In a decision that will no doubt split opinion firmly down the middle, American shock rock band The Black Veil Brides have been announced to headline the 2013 installment of the annual Kerrang tour. Having recently played the UK’s Download Festival, BVB will be returning to put on a full show across the UK on the Kerrang Tour.
They’ll be joined on the 2013 Kerrang Tour by Michigan’s finest post hardcore collective Chiodos, as well Australia’s latest musical export, the pop punk band Tonight Alive. Rounding off the lineup and flying the flag for the UK are the Fearless Vampire Killers.
The tour contains eleven shows in total, kicking off at Cardiff University on the third of February 2013 and finishing up twelve days later at London’s Brixton Academy. Full details are below:
