The Black Veil Brides singer posted a message to fans on his Twitter feed announcing the move and asking for privacy.
Black Veil Brides lead singer and solo artist Andy Biersack has released a statement to fans after he was forced to move house due to continued harassment.
Andy took to Twitter after his address was seemingly shared online, leading to several unwanted vistors circling his home.
i appreciate the dedication so many have given to me and my career over the years however i must insist that finding information about, sharing the address & showing up at my home is inappropriate. We will be moving and i hope that going forward personal privacy will be respected— Andy Biersack (@andyblack) November 16, 2017
It’s not my intention to blow this out of proportion, i do not think there is a safety issue. i am just a rock singer, i want to be clear i do not think i am too special for human interaction, but privacy at home is important to all of us regardless of what we do for a living. pic.twitter.com/fGNZrMok4s— Andy Biersack (@andyblack) November 16, 2017
In his message, Andy details an odd encounter with three people in his front yard that resulted in him being followed down the street. While the intruders claimed to just be tourists, he later discovered they were fans who posted regularly about him online.
This is oddly remeniscent of Panic! At The Disco frontman Brendon Urie's decision to move earlier this year after a people threw items over his fence and drove around following him and his wife Sarah.
So, while we really shouldn't have to say this, can all the music fandoms out there please remember to always report any social media accounts posting the addresses of your faves. Then, hopefully, these poor bandmembers won't have to keep selling their dreamhouses all the time.
