting stronger day by day. Each record is growth album for them but it takes an army of people to make what you have in your hands via CD, merch, etc happen. I am thankful that even their parents deal with fan mail and fan relations. I have NEVER come across a band(s) that has had parents do that for their son(daughter). It was a treat to send Chris and Amy Biersack(Thank you so much for supporting my writing it means the world to me. Never take it for grant. I send my warm wishes and thanks to the both of you) letters to them, BVB, and Andy. The reply back I have from Chris and Amy is framed in a picture frame with all my BVB meet and greet I was blessed with and their reply in a special BVB memorabilia picture frame. It is so neat to me that they do that for their son, Andy. Even Mark Pitts(Thank you so much for supporting my writing YOU earn a special thank you and warm wishes as well) does the same thing for Jake. I know Ashley handles his own. So neat and cool. Never heard any other bands parents doing that for their kids in the band. Shows the mentality, values, etc the band members of the band was raised on. Major props and I greatly appreciate and am thankful for it.

In a sad note. Chris Holley a guitar tech for BVB’s camp passed away(June 15th,2015). I want this article to become a tribute to his life. Celebrate what he helped create and help via guitars to make them sound spectacular and stage ready. So this is a special thank you and appreciate in the celebration of life to Chris Holley. In this I send my utter thoughts, prayers, wishes, and support to his family, friends, and colleagues whom knew him. All I can do is send my best and unconditional love to those whom are affected loosing a loved one is not easy at all. A little piece of this article is for you Chris in memory of your legacy. YOU will forever be apart of the BVB army and as I told my grandpa on his deathbed back in August/September(he passed away on September 4th,2014 Chris will be in great hands in heaven with my hilarious and loving grandpa among other fallen rock legends, hero’s, and people whom lost their lives over the years). I told him Andy Biersack’s famous quote and that is “I believe in you”. RIP you will NEVER be forgotten. Rock In Peace. ^CH^

 

BVB is a rare one of a kind band to me. They are so full of life and on full cylinders to do more records or tour. So in this they made a song “Crown of Thorns” to us the BVB army. So in return I have been working for weeks comprising this article that I put in the hands of the BVB army. I want THEM to have the chance to have a voice through my writers mic. So in this. THIS is OUR “Crown of Thorns” our appreciation and thank you’s to Andy Biersack, Jinxx, Jake Pitts, Ashley Purdy, and CC(Christian Coma)(Although I appreciate these guys everyday. Forever thankful, grateful, and will NEVER take all five of them for grant. What they do I appreciate everyday and I know others do too). I am MORE than thrilled to let these beautiful people of the BVB army voice their love and admiration to Black Veil Brides cause as I stated before. I am not the only one they have helped so much through their powerful lyrics and messages through interviews or meeting in person. So I will shut up and give these lovely people the writers mic like what Andy did at those intimate London shows at “The Garage” giving the mic to the crowd to speak. lol. Enjoy reading and thank YOU for taking the time to read these raw and from the heart messages to BVB. Which I NEVER read. I only edited them to a point. I kept them the way they were but as raw from the writer as I could. Anyways, get your read on and get yourself a healthy plate of taters or tissues to enjoy reading these.

They are my favorite band. I have seen(Black Veil Brides) live. I even have a (BVB) tattoo.

Love you all

Black Veil Brides such an inspiration to me they help me stand up to my bullies and help me out of my darkest times. Every time I listen to their music when I’m depressed or upset it makes me forget about what happened during the day and live like there’s no tomorrow. They are my biggest heroes and I appreciate them for saving me.

Sincerely BVB army member,

-Karla Edwards

May 10th 2010 was the date that changed me forever. It made me listen to and fall in love with 5 talented, wonderful, positive men named Jake, CC, Jinxx, Ashley and Andy who are also known as Black Veil Brides. I would like to thank them for being in my life and I hope they never leave. Thank you guys for making such amazing music for the millions of fans you call the BVB Army or The Legion and thank you for being your plain and simple amazing selves.

-Courtney Scherger

BVB came to me in 2011 when I went to see VersaEmerge. I have to admit, I’m over 40 and not the A typical BVB Army member but I loved it. I immediately went and downloaded their music and found more to them than just great entertainers and amazing musicians. Their words have helped me even though my so called youth is no longer on my face, it’s still in my heart and soul. I have since lost some friends because of my life changes and found others both through music and social media. Some people in my life think I should be married with kids and a house, their idea of a normal life. I tried marriage, failed and found a blessing that we didn’t have kids, to be tied to a man I no longer love. I am glad that BVB came to me to say it’s okay if I’m not like everyone else. That though I failed in a marriage, it’s okay because I have a life I love and no restrictions to who I am or what I’m doing in my life.

-@peopleeater3

Thank you for giving me my daughter back. Andy, back in 2010 you spent about an hour talking with her. You, a 19 year old kid at the time, changed, a then 15 year old kid, life. A young man very wise beyond his years. You know that you, CC, Jinxx, Jake and “The Boy” will always have a special place in my heart!

Love, “Mom”

-Barbara TheConcert Mom

Black Veil Brides you guys have done so much for me. You picked me up when I was low and you convinced me to keep going. You told me over and over to never give in and never back down. Even now when I have problems you’re there for me. I have never met you in person but I know you guys would be amazing. I was at a very low point my best friend committed suicide and I was seriously considering it. But my best friend left me with her C.D.s all of them were yours. She introduced to me to your music and both you and her helped me to survive. I speak for everyone when I say We love you and don’t ever stop what you’re doing.

– Lee Risotto

BVB you guys showed up in my life in a darker moment and thanks to your music I’m overcome this darkest moment of my life. I’d love to meet you personally and tell how you guys changed my life even though you guys are already tired of hearing of other fans. and I hope that someday you guys come to my country (Portugal) because I’d love to see you live. I love you guys.

