Bullet For My Valentine have announced a run of European tour dates for later this year.

The band have lined up a total of 12 winter dates, with the shows scheduled in support of the band’s upcoming sixth studio album Gravity, which will launch on June 29 via Search And Destroy/Spinefarm Records.

They’ll be joined by special guests Of Mice & Men and tickets will go on sale on Friday, May 4.

Earlier this week, Bullet For My Valentine released a video for their new track Over It, with the band’s Matt Tuck previously saying that they approached songwriting differently for the follow-up to 2015’s Venom.

He added: “I think initially it’s going to take a lot of people by surprise by the way it sounds and the instrumentation we’ve incorporated into it this time.

“But I think as soon as the dust settles and people get to live with it… it’s a corker. It rocks… it sounds incredible. It sonically sounds better than anything we’ve ever done.”

The band will kick off their first run of 2018 tour dates with a set at Jacksonville’s Welcome To Rockville this weekend. They’ll then return to Europe for further shows, including a set at the UK’s Download festival before their winter concerts.
