Story by Jack Foley

KERRANG! has announced that the Kerrang! Relentless Energy Tour 2010 is back for another year with headliners All Time Low, The Blackout, Young Guns and My Passion.

The tour will be hitting 11 cities across the UK and Ireland in January 2010.

Kicking off at The Academy in Dublin on January 23, the tour will then make its way through the UK culminating in a very special London show at The Roundhouse in Camden on February 5.

Tickets for all shows are just £15 advance and go on pre-sale at 9am on Wednesday, October 7 – and on general sale on Friday, October 9 from 9am.

New Kerrang! editor Nichola Browne said: “What a way to celebrate the fifth year of the Kerrang! Tour. We couldn’t be more excited about this bill – it’s fresh, vibrant, youthful and dynamic, and together, these four bands will guarantee that 2009 goes off with a bang! Miss it and you really will miss out. See you at the front!”

Headlining the tour is All Time Low, who will be coming back to the UK after a two month long US tour. Gaining exposure through MTV and TRL, this band has fast become one of the hottest pop punk bands in the US and the UK.

They worked alongside Blink 182’s Mark Hoppus on their album Nothing Personal, which went into the Billboard charts at number 4 – selling over 63,000 copies.

The Blackout are one of the most hardworking home-grown bands out there – this Welsh six-piece have toured relentlessly around the world, with stints on Warped Tour and Taste of Chaos as well as selling out venues across the UK.

Young Guns have begun to make quite the impact in rock circles over the last year – since the release of their EP Mirrors this London based quintet have been taking the rock world by storm, winning them various fans amongst the media.

My Passion are four young men with a fearless, rebellious intention, DIY ethics and a genre-smashing electronic induced metallic punk sound. My Passion’s MySpace page now has over 1 million plays.
