36 Crazyfists Cancel European Tour

Due to a delay in the recording process 36 Crazyfists have been forced to push back the release of their upcoming Ferret Music debut, "The Tide and Its Takers." The album which was originally slated for a March 4th release is now slated to drop on April 29th. The album will still be produced by the band’s guitarist Steve Holt and mixed by Andy Sneap.

Bullet For My Valentine Need Fans For Video Shoot

Despite director Frank Borin's recent announcement that he would helm BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE's video for the song "Scream, Aim and Fire" in Australia in early September, it appears that the clip has not yet been shot. The Welsh metal band has just made the following announcement via its MySpace page:

"Attention all So Cal BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE fans! How would you like to be in BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE's next video? The band will be shooting a video for their new single 'Scream, Aim, Fire' in Los Angeles on Saturday November 17th at an undisclosed Location. Please email us your name, phone and email address to bulletvideoshoot@gmail.com and enter to be an extra in the video. You must be 18 years old to enter and must bring a valid driver's license for proof of age. You will be contacted before the shoot with location and all other relevant information! Good luck!!!!

BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE has set "Scream, Aim and Fire" as the title of its new album, according to Revolver magazine. Due in February 2008 via Trustkill Records, the follow-up to 2005's "The Poison" was recorded at Sonic Ranch studios near El Paso, Texas with producer Colin Richardson (MACHINE HEAD, FEAR FACTORY, NAPALM DEATH) and will contain 11 songs, all of which frontman Matthew Tuck describes as "really melodic heavy metal. It's not 'The Poison II'; but at the same time it's got everything that you'd expect BULLET to have — really catchy, hooky choruses and full-on vocals, and the music is very much in-your-face and heavy. We've still got songs that are like 'Tears Don't Fall', but they're much more '80s-arena influenced. It's stuff that in 10 years' time will probably be really uncool to listen to; but in 20 years' time it's going to be the best thing ever," he laughed.

Tuck added, "The majority of the album is in a totally new gear for us. We're a band that doesn't see the point in standing still or doing the same thing twice, you know? The only thing we could do was completely blow 'The Poison' out of the water, and we think we've done that."

"The Poison" has sold 339,000 copies in the United States since coming out in February of 2006 (the CD was issued in Europe in October 2005), according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Bullet For My Valentine Frontman Talks New Album

BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE recently shot a video for the song "Scream, Aim, Fire" in Australia. The song is likely to be the first single and the title track from the band's upcoming new album, which is due for release on February 12, 2008. The new CD will follow up the band's 2006 effort, "The Poison", and singer Matt Tuck told The Pulse of Radio what fans can expect this time out. "Basically we haven't tried anything dramatically different from what is us," he said. "I mean, there's all the ingredients that make BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE what we are. There's still the stupidly insane, catchy choruses. That was the main focal point of the album again, you know what I mean, like trying to get the choruses as strong as possible. The biggest difference is probably the tempo and the aggression. It's a lot more uptempo, a lot more aggressive."

Video director Frank Borin described the clip for "Scream, Aim, Fire" as "a social commentary about the facade of war and the deceitful tactics used to recruit the young men of our country."

BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE began writing its second album back in January. The Welsh band started work at Sonic Ranch studios near El Paso, Texas.

"The Poison" has sold 330,000 copies since coming out in February of 2006.

The group performed this past weekend at the Extreme Playgrounds 2007 skateboard world cup and international BMX contest in Berlin, Germany.

Machine Head Added To Metallica's Wembley Bill

Machine Head has replaced Bullet For My Valentine as one of the opening acts for Metallica on July 8 at the Wembley Stadium in London, England. Also scheduled to appear are H.I.M. and Mastodon.

Bullet For My Valentine cancelled its appearance at Wembley and several other European dates in order to allow frontman Matt Tuck to undergo tonsillectomy (a surgical procedure in which the tonsils are removed).

Professionally filmed video footage of Machine Head's entire performance at the Download festival on June 9, 2007 at Donington Park, Leicestershire, England has been posted at YouTube.

Bullet For My Valentine Forced To Cancel Shows

Welsh metallers BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE have cancelled the following dates:

Jun. 29 - Spain, Bilbao (w/ METALLICA)
Jun. 30 - Germany, Freiburg, MTV Campus Invasion
Jul. 03 - UK, London Islington Academy
Jul. 05 - Austria, Vienna (w/ METALLICA)
Jul. 08 - UK, London Wembley Arena (w/ METALLICA)

Commented the band: "Frontman/lead singer Matt Tuck was due to have a tonsillectomy mid-July but, due to unforeseen complications, the operation had to be brought forward at the last minute at the advice of Matt's doctor. Matt is recovering well but has been ordered not to sing for a minimum four-week period, which means that the band have no choice but not to play the shows listed above.

"The band are hugely disappointed but will be going back into the studio as soon as Matt's health is back to 100% to put the finishing touches to the highly anticipated follow up album to 'The Poison', due out late 2007."

Matt Tuck was unable to speak but wrote from his bed: "If I'd known my tonsils were going to cause me to miss shows like these I'd have fucking ripped them out myself long ago. I am totally gutted at not being able to play these shows and the only consolation the boys and I can take from it is that we are now fully focused on the album and we'll be back in the studio as soon as the doctors say I can sing again. I truly can't wait for you fuckers to hear it!"
