Head to the link in my bio to check out the new @blackveilbrides music video for “When They Call My Name” directed by @sturgemedia with video and art contributions by @fatpogarty . I can’t even begin to describe how thrilled I am with the way this video turned out, it truly captures the connection that we have with the BVB army, the live show setting and the history of the band. Thank you all for making our dreams come true and for supporting us for so many years! I hope you all enjoy the video!
From the time I was born I’ve been surrounded by intelligent, powerful and strong women and cannot even begin tell you how thankful I am for that. Everyday I get to learn from and grow with my exceptionally beautiful, funny, creative and badass wife @thejulietsimms she is a constant source of inspiration for me and has helped me to become a better and more caring person. I grew up with the most incredible mother @amybsack who has been my friend, teacher and beacon of guidance through the rocky roads of life every second that I have been on this planet. Each day after school I would walk to my grandparents house where I would sit with my gran and chat about the news, Cincinnati reds baseball, politics, and anything else that may have come up, I still do that as often as I can with her to this day and she remains a central figure in my development as a person and in turn an artist. Thank you not only to these 3 women but all of the women in my family from my mother in law and sister in law to my aunts and cousins, thank you for helping me to be all that I can be and thank you to ALL the wonderful and kickass women around the world for all that you do on a daily basis. #happyinternationalwomensday
The end of #theresurrectiontour leg 1 last night in Las Vegas. Thank you for making this tour such an incredible experience, it was a long time coming and to be back on stage together every night was amazing and I can’t wait to kick back off in April! Thank you to @crowntheempire for setting the tone every night on stage and of course thank you to our long time friends in @askingalexandria for always being great guys and killer musicians. As always an extra special thank you goes out to the crew for all the bands on the tour for making the shows happen day in and day out! Here’s a shot from the end of the show last night with our pal @ogscottuchida #vale
A very Happy Valentines Day to my best friend in the universe and partner in laugher, music, occasional misanthropy, and absolute over the top undying and never ending love. You make me feel complete peace and happiness and your art and spirit constantly inspire me. I am the luckiest guy living and I love you more each day honey! Thank you @miked_tattoos for hooking up this incredible piece inspired by @the_maria_villebois beautiful artwork of @thejulietsimms as Sailor Moon!
Thank you London for a truly amazing last show of the UK leg of #theresurrectiontour It is always a pleasure playing in the UK and we cannot wait to see you all again PS everyone be sure to wish @ashleypurdyinc a happy Bday! Tomorrow we’re in Cologne Germany, seeya there! : @pinkishcreature
I hope you’re all having a great week so far! I wanted to do a #wcw post because while I am certainly enjoying this tour and having a blast with my band mates each night on stage, I really and truly miss my other half every second that I am away. It’s hard to describe what it’s like to be with someone from the time you are so young and to grow together and help one another change and mature for the better. Through good times, tough times and everything in between I am constantly reminded of just how lucky I am to have a wife and best friend like @thejulietsimms. (Also someone who will put up with me doing a weird dance when we are supposed to be doing a photo shoot as you see in this photo haha) My greatest wish for all of you is that you find someone who makes you feel this way! Tonight we are in Manchester England on #theresurrectiontour Let’s go! Photo from @westtowerwarrior shoot with @joshuashultz
I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported @blackveilbrides over the years and for giving us such a wonderful and exciting career. Through the years of recording and touring we have always been fortunate to have so many dedicated and kind people support us and allow for us to continue to make and release music. VALE is for you and I am thrilled that it’s been so well received and people are enjoying it! Tonight we kick off the UK/EU leg of the tour in Birmingham and I can’t wait to see you all there!
Tonight #theresurrectiontour is in Pittsburgh PA! Every night after the set we like to hand out set lists, towels etc. to you guys in the audience who have made the show so great! We want to show you that we appreciate that you guys spent your hard earned money to make these shows happen! Tonight however, given the location of the show I thought I might bring you guys some special gifts from my hometown! I know i know, they aren’t what you’re used to here in the Steel City..BUT hopefully you’ll still like them Seriously though I wanted to have a little fun with this “rivalry” AND give you guys some stuff that I really love #whodey
I am so thankful for every moment I get to spend with my Gran. She has always been one of my biggest heroes. She has inspired me not only by showing me the power of strength and courage by defeating illness but also the importance of intellectual pursuits and the usefulness of stimulating ones mind with new and challenging ideas and concepts no matter what stage in life you happen to be experiencing. She is truly one of a kind I am so happy I got to spend the day off in my hometown with my parents and family! Now on to Pittsburgh (whodey) for tomorrow’s show!
Thank you so much to everyone who has come to #theresurrectiontour so far! We are having blast on stage playing these songs and singing with you guys, I really look forward to the rest of the run. Also, I wanted to say a massive THANK YOU to everyone who has been so supportive and kind about our new record VALE that came out on Friday and the music video for “Wake Up”! You guys rock!
I’m heading to SLC to kick off the first @blackveilbrides tour in quite awhile and while I am extremely excited to get back on stage with the boys, I can’t help but also feel the sense of longing that comes with being away from the one you love. I am so incredibly thankful to have found my soul mate and best friend. When we met many years ago we fell in love but we were young and weren’t yet equipped to handle the challenges of life together as we do now. Through the years of growing up we have forged the solid structure on which we have built our new happy, healthy and sober life together and I couldn’t be happier. Thanks for always having my back, making me laugh every single day and inspiring me to be a better person and artist, my dragonfly @thejulietsimms ——- “Round your hair the sun lifts a halo, at your lips a crown of thorns
Whatever other deals going down, to this one I'm sworn
I'll work for your love dear
I'll work for your love
What others may want for free
I'll work for your love.” Photo #reposted from @thejulietsimms
