BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE: Japanese Tour Dates Announced

BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE has lined up the following Japanese dates:

Aug. 28 - Tokyo, JPN @ Shibuya AX
Aug. 30 - Nagoya, JPN @ Diamond Hall
Aug. 31 - Osaka, JPN @ Big Cat

A video interview with BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE guitarist Michael Paget and drummer Michael Thomas, conducted by PureGrainAudio.com on April 21 in Toronto, Canada, has been posted online at this location.

BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE frontman Matt Tuck recently told Revolver magazine that he is writing meaner, less syrupy melodies for the group's upcoming CD, which the band started recording in January at Sonic Ranch studios in Tornillo, Texas with producer Colin Richardson (MACHINE HEAD, FEAR FACTORY, NAPALM DEATH). He is also avoiding lyrics about relationships.

"We want to be more metal all across the board," Tuck told Revolver. "On their second album, a lot of bands try to please their record company by doing something more commercial. We didn't want to fall into that trap."

BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE has written 14 songs for the as-yet-untitled CD, which they hope to have out by the fall. Songtitles set to appear on the album include "Scream, Aim and Fire", which is about going to war, and "Waking the Demon", a cut that's definitely not suitable for KROQ or MTV. "It's about getting revenge on a bully at school by slicing pieces off him," Tuck told Revolver. "There's some really sick shit in there, so I'm happy."

BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE's debut album, "The Poison", has sold 250,000 copies in the U.S. since its February 2006 release, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
