Bullet for My Valentine + Asking Alexandria Reveal Second Leg of ‘British Invasion’ Tour
Bullet for My Valentine and Asking Alexandria are having such a good time on the “British Invasion” tour they’ve decided to do it all over again. This time, the two bands will primarily hitting the Eastern and Midwestern U.S., with a number of festival dates thrown in for good measure.
While She Sleeps, who are opening their current leg, will exit the bill, allowing for Cane Hill to get a shot at the opening slot. The new tour leg kicks off April 30 at the Welcome to Rockville Festival in Jacksonville, Fla., and continues through a May 29 finale at the River City Rockfest in San Antonio, Texas.
In between the festival-bookended dates, the acts will also take the stage at such spring festival events as Carolina Rebellion, Rock on the Range and Rocklahoma. See the full itinerary below.
In a statement, Bullet for My Valentine’s Matt Tuck revealed, “Attention Army of Noise U.S.! We haven’t even left your country yet, but we’re super excited to announce that we’re coming back to the U.S this May for another run of shows on our Venom World Tour 15/16. We’re gonna be hitting a ton of places we couldn’t get to this time around so make sure you get yourself our new BFMV App to check and see if we’re coming to a town near you. Thank you and we’ll see you all very soon.”
Speaking with Asking Alexandria’s Ben Bruce prior to the current “British Invasion” tour leg, he stated, “we’re really, really excited about this tour because we’ve been friends with both of those band for years now. So it’s pretty much going to be like summer camps with your best friends. You know what I mean? You’re going to get to go out there, we’ll already know each other, like I said. So it’s not going to be awkward. It’s just going to be a month of drinking with your buddies and you’re going to play some awesome shows.”
