Bullet For My Valentine Announce New Touring Plans

Trustkill Records, indie rock powerhouse label, have announced their first-ever package tour, to be called the Trustkill Takeover our. The North American trek, which will take place in May, will feature the U.K.'s hottest export BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE on headlining duty. The Wales-based band are currently wrapping up a successful U.S. run on the ROB ZOMBIE/LACUNA COIL tour. BULLET fever, which is in full swing through Europe, sees the band securing the honored spot of opening for GUNS N' ROSES and METALLICA on select European shows. Speaking on the upcoming Trustkill Takeover run, frontman Matt Tuck says, "I'm completely stoked on our first real headlining tour of the States. It's a real chance to show everyone what BULLET is made of." Appearing in the middle slot is the Detroit's WALLS OF JERICHO, who have just been confirmed for the second stage at this year's Ozzfest. Fronted by Candace Kucsulain and powered by the thrash-bred guitar team of Mike Hasty and Chris Rawson, WALLS OF JERICHO recently hunkered down in Cleveland with producer Ben Schigel (CHIMAIRA, ZAO, RINGWORM) to record their upcoming album, "With Devils Amongst Us All", to be released this summer. Candace Kucsulain confirmed that they will be perfoming four or five new songs from the upcoming album per night and Mike Hasty says of the new material, "It's definitely the most varied music we've ever written and it's a lot more anthemic whereas our older material was more about aggression than composition."


Rochester, NY's ROSES ARE RED, who are opening the tour are currently out with MATCHBOOK ROMANCE and SILVERSTEIN on this year's edition of the Take Action Tour. The group recently finished recording their second full-length, "What Became Of Me" with Brian McTiernan (THRICE, CAVE IN, CIRCA SURVIVE), to be released this June.

Regarding the new songs vocalist Vincent Minervino says, "I think people who like our band now will be very pleased with the direction we’ve taken. And I also think people who didn’t care about our music before will take notice of the new album. We have grown up as people and songwriters."

Commenting the upcoming tour, Trustkill label President Josh Grabelle says, "We're super-stoked to finally package our bands together, something we've been trying for a while now. The timing just clicked with this lineup. With ROSES ARE RED to rock people's socks off and WALLS OF JERICHO to get kids' hearts racing, it just leaves the stage to be shredded when our Welsh boys BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE hit the stage. Expect great things from all three of these bands in 2006!"

How about ya shove ya death metal or black metal up ya asses.

I hate people that tend to insult fashion-core bands because they don't like their trend.

Metalcore is the genre that's now bein listened to.
So you don't like it.
Then to stick to your old death metal/black metal crappp.


Power metal is nice =]
SOME Death metal is nice.

Not that f-in black metal talkin about Cannibals and pipin' corpses.
It's NOT music when you just do inhales and screeches in the mic and ONLY use the damn double petal and THINK its music!

ugh.
Gets me mad.

DOn't judge other people's taste in music when you have crappy one yourself.

Hey d***k face I'm a GIRL.

Ok.
Don't be mad because I have an opinion about your gay a$$ music.
And what does my family and friends have to do with music. d*** head.

What's so good about black metal..
Is it the massive beatin of cymbols and the petals ONLY.
and you call that music??!

... Plus. I don't listen to emo music.
I listen to hardcore...and metal.
Just NOT black metal.

THREE GOOD metal bands are (includin power metal, industrial death metal) would be Chiamara, Dragonforce, and The Berzerker.

Blow on my d***. And shove your Dimmu Borgir, morbid angel music up your ass.


Metalcore bands I listen to are Atreyu and Bullet for My Valentine. Cause we ALL damn well know that they have catchy songs. So suck on my kielbasa.
Metalcore=not the best

But they don't suck as ya make them see. It gets me really tight when f-in ignorant kids come talkin sh** about bands that they probably only heard SINGLES from.
Stop bein narrow minded.

And cursin at me doesn't really prove your argument about why death metal/ black metal is better.

LMFAO!!


Well don't judge my taste of music without actually recognizin the flaws in ya taste.
I'm realistic and i'll tell you that metalcore is sometimes gay.
But I think hardcore is one the best.

And I'm not talkin about that fake hardcore.
I'm talking about that real hardcore not that post hardcore.
Type of music that has solos on top of breakdowns. So learn GOOD music.

dudes, its only music, chill. I dont think BFMV are a bad band but they aren't my usual band (Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Motorhead, Sabbath). I tend to choose this band, mainly because the usual metalcore band is from the US, and Bullet's main root in the instrument playing is the old british heavy metal bands. I prefer Bullet to Trivium

Well the reason why I started critizin what they listen to is because they are talkin crap about the music I listen to.

I don't like Trivium.. They bore me.

Argh.

I really disagree with the EMO term due to the fact its not a real word, and it was originally used to describe those indie rock bands back in the 80s, and from what I've read (which is f**k loads) its not a true definition or a true defined music genre (in my opinion). How on earth is EMO a true genre/culture when simply its been tagged on pop punk, post-hardcore and METALcore bands? When hard rock music appeared, we didn't have brass bands, folk bands and country bands did we? NO, they were all hard rock. Thats why I find emo, the most stupidest word ever.

I like Bullet's music, the guitar players are awesome, and they have some cool riffs. They are paying some homage to the old school british heavy metal bands that influenced. The vocalist? I'll let him off cuz he's a WELSHman and he can't help it lol. But Im gonna stick by this band because I hate it when american listeners slam british bands. And the american audience sucks for most british bands and the american bands that come to the UK grab all the f**kin glory. Sorry dudes... later