-Ana Lage

Black Veil Brides you guys have made me feel more confident in myself, to not care what other people think or say to me. Your music has helped me so much. your inspirational to me and many others, just like you guys have found you passion in life. So have I fashion/costume design hoping to make a career out of it. I seen you guys live 12th of October last year, that Manchester show was amazing, it was my first BVB show, I loved it and I hope i get to see you guys live again and possibly meet you and tell you how much your music has helped and inspired me.

-Kate (@musicandfashion_girl195&@BlackVeilScript )

Black Veil Brides, you guys mean the world to me and I can’t thank you guys enough. I have been a fan since the very beginning and I have loved all of you and your work. You guys helped me gain the courage to make myself happy, to give me confidence and to help me through the complications of being a young trans boy. Not to mention that you have brought back my hopes of one day being a bassist in a band like I have dreamed of being as a little kid. I love you guys so much and I can’t wait to see what you guys do in the future.

Love, BVB Army forever! ~ Shaun -(westitchourwoundstogether.tumblr.com)

I first heard Black veil Brides on my 13th birthday July 7th 2013, the song was knives and pens. I instantly fell in love with the music and lyrics, being bullied through my school career, I could relate. Eventually, I listened to all your albums and felt more confident than ever. My Mom told me that when I walked into school, your music blasting out of my ear buds, I held myself with confidence. I always thought that I would never get to meet you guys, but I had saved the money up for a VIP ticket for November 12th 2014. It was my first BVB concert and I got to meet you, definitely the best day of my life. I had drawn a picture of a panda for Andy and I was so shaky and nervous, Ashley had waved to my Mom who had been recording me which was pretty funny looking back. I really appreciate everything you all have done.

Thank you,

-Isabella Ripperger (@izzyripperger)

I always stood for ‘be your own person’, don’t let anyone tell you what to wear, think, listen or like. BVB represents that in optima forma, and their music simply rocks! They are also a great role model to my 14 year old daughter (besides me, off course), who loves to sing and is different than most of her classmates…going her own way in being a unique person makes her an easy target for bullying. But since she’s a strong minded girl and learned from Andy’s wise words, none of that has happened. I thank BVB for that and for their awesome music!

-Inge Luijendijk

I can’t remember the exact date I found BVB, but around 2012 when I heard knives and pens for the first time. My life change for the better that day. Everyday I’m reminded that I’m not alone anymore. I fell in love with the idea of not being alone anymore in being an outcast to society. After that, I became hooked, I was still extremely depressed though. I felt like I had nothing to live for, but I knew that hurting myself was wrong and stopped myself every time I heard Andy’s voice, Jake and Jinxx’s guitars and CC beating up the drums. It kept me sane. Then my life went In a whole new direction on November 5, 2014. I saw them live for them first time. I walked in still struggling with depression, still struggling with self harm. Then I walked out and decided I needed to do more with my life then just cry myself to sleep every night. And I am. I wouldn’t be the same person I am today without those five amazingly crazy guys.

-Alicia Sullivan

BVB has help a lot of us get through personal problems, they taught us to accept ourselves for who we are and that we shouldn’t care about what others say or think about us. BVB is generally and amazing band they just have this welcoming vibe, like you part of the family, they just make everyone laugh and have a good time, there music is just flipping amazing, and the way they go off at haters who tries to ruin everyone’s fun is just bloody awesome. I have to say since I’ve been listening to them I’ve been a lot more happy and a lot more self acceptance.

-Shailyn Kloppers

Black Veil Brides is a band made up of five ridiculously talented men who seem to have a talent for putting smiles on people’s faces. Ever since day one, they have always encouraged us to accept ourselves for the way we are and chase our dreams, no matter what people tell us. As a result, they have created a community of dedicated people called the BVB army through the fabulous music they have made. This community is a safe place for anyone to escape to when they need to put life on pause for a little while. Black Veil Brides is also living proof that the concept behind positive deviancy actually does exist. To reflect that and how huge an impact BVB has had on my life, I used to highlight my hair red and blonde. Although I can’t really ask my parents to take me to get those highlights done anymore, I will always be proud to be a member of the BVB army.

– Rin Johnson (@ErinJohnson27)

Guys you have no clue how much you have helped me. It may not be a huge deal to others because I have had ppl laugh at my face wen I say a band or book has helped me through. But it’s true I have never fit in , anywhere. This made me think that there was something wrong with me , something wrong with how I think and saw the world but u guys told me that it is okay . That I am great just the way I am. Because of you guys I am now in a college of my choice studying a subject I love and moving forward towards a future that is mine. And it is not just me, you guys have helped a whole army of people, literally. Thank you we love you. And I hope I will get to see you guys live one way or the other even if I have to fly all the way to America.

Love you,

-Nivedita Anbuchevlan

Four years ago, I fell in love with a band and that band was called Black Veil Brides. I fell in love with their lyrics , music and personalities faster than I could think. The band has been there for me when no one else has, listened when I thought no one was listening, all through the songs that they produce. Growing up , I’ve always felt alone in this world, different from other people but when I’m listening to BVB I feel I belong. I’m always grateful for the band and I think that they are exceptional talented and kind individuals. Without them, my life would be a lot less light, more dark. I just want to say thank you, for everything.

-Amy Walker (@devilschoir_x)

I try to not live in my past anymore, that’s why it is really hard to bring it up when it comes to this. I’ve seen this post a lot and didn’t want to say anything, I shut myself down. Black Veil Brides music did help me a lot. Without them, growing up, I have self inflicted wounds from depression and landed in therapy on and off. I was bullied really bad in middle school,didn’t have a good family life, I really hated myself and wanted to give up. I tried killing myself once but ended up in the hospital…thats all behind me now even if I still get depressed and have suicidal thoughts.I stopped cutting but the feeling to do it again gets strong sometimes. When I feel like I’m in the dark place again, I pick up my bass or listen to music to motivate me to live. Black Veil Brides really helped me with it when I discovered them and I felt like there’s always someone there for me but I still wonder, In The End,As I Fade Into The Night, Who Will Tell The Story Of My Life, Because I’m Not Afraid To Die. I Lost It All once but We All Fall Down Sometimes… I love You.

