BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, one of the biggest British hard rock acts in recent music history, will release their new opus, Gravity, on June 29.
Gravity marks BFMV’s first album release under the Search and Destroy/ Spinefarm Records banner. It aptly sees the band rewriting its own future — finding new ways to invent heavy noise and remaining unshackled by the legacy that comes with being masters of its trade.
Listen to first single “Over It” below:
The four musicians have stretched their creative wings like never before, delicately balancing film score electronica and icy synths in their trademark hellfire of hard rock.
With drummer Jason Bowld joining founding members, singer/guitarist Matt Tuck and fellow axeman Michael “Padge” Paget, along with bassist Jamie Mathias, who has been a part of the Bullet story since 2015, this is a band reborn.
BFMV will be touring with fiery dedication as they hit the U.S. throughout April, May, and June, before playing second to headline on the Friday of Download (UK) Festival — their first home-turf festival performance in five years. The band will then appear at European summer festivals and venues before traveling to Japan for the Summersonic event.
