Andy Black (of Black Veil Brides) will be coming to The Varsity Theater along with up and coming pop-punk band The Faim on 5/8. Tickets for the show available HERE. Doors at 5:30pm // Show at 6:30pm. All Ages.
The Faim came into existence as naturally as their music. The Australian group met while in high school in Perth, and the friends soon began penning their own songs, inspired by bands like Fall Out Boy, Panic! at the Disco and Metallica, and an array of musical influences, from indie rock to jazz, to pop-punk. Their songs have resonated with fans all over the world. The band has already accumulated over 20 million total streams globally, and by the end of 2018, The Faim will have toured extensively, performing at festivals like Download, Slam Dunk, and Reading & Leeds, and sharing the stage with the likes of PVRIS, Against The Current, Sleeping With Sirens, Hands Like Houses, Lower Than Atlantis, The Dangerous Summer, and PVMNTS. Each evening onstage, the musicians aim to connect with every single person in the room to build a deeply personal fanbase.
Best known as the founder and lead vocalist for the American rock band Black Veil Brides, Andy Black is the solo project from Andy Biersack. “Following a natural progression in Biersack’s musical trajectory, from the metalcore birth of BVB to their evolution into a glam metal outfit, Andy Black’s pop-leaning rock, which debuted in 2016, was the next step in Biersack’s sound. In early 2016, debut single “We Don’t Have to Dance” was released, featuring cleaner vocals and incorporating a Killers-esque synth melody. His second single, “Stay Alive,” featured Matt Skiba (Alkaline Trio, blink-182). The Shadow Side was produced by John Feldmann (Panic! At the Disco, The Used, Good Charlotte) and included guest spots from emo/pop-punk friends Ashton Irwin (5 Seconds of Summer), Joel Madden (Good Charlotte), Rian Dawson (All Time Low), Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance), and Patrick Stump (Fall Out Boy). Combining the muscle of arena rock with a pop-punk spirit, Andy Black provided a new outlet for Biersack’s many influences. Black’s sophomore effort, The Ghost of Ohio, followed in early 2019.” — Neil Z. Yeung, All Music.
