Ashley Purdy- birth, age, family, school
American musician Ashley Purdy who stands tall with a height of 1.78 m was born on 28 January 1984. His birthplace is Berger, Missouri, the USA. His full name is Ashley Abrocket Purdy. Ashley is the bassist and chief vocalist of the rock band named Black Veil Brides (BVB, in short).
Having lost both his parents in early life, Ashley Purdy was raised by his grandparents in the small town of Missouri. He studied at the local school but was a misfit there. He had a keen interest in fashion, arts, and music and also participated in sports.
At age 18, Ashley Purdy moved to LA and started studying graphics designing. He first joined the Academy of Art in San Francisco and later took a transfer to the Otis College Of Art And Design, LA. He got graduation in Communication Design and obtained a BFA degree. He also learned about marketing and Advertising during the course.
Ashley Purdy- The interesting journey to BVB
Ashley had made the shift to LA to pursue a career in graphics designing. He, however, had harbored a love for music since his young days. He was always on the lookout for people with whom he could form a band. He had been with some bands such as Orgasm, Stolen Hearts, and Children of the Beast.
In LA, he saw an ad on Craiglist which was put by BVB frontman Andy Biersack and the ad mentioned that the band needed a bass player. Ashley Purdy met Andy but he had an ulterior motive of stealing musicians from this band to form his own. But the environment of the band suited him and he opted to stay put in it. The year was 2009 when he joined this band.
On 20 July 2010, the band released their debut album named ‘We stitch these wounds’ It appeared on Billboard music list and also sold 10000 copies in the first week itself. More albums were released and were ‘Set the World on Fire’ (2011), ‘Wretched and Divine: The Story of the Wild Ones’ (2013), and ‘Black Veil Brides’ (2014). They also received the MTV’s ‘Favorite Breakthrough Band of 2011’ award.
In June 2018, a podcast was responsible for spreading fake rumors that the band is separating. To clarify such absurd claims, he released a lengthy statement,
“Just for the record and clarification: And this is expressed in great humour..
I never once said, “the band is breaking up”, as news outlets used as their headline to click bait you basically into reading way more into a story than it actually was.
The miss information came from a podcast that I was going with a fellow musician and another industry colleague where we we’re just having a discussion about music and laughing and having a good time. It was basically a friendly discussion and less of an interview but when someone did ask what’s on the horizon for Black Veil Brides the honest answer is still the same. We have eight shows left on the Final Warped Tour ever, so again, yes, that’s the last time you’ll see us play there, and again, come see us now as this will be the last time. See the context.
We have one festival show out in October and that’s it, so yeah thats all thats on the calendar and that’s kind of how all of that got taken out of context.
Very few listened to the entire podcast in it’s entirety before that headline quote of the band breaking up got blown outta proportion, of course for something news worthy it played into the dramatic.
But honestly it was a lighthearted and fun discussion that one news outlet just writes Ashley says “the band is breaking up” and then so on and so forth everyone just takes that and runs with it again out of context from the entire discussion and not the literal words i’ve ever said.
Anyhow, Day 1 of Warped and we’re all excitedly looking forward to performing for you all. ‘See is there now cuz you won’t see us there again.’ Lol”
