Bullet For My Valentine have had to cancel their headlining appearance at Hammerfest due to recording commitments.

They have however been added to the line up for Sonisphere.

Front man Matt Tuck commented, "We are really sorry to not be playing Hammerfest and apologise to fans. Hopefully, playing the very first Sonisphere will compensate. We'll throw everything at it, you have to when you're alongside such amazing bands at such a historic rock venue. We can't wait, it will be a brilliant homecoming.”

The historic venue in question is Knebworth, with Metallica, Linkin Park, Lamb of God, Mastodon, Machine Head, Alice in Chains and Thin Lizzy all playing.

Tickets, including camping, are on sale now.
