Bullet For My Valentine Promise a “Brutal, Heavy, and Technical” New Album

Bullet For My Valentine frontman Matt Tuck has recently revealed how the process of the band’s forthcoming album has been like so far.

In a recent interview with Rock Sound, he said that Bullet For My Valentine were making good progress on their new studio album before the coronavirus pandemic shut everything down.

“We’ve never had this much at this stage pre-recording,” Tuck said. “There are seven which are finished in my eyes: vocals and everything – demoed up and ready to go. 

We’ve got a good head start and then this happened, and it’s stopped the train. It’s not ideal, and we did have a lot of plans for the rest of the year for writing and obviously making a record which are on the back-burner now until further notice.”

The vocalist and guitarist also spoke about BFMV’s good timing to take a break from touring in 2020. 

“[It] was the best decision the band could have made. ‘Cause we don’t have any of the touring headaches that a lot of bands have that obviously had festivals booked this year and touring schedules, and it’s just stopped all of that. So we’re lucky in the sense that we don’t any of that going on, but it’s still kind of spoiling the flow factor that we had six weeks ago when things were on fire again and we kind of have to put the brakes on for a bit.

But it’s okay — we’ll be fine. We weren’t scheduled to start making the record till September at the earliest anyway. So we’ll just see this out and do some writing in the meantime.”

Bullet for My Valentine have released their most recent album, Gravity, in 2018. It features a significant change in sound compared to the band’s previous releases. However, Tuck said that the follow-up to 2018’s Gravity, will be heavier.

“It’s pretty brutal. It couldn’t be more of a contrast with Gravity in a ferocious style.
You’ve just got to go with what’s floating your boat, and this time around, the heavy stuff is just coming out in masses. The riffs are crushing. There’s probably 60% aggressive vocals and 40% clean, which is a ratio we’ve never really dabbled with before. It’s very heavy, it’s very gnarly, it’s very technical.
For the Bullet For My Valentine fans that like that side of this band, they’re going to lose their minds. It’s very cool and very exciting.”
