The announcement was made on Billboard.

Having hosted the Alternative Press Music Awards (APMAs) for two years, All Time Low’s Alex Gaskarth and Jack Barakat have passed the torch to Black Veil Brides’ Andy Biersack.

“I am so honoured to be hosting this year’s fourth annual APMAs. I’ve attended every APMAs, and I’ve been fortunate to have a favourite moment every year. As host, I want to make people feel happy and create favourite moments for them, too. I want them to be stoked, whether they are attending the event or watching it from their homes.” – Andy Biersack

The ceremony will be held in Cleveland, Ohio on July 17th – full details coming soon.
