Bullet For My Valentine To Tour With Black Tide

Bullet For My Valentine

I have two problems with this tour. First, Black Tide. Yes, its cool that they’re embryos and they can shred like criminals, but come on: I listened to their album, and it was OK. Not nearly worth the scads of hoopla it received. You’re still in school, dudes. Keep your head in those books, not in the studio. Second, Bullet For My Valentine.

I know a ton of people kiss this band’s ass for some reason, but I don’t get it. They suck. I don’t understand why kids eat this shit up but its like the old Avenged Sevenfold, only British. And the dudes in that band are right wankers. I got a chance to chill with them after they opened for Guns N’ Roses a few years back and they were cockier than a SoHo bathhouse circa 1968. Undeservedly so, if you ask me. They were mocking Guns, which, I mean, we all do. But who opens for a band and then knocks them, other than CKY?

OK, full disclosure. I never liked these guys and told them as much when I saw them. I said, “No offense, but I think you’re the worst thing to happen to this genre since The Darkness.” They respected and probably expected my opinion. But then, one of these fancies starts flirting with this girl who, literally a minute before, I had run into — a high school crush not seen since I was a senior. We almost kissed in that minute (she was fucking tanked and I was married), but didn’t. Then, this dude ended up walking off with her. But that incident does not affect my opinion of them. Hell, I’d let Overcast tag-team my girlfriend, if they wanted to.

I know a bunch of you probably dig this band, but trust me: There are so many other bands out there you could be listening to, you just don’t know it. You think BFMV is as hard as it gets. But you’re wrong. Dead wrong, son. Now get off my lawn. Here’s the dates for their North American tour which starts in September with Escape The Fate and Drive A. And Black Tide.
