BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE Frontman Says New Album Is 'A Lot More Uptempo, A Lot More Aggressive'

BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE recently shot a video for the song "Scream, Aim, Fire" in Australia. The song is likely to be the first single and the title track from the band's upcoming new album, which is due for release on February 12, 2008. The new CD will follow up the band's 2006 effort, "The Poison", and singer Matt Tuck told The Pulse of Radio what fans can expect this time out. "Basically we haven't tried anything dramatically different from what is us," he said. "I mean, there's all the ingredients that make BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE what we are. There's still the stupidly insane, catchy choruses. That was the main focal point of the album again, you know what I mean, like trying to get the choruses as strong as possible. The biggest difference is probably the tempo and the aggression. It's a lot more uptempo, a lot more aggressive."

Video director Frank Borin described the clip for "Scream, Aim, Fire" as "a social commentary about the facade of war and the deceitful tactics used to recruit the young men of our country."

BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE began writing its second album back in January. The Welsh band started work at Sonic Ranch studios near El Paso, Texas.

"The Poison" has sold 330,000 copies since coming out in February of 2006.

The group performed this past weekend at the Extreme Playgrounds 2007 skateboard world cup and international BMX contest in Berlin, Germany.
