NEW BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE SONG & VIDEO
Bullet for My Valentine‘s audience has grown considerably over the recent years and their latest video, ‘Riot,’ reflects that evolution on a somewhat smaller scale. The band recently shot the clip in Brooklyn, N.Y., with director P.R. Brown and the video finds singer Matt Tuck as a bit of a hard rock pied piper as he roams the tough city streets.
In the video, Tuck belts the track’s anti-establishment lyrics as he passes graffiti covered walls and multiple youths seem to heed his call, popping up as he walks by. As the song suggests, it’s not long before the sirens and the law are hot on the tail of Tuck and his growing following.
But before you think that Tuck is rounding up the troops for some Michael Jackson ‘Beat It‘-like showdown, he heads down a dark alleyway and enters an abandoned warehouse lit only with swinging light bulbs as he and his bandmates rock the ‘Riot’ song for their newfound fans.
To keep the anticipation buzzing for their fourth studio album, Bullet for My Valentine have released the record’s title track, a video to go along with it and an exclusive peek into the recording process of the album. Now, Bullet for My Valentine are unleashing ‘Riot’ as the new single from the forthcoming album.
Bullet fans will encounter a familiar brand with ‘Riot,’ which blends radio-friendly metal with some impressive soloing. In both ‘Riot’ and the album’s title track, the sound is very fluid, which makes a great deal of sense when considering frontman Matt Tuck’s description of how the band recorded ‘Temper, Temper.’
“We approached the record a lot differently this time around,” explains Tuck. “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.”
