Welsh heavy metal band Bullet For My Valentine, who hail from Bridgend, are performing a gig at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff tomorrow night, Friday, December 6.

The band members are Matthew Tuck – vocals, with, Michael Paget, Michael Thomas , Jason James and Nick Crandle.

Bullet For My Valentine has spent most of the past two years playing around the world with a massive UK, European, US and worldwide tours, sharing the stage with Guns N Roses, Metallica and Iron Maiden, playing the Main Stage at just about every rock festival on the planet.

Ttheir 2006 debut album The Poison - an album hailed by one national newspaper as "One of the finest debut albums in rock history" - has sold more than one-million copies worldwide – 350,000 in the U. alone – a rare achievement for an emerging band.

Back home, Bullet For My Valentine has graced the covers of the UK’s Kerrang!, Rock Sound, and Metal Hammer. They won Metal Hammer’s 2006 “Golden God Award” for Best British Band, and the 2006 Kerrang! Award for “Best UK Single” for their track “Tears Don’t Fall.”

The Poison generated the hit singles “Tears Don’t Fall” and “All These Things I Hate (Revolve Around Me),” with the video for “All These Things I Hate” going to the number one spot on MTV2. The band has toured North America three times, and in early 2007, they sold out their first headline trek.

And tomorrow they plan to raise the roof at the Motorpoint arena. They will be headlining the gig with support from Young Guns and Asking Alexandria. Doors open 6pm with the concert starting at 7pm. Tickets available from the box office on 02920 224488.
