Welsh metalcore act BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE has entered the studio with producer Colin Richardson (MACHINE HEAD, FEAR FACTORY, NAPALM DEATH) to begin recording its new album, tentatively due later in the year. A studio diary has been launched via the group's official web site.In a recent interview with Canada's Dose.ca, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE drummer Michael "Moose" Thomas stated about the group's new material, "It's 100 percent BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE. Within the first few notes, you're going to know it's BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE. It's a little more heavy and hard — it's full-on British heavy metal." 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. There are also eight mini episodes, which form part of Bullet TV and were edited from footage shot by the band themselves over the last 12 months on the road. As well as all that, there are lyrics to all tracks performed at Brixton Academy, and a photo gallery from the show. The audio was mixed by the legendary Colin Richardson (producer of "The Poison") and mastered in both stereo and 5.1 by Ted Jensen (METALLICA). An e-card for "The Poison - Live At Brixton" has been made available at this location. BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE's debut album, "The Poison", has sold 187,000 copies in the U.S. since its February 2006 release, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
