BFMV detail their biggest UK tour

Bullet For My Valentine have announced their biggest-ever tour of the UK and Ireland.

The Welsh outfit just confirmed Jamie Mathias as their latest member, following the departure of bassist Jay James in February. And they’ve confirmed fifth album Venom will be released on August 14.

Frontman Matt Tuck said of No Way Out, the first track to appear: “To write it, I had to put myself into a very dark place – a place I hadn’t been to for a while mentally.

“It’s one of the heaviest tracks we’ve ever recorded, musically and lyrically. I’ve lived with it for a while now, but every time I hear it, it gives me chills.”

BFMV will headline Camden Rocks in London on May 30.
