Black Veil Brides Andy Biersack Plays Slip and Slide

Black Veil Bride's sophomore release "Set The World On Fire" released this past week via Lava Music/Universal Republic Records sold an estimate of 20,000 to 25,000 copies in the United States in just its first week. This lead the band to do a promotional run of Hot Topic Meet and Greets across Southern California which included a free show happening June 18th at Hollywood's Hot Topic courtyard.

But with such success comes a tragedy and this struck frontman Andy Biersack during that Saturday night performance. During the band's 35-minute set Biersack climbed atop a platform and attempted to scoot/jump across it and back onto the stage but in his mists of doing this he fell on his left side breaking three ribs. Though he was indeed seriously injured Biersack continued to perform without resistance but has now been hospitalized.

Footage of the occurrence was caught on tape by a BVB Army recruiter and let's just say it isn't a pretty sight to  bear witness too. As such the Black Veil Brides will after the need of rescheduling will embark on this summer's Vans Warped Tour and then begin a spree of dates in the fall alongside Seattle's Aiden.
