Bullet For My Valentine Chooses "Waking The Demon" For Next Single and Video
Getting bullied in school - it's every young student's worst nightmare, and the basis of "Waking the Demon," the next promo video and U.S. single from Bullet For My Valentine's sophomore album, "Scream Aim Fire" (Jive/Zomba). "Waking the Demon" is probably the hardest song on Bullet's album and has its roots in the band members' own experiences of getting beat up at school because they had long hair or because they were in a band.
According to Bullet For My Valentine's vocalist/lyricist Matt Tuck, "'Waking the Demon' is about finding someone's inner demon. Most of us in the band got pushed around in school so the song is about getting tormented, day in and day out for years, and then one day - 'snap!' - like that!"
The video for "Walking the Demon" was written and directed by Max Nichols (son of Academy Award-winning director Mike) and will breathe a visual life into Bullet's lyrics:
"There's just no limits to the boundaries you push
I've warned you but still you just f**k with my mind
There's no escape from this rage
That I feel
Nothing is real
Breathe for me, don't wake me from this slumber
Stay with me possession taking over."
