Canadian punkers Billy Talent will headline the Rock Sound Riot show at O2 Academy Bristol this winter.
To celebrate the release of the band’s fifth studio album Dead Silence, Rock Sound have announced that Billy Talent will be headlining their Rock Sound Riot tour this winter.
Speaking of the announcement, Rock Sound editor Ben Patashnik said: “It’s awesome to be working with Billy Talent, a band all at Rock Sound has loved for years, and it’s genuinely thrilling to be taking this step up into massive venues. Can’t wait for November!”
The Canadian punk-rockers have already had an incredibly busy year, with the band about to hit the UK for two very intimate and special shows in London and Edinburgh.
They’ll then perform at the Reading and Leeds Festivals at the end of this month, before making their way back for the Rock Sound Riot tour.
Billy Talent has made two multi-platinum records in Canada, and continues to expand their success overseas.
The first single from Dead Silence, titled Viking Death March, was released in May and peaked at number three on the Canadian rock/alternative charts.
The second single, Surprise, Surprise was released on August 7.
Billy Talent and the Rock Sound Riot tour hit O2 Academy Bristol on November 19, 2012. Tickets are on sale now.
