“Riot”, the new single from Welsh metallers BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, will be available at all digital providers on January 15. The track, which can be streamed below, is the first official single from the band’s fourth studio album, “Temper Temper”, set for release February 12, 2013. The LP will be available in both standard and deluxe editions on RCA Records.
BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE last month filmed a video for “Riot” in New York City 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” 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.”