-Rachel Tuomi

 

The day 6 years ago that I first heard black veil brides I found knives and pens and I fell in love they have changed my life forever. Their music has made me cry and I have never once had anything like that happen with another band or another type of music. Black veil brides is one of a kind I love all the boys they have made my life better than i could ever expected. I will love black veil brides forever and I will never forget what they have done for me.

-Lacie Farr

Black Veil Brides has done so much for me. They were always there when no one else was. I know y’all probably get this all the time but i do really mean it. You guys gave me a voice when all there was, was hurt. I am proud to say that i am a BVB Army member and i will defend y’all with everything i have. Y’all helped me and now i can be myself with no fears of rejection. I love you guys and i can’t wait for the day of meeting y’all will come. Whether it’s now or a few years down the road. I dream of the day i can sit down with y’all and share my story and talk with y’all and just hang out. Thank you for existing. Thank you Andy for pursuing your dream. If it wasn’t for you bringing the idea of this band none of y’all would be changing as many lives as you are now. I truly believe that. I love you guys smile emoticon ♡ I hope all your dreams and wishes come true.

-Dakota Decker  (@biersackbunny_babygirl)

About 4 years ago I heard my first Black Veil Brides song which was Knives and Pens thanks to my older sister and since then I have found 5 heroes called CC, Jinxx, Jake, Ashley and Andy they have helped me through so much over these past few years, they taught me to not give a fuck about what anyone said about the way I dress or how I look, they were there when no one else was even though they weren’t physically there I felt it through their music, they also taught me if I put my mind to something that I really want then I can achieve it no matter what anyone says, they’ve also helped me through tough times through my life with suicide thoughts and also self harm, if I never discovered BVB that day I wouldn’t be here right now so I owe BVB my life because they saved me and I love them so much and Mariah this is an amazing thing your doing as well.

-Hannah Armstrong

They from moment one, have inspired me to keep going, always been great to me, Jake’s guitar that I bought is great too, class people and they really love their fans and that shows through may God bless them.

-Michael Wasley

Thanks to Black Veil Brides and the BVB army you guys have helped me so much. When I was having a kind sad day you all would make me happy again. You guys made me realize that it’s okay to be different and slightly weird. When I would be feeling down and thinking I fat and ugly you guys were always there for me… maybe not in body but certainly in spirit and in voice. Your music was like a shining beacon in the darkness that had shown me the light. Right now I’m going through a tough time and you guys and your music has really come through for me. It’s like the music speaks to me as though you were talking directly to me. You have truly helped and for that I thank you.

Love you guys,

-Bethany Rose

Black Veil Brides are a band that does a lot for their fans. They are different, and that’s one of the main reasons I really respect them. Each of them has a different backstory and contributes a lot to the band. Even though Andy has always said that they don’t really save their fans, I honestly think they do. I personally haven’t gone through what some people have, but I see what their music does. It really does help people through hard times. It could be any band but BVB connects to the fans more than any other band because they know what it’s like to be judged for being different. I respect them because they are unique and care for their fans.

-Qadira R.Moser (@Qadira_Redhorn, neverthefaithlessone.tumblr.com)

Black Veil Brides helped me out of depression thanks to them. I first heard them about a year ago my brother was listening to them. And the first song I heard was love isn’t always fair . And I liked it a lot so I’ve been listening to them all the time I feel like doing anything that can hurt me. So thanks to BVB you can say they have help me out so much in the past year. My friends always try to help me but they can’t with alot of things. Only BVB can help me with anything I have problems with I love BVB so much just because they helped me. They’ve made me feel more confident with myself. To say what I feel to someone. Not to care a lot what people think. I love all there songs. I can say if I never would have heard them I would be total different then I am today so thanks BVB you’ve helped me so much in the past year.

-Symantha Huff

Black Veil Brides. Talent. That’s one of the many words that just oozes out of BVB. Every song is incredible and unique. Five incredible men.

Not everyone is a fan of BVB and I’m sure people will take the piss out of fans and the band sometimes. But that won’t stop us/you. That is beautiful. We are the fallen angels!

-Josh Wicks

Black Veil Brides helped through so much. They mean a lot to me and if someone offends them or talks bad about them I’m right there defending them. BVB saved my life, they showed me that life is so much more. If BVB didn’t happen I would be suffering wanting to take my life away. I don’t know how to thank them for all they done for me. They may not know but they are a huge part of my life. And I believe in their lyrics, they have a huge meaning behind them. They also made me be confident about my life. I want to say Thank you so much for being a band and sharing music with us BVB army fans.

Love you guys,

-Sakura Hernandez

 

No one ever understood me I tried so hard to make people understand but I could not. I had no. When I discovered your music I feel like someone finally understands me like I’m finally accepted like I’m finally me . Thank you so so much for being my safe place I might never meet you but I just hope you know I owe you everything.

Thank you,

-Lily Kaye

Andy,Ashley,CC,Jake,and Jinxx these guys have helped me so much I can’t explain it I love you guys with all of my heart and when I say I love you I mean like you have saved me and I don’t know how to thank you more you are my saviors and when I have a tough time I just listen you you guys because it makes me happy . Perfect weapon and Knives and pens are the main songs that I love from you guys and I just wanted you to know that you guys are the reason I don’t cut and believe me I’ve been tempted but y’all have me the strength to get over it. I am proud to call myself a proud BVB soldier…. I love BVB and I have wanted to meet you guys for years but I can’t because I don’t have the money but I will some day love you guys love one of you #1 fans.

