Bullet For My Valentine just released a music video for the title track from their recently released Venom, which debuted at #7, selling 26,250 albums in its first week. According to Venom director Stuart Birchall this clip follows “part one” from their previous music video for “You Want a Battle? (Here’s a War),” and also teasing, “of course I left room for a finale!”
Said Birchall of the making of this latest music video:
“Working with Bullet is a real pleasure. It is important for me to connect with the artist, their music and establish trust creatively. After our first video I was very keen to continue the journey of the characters we established in taking the narrative in a fresh direction. The band and management were behind this 100%. We discussed taking a more cerebral tone with a darker subtext. Maeve O Connell (DOP) and myself wanted to take the cinematography in a different direction stylistically and the cast were all very keen to continue the story and journey we had started together.”
In early 2016 Bullet For My Valentine will be touring the US with Asking Alexandria. This will be their first US tour with their new bass player Jamie Mathias, who takes over for long-time bassist Jay James. James had been with the band since 2003, but left while they were in the studio recording Venom.
