Bullet For My Valentine & Trivium announce 2025 tour

Author Flavia Andrade - 23.2.2024

Bullet For My Valentine and Trivium have revealed a huge co-headlining arena tour at a press conference streamed live from London’s Sanctum Hotel. “The Poisoned Ascendancy” tour 2025 will see both bands celebrating the 20th anniversary of iconic albums “The Poison” and “Ascendancy,” playing them in full. The first dates announced will take place in the U.K.

Bullet For My Valentine frontman Matt Tuck says:

I honestly can’t believe it’s been 20 years since the release of ‘The Poison’, and what an incredible 20 years it’s been. I feel so proud of what we’ve achieved as a band in the last two decades and it all started with that debut album. ‘The Poison’ is such an important part of our lives musically and personally and we know the massive impact it had on the metal world on a global level. This tour will be made even more special as our brothers in Trivium are also joining us on the road to celebrate and play in its entirety their stunning album ‘Ascendancy’.

Trivium frontman Matt Heafy shares:

Bullet For My Valentine‘s ‘The Poison’ and Trivium‘s ‘Ascendancy’ are two records whose influence can be heard to this day — in the DNA of modern metal. It’s incredible to think of the impact the albums had when they came out in 2005. They were both like bolts of lightning. Both bands grew up independently of each other in different countries and separately from any movement or scene but both shared a common love of melodic heavy metal at the core; and both had similar meteoric rises right out of the gate.

Trivium and BFMV were in such whirlwinds when our respective albums came out that we each never truly got to play together or sit back and celebrate during the maelstrom of constant touring, recording and globetrotting. But that’s what this anniversary tour is. It’s a celebration by the bands to the fans of an important era, and most importantly it’s an invitation to fans come and have an epic night with us and sing and rage and celebrate the awesome power of the music.

Tuck concludes:

This is going to be the metal tour of 2025. Bullet For My Valentine and Trivium ‘The Poisoned Ascendancy’ World Tour 2025. Celebrating the 20th anniversary of both albums and playing them in their entirety. Get excited people, it’s going to be special and we can’t wait to celebrate with you all.
