Bullet For My Valentine Team Up With Lyme Bay Winery For “Waking The Demon” Honey Mead

Bullet For My Valentine have teamed up with Lyme Bay Winery to create “Waking The Demon” honey mead. You can purchase that at wakingthedemon.co.uk. Here’s a description of the beverage:

“Waking the Demon Honey Mead is a ferment of honey, water and spices to create a smooth, rich drink which can be enjoyed on its own or mixed as a base for cocktails. A rich honey flavour with balanced acidity, honeyed notes and a backing of gentle spice. Like the Demon, there is hidden strength here (14.5% ABV) and not to be toyed with!”

Bullet For My Valentine Have Eight Songs Written For Their Next Album

During a recent interview with Rock Sound, Bullet For My Valentine’s Matt Tuck revealed that the band have already written “eight new tracks” for their next album. The group are not planning to release the effort until 2021, but the frontman did say “all signs are currently pointing towards a far more aggressive, gnarly, riff-based record.”

Tuck said the following when asked if the band have been writing material for the follow-up to “Gravity”:

“Absolutely – a bit of an exclusive – we’ve already got eight new tracks. So we’ve been busy behind the scenes when we’ve not been touring over the last few months. It feels really good. ‘Gravity’, like I said – it wasn’t the gameplan at the time, but when we were making it we thought the process behind it was like ‘well if we do do a record like this, the next one – forward thinking – it just opens the door to do whatever we want again’. And instantly it has. All indicators are pointing towards ferocious heaviness.”

He continued:

“So I don’t know – maybe it was just something that we needed to get out of our system, and come back to the more traditional way of writing a Bullet record. All signs are currently pointing towards a far more aggressive, gnarly, riff-based record.”

He also added the following about release plans:

“We’ve just been having a chat in the dressing room now with a few people, and we’re probably going to aim for a ’21 release. We want to take our time on this. And we want to work with people that we really wanna work with, and we may have to wait depending on their schedules. But we think ’21 is a safe bet, to give us the time to do what we want, how we want to do it, and not be rushed or forced into anything.”

Bullet For My Valentine Have Already “Written A Couple Of Songs” For Their Next Release

During a recent interview with Metalshop TV, Matt Tuck confirmed that Bullet For My Valentine have already “written a couple of songs” for their next release. He said the following about the new material:

“I think early signs are pointing in the direction of kind of a dirty love child of ‘Venom’ and ‘Gravity’. We’ve written a couple of songs already, so it’s taking the best bits of those two and kind of smashing them together. So far, people are quite excited about it.”
