During their U.S. tour earlier this year, the band received overwhelming critical acclaim: “The Welsh rockers melted faces with speedy riffs and had fans crowd surfing their hearts out,” raved Loudwire this past April at the sold out concert at New York’s Roseland Ballroom.

Comments Matt Tuck of Bullet for My Valentine about the first run U.S dates:  “This whole tour has been a highlight, it’s probably been the most successful, enjoyable tour we’ve ever done in America, so to pick one would be an insult to the rest of the tour, it’s been amazing.”   On touring with Black Veil Brides, the singer commented: “It’s going to be a great tour. They’re a young band, They’ve got a great buzz going on about them, especially over here in the states, so it’ll be interesting to see how the Bullet fans take to the guys.”

Bullet For My Valentine‘s fourth studio album TEMPER TEMPER  (RCA Records) released earlier this year is a massive hard-rocking smash,  debuting at #1 on the Hard Music Albums chart,  #4 on the Alternative Albums chart, #5 on the Rock Albums chart, and #13 on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart. The band recently shot a brand new video for their new single “Breaking Point” while in Dallas during the first leg of the HardDrive Live tour directed by Adam Rothlein. Click here to watch it nowProduced by Don Gilmore (Linkin Park / Pearl Jam)their new album TEMPER TEMPER has received tremendous critical acclaim:  Revolver writes “Matt Tuck & Co. unleash pure rock fury,”Noiscreep states “UK Metallers Make Triumphant Return” and ” USA Today raves “This Welsh band rose through the modern metal ranks, balancing old-school shredding with metalcore aggression. The group’s fourth album hits like a shot through the heart but still can shift from guttural growls to adamantine harmonies in seconds.”  Artist Direct glows in a 5 out of 5 star review: “Bullet For My Valentine are at the top of their own game …they’re destined to take over the entire genre with this one… (the album) expertly fuses the quartet’s signature tight, technical thrash with the biggest hooks of their career.”  And Loudwire continues: Not only will this album truly rock you, it also feels tailor-made for the stage.”

About Black Veil Brides: Black Veil Brides are riding the success of their third full-length album, Wretched And Divine: The Story Of The Wild Ones, released via Lava Records/Republic Records and landed at #7 on the Billboard 200 selling over 42,000 copies its first week.
