Tour de Force

Bullet for My Valentine/Asking Alexandria “British Invasion Tour” Makes Me Proud to be an American


crossing-the-delaware-web-2Rarely do I feel patriotic, let alone jingoistic; maybe it’s because my family has been in this country for less than sixty years, or maybe it’s just because I’m not a simpleton. But I must admit: nothing has ever made me prouder to be an American than the announcement that, starting in February, Bullet for My Valentine and Asking Alexandria are going to co-headline “The British Invasion Tour.” Talk about a harsh reminder of the reasons for the American Revolution.

The only upside I can see to this existence of this tour is an educational one. I know that it can sometimes be a struggle for teachers to “make history come alive” for students, to make events long past feel relevant to contemporary young minds; surely, a field trip to see these two piss-poor excuses for rock bands would illustrate the necessity of the Colonies’ violent revolt with vivid immediacy.

And so, for all you teachers out there, dates are below, via Lambgoat. Go book those school buses and print up those permission slips! The tour will also feature”special guests,” who I assume will also be British and terrible. Austin Dickinson’s new band, perhaps?
