Bullets For My Valentine announce date at Nottingham Motorpoint Arena
Metal veterans Bullet For My Valentine have announced a UK arena tour to coincide with the release of their self-titled seventh album.
The tour kicks off at Nottingham’s Motorpoint Arena on October 31 this year.
The Bullet For My Valentine album, released on October 22, is described as their heaviest, fiercest release so far.
“This is the beginning of Bullet 2.0,” says vocalist and lead guitarist Matt Tuck.
“It signifies where we are right now. The music is fresh, it’s aggressive, it’s more visceral and passionate than it’s ever been.
“I think this is a far more aggressive, intense part of Bullet For My Valentine. It’s always been there, I’ve just never opened the floodgates on it. I want to take people’s heads off, in a metaphorical way.”
“I think it’s the most ferocious side of Bullet For My Valentine that I’ve ever known,” says lead guitarist Michael “Padge” Paget.
“It’s time for us to put out a really angry, heavy, aggressive record. I just can’t wait to grimace on stage!"
Since forming in 1998, Bullet For My Valentine have become one of the biggest bands in metal, selling more than 3m albums worldwide.
They have been crowned Best British Band at the Kerrang! Awards three years in a row, and also awarded for best single, best live band and best British newcomer.
Bullet For My Valentine follows the success of their last album, 2018’s Gravity, which saw the band play their biggest shows to date, including a UK arena tour and a huge show at London’s Alexandra Palace.