-Shelby Higgins

I ‘stumbled’ over the band while going through interviews and videos on YT. The Bryan Stars interview with Andy and Danny was recommended to me and at that time, Andy looked exactly like so many musicians in the late 80’s/90’s looked like and that reminded me of the time I started going out, loving all those glam rock bands that no one knew about in Germany and noone really liked. Nevertheless it was a great time. I subscribed American Rock magazines and watched tons of music-videos on MTV (when there were still music videos and Headbangers Ball). I had many pen pals that listened to the same music. It also was a big community, though the conversations were much slower (lack of internet and all). So to get back to BVB. I checked the band out after I also heard some songs on American Rock channels on the internet radio and I really enjoyed the music. After a concert pause of about 8 years I even started going to shows again. I never stopped listening to music over the years, because I have always been addicted to music, but it got pushed back a bit by life, work and other stuff. So they were a real life changer for me. I found back to my deep love for music and the variety with all the amazing bands that are out there. Whyever BVB and everyone around the band feels a bit like friends and family, though so far I haven’t met the band itself. They have fans of every age and I met so many awesome people close to the age I am now, which doesn’t make me feel like an outsider age wise. When I hear their songs or see videos and pictures it always puts a smile on my face. They’ve grown on me and all the people I met through them and that’s an awesome thing. Life has so many ups and downs. It’s awesome to know there’s music that’s always there.

-Alexandra Bock (@Lexi22473_b)

BVB is definitely an incredibly important and influential band in my life. When I found their music I was dealing with a lot of conflict in my life (most of which I am still dealing with), but having music i could cling to and relate with made it a bit easier. I myself hope to front a band one day so they’re also a huge influence in that sense. I’m not going to say “BVB saved my life” because well, that’d be untrue, but if anything they made my life a bit easier to live. They gave me so hope and happiness during the dark days.

-Thank You, Megan Brennan(@swxxtblasphemy)

Dear Andy, Ashley, Jinxx, Jake and CC;

My amazing mother passed away last Saturday and I just want to let you know that she loved you all very much. She was inspired by everything you all had to say. She was introduced to BVB by me last year, instantly she fell in love. We saw you perform  on October 16th at Barrowlands in Glasgow. My mum and I loved the concert in Barrowlands and we were hoping to see you all play again sometime when you were next in the UK.  Earlier this month, she was taken in to a peaceful place for the sick and sadly passed two days later. My mum said she wanted Carolyn to play at her funeral and my dad and I are thinking. Mum would always play your CDs in the car and we’d both sing and jam to them while driving to country places. I just want to say Thank You for being great influences and musicians and making many people smile, my mum really loved you all and I still do! You all meant a lot to her and we really love how wise and articulate you all are.
Thank You, Kirsten Anderson (@Kirsten50838)
I’m thanking BVB on a couple of levels. Firstly for helping me become a better mum. ‘Ritual’ literally changed my perception on my children’s OCD Ritualistic behaviours!  I chilled out and accepted them as they are OCD’s too!
Being part of the BVBArmy is like being ‘home’. Ive been a fan of Rick and metal for 30 years and only now I’ve found ‘my band’. I guess finding a rock band you click with is like a footie fan finding their ‘club’. It’s a place I belong.
Lastly…dayum do I have fun at BVB gigs! Fun from being in the line, to the gig, to hugging everyone goodbye. I loose myself to the music, it’s a beautiful feeling!

My life begins: A Thank You to Black Veil Brides and the BVB army!

Image

They say a picture or in this instance a screenshot is worth a 1,000 words. Well this is worth a million. Just them saying this to me has inspired me for a lifetime. I am thankful and honored to have the Black Veil Brides guys to have read my article(s) and approve of my writing. I also have to say thank you to the BVB army for always supporting me, backing me, and loving what I write. I am very appreciative, grateful, supportive, respect, honor, and love each and everyone the people who has given me positive feedback of my articles. I am over the moon at the moment.

I have so much love and respect for Black Veil Brides it’s not even funny. They changed my life on three separate dates 1/27/13, 10/3/13, and 12/11/13. This year has been a big year for me. Its funny. I came into 2013 with NO New Years Resolution and now I will end 2013 on a big note that being said, I found my person, I found the career I want to do for the rest of my life, and one being able to breath in my own skin again and loving the person who I am.

Black Veil Brides is not just a band. It’s a community of belonging. Where outcasts, disenfranchised, and not so popular youth, adults, and the elderly. Black Veil Brides help lost souls find their belonging in the messed up society. A society where life’s dredgers are at times cruel to good people. Black Veil Brides help those in the BVB army find who they are as people. People who are lost, don’t know where they are going in life, and just need guidance in life. I have seen the beauties of this band inspire a lot of people through artwork and through their own writing either through journalism, story writing, or wanting to become a musician.

Black Veil Brides is the greatest thing to ever happen to me in my life. I have never felt this way about any band before. They carry something rare and magical about them that people can’t recreate. Their meaning and power behind their lyrics is empowering and inspiring for 3 million plus BVB army members. I am just one of them to have been touched very deeply by their music and lyrics.

I am so happy to have this wonderful band in my life. They get so much hate and I just don’t get it. I have put the past behind me now, I have the future and present to look forward too. I can’t wait to go to college to see my options on what I can do to jump-start my journalism career. I can’t wait to show the world what I am capable of cause all my life I was told I could not through doctors and bullies. I have believers now that believe in me that I can do this. I WILL. I have stay strong this far. Their ain’t no stopping. I can do more and more. I have more things I want to do. Music is such a beautiful thing to ever happen to me. Because of music I can live my life in such a way that I can not be bothered with what people negatively say about me(LOL do not pay attention to them any ways, screw them). I have so much respect, appreciation, and love for music.

Bands like Black Veil Brides deserve a lot of recognition in the world but the world can be cruel at times cause they do not understand Black Veil Brides message and what they stand for as band for who they are. It pisses me off at times that they are not getting the level of recognition they deserve and it was seen at the Golden Gods Awards 13′ when they did win an award that us lovely BVB army voted for them. I want to see a room full of standing ovations instead of boos. I have so much respect and support for what Andy and Ashley said at the GG 13′. People have seem to lost respect any more. So I wish for further award shows that BVB attends they do get at least an applause or standing ovation instead of WWE or WCW booing and heckling.

I also want to see in the coming year of 2014 “Some” BVB haters repenting. Not all of them are going to like BVB. They can have that opinion all they want. I am entitled to my opinions and they are entitled to theirs. Some BVB haters might have been led wrong and read things that are not true about the band. So that is something I would like to see.

