Bullet For My Valentine Almost Lost Lead Vocalist
The Pulse of Radio reports that BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE singer Matt Tuck almost had to be replaced before recording began on its new album, "Scream Aim Fire", according to an interview with FMQB.com. Guitarist Michael "Padge" Paget revealed that Tuck was having problems with his voice and ultimately needed surgery, adding, "After that he had to teach himself how to sing in a different way because he couldn't sing in the way he used to be able to. It was kind of weird and scary. We even considered getting a new singer because he couldn't sing like he used to. But he had the operation and got healthy and retrained himself...His singing is better than ever, so something worked!"
Tuck told The Pulse of Radio he was very frustrated and angry when his throat began acting up because the band's management and record label did not immediately take the problem seriously. "Just the straw that broke the camel's back really was just one tour too many, which set us back nearly nine months," he said. "So it was just thinking I wasn't ever gonna be able to sing again really, which is a devastating feeling."
One of the songs on "Scream Aim Fire", "Deliver Us From Evil", was inspired by Tuck's experience.
