Bullet for My Valentine have confirmed they are to play the Ulster Hall in Belfast on 28th September 2015.
Bullet For My Valentine also announced their eagerly awaited fifth studio album VENOM, released 14th August on RCA Records. The first taste from the blistering new album “No Way Out” premiered on BBC Radio 1 and is available for instant download with every pre-order of VENOM from www.bulletformyvalentine.com.
Produced by Carl Bown and Colin Richardson (Slipknot, Machine Head, Trivium) at Metropolis Studio in London, VENOM is an unrelenting, fierce step forward for Bullet For My Valentine. Their heaviest record to date, it sinks its teeth into listeners with a powerful delivery by vocalist/guitarist Matt Tuck, ferocious riffs by guitarist Michael “Padge” Paget and rapid-fire rhythm courtesy of drummer Michael “Moose” Thomas. On VENOM the trio maintains their signature balance of heavy, coupled with surging melody, and pushes themselves to the next level.
Of the new record front man Matt Tuck says:
“It’s pretty hard to sum up an entire record after spending so much time writing and recording it and all the blood, sweat and tears that have come with this one especially,” says Tuck.
“It wasn’t easy revisiting some very dark places to come up with lyrical content for this one, but once I knew where it was heading and I was comfortable with letting certain things out – all hell broke loose. It’s easily the most aggressive record we’ve ever done and lyrically it will no doubt touch a nerve with a lot of people that listen to it. I cannot express enough how proud I am of it, and can’t wait for everyone out there to hear it too. We’ve reinvented who we are and are ready to take on the world once more.”
The band also announces the additional of fellow Welshman Jamie Mathias as their new bass player and backing vocalist. They have established themselves as one of the biggest bands on the planet. Over the course of their astonishing career they have sold 10 million albums and toured the globe countless times, gaining more fans at every turn. In the UK their last tour saw them hit sell out arenas, including the 10,000 capacity Wembley Arena.