I would like to end this little article on a thank you note. I never got to do this before but its a special shout out and honoring those who have my back. I love you all. It means the world to me that you all support, believe, and love my writing. I only wish you all the best in life and best of wishes.

Special shout out and thank yous too: My main family, Black Veil Brides them being Andy, Jake, CC, Jinxx, and Ashley, Mandy, Pippy, Marc, Rachel, Amy S, Chris and Amy Biersack, Mark Pitts, Mia, Adrianna, Amy M, Elle, Chase, Taryn, Jessica, Court, Emily, Liss, Meagan, Becki, Courtney, Sammi, Sarah, Marine, Vicci, Ash, and many others on twitter that have very lovingly supported me and loved my writing. I know I am forgetting to mention a lot

I still have no words as to what happened on 1/27/13.10/3/13, and 12/11/13. I will forever love, respect, admire, support, be grateful, thankful, and honor what Black Veil Brides does for their fans and still does this very second. To know one band does truly care and makes the lives of their fans that much better including mine is greatly needed in the world. Rock and Roll may be anemic but it’s not dead. I hope Black Veil Brides puts the iron in the influx into this dying music scene. I love you Black Veil Brides. Words can not express my love for you all. I only wish you all the best in the happenings of Black Veil Brides endeavors and to you all individually. I hope one day you can dominate the world and be the biggest band in the world.

I want to express my gratitude and thank you to Black Veil Brides again for helping me rise my writing from the ashes. Giving me the tools to be creative again. Be comfortable in who I am creatively wise. Because you guys my future career is set and I am going to master it and work my ass off for it. Thank you for inspiring me so much so that I can not be voiceless person in the crowd. I am going to stand up and tell people what I believe in. I am grateful for the fact that such inspiration has been given to me in this screwed up world we are in. It’s very beautiful in fact. I have not written a thing creatively wise in 5 years. You guys showed up in my life and revamped my creativity so much so that It jumped to me wanting to start a career out of it. No amount of thank you’s can be said enough. Best of wishes to you BVB. I love you all.

NEVER GIVE IN, NEVER BACK DOWN, NEVER GIVE IN, NEVER BACK DOWN, WHEN YOUR LIFE FEELS LOST(FIGHT AGAINST ALL ODDS!) NEVER GIVE IN, NEVER BACK DOWN… AND…RISE UP AND CELEBRATE YOUR LIFE.

P.S. YOU are all amazing. Just wanted to say that. ❤

Black Veil Brides: The hypocrisy and lies of the internet( A band of extreme hate exposed as great band to society)

I was once a deemed hater of Black Veil Brides. A band known of its wide-spread hate throughout the internet through many hate blogs, hate Facebook pages, and twitter pages. I have been scouring the internet this week to get into the science of what makes a Black Veil Brides hater tick or what fuels there fire. Its simple. Give them what they want. So I decided that reading many, many back logs of posts, tweets, and articles of supposed BVB hater “Bloggers”. What is fascinating to me is there lack of knowledge to back their claims and to start-up rumors about a band they hate so much about. I will give you examples through out the article you are reading(This article was a struggle to produce cause of the fact I want this one to be an epic one). I will say this though. I am proud to be in the BVB army and a apart of something so amazing that “Grinds some gears.” a little. Which makes me giggle cause they are hot and bothered cause BVB has so much success and all they have is computer to type on. Black Veil Brides is one of those bands either they love or hate. I am glad and grateful to have experienced both spectrum’s of being a BVB hater and now a huge BVB fan. But I am truly blessed the order it came in though. Hater before becoming the fan. Becoming the BVB’s fan was one of thee greatest things to ever happen to me. The moment when I let my guard down and let BVB’s music, message, and lyrics pour into my soul, my heart, my life, and let the healing process begin so I can continue living my life in a positive manner and gave me the strength to carry my life on is by far one of thee greatest feelings in the world. I can’t tell you the feeling it feels to let a band into your life especially one you just moments before betrayed with words and disagreed upon. I view this as purgatory karma. Karma at which it made me want to suffer in a beautiful paid back way as in life gave you melons here you get to fall in love with a band you hate(NOW FUCKING LOVE WITH ALL THE POTATOES IN THE WORLD) the weird and cool way how good karma works out that way. What a beautiful thing I have been blessed with. BVB’s music has helped me out so much throughout in 2013. This year has been a big year for me. It’s the first year I gave a “Second Chance” to band that I hated upon. It was the greatest feeling in the world to let BVB’s love through their music go through my heart. soul, and veins. Fuck hating. As you will continue to read on throughout my new article you will see why a band like Black Veil Brides needs all the support, love, and backing up they deserve.

Please note this article took me awhile to create in my head. The vortex of the information I researched for this article was just too great for me. I went on to as much hate blogs, Facebook pages, and twitter pages to better understand what comprises the thoughts, actions, and psychological matter behind a Black Veil Brides hater. It is although sad to read what one has to slander against Black Veil Brides and their hateful actions towards a band of positive manner and major success. It still concerns me at the health and well-being of these really active Black Veil Brides haters. I have found that constantly hating and having negative thoughts/attitudes towards something or in life in general can really badly affect ones health stress wise. Although I could careless about these haters it just concerns me. One can have their opinion about Black Veil Brides. Love them or hate them for all I care but haters are you okay. Laughing out loud.

In this article I am going to discuss what I have read and learned from these hater blogs, Facebook pages, and twitter pages. One thing is for certain these people want attention and are desperate for it. They get a rise from posting such a portentous tweets, status, posts, or whatever it is they do to get attention. It’s generally sad that I do what I do to get positive feedback they do it to get negative feedback. I write articles, reviews, and rants to express myself in a positive manner. They do theirs for negative manner and to express themselves in a negative way. What is sad though is psychologically they think they are doing it in a positive manner and doing a greater good for society plus doing a service for the world. When in reality its the exact opposite. It’s generally sad when someone is so hateful they have to get a personality and post slander on the internet. I hope I explained that into context for you.

