Bullet For My Valentine Premieres New Music Video

Metal band Bullet For My Valentine are getting closer and closer to the release of their sixth album, “Gravity,” which will be released on June 29th. In preparation for the album’s release, the band has given fans a teasing taste to one of the album’s singles, “Over It.”

The new music video was directed by Stuart T. Birchall, and is among one of the first songs to be released as a follow up to the band’s 2015 album, “Venom.”

“Over the last 12 months, I’ve been thinking about the word ‘contemporary’ a lot,” singer/guitarist Matt Tuck says. “And I feel this is a contemporary record. It’s not an old-school, heart-on-your-sleeve influences thing. We’ve done that so let’s move forward and make the band more interesting. We don’t want to alienate anyone… but we don’t want to write the same shit anymore. Metalheads will enjoy this. I actually feel the softer electronic parts make the heavy moments even more crushing. It’s about engaging the listener and taking them on a journey, messing with their heads a bit…”

“This is me pouring my heart out into song,” continued Tuck. “It’s all about that journey. I picked up my guitar, even though I didn’t really want to, and it’s like I couldn’t stop it, like I couldn’t fight it… Something boldly experimental can’t be done on a whim, we had to be comfortable and eventually we got there. The album is so up and down, so positive on tracks like ‘Not Dead Yet’, which is all about seizing the day and catching the moment. Then ‘Under Again’ is all about the crushing depression I had about a year ago. The whole thing captures the character of… well, me — with some help from [producer] Carl Bown. There’s so much weight to this music without being complicated. That’s exactly what this album is: very uncomplicated.”
