Dear friends, Tomorrow is the final day of 2016 and I wanted to wish you all a very happy new year. 2016 has been a year of changes for me and as we come to a close on this chapter of our lives I wanted to say thank you to all of the beautiful people and events that surrounded me the past 364 days. In 2016 I married my best friend in the world and became the happiest man alive. @thejulietsimms makes me feel a joy and love that I cannot describe to you and I am so lucky that she has stuck with me through all the chaos of our younger years and that we get to experience this life together. I can't wait for our future. In 2016 I ended an idiotic cycle of self medicating and irrational behavior and I am now proudly sober and free of all alcohol. In 2016 I regained my moral perspective and conviction once lost in many ways, notably my interest in animal advocacy and remaining meat free and in 2016 I was able to continue to release music, tour the world and live my dream with all of you. Thank you for all that you have done to support me and my passion over the past 10+ years. As a quick PS before I go I wanted to say thank you to both the Biersack and Simms family for hosting Juliet and I this Christmas, I can't describe to you the heartache it brings us to have to leave all of you guys. Spending time with my parents has always been one of my favorite things in the world and when I met Juliet's family and they took me in with such kindness and warmth it was an amazing feeling. I don't have any siblings so to be able to spend time with @angiesimms @iamtommysimms as well my in laws Natalie and @jeffsimms, Tommy's beautiful children and the entire Simms family is an experience I truly cherish. When I was younger I thought the best thing in life would be to just be on a stage singing...as I get older and things change the moments I spend laughing with my family, going to a game with my parents and holding my wife are the ones I cherish the most. From us to you, happy new year. -Andy

Tonight I'm rooting for my dads favorite team & my second favorite football franchise. Growing up my father who was born and raised in Milwaukee always instilled in me a love of the Green and Gold and visiting Lambeau field as a kid is one of my favorite memories. While I am a Cincinnati kid and my love of the @bengals is undeniable, watching Brett Favre, Antonio Freeman, Ahman Green, Gilbert Brown and many others are some of my best childhood sports moments that I can remember. I will always support them as my NFC team and wait for the dream Super Bowl of Pack V Bengals. Right now both teams are struggling but we are hoping to see a win tonight! In the photo it's little me on the left, my dad in the center and my cousin Alex on the right! #conniegomper #gopackgo

In a time where we as people will continue to work to shatter that glass ceiling of equality I wanted to share this photo of my grandmother in the 1940's. She worked in the field of chemistry in a time where it was unheard of for women to have professional careers in science. In the coming days, months, weeks and years it will be natural for many of us to feel the overwhelming sense of fear, disappointment and panic for what is a perceived lack of empathy, compassion and understanding around us. A strong urge and sense that we don't know each other the way we thought we did as a nation. I cannot speak to the incredible difficulty that so many women, minority communities, LGBT and so many subjugated groups of people have faced and continue to face day in and day out but I can say that I support you, I love you and I will continue to hope for and dream of the day that our nation is healed. Regardless of your political or social beliefs always remember that we as a people can only advance with love and understanding and that the hate that so many cling to as a viable means of governing will only stand to decay our culture, our passion and our love. 70 years ago Anna Flanders was told women couldn't do what a man can do and today it can sometimes feel like we take steps backward from time to time but we HAVE to be diligent as a culture to remember the responsibility we have to our youth to show them that we are all equals and we are all stronger together. The night is always darkest before the dawn and while we are currently a nation that feels divided I refuse to give in to the pessimism and fear. I am an American and I believe in ALL of us.
On a lighter note here's a flashback to the #AndyBLACK tour in Japan a few months ago. We had so much fun exploring the train stations in Tokyo on our way to Osaka☺️ Seriously though we appreciate all of the support and love you guys give us through everything and again it's important to remember that all of us as people have things we regret. Moments that we look back on and wish we could have done differently. What's important is to remember that you have the chance every day to strive to become a better person and make your own tomorrow. Let's all do our best in the future to treat each other with kindness and compassion and learn from mistakes❤️ ps spot the @mryanni10 in this one #whenIwasblondeforamonth
You may have read online that my wife and I had a scary & traumatic experience on our return flight from TN this weekend. We are currently home and safe and trying to emotionally recover from all of this.The unfortunate event itself compounded with online stories & videos show an isolated but difficult moment for my wife & I encourage you to read her statement on her IG @thejulietsimms regarding the situation as I feel it is best that any information comes from her directly. Many of you know that I recently decided to live entirely sober. In the past I struggled with the concept of alcohol and my own personal demons and so a year ago I decided it was time to move on from it & start down the path to sobriety. I believe alcohol is one of the most poisonous & volatile substances we as a society have at our disposal & that it can truly hurt & affect people in the most negative way. My wife no longer drinks but due in large part to a myriad of recent upsets including some tragic family news she became intoxicated during the flight and was left confused, blacked out & disoriented. She said things that are not true and are in no way her or a part of her character and despite rumors or conjecture I will definitively state that we have a happy and harmonious marriage. It is my duty as her husband to make sure everyone is aware of how much I love her, how kind and strong she is and her resolve to learn from this & for both of us to move forward as a healthy, loving family. Thank you to every one of you who have stood by our side in this time of pain and we vow to continue to be there for anyone who needs it. Remember that no one is perfect, we all fall down sometimes. What matters is that we get back up stronger. Lastly, we're sorry that this was brought to your attention and if it in any way pulled you from real issues in the world, your family etc. I think we can all agree our time is better spent trying to help one another rather than tear each other down for moments of weakness or mistakes. Please remember that the greatest way we can see one another for what we truly are is with kindness, empathy & compassion. Everything else will only block the light of humanity.
We are headed to Knoxville for the Fanboy Expo that we are guests at this weekend! I can't wait to meet everyone there! #whenbleachdestroysyourhairstartoveragain #everyoneshoulddoitonce #hashtagsaboutshavedhead 😂 #whodeyuk
