bulletformyvalentine stToday, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE announce their self-titled, seventh album ‘Bullet For My Valentine’. The record will be released on October 22 via Spinefarm /Search & Destroy and sees the band open a bold new chapter. It’s easily their heaviest, fiercest album so far. “This is the beginning of Bullet 2.0,” says vocalist and lead guitarist Matt Tuck. “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.”

BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE follows the success of their last album, 2018s ‘Gravity’, which saw the Metal juggernauts’ catalogue surpass 1 BILLION (yes, with a B!) streams in the U.S. That accomplishment solidifies Bullet’s hard-earned status as one of the most elite bands in the hard rock scene. On the last cycle, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE played their biggest shows to date, including a UK arena tour and a massive show at London’s Alexandra Palace. But this time around, the band has taken things back to basics. BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE is stacked with squealing solos and monstrous riffs that will delight fans - both new and old.

“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 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.” True to their word, the first single, ‘Knives,’ arrives like a punch in the face.

Watch the video for the new single ‘Knives’, directed by Fiona Garden:


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 long-time 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 cements its place in the metal pantheon.

Pre-orders for BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE’s seventh studio album are now live, with an instant download of the first single, ‘Knives’, and special bundle options, including a unique clipping from the backdrop used on the bands ‘Venom’ world tour from 2015 – 2017, t-shirts, hoodies, gold & silver cassettes, and limited vinyl.
