First Soundwave 2016 Act Announced

It’s official: the weather’s getting warmer and we’ve officially hit Soundwave Festival announcement season. There’s nothing to get the blood pumping on a Friday morning like news of the first official band to be added to the line-up, and the team at Soundwave have pulled out a stadium-sized act for the occasion. Welsh metallers Bullet For My Valentine have secured their place on next year’s festival bill, with the news coming the same day their brutal new slab, Venom, is unleashed into the world.

Following reports earlier in the year from festival head AJ Maddah, Bullet For My Valentine look set to join previously named locals Violent Soho and Northlane at the annual summer fest, with the full line-up likely to drop in three weeks.

Albeit a month earlier than usual, 2016 will also see Soundwave returning to its regular one-day format, hitting Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne this coming January. Let the drip feeding commence.

Head to soundwavefestival.com for more info.

Venom is out today through Sony/RCA.
