Following the success of the 2010 tour, which featured headliners Good Charlotte and support from Four Year Strong, Framing Hanley and The Wonder Years, Kerrang! have gone the extra mile to create a double headline event giving fans even more bang for their buck. Next February, there’s the chance to see two of the pop punk scenes’ kingpins on the same night under one roof. Joining the co-headliners are Letlive, one of the hottest rising acts on the international live circuit and rising UK stars While She Sleeps.

After a four-year break from the studio, Sum 41 crashed back onto the scene with Screaming Bloody Murder last year. The more personal direction taken by frontman Deryck Whibley since his divorce from pop rock starlet Avril Lavigne has produced some of the Ontario pop punks’ most powerful material to date, which easily sits alongside classic anthems like In Too Deep, Motivation, Still Waiting and Fat Lip.

Progressive hardcore quintet Letlive are one of the bands to watch in 2012. Off the back of the critical acclaim of their album Fake History, the Los Angeles quintet are steadily earning a reputation as one of the best live bands in the world right now. Frontman Jason Aalon Butler was recently voted number one in a list of Kerrang!’s top 50 greatest rock stars in the world today – catch them live to see why.

Opening each night are Sheffield post-hardcore five-piece While She Sleeps. Fresh from a headline tour with support from Bury Tomorrow and Feed The Rhino, this Steel City quintet are ones to watch. Their mini-album, The North Stands For Nothing, boasts eight pulverising reasons why they’re an exciting addition to the bill and Kerrang! can’t wait to see them kick off the show each night.

Editor of Kerrang!, James McMahon says, “Everyone at Kerrang! prides themselves on the fact that our tours are always a heap load of fun, but this year’s tour really does offer something for all rock fans – you’ve got punk, you’ve got pop punk, you’ve got hardcore, you’ve got metal. It’s a reflection of the broad church you’ll find in the magazine’s pages week in, week out. See you in the pit!”
