BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE Guitarist: 'New Album Is Gonna Be Heavy As Sh*t'

February 5, 2007

Welsh metalcore act BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE has entered a Texas studio with producer Colin Richardson (MACHINE HEAD, FEAR FACTORY, NAPALM DEATH) to begin recording its new album, tentatively due later in the year.

Commented guitarist Michael Paget: "Moose [drummer Michael 'Moose' Thomas] has now finished eight tracks off the new record. Man, it's sounding heavy!! Colin reckons he has beat 'The Poison' drum sound already, so that's wicked! He only has four (including two brand new tracks) to go, so big up for Moosey!!! Guitars should be getting underway the beginning of next week; can't wait! This new album is gonna be heavy as shit — better, stronger drum parts, metal riffery, bad-ass solos (lots of 'em!),and killer bass lines!!! I'm excited as hell!"

BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE's "The Poison - Live At Brixton" DVD was released in the U.S. on December 19 via Trustkill. The disc, which was issued in Europe on Oct. 30, captures the band's sold-out show in front of over 4,000 people at London's legendary Brixton Academy on January 28, 2006 (filmed with over 15 cameras),along with over an hour of bonus material, including the band's videos so far, EPKs and documentaries edited to songs from both "The Poison" and the "Hand Of Blood" EP, plus a behind-the-scenes look at the band performing at the Download Festival and the Metal Hammer Awards in the U.K. last summer.

BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE's debut album, "The Poison", has sold 190,000 copies in the U.S. since its February 2006 release, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
