Bullet For My Valentine Finish New Album

Bullet For My Valentine have officially finished their new album. They made the following Instagram post about that:

Matt Tuck previously told NME the following about the effort:

“…We’ve tried to approach songwriting differently, and a bunch of stuff. We don’t wanna regurgitate anything we’ve done in the past. That’s the past — we wanna look forward to the future. We tried to make things bigger by calming things down on the technical side.

So we’ve still got really big, massive heavy groove songs, but instead of being super-thrashy and technical on the guitar, they are far simpler and far more digestible, but it gives you a far bigger sound.”

This will be the group’s first album since officially welcoming Jason Bowld (Pitchshifter, Axewound) to the band.


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.


Moose himself also tweeted the following:
