Welsh metallers BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE have signed a worldwide deal with Search And Destroy/Spinefarm Records.
Commented BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE frontman Matt Tuck: "We're very proud and excited to announce our signing to Search And Destroy/Spinefarm Records. It feels great to be part of a family that truly believes in the band and is ready to take us to the next level. It's been an incredible journey so far — but with the Search And Destroy/Spinefarm team behind us, it feels like we've just begun. Here's to the future."
BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE's fifth studio album, "Venom", was released in August 2015 via RCA. The CD marked the band's first release since the departure of longtime bassist Jason James and addition of Jamie Mathias (formerly of REVOKER).
Produced by Carl Bown and Colin Richardson (SLIPKNOT, MACHINE HEAD, TRIVIUM) at Metropolis Studio in London, "Venom" was described in a press release as "an unrelenting, fierce step forward for BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE" and the band's "heaviest record to date."
BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE recently completed the North American "British Invasion" tour, also featuring opening band ASKING ALEXANDRIA.
BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE drummer Michael "Moose" Thomas took a temporary leave of absence from the band to spend time with his wife, as they awaited the birth of his first child. Filling in for him was Jason Bowld (PITCHSHIFTER, AXEWOUND).
