Bullet For My Valentine Postpone European Tour

Bullet For My Valentine have postponed their winter European tour. The band commented:

“To our Bullet family in Europe, We are very disappointed to have to announce that our European tour later this month is being postponed. Unfortunately due to Covid restrictions and issues across various countries, we are unable to come and play for you. We are however working on a new set of dates, at a time where restrictions should have eased. We want to give you guys the best show possible, and we can’t wait to be back. We look forward to seeing each and everyone one of you very soon. Stay safe, BFMV”

Matt Tuck Says Leftover Songs From Bullet For My Valentine’s Self-Titled Album May Be Released As A “Really Crazy” New EP

During a recent interview with NME, Bullet For My Valentine’s Matt Tuck revealed that the band might release a new EP featuring six songs that were recorded during the sessions for their recently released self-titled album. He said the following about that:

“They’re part of the same writing and recording process. Some of them are quite different and unique. We didn’t want wanna put them on ’cause they were curvebally. But they were curvebally enough to have a spotlight on ’em post-album. We wanted the album to be a really solid, cohesive body of work from front to back and we didn’t wanna throw too many creative curveballs in the album. We thought it was actually better to keep them off for standalone singles post-record and maybe have some kind of really crazy EP maybe at the end of the cycle, just so people can hear them, so they get the light of day. But, yeah, they’re heavy, they’re interesting, they’re pushing boundaries and they’re super exciting.”

Bullet For My Valentine Already Have “Six Tracks Ready To Go” For A Follow-Up To Their Self-Titled Album

During a recent appearance on the “Everblack Podcast,” Bullet For My Valentine frontman Matt Tuck discussed the band’s upcoming self-titled album (out November 5). Notably, he also mentioned that the band already have “another six tracks ready to go” for a follow-up.

Tuck said the following when asked about the heavier direction of the new self-titled record:

“It just was what it was. We just kind of hit upon this sound and this way of writing songs right now in our career which we couldn’t be happier with. I just feel like the last six albums in 15 years plus has just all been channeling to this. That’s how it sounds to me. It’s got everything that you would expect from BULLET but just on a completely different level. The melodies are stronger, the riffs are more intense, the drumming is ferocious, just the feel of the record as a whole is pretty intense. There are moments of calm, like ‘Can’t Escape The Waves’ and ‘Rainbow Veins’ and moments where you get a bit more melody for your buck. We’re just in a good place creatively and musically right now; it just keeps pouring out of us. We’ve got so much more stuff that’s not on the record that we can release post-record as well; [we’ve got] another six tracks ready to go. We’re just a songwriting machine right now. So it feels good, man.”

He continued when asked why they decided to make the album a self-titled affair:

“It just feels like the band is in a different place, man. It feels fresher and more energized than ever. After we’d recorded the record and lived with it, the management were, like, ‘It’s time, boys.’ We didn’t think about it, really, but it was suggested to us by a lot of people around us. They’re not emotionally involved in the writing and recording of it like the band; they just kind of hear it like you guys are hearing it, and they’re, like, ‘Fuck.’ It just feels like the time is right to really put the band’s name as a stamp on what we do and it just feels like the time is right. And I don’t feel like the record could be any better, and I don’t feel it could [better] represent where the band is and who it is right now in 2021.”

Bullet For My Valentine Premiere “Shatter” Video

Bullet For My Valentine have premiered a new video for their new song “Shatter.” This track is from the band’s new self-titled album, which will be released on October 22.

The group commented:

“We’re very excited for you all to hear our new track ‘Shatter.’ It’s one of our personal favorites and we’re pretty sure it’ll be one of yours. It’s an absolute sledgehammer of a track with riffs for days. Let the head banging commence!”

A press release also said the following about the video:

“The visualiser for ‘Shatter’ is a visceral and instinctive moment in the new Bullet visual era. For this project, frontman Matt Tuck collaborated with creative director Fiona Garden and her husband, artist Ben Ashton.

Using tactile optical elements, smashing endless panes of glass, and getting covered in oily black paint, Tuck worked hands-on with Garden and Ashton to create a physical mood that was both ‘cavernous and claustrophobic.'”

Fiona Garden added:

“These hypnotic abstract visuals were then fed into the fearsome and instinctive creative machine behind ‘Knives’ and ‘Parasite’: editor Sara Faulkner and VFX artist Gabriel Thomas Ayache. The clip features, as always, the design edge of Carl Addy (ulcerboy.)”

Bullet For My Valentine Premiere “Parasite” Music Video

Bullet For My Valentine have premiered a new video for their new song “Parasite.” This track is from the band’s new self-titled album, which will be released on October 22.

The group said the following about the song:

“‘Parasite’ is an absolute rager from start to finish. Easily one of the gnarliest tracks we’ve ever written. We couldn’t be more stoked to finally get it out there.”

Director Fiona Garden also commented on the video:

“For ‘Parasite,’ we just wanted to let the song rip. The intensity and fury of the track tears along, pure performance and vitality. Along the way, in a world defined by blinding light and the phenomenal graphic work of artist Carl Addy, we see this new infinite incarnation of the avatar aM cuts being ritualistically infected and drawn further into limitless oblivion. No locusts were harmed in the making of this video.”
