Bullet For My Valentine have been confirmed as headlining this year’s Camden Rocks festival.
The news has been kept under wraps until now, with rumours of a secret headliner circulating for some time. The Welsh metallers will play their set at Camden’s Electric Ballroom on the 30th of May.
Says BFMV frontman Matt Tuck: “We wanted to create a shit-storm, really! Hopefully it’ll be the perfect start to the album cycle and we can play some new songs and make a cool event out of it. The festival itself has a good vibe anyway, but with us being there at such late notice… It’s going to be chaos.”
In the meantime, the band have also announced a mammoth UK tour for later this year. You can check out the confirmed dates below.
Bullet For My Valentine’s new album, Venom, is due for release on the 14th of August. The band recently shared a lyric video for new track “No Way Out” and confirmed that Jamie Mathias has joined the band as bassist, replacing the departing Jay James.
“It wasn’t easy revisiting some very dark places to come up with lyrical content for this one,” says Tuck, “but once I knew where it was heading and I was comfortable with letting certain things out – all hell broke loose. It’s easily the most aggressive record we’ve ever done and lyrically it will no doubt touch a nerve with a lot of people that listen to it. I cannot express enough how proud I am of it, and can’t wait for everyone out there to hear it too. We’ve reinvented who we are and are ready to take on the world once more.”
