Welsh metallers BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE have chosen “Riot” as the next single from their upcoming “Temper Temper” album. The band is currently in New York City filming a video for the track with renowned director P.R. Brown, who has previously worked with such artists as MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE, John Mayer, Alicia Keys, Carrie Underwood, Prince, AUDIOSLAVE, MÖTLEY CRÜE and SIXX: A.M.
“Temper Temper” will be released on February 11, 2013 in the U.K. via Sony Music. The album’s title track was released on November 25 across all digital providers.
“Temper Temper” was once again produced by Don Gilmore (LINKIN PARK, GOOD CHARLOTTE), who worked on the group’s last LP, 2010’s “Fever”, and was mixed by noted engineer Chris Lord-Alge (DEFTONES, NICKELBACK, AVENGED SEVENFOLD).
BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE frontman Matt Tuck recently revealed that the band’s recording process on this album was influenced in part by his work in his side project AXEWOUND. “We approached the record a lot differently this time around,” he said. “It was kind of more inspired by the way I did the AXEWOUND record. And that was basically: Get in the studio and write and record as you went along.”
BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE will embark on a U.K. tour in March. Support on all dates will come from HALESTORM.
