Black Veil Brides’ Andy Biersack to Narrate Edgar Allan Poe In New Audiobook, Streams “The Tell-Tale Heart” Teaser


There may be no greater American horror author than Edgar Allan Poe (known to many by his goth name, ‘Night Pain’). The scandalous Baltimore native perfected the climactic twist with his ghoulish, groundbreaking tales of hearts under floorboards, bladed pendulums, premature burials, and embodied diseases crashing costume parties. And if there’s one voice in metal who we’d most want to hear narrating his stories on tape, I think we can all agree, it’s that of Randy Bly — what? No, probably not Andy Biersack of Black Veil Brides. Why? Is he doing that? Wait, he is? Well, shit!

Yup, it appears that publisher Rare Bird Books is releasing an audiobook of Andy Biersack presents The Works of Edgar Allan Poe, which they say will contain…

“…fully scored dramatic narration of…stories and poems, including The Tell-Tale HeartThe RavenThe Oval Portrait, and The Mask [sic] of the Red Death on vinyl, as well as exclusive download access to additional scored performances (A Campaign SongDream Within a Dream, Annabel LeeLenoreSpirits of the DeadThe Fall of the House of UsherThe Haunted Palace, and The Pit and the Pendulum), instrumental and narration-only versions, and other bonus material.”

So, just gonna be that guy: it’s MASQUE of the Red Death. Technically, it’s referencing the masquerade itself, not the Red Death’s mask, which, admittedly, is a big part of the story. Yeah, well, I’m not the one selling a record of me reciting Poe!

Anyway, you can check out Andy’s recitation of Poe’s story “The Tell-Tale Heart” below. Meanwhile, Black Veil brides, Motionless In White, and Ice Nine Kills are all heading back out on a second leg of their Trinity of Terror tour, so catch Andy Allan Poe at one of the following dates:
