Bullet For My Valentine are returning to North America for their first headlining tour in five years.
The band will return Stateside in October for a month-long trek with support from Of Mice & Men and Vended, featuring the sons of Slipknot’s Corey Taylor and Shawn “Clown” Crahan. The tour starts October 8th in Montreal and wraps up November 10th in Orlando, Florida.
“Attention please!! So after 5 long years we’re finally heading back to the USA and Canada for a proper headline tour!! We cannot wait to play and see you all again, it’s been far too long,” the band said in a statement. “We’re gonna be bringing our old friends in Of Mice & Men and heavy metal upstarts Vended along for the ride so get ready for some serious mosh pit action!! Make sure you pick up your tickets fast as we’re expecting them to fly out. VIP packages are also gonna be available on this tour for the first time in years. More info to follow. See ya there.”

In a recent interview with Mike James Rock Show, guitarist Michael “Padge” Paget talked about the band’s plans in the coming months:
“We’ve got a few more — 10 or 11 more — summer festivals out in Europe to play over the summer. Then we have a little break in, sort of, August-September, and we head out to America for a month or five, six weeks to do a headline run up there. I’m not too sure what’s gonna happen at the end of the year, if there’s anything in there yet. And then we’re gonna stop [touring] and start writing again. So ’24 we’ll be writing an album. And then 2025 we’ll be back. [2025 is] an anniversary of something big,” apparently alluding to the fact that 2025 will mark the 20th anniversary of [our] debut album, The Poison.”
Bullet For My Valentine recently teamed up with Pendulum for new collab single “Halo.” The band released a deluxe version of their latest self-titled album last year.
