BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE Cancels South African Shows

Welsh metallers BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE have cancelled their previously announced appearances at the My Coke Festival 2009 in South Africa in April. The band was due to perform in Johannesburg on April 10 and in Cape Town on April 13 as part of a lineup including OASIS and SNOW PATROL.

BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE will remain in the U.K. to focus on its recording commitments. The band is currently in the studio demoing new material for its upcoming third album at home in Wales with producer Don Gilmore (LINKIN PARK, LACUNA COIL).

Commented guitarist/vocalist Matt Tuck: "We’re absolutely gutted to have to cancel these shows. We were proper looking forward to it, but we are really getting stuck in with writing new songs and we have busy schedule to get everything prepared for recording the new album, which we are all really excited about! So we apologize to our fans in South Africa, but we promise we'll be back!"
