Tour Wars: Kerrang! 2013 Versus Rock Sound Riot

In case you missed it earlier today, UK’s leading rock rag Kerrang! revealed the line-up for their 2013 tour – and, as editor James McMahon expected, it “broke the internet”. Somewhat controversially, the music magazine has booked Black Veil Brides to headline a bill featuring recently reunited Chiodos, pop-punkers Tonight Alive and death pop band Fearless Vampire Killers.

Speaking about the line-up, McMahon boasted that “This is the strongest tour we’ve ever had”, while headlining front man Andy Biersack gushed “It’s really cool to be a part of something that has so much history that its reputation has crossed the Atlantic.”

However while the internet was busy breaking because of both Black Veil Brides’ fans and haters, alternative music fans may have missed another exciting British magazine tour announcement – Don Broco‘s addition to the Rock Sound Riot tour, which will see them open for AWOLNATION and Billy Talent next month.

So, the question is who will you be supporting – the divisive Black Veil Brides or the Bedford boys Don Broco? Or will you be attending both?

You can watch the newest videos from both newly announced acts and decide for yourself.


Which line-up do you prefer – Kerrang!’s or Rock Sound’s?
