THIS SHOW IS NOW SOLD OUT. Bullet For My Valentine cite their main objective as writing rock songs the way rock songs used to be written. Aspiring to a love of acts such as Iron Maiden and Metallica, and an equal hatred of indie-rock, the South-Wales group have enjoyed an upward curve perpetrating their own brand of anthemic rock ballads.
The groundswell of interest in country music in the UK is now unstoppable. One of the acts helping to make country cooler than ever on this side of the atlantic aren’t from Tennessee or Texas, they’re from Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire. They look and sound great, step forward, The Shires.

Hailing from the London satellite town of Watford, Lower Than Atlantis were formed in 2007 by Mike Duce (lead vocals, rhythm guitar) and Ben Sansom (lead guitar, backing vocals), whose shared love of bands such as Biffy Clyro, NoFX, and blink-182 would go on to inspire the group's early sound.
