BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE – the hard rock/metal heavyweights whose spectacular global success, live and on record, has seen them fly the British flag from dizzying and wondrous heights – have signed a worldwide deal with Search and Destroy/ Spinefarm Records (UMG).
With 5 studio albums under their belt – The Poison (2005), Scream Aim Fire (2008), Fever (2010), Temper Temper (2013) and Venom (2015) – and more than 5 million record sales worldwide to their name, this award-winning quartet (formed in Wales in 1998) have been proudly riffin’ their way around the globe since their teenage years. Inspired by heavy metal music’s great and glorious (Metallica, Slayer, Iron Maiden), BFMV are universally revered as a colossal force to be reckoned with – stadium fillers, festival headliners… a new wave of rock royalty.
Led into action by Matt Tuck (vocalist / rhythm guitar), the line-up is completed by Michael Paget (lead guitar), Michael ‘Moose’ Thomas (drums) and latest recruit, Jamie Mathias (bass).
Most recent full-length studio offering, Venom, saw the band reuniting with producer Colin Richardson to create what is widely acknowledged – with fans and critics alike – as the most potent Bullet For My Valentine statement of intent thus far…
Since the release of The Poison (now certified gold), Bullet For My Valentine have notched up an impressive array of international facts ‘n’ stats: along with chart-topping success, these include Top 10 chart entries, # 1 Rock Chart positions, arena tours, key spots at the biggest festivals around the world plus a plethora of awards, including the Kerrang! ‘Best British Band’ gong, given to them 3 years in a row (2008 – 2010), as well as two Metal Hammer Golden Gods ‘Best British Band’ accolades (2006 / 2010), to name but a few.
Now, with Venom taking things to new heights plus a year of high-profile international touring ahead, Bullet For My Valentine have joined forces with Search and Destroy/Spinefarm Records in a new global deal.
Bullet for My Valentine front person, Matt Tuck, commented…
“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.”
2016 finds Bullet For My Valentine perfectly placed to become one of the biggest metal bands in history, continuing to create a body of work that will become an obligatory part of any hard rock or metal fan’s record collection forever more…
