BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE's new album pushed back to November
Welsh metallers BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE have pushed back the release date of their seventh, self-titled studio album to November 5 from the previously announced October 22.
The band announced the delay in a social media post yesterday (Monday, September 20).
“Unfortunately due to COVID related manufacturing delays, we have no choice but to push back the release of our self titled record to November 5th,” they wrote.
“It’s important for us that you all be given the opportunity to experience this album at the same time, so as disappointing as it is to have to wait a little longer, we promise you it will be worth it. We want to thank you all for showing your support for this record so far!
“Stay tuned for more exciting news coming this week. BFMV x”
“I think it’s the most ferocious side of BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE that I’ve ever known,” says lead guitarist Michael “Padge” Paget. “It’s time for us to put out a really angry, heavy, aggressive record. I just can’t wait to grimace on stage!”
“I wanted to come out guns blazing, fucking middle fingers flying, and just go for the throat,” agrees guitarist/vocalist Matt Tuck. “I think this is a far more aggressive, intense part of BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE. It’s always been there. I’ve just never opened the floodgates on it. I want to take people’s heads off in a metaphorical way.
“This is the beginning of BULLET 2.0. It signifies where we are right now. The music is fresh, it’s aggressive, it’s more visceral and passionate than it’s ever been.”
Tuck began writing the album in September 2019 before the coronavirus pandemic brought things screeching to a halt in early 2020. But in June 2020, Tuck and longtime producer, Carl Bown, who co-produced the band’s 2015 album, “Venom”, and produced and mixed “Gravity”, picked up the pace again. Together, they hunkered down at Treehouse Studio in Chesterfield, where the remainder of the album was written.
Aptly self-titled, the band has triumphed, creating an album that will cement its place in the metal pantheon.
