WELSH band Bullet For My Valentine have been added to the Sonisphere line-up at Knebworth House.

The Bridgend four-piece were added to the two-day rock festival this morning.

This will be the metalcore group's only UK festival this year after cancelling their appearance at Hammerfest in April due to recording commitments.

Metallica and Linkin Park will headline the rock event at Knebworth on August 1-2.

Bullet For My Valentine lead singer Matt Tuck said: "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.”

Others confirmed for Sonisphere at Knebworth include Alice in Chains, Thin Lizzy and Lamb of God.
