BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE Reschedules Remainder Of U.K. Tour, Cancels U.S. Dates

Welsh metalcore band BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE has been forced to cancel the remaining dates on its current sold-out U.K. tour as well as a string of U.S. dates that were to follow throughout December. With a heavy heart, singer and frontman Matt Tuck has had to take a break due to laryngitis brought on from a throat infection and fatigue.

Commented Tuck: "To all our Stateside friends, I am truly sorry we will not be there in December as planned to see you guys. Me and the boys are gutted just as much as you are, but the word is I've been signed off by my doctors over here who have told me I need to rest up if I want to keep on singing the way I do in the future, and of course that's what I want to do. Sorry to disappoint you, but please rest assured we WILL be back, and back with a vengeance, in 2007. Hope y'all have a great Thanksgiving, see you soon."

All of the U.K. dates have however been rescheduled to January, apart from Brighton, where refunds for the show will be available from the point of purchase. The band did everything it could do reschedule this show as well but there was unfortunately just no venue availability. They will return to Brighton later in 2007.

Rescheduled U.K. dates are as follows:

Jan. 03 - Newcastle Academy
Jan. 04 - Manchester Apollo
Jan. 05 - Birmingham Academy
Jan. 07 - Cardiff University
Jan. 08 - Hammersmith Apollo

BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE will also make a return to Edinburgh in Scotland in the very near future to make up for the shortened set the band were forced to play due to Matt's fading lung power this week. The band will be coming back to the U.S. in early 2007, around the time they also return to the studio to record the follow-up to "The Poison", which has sold 136,000 copies in the United States so far, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE recently won Yahoo! Music's "Who's Next?" competition. You can now view a BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE performance at the Yahoo! studios in Los Angeles and an interview with the band at this location (free registration required).

BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE's "The Poison - Live At Brixton" DVD will be released in the U.S. on December 19 via Trustkill. The disc, which was issued in Europe on Oct. 30, captures the band's sold-out show in front of over 4,000 people at London's legendary Brixton Academy on January 28, 2006 (filmed with over 15 cameras), along with over an hour of bonus material, including the band's videos so far, EPKs and documentaries edited to songs from both "The Poison" and the "Hand Of Blood" EP, plus a behind-the-scenes look at the band performing at the Download Festival and the Metal Hammer Awards in the U.K. this summer.
