Bullet For My Valentine
w/ Halestorm, Young Guns, and Stars in Stereo
Sometimes, there's no better feeling than losing control. Energy gets released; it's irresistible and infectious. That's the case on Bullet For My Valentine's fourth full-length offering, TEMPER TEMPER (RCA Records) set for release February 12, 2013. Tightening their grooves and sharpening their riffs, the Welsh quartet who has sold over 4 million albums world wide—Matt Tuck [vocals, guitar], Michael "Padge" Paget [guitar], Michael "Moose" Thomas [drums], and Jason James [bass]—fire off an incendiary collection of hard rock anthems with arena-ready bombast and metallic intensity.
After a whirlwind cycle in support of 2010's Fever, the band decided to do something a little different when the time came to record album number four. Quite appropriately on Valentine's Day 2012, Tuck and "Moose" boarded a plane for Thailand. Instead of recording in the U.S. or UK, they collectively hunkered down at Karma Sound Studios in Bang Saray with producer Don Gilmore (Linkin Park, Rob Zombie, Hollywood Undead). The experience proved inspiring and invigorating on numerous levels."I had a bit of an idea going into this," smiles Tuck. "It was basically 'record-as-we-go'. There were no writing or demo sessions this time around. I'd just done the same thing with my other band AxeWound, and it was so exciting and productive. So I asked the Bullet boys, 'Can we go somewhere and write and record the album?' We decided on Thailand, and it was the best decision we could've made."
TEMPER TEMPER signals the start of Bullet For My Valentine's biggest and best chapter yet. "We wanted to make songs that would stand the test of time," concludes Tuck. "Every track takes you on a little journey, and that's what music should do for people. We've gone through the stage of having to prove ourselves. We're men now. We want to please ourselves first and hopefully our fan base with what we do. We're not worrying about what critics think or say. We're not interested in genres or labels either. It's about doing what comes naturally. I can sleep at night knowing the boys and I have made the fucking best record we could've."