Can a band give you an irreversible sexually transmitted disease. NO. On some of the Black Veil Brides hate Facebook pages I have read that Black Veil Brides music gives people AIDS(Auto-Immune Deficiency Syndrome) It was truly heartbreaking and really annoying to read something like that posted not on only one hate page but three separate hate pages on Facebook. AIDS is only given to someone who is infected with it. Music is not infected with AIDS. Good grief. Laughing my ass off. Use your noggin and think before you type is what I preach. It’s truly sad to see a beautiful band like Black Veil Brides get such slanderous remarks against them. I do agree there is bad music out their. I won’t name any names because I respect people as human beings. Plus it’s not cool at all to joke about AIDS. AIDS isn’t something someone should joke about. It’s a horrible disease one who gets it. My thoughts and prayers go out to anyone affected with the disease because it’s a death ridden disease I would not want to plague on to even not so on my closest enemies.

Black Veil Brides is NOT gay. All five of them are heterosexual individual meaning they prefer women and only women. Sandra Alva a former Black Veil Brides drummer is an openly gay human being. All of BVB support LGBT equal rights and marriage. I writing this article support all LGBT equal rights and marriage cause I have a few friends who are openly gay, lesbian, transgender, and bi. I am a closet bi myself. I got bullied as a child and throughout my school years with the term “Faggot” cause i wore nothing but black and band t-shirts to school. I have overcome my bullying. But It really pisses me off when I see derogatory terms thrown at BVB. I actually awhile ago on a grocery shopping trip experienced the “Emo Faggot” term to be said to me. I also got the all famous looks for just being myself and just wearing a BVB t-shirt out in public. I was proud wearing that shirt. It makes me feel awesome and grateful to be a part of something so great. I love the message BVB carry’s. But what was said to me in public really opened my eyes of the level of bullying Black Veil Brides gets on a daily influx. Its fucking disheartening to go through such a thing in public. It’s a cry shame that people can’t keep their opinions to themselves without hurting another individual. Bullying is never okay. Period. I hate bullying. I had to go through it all my life. I of course flip them off and walked away cause that is who I am. Made me think for a while about my time of being a former BVB hater and I never wanting to ever go back to being one ever again. BVB is my life now. To get called “Faggot”, “Emo-Fags”, “Emo-Faggots”, and all the amount of derogatory terms in the planet must get tiring on a day-to-day basis. My heart, vibes, and love goes out to the 5 individuals that comprise BVB who receive this amount of hate everyday. I am truly grateful and thankful that the BVB army steps up and tells BVB they are amazing, beautiful, cool, genuine, and bad ass people on a day-to-day basis because they need to be reminded everyday what their music does for us and how much it means to every single BVB army member. It’s truly great how the BVB army outweighs the haters. 🙂

I also have come across some conspiracy theories of these BVB haters. I have never had one of these ever when I was BVB hater. In fact I rarely said my opinion about BVB when I did hate them(NOW I FUCKING LOVE THEM). I just went on with my day as these extreme BVB haters should do. Its preposterous if you ask me. The conspiracy theories are Andy Six sings to auto tune, BVB rip off from other artists, and this one that made me go outside to scream and lol at the same time Andy sings just like that Justin Bieber guy and their music sounds so much like Nickleback. Okay to back up some shit here. BVB DOES NOT USE AUTO TUNE. Andy sings naturally to ROCK AND ROLL music not POP music and uses no programs whatsoever to tune his voice all edgy and out there. BVB writes their own music. I am tired of reading every where they ripped off Avenged Sevenfold and so and so. I tell these haters time and time again. Go purchase Wretched and Divine: The Story of the Wild Ones deluxe edition and view the DVD of the documentary of the making of Wretched and Divine. Its one hundred percent REAL. One hundred percent not SCRIPTED. One hundred percent ALL THEIR OWN SONGS AND COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL. Go and read their lyric booklets in their you will read a music copyright from each musician of who composed what song and all their entertainment company information from agents, lawyers, etc. Which means they HAVE legitimately written everything ALL themselves with the right copyrights, measures, and legalities. By the way, Andy hates auto-tune he said it in an interview once. I heard him say it. Don’t get me started on the Nickleback and BVB argument. In my opinion BVB is way different musically than Nickleback. BVB has more anthemic stadium or intimate venue songs and pure rock and roll songs that one can have a good time and party too. Nickelback has bar worthy songs in my opinion and is not my personal cup of tea to begin with. Plus in my opinion BVB sounds a hell of a lot better than Nickleback. Have your opinions, I will respect yours. Those were mine, I hope you respect mine as well. Please respect them. Andy does not EVEN come close to singing just like Justin Beaver. Andy has his own signature, unique, angelic, soulful, beautiful, charismatic, and edgy singing voice. The beaver has his. I can listen to Black Veil Brides music all day and never get bored with listening to Andy’s voice, the dual guitars, kick ass drum beats, killer bass, and the guitar solos, bridges, breakdowns, etc. I listen to all their CD’s from WSTW(We Stitch These Wounds), STWOF(Set The World On Fire), and W&D:TSOFW(Wretched and Divine: The Story of the wild ones). I can hear the progression they have made individual that being said with Jinxx, Ashley, Jake, and Andy. CC progression from STWOF to W&D was as he said it best “Take it to the next level” progression. CC stepped in for Sandra Alva when she left the band during the changing period of WSTW to STWOF eras. Sandra went on to another band called Modern Day Escape( A killer band I would urge people to check out). With each member of BVB maturing individually and together musically with each record they produce is phenomenal and ground breaking. I loved hearing with each record their individual and together “Take it to the next level” feats. It’s just insane that people come up with conspiracy theories of a band that writes and records their own style of music for millions of people around the world. There’s Google to back your claims haters. But I guess “Lazy syndrome” gets the best of people enough that stupidity makes these stupid claims above. Stupidity kills.

Black Veil Brides haters do just about anything to get attention on the internet. I have come to that conclusion. They either will Photoshop something very horrid of the band of something horrific or write something so hurtful that it’s just too much. I also have come across biased journalist who have a professional job and get real paid money to write for a living when I am sitting here writing this and get diddly shit cause I do this out of the greater good of devotion and love out of my heart and soul I have for music and a band who I think deserves a “Standing Ovation” instead of getting boos at an award show cause BVB won an award for “Song of the year” which marked BVB the first ever band getting three Golden Gods in a row. Bands like BVB who have similar messages and lyrics deserve “Standing Ovations” instead of hatred on a daily basis. It’s just makes me scratch my head on how parents raise their kids now days. Do parents teach their kids to respect others even if they don’t like that individual whatsoever. People can co-exist with one another if people were not so cruel, deceitful, and malicious towards each other. It’s about time the metal community comes as a whole. We don’t have to go “I love you” to each other all the time. Like when was it okay for someone to hate someone else’s music choices because it was not their cup of tea. It’s not fucking okay. Bullying is not okay period. I don’t give a fuck if someone likes Justin Bieber, One Direction, Selena Gomez, or whoever the fuck it is they listen too. I don’t go up to them and say I hate the bands you listen to go die in a corner. That is wrong. Instead people should just ignore people who have different music tastes than other people do and go on with their day. Its simple. Just like I don’t get this shit at all and I experienced it at the BVB concert I went too. I get that if you are a dad and need to go and be their for your kid who wants to see BVB I get that. Go to the bar and have a good time in their instead of just being their and crossing your arms like a badass and half flipping off BVB. I caught three assholes doing this at the October 3rd Black Veil Brides and Bullet For My Valentine concert I went to at the Knitting Factory in Spokane, WA. I saw these three dudes being all macho and shit. If you don’t like why be their for a band you hate. Go to the bar and have some coffee or water. Go somewhere else besides being there with a hateful appearance. Thank you BVB for ruining these fuckers day cause you guys were doing what you loved doing and that was performing in front of people who truly cares about your music.

BVB haters its simple. Don’t listen to the music or pay attention to it if you don’t fucking like. Best advice I can give to you all. Go live positive lives and don’t be a negative Nancy on the internet. If you are respectful to us we will be respectful to you. Simple as potatoes their.

I am truly proud to be in the BVB army. I know all of us have our faults and shit. We are all not perfect. I am not perfect and never claim to be. It took me 6 days to comprise this article and gather the thoughts into context into a complete article. YOU all are worth it. YOU are amazing to me. YOU all mean so much to me. Every time I get feedback from one of my articles. I have to say this. I go freaking nuts and I cry happy tears cause being at 21 and finally finding my calling in life is blessing. I truly appreciate, love, am grateful, and take all the comments I get in gratitude and stride. YOU all are the world for me. I can’t wait to make this a career some day to kick some ass in the rock and roll journalism field because I am finding that great journalists are lack in this journalism field too as much as there is a lacking for rock and roll music in society. I hope to make it a live someday and make it so that people get excited about reading again the ones who hate reading. Thank YOU. I send nothing but my love and wishes to each and every one of you. I love you all.

Black Veil Brides music does so much for me the list can go on forever. BVB not only inspires me to better myself they also make me believe in myself too. I struggled with that all my life. I never believed that I could do things. But they have opened my eyes and inspired me with much perseverance that if I work my ass of enough my dreams can come true. I can’t wait to lead my own legacy and show people my excellent writing skills. Thank you BVB for being there when I needed someone the most. YOU five lovely individual are amazing, gifted, talented, and beautiful soled human beings. I love you Black Veil Brides so much more than I could scream.

RISE UP AND CELEBRATE YOUR LIFE…. NEVER GIVE IN..NEVER BACK DOWN. NEVER GIVE IN…NEVER BACK DOWN…WHEN YOUR LIFE FEELS LOST(FIGHT AGAINST ALL ODDS!).. NEVER GIVE IN.. NEVER BACK DOWN

Most of those BVB hate pages are inactive to mostly active. I believe the inactive ones come out when something like what happened at the Revolver Golden Gods 13′ happened which I fully back and support BVB on what they did or one of their favorite bands hates the band they hate. It sucks that they have to waste their lives away on a perilous meaningless page instead they could be doing something with their lives. Sad. Their you have it. Mariah’s “Potato Queen’s” TMZ article on everything BVB haters. Now eat some potatoes for me BVB army and have a good one. ❤

Black Veil Brides: Hero’s of the Universe( A raw and uncut article from the emotions of the Potato Queen)

Black Veil Brides has been a band for several years now. I only just this past January 27th, 2013 got into them hardcore due to an unhappy situation I was going through. I in January had to get tested for cancer for the first time. My white blood cells where showing signs of inflammation(which is a sign of cancer or red flag warning which thank god it was the red flag warning) somewhere in my body. Which I was put on several more test’s. But during the time I was getting the tests I had made a time to end my life cause I did not want to live anymore with anymore medical issues and any more medical pain. I already I had at the time 2 severe headache conditions which one was rare. I also had other medical issues as well. The headache conditions is what is causing me to be disabled. I was done being a medical guinea pig anymore. The doctors were treating me poorly. Some bullied my indirectly. So on January 27th I was going to end my life cause I was tired of being in pain and tired of all the medical bullshit I was being put through. The cancer scare is what pushed me off the edge. The fatal mistake I made that saved my life was going through Youtube music section. The music at the time I was listening to was not working. Then I saw the new BVB music video for “In The End” I at the time being a former hater tried to avoid it at all cost but this time fate wanted me to push on the link to the music video. The next paragraph will explain the magic.

I clicked the music video and I being the hater said “Why the fuck did I just push the BVB video.” then all of the sudden Andy spoke to me. I call it the instant Black Veil Brides hater removal two by four being smacked in between my eyes. Andy sang “In the end as we fade into the night, who will tell the story of your…..” I listen to the full song through by the end of the song. I was on ever fucking social media of Black Veil Brides and I was liking and following everyone them through twitter, facebook, tumblr, and youtube.. I was just baptized into a new human being. The strength I was given by the band to fight this hellish battle I am going through with my medical issues. Made me believe their is hope and faith in the world.

