Bullet For My Valentine Officially Part Ways With Drummer Michael “Moose” Thomas

Bullet For My Valentine have officially parted ways with drummer Michael “Moose” Thomas. Taking his place will be Jason Bowld, who has been touring with the band since November 2015.

The band commented:

“Bullet family,

So, the time is almost upon us. We’ve been slaving away since April on new music, and we’re stoked to say that as of today – the sixth Bullet album is 99% DONE. We’ve one or two cherries to add to the cake, so to speak, but we can say without doubt that we’ve created something that we’re incredibly proud of, and we can’t wait to let you hear it.

In the spirit of starting a fresh chapter for Bullet For My Valentine, we wanted to clarify the Bullet For My Valentine drummer situation . As most of you know, Jason Bowld has been in the hot seat since November 2015, playing every show we’ve done since then – killing it every single night. Jase has been a big part of making the last cycle for us our most enjoyable and successful yet, from the live shows through to the writing and recording sessions for ‘Don’t Need You‘ last year.

With that said, we’d like to officially welcome Jason to Bullet For My Valentine as our permanent drummer. Since initially filling in for Moose in 2015, Jase has cemented himself as an integral member of the Bullet family, and you guys are going to be blown away with what he’s brought to the new record.

We’d like to place on record our thanks for everything that Michael “Moose” Thomas has given to Bullet throughout his time in the band, and we wish him every success in his future endeavours.

Please join us in welcoming Jase to the fold, as I know he’d like to thank you guys for all the support and love you guys have given him over the last 2 years.

We’ll see you guys in 2018. It’s going to be a big one.

BFMV.”

Matt Tuck Says Bullet For My Valentine Have Written Music For Six New Songs

Matt Tuck was recently interviewed by Master Kingdom’s Alex Stojanovic, and revealed that Bullet For My Valentine have six instrumentals ready for their next album. He said the following:

“It’s very early days. I wouldn’t really like to say any more about what it sounds like, ’cause it’s just instrumental stuff at the minute and we’re still finding our feet. We’ve only got six instrumentals; two of them we’ve kind of demoed vocals on. So it’s very early days, but early signs are good. We’re very excited. And, yeah, I don’t know. I can’t say any more about it because there isn’t anything yet. We’re just working our asses off trying to [come up] with something special, as we always do.”

In other news, he also said the following about drummer Michael “Moose” Thomas, who has been absent from the group since taking a break for the birth of his first child: “He’s doing good, I think. I haven’t spoken to him for a while, but I think he’s doing good.” He went on to say that only Moose can tell them when he will be ready to return.
