Bullet For My Valentine have surprised everyone by announcing that they’ll be releasing a brand new single next week!
The track will be revealed via BBC Radio 1 on Monday (November 18).
“Words cannot express how excited I am for the world to hear #RaisingHell,” says Matt Tuck via Twitter. “We haven’t just raised the bar, we’ve sent it into fucking orbit.”
The quick return to the studio follows the somewhat mixed response to this year’s Temper Temper, with BFMV drummer Moose confirming that we’ll likely be hearing something altogether heavier come next year.
“It’s definitely more of a step towards our first two records,” he tells Billboard.com. “We always like to keep changing our records and our sounds and stuff. I think you have to change, otherwise it gets boring for us and the fans get bored. Look at all the great bands through rock history; they changed on all their albums — especially Metallica. Their albums have always changed, and they’re the biggest metal band ever. So we just want to keep changing and get to another level each time out.”
This would reaffirm frontman Matt Tuck’s suggestions earlier this year that Bullet were looking to go heavier on album number five. “Basically, we’re gonna go a lot heavier next time,” Matt tells EMP Rock Invasion. “We just think we’ve kind of done what we wanted to do with [producer] Don [Gilmore]. We just don’t wanna do the same thing again. So now we kind of went from heavy to kind of thrashy to kind of hard rock records.”
