Welsh heavy metal band BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE have set Gravity as the title of their sixth studio album, due on June 29. The full-length recording is with new drummer Jason Bowld (PITCHSHIFTER, AXEWOUND), who has been touring with the group for the past two years, and bassist Jamie Mathias (formerly of REVOKER), who joined the band after the last disc was completed. They released the first single off the album titled, “Over It.”
Lead vocalist, Matthew Tuck told NME, ” we tried to make the upcoming disc a different-sounding record, we’ve tried to approach songwriting differently, and a bunch of stuff. We don’t wanna regurgitate anything we’ve done in the past,” he said. “That’s the past — we wanna look forward to the future. We tried to make things bigger by calming things down on the technical side. So we’ve still got really big, massive heavy groove songs, but instead of being super-thrashy and technical on the guitar, they are far simpler and far more digestible, but it gives you a far bigger sound.”
