Bullet For My Valentine to headline OppiKoppi

Written by 

The Oppikoppi organisers have announced that Bullet For My Valentine will make their South African debut at OppiKoppi 18 Sweet\Thing, which will take place from August 9 to 11. Additional South African tour dates will be announced shortly.

 

The band comprises lead singer & rhythm guitarist Matthew Tuck, drummer Michael 'Moose' Thomas, lead guitarist & backing vocalist Michael 'Padge' Paget and bassist & backing vocalist Jason 'Jay' James. The group, named Best British Band in 2008, 2009 and 2010 by metal magazine Kerrang!, formed 10 years ago in their hometown of Bridgend as Jeff Killed John, covering Metallica and Nirvana songs. Citing Metallica, Iron Maiden and Slayer as influence they found their niche in 2002 on signing a five album deal with Sony BMG dropping The Poison in 2005, Scream Aim Fire in 2007 and Fever in 2010.
