Black Veil Brides frontman Andy Biersack has been in and out of the studio recently, putting together not only the 5th BVB album but also his solo debut as Andy Black, for which he's lined up quite a few special guests.
Not only is the legendary John "Feldy" Feldmann behind the production desk but various other favourites from the pop punk world have been seen stopping by the studio.
Let's recap over who has been spotted working with Andy thus far:
1) Patrick Stump
Will there be a soul-voiced duet somewhere on the record?
Week 2 of #AndyBLACK in the studio! What a pleasure it has been today to work and talk music, life & experiences with the incredibly talented and kind @patrickstump and to have @quinstagram playing guitar and adding his vast talents to this record! Thank you @johnfeldy for being the fucking man. This is truly a dream come true making this record! Photo by @zakkcervini (shoutout to little lightning)
2) Ashton Irwin
Feldy's latest protege clearly learning the ropes from a great. Will 5SOS sound much heavier now?

3) Gerard Way
He's back! He's actually back! Will this mean that the black parade will be reborn with Andy in tow? Probably not. But still, he's back!

An inspiring creative force and a true artist! This record just keeps getting more exciting! I can't wait for you all to hear it!
4) Rian Dawson
After laying down some drums for Andy, do you think Rian could convince the other ATL guys to come join in?
Huge thank you to @riandawson for coming in and lending his skills on the drums to the last few #AndyBLACK songs on the record! What a supremely talented and nice guy! I also enjoyed chatting NFL stats with him. We are nearing the end of tracking and I couldn't be more excited with what we have created! Photo by: @alliesaurousrex mastermind wizard @johnfeldy
