This is different.
Bullet For My Valentine have dropped a new song, and it marks something of a departure for them.
It's called 'Piece Of Me', and sounds something like this:
It's taken from their upcoming album 'Gravity', out June 29 via Spinefarm / Search And Destroy.
Here's another track from the record, 'Over It'.
The band have announced two huge UK headline shows, supported by Of Mice & Men, and those dates are:
11 - LONDON Alexandra Palace
12 - CARDIFF Motorpoint Arena
We recently caught up with frontman Matt Tuck to talk all things Bullet. Here's a taster:
SPEAKING OF NEW SONGS, HOW'S 2018 SHAPING UP FOR YOU? HAS [YOUR RECENT US TOUR] SET A PRECEDENT FOR WHERE YOU WANT TO GO?
"We’ve got a big campaign setting up behind the scenes, amazing European festival slots coming up with our new album not even out, which shows amazing faith and love for our band from promoters who believe in what we can do in 2018. We’ve got a lot of special things coming up that I can’t say too much about, but the campaign that we’re building for this new cycle is the biggest we’ve ever done, by a massive margin. We’re super proud of what we’ve achieved, what the album and band sound like now, and we’re hoping and expecting really big, positive things for us over the next 24 months."
WHAT ARE THE HIGHS AND LOWS OF TOURING FOR YOU THESE DAYS?
"I think everyone’s least favourite thing is being away from home for long periods of time. It’s the one thing that you have to do if you want to do this, but when you become a parent and more of a family man, it becomes hard to juggle that with your professional life – for me, being away from my little boy is the hardest part. It’s only on the American tours that it becomes an issue, because you’re away for so long… it’s so huge, you have to go out for between six and twelve weeks minimum to do a proper tour. It’s horrible not being able to be there for my little boy."
"But on the other hand, I got back on Saturday afternoon and I’ve already done the school run, I’ll be around pretty much 24/7 until I go away again, so there are payoffs. But on the other hand, you get to have all these experiences on massive stages and get 10,000 people singing your song back at you… and that’s my job. It’s crazy. It definitely has highs and lows, but the highs often outweigh the lows. Every single person on the planet who does this goes through it, from the bands to the crews."
They'll be hitting the US later this year, and here's where you'll be able to catch them:
