The Ghost of Ohio
I am thrilled to announce that we will be playing a surprise show THIS SATURDAY at TOPCATS in my hometown Cincinnati Ohio! We will be joined by @thejulietsimms and @hyrothehero ! This is gonna be a very special evening and I am so excited to bring The Ghost of Ohio Tour back to my home! Tickets are available now at the link in my bio! Seeya there! 🆎🖤
This UK tour has been so much fun! Here’s a video @waywardjesselee took during last nights sold out show in Manchester! I really appreciate all of the support and love!❤️ Tonight we are in Brighton! Come sing with us 🆎🖤
“And there's nothing wrong with me This is how I'm supposed to be In a land of make believe That don't believe in me.”
They say you can’t go back, but last year at this time BVB was playing a handful of shows on the final cross country @vanswarpedtour and I was overcome with emotion. To think that I would never again have the opportunity to stand on that stage and perform at this festival that has meant everything to me was a difficult notion to process. However, here we are one year later and I was lucky enough to be asked to be a part of the 25th anniversary celebration shows. I get to perform once again on the tour that has meant the world to me from the time I was 12 years old. Many aspiring artists at that age dream of mainstream accolades and fortune and while those goals are entirely valid and understandable, if I’m honest with myself, my biggest dream at that age was to get to stand in that empty truck behind the Warped main stage and walk out to sing to the warped tour crowd. People of all walks of life who shared a common feeling, the sense of belonging and peace that came from a day at warped. For many of us this has been our safe haven, an opportunity to be exactly who we want to be and not be judged for it. My entire life changed when I first went to VWT and the experience of being a part of it for almost a decade has made an immeasurable impact on me. I met my soul mate here, I met life long friends here, I met many of YOU here. This summer I get two more chances to experience the “best day ever” and I can’t wait. 2 more goodbyes to an old friend🖤 Today we are on the Monster stage at 7:20 pm in Atlantic City! Seeya there! This photo is from BVB’s first VWT in 2011.
Check out @thejulietsimms amazing new single #badlove (via @sumerianrecords ) right now on all streaming and digital music retailers! There is no one in the world who inspires me more than her. Her work ethic, drive and passion is unparalleled and this song (and the entire record that’s coming ) is a masterpiece! She is my hero and her raw talent and creative ability is on full display in this track. Also be sure to watch the badass accompanying music video directed by @fatpogarty ! I can’t wait for you guys to see and hear everything that she’s about to drop! 🖤
Thank you so much @richeisenshow for having me on today! I had a blast chatting about my @bengals and @reds fandom and sharing stories about growing up in Cincinnati, my career, fantasy football names etc. It was a honor to be invited on the show and I throughly enjoyed the entire experience! You can see the full interview at the link in my bio! #513

Happy Anniversary to my incredible wife @thejulietsimms It’s hard to adequately express my gratitude for all that you have done for me and the joy and inspiration that you have brought into my life. It has been a long journey from the early days of us being rock and roll crazy asses and stowaways on one another’s buses, holding hands and falling in love on the grounds of Warped tour, through to that day 3 years ago when I got to stand in front of you while you wore the most amazing dress of all time and share our vows. On that day we began this journey together and I love you even more now then that day and I’ll love you more tomorrow and the day after until my final day and beyond. I owe you an immeasurable debt for everything you have taught me and the countless ways you have helped me and given me your love and devotion. Thank you for being my best friend and my “person” for life. Here’s to forever 🖤

“The promise” was inspired by my days spent driving up and down 50 west coming from my neighborhood on the west side of Cincinnati and heading towards downtown and into northern Kentucky where I spent almost all of my teenage years in bands, working on a dream. Every day I would use that drive as a chance to plan and think and hope and wish that one day I would be able to make music and tour the world. Over the years that dream has remained but like all of us as we grow up often our interests and methods change over time. This song is about trying to remain true to what you wanted the most when you had nothing and keeping that very same passion and drive close to your heart. You can check out the new lyric video for the song at the link in my bio! #theghostofohio
Happy #openingday to the very first professional baseball team, my hometown Cincinnati @reds ! Maybe this year is finally our year? #borntobaseball

I am thrilled to announce the second leg of my upcoming tour! I will be in the UK from July 5th through the 11th! Tickets go on sale Friday! More information including the support acts for this run coming soon!
That’s a wrap on the #ghostofohio press trip. Very little sleep (jet lag and also I apparently suck at sleeping ) but absolutely worth every second! Thanks to all of the various media outlets in the US and UK who gave me the opportunity to talk about my new record and the ghost of Ohio graphic novel! Now time to start rehearsals for the tour! Seeya soon 🆎🖤