Just getting over the realization that the band that I just hated a few seconds before just fucking saved my life cause I planned on killing myself that night when everyone was asleep. What a fucking contradiction I kept saying. I have since put my hater ways behind me. Locked the hater tight shut in a coffin and buried her fictitiously six feet under. The hater I was once before has died and will never be resurrected. Death is permanent. So in the beauty of this. I took my last ever suicide attempt and turned into a deep and ever meaningful love for a band I once betrayed. The only thing I killed that night was the BVB hater I was. Which I am truly grateful and thankful to have done to me. Best thing ever to happen to me EVER really. Doesn’t top me winning fourth place at competition at individual state competition in Boise, Idaho. But its up their with me getting my high school diploma(Fuck you doctor haha 😉 ). Nothing really feels amazing than becoming a BVB army member its literally an life changing moment. My life is now better cause of it.

These guy’s get so much hate its not even funny. I ignore all the hate as much as possible but when the trolls are on every fucking social media site possible post after post with their hate towards BVB its gets pretty tiring. I also hate it when the get called faggots. It just boils my blood when the get purposefully called that every time something really great happens to them. Oh well. You all get the magical “Fuck You, Motherfucker.” I respect your opinions haters but don’t fucking cross the line with your’s. That’s why several BVB army member’s come flocking to you cause you cross the line. Post something intelligent instead of fucking insulting all the fucking time.

Through the months I have been a BVB fan. I have become great friends with numerous people of the BVB army. Everyone of the BVB army is very beautiful inside and out. I like to mention their dedication and love towards a five piece band that forever captivates the world. BVB isn’t just any ordinary band. BVB has all the right ingredients to make one great powerhouse anthemic band to to have mass in masses of a massception of the BVB army supporting them.

The love the band gives to their fans is just awesome and heartwarming. I have gone through probably 4-5 boxes of tissues of BVB fan stories already. I feel their emotions through their posts and it’s an everlasting feeling. What BVB does to their fans not only changes their lives forever it also better’s and brightens their lives for their eternity. With each and everyone of Black Veil Bride’s wisdom and advice to their fans is a lifetime of knowledge and inspiration for that one fan.

Now we come to the clincher of the article where you pull out 4-5 boxes tissues. Black Veil Brides has been really prevalent this month. I seen them live for the first time on October 3rd in Spokane, WA at the Knit. That day honestly changed my life forever. I have no words to fit how lovely BVB was live that day. Forever in debt. But anyways,  I have seen so much hate recently towards BVB on my personal accounts that it has been bothersome. The more I ignore it. The more hate flocks to me. This week hasn’t been the best week at all for my medical issues at all. I haven’t felt good for 3-2 months. I haven’t been eating properly in weeks. At times I feel like giving up but who come to the rescue. Black Veil Brides. They were their every step of the way through all the bullshit I was going through. My medical issues are still kicking my ass. It sucks that not even a doctor can help me at this time. I have been braving the storm and I know I can fight this tough ass battle. All I have repeated over and over again in my head was BVB’s famous lyrics that have inspired the BVB nation. “Never give in, Never back down.” Its hard dealing with day to day daily life dredgers but to know that BVB is on my side in spirit helping me fight this really means a lot.

I have no words to say how thankful and honored I am to be in the BVB army. I wish I NEVER was a former hater all. But no one can erase their past. The past is the past its unchangeable. But the present and future are. So glad I made the drastic change in becoming one of you. You in the BVB army. YOU all mean the world to me. I could not thank you all enough for every tweet and gesture said to me. YOU are all amazing. I love you all.

Black Veil Brides me so much to me now. I am going to be a fan forever. I am so excited to be with you all in the BVB army and with BVB during their many adventures and the long BVB rock and roll party journey ahead of us. BVB has all the cards to be one of the greatest bands of our time.

So Thank you BVB for putting out inspirational, aspiring, thoughtful, helpful, healing, and every word that is positively said about BVB. BVB has helped saved thousands of lives including mine through the whole world.

If you’re planning on committing suicide. No that you are not alone. Know that a saviour is always their for you when you’re feeling alone and to Never give in, never back down. The suicide hotline is 1-800-273-8255. For people who self harm here is tumblr link with major numbers and hotlines for your region: http://insteadofcutting.tumblr.com/hotlines

know that these things are temporary solutions to bigger problems that could have bigger consequences to your health and well being and even death. Know that someone out there loves you and care about you. YOU are worth it. YOU are not alone. YOU are amazing.

I am happy to report that I am now in suicide remission. I haven’t had one single suicidal thought since Black Veil Brides came into my life in January. To know its October now and I know I can make it through even the hellish battles without thinking about suicide ever again. Makes one feel great about themselves. Cause of BVB I am now wanting to pursue a degree in creative writing next year so I can expand my writing and express myself in even bigger ways verses blogging. I plan on becoming an interviewer and writing for rock and metal magazines someday. As Andy said in an interview once “Rock Stars aren’t shit out of the sky” well neither are journalists. LOL. I have worked my ass off so forth to get to here. Its quite startling to me already that I have the inner workings of becoming a great writer. This all inspired and aspired through Black Veil Brides but its up to me to make this happen. Cause I need to make my own legacy and show this world what I made off. If you are reading this. YOU have something that makes you great too. Don’t feel down that you don’t have anything to show the world yet. It will come to you in the most beautiful way possible. Keep your head up high. Stay strong. Be positive. Always remember “Never give in, Never back down.”

BLACK VEIL BRIDES ARE THE MUSICAL BATMAN’S OF THIS EARTH. THEY ARE ARE UNSUNG HERO’S. THEY ARE SAVIOURS. THEY MAY CALL THEMSELVES NOBODY’S HERO BUT IN REALITY….THEY ARE HERO’S IN THE LEGION OF THE  BLACK THAT GIVE US THE TOOLS TO LEAD ON ALEGACY….. NEVER GIVE IN,NEVER BACK DOWN.
