Bullet For My Valentine And Trivium Announce 2025 UK Tour

After dropping some pretty big hints, Bullet For My Valentine and Trivium have announced a joint 2025 tour dubbed “The Poisoned Ascendancy Tour.”

The two bands will be celebrating the 20th anniversaries of their respective albums The Poison and Ascendancy by playing the records in full. The trek kicks off in Cardiff on January 26th and will wrap up in London on February 1st. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 1st at 10 AM local time.

“I honestly can’t believe it’s been 20 years since the release of The Poison, and what an incredible 20 years it’s been,” says Bullet frontman Matt Tuck. “I feel so proud of what we’ve achieved as a band in the last two decades and it all started with that debut album.

“The Poison is such an important part of our lives musically and personally and we know the massive impact it had on the metal world on a global level. This tour will be made even more special as our brothers in Trivium are also joining us on the road to celebrate and play in its entirety their stunning album Ascendancy.”

“Bullet For My Valentine’s The Poison and Trivium’s Ascendancy are two records whose influence can be heard to this day, in the DNA of modern metal,” continues Trivium’s Matt Heafy.

“It’s incredible to think of the impact the albums had when they came out in 2005. They were both like bolts of lightning. Both bands grew up independently of each other in different countries and separately from any movement or scene but both shared a common love of melodic heavy metal at the core; and both had similar meteoric rises right out of the gate.

“Trivium and BFMV were in such whirlwinds when our respective albums came out that we each never truly got to play together or sit back and celebrate during the maelstrom of constant touring, recording and globetrotting.

“But that’s what this anniversary tour is. It’s a celebration by the bands to the fans of an important era, and most importantly it’s an invitation to fans come and have an epic night with us and sing and rage and celebrate the awesome power of the music.”
