BLACK VEIL BRIDES front man ANDY BIERSACK -- known in his solo career as ANDY BLACK -- will host this year's ALTERNATIVE PRESS MUSIC AWARDS set for CLEVELAND on JULY 17th.
Since breaking onto the national scene in 2010 as the frontman of BLACK VEIL BRIDES, BIERSACK released full-length albums with the band. He ventured out on his own as ANDY BLACK, with his latest solo release, "The Shadow Side," which debuted on the charts worldwide.
Said BIERSACK: "I am so honored to be hosting this year's fourth annual APMAs. I've attended every APMAs, and I've been fortunate to have a favorite moment every year. As host, I want to make people feel happy and create favorite moments for them, too. I want them to be stoked, whether they are attending the event or watching it from their homes."
ALTERNATIVE PRESS CEO MIKE SHEA added, "ANDY is one of the most dynamic and engaging musicians I think I've ever met. Besides being an amazing frontman on the rock stage, he's also one of the funniest off-stage. Over the past year, he's been bringing his comedic side to fans while touring with his ANDY BLACK project, and when we heard that he was interested in hosting the APMAs, we thought that there could be some real magic here in the making. Even before we got down into the details he had already dissected other hosts' successes and failures on other award shows and came to us with an entire analysis of what he could bring to the APMAs. We are really excited about his enthusiasm and dedication to the show and we know that music fans worldwide are going to be happily surprised to see the results!"
