Andrew Biersack (Andy Six)Specification:
Andy's personality while he is singing is based on being a loner as a child. His real personality is way different then onstage. He is very sweet, treats women nicely, and is very funnyBackground:
(At least two full paragraphs.)[/b]Andy Six was born Andrew Dennis Biersack, he was born in Milwaukee- Wisconsin but moved to Cincinnati- Ohio at a young age. This outstanding young man was brought into the world on December 26th, 1990, making him 21 years of age. When Andy was young, he was the "out-cast" as you could say among many. Andy 6, was a character created to hide himself from the dangers of the world, then later on Andy Six, became who he is today. In the writing of his stage name, he prefers Andy Six, over Andy 6 and the infamous Andy Sixx. Many people make the mistake of spelling it with double X's. However, he now currently goes by his real name, Andy Biersack.
As a kid, he was over weight (in which he decided to lose the weight at the age of 13), and one of the only kids that adored to sport black. Of course alot of people thought that he was off, and weird. They avoided and mocked him, calling him names, such as "fag" and "emo".
At 13, Andy did decide to lose the weight, and got his hair styled. Suddenly, the "emo" fashion came into play, and he was no longer the loser to the kids that had once called him "fag".
Andy started out his musical career at the age of 14. Naming his band "Biersack", with a few of his friends participating in it. The mainly played the old cover songs of "Alkaline Trio" and "the Misfits". As he realized people really seemed to be enjoying what "Biersack" brought to the table, Andy knew he had to do something more. Thus, Black Veil Brides was finally born.
During his school years, Andy became used to jumping from place to place for reasons of his own. As well as his family's, such as the bullying and torment. The boiling point was reached to him and his parents after his family came to know the life of vandalization. Andy's possesions would be destroyed, his friends, realitives, and own family were threatened.
The music video "Knives and Pens" has significant meaning. Especially since the young boy in the video represents Andy himself. The video, was from his time in school. The "fag" and "emo" posters that decorated the locker, was what happened to Andy.
It was extremly hard on Andy to re-live those moments, that he tried to hard to repress. It was nothing but heart sickening to him to watch himself again as a child.
