Band’s New Album “Fever” Continues To Heat Up Rock Charts
Welsh rock sensations Bullet For My Valentine return to North America in September. In support of their latest album Fever, the four-man band will kick-off a 32-date tour on September 16 in Wichita, KS at The Cotillion. Escape the Fate, Black Tide and Drive A will open all shows.
Their third major label release, Fever, debuted at No. 1 on the Rock, Alternative and iTunes Rock charts and No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 200 Albums chart and marking Bullet For My Valentine’s highest American debut to date. Don Gilmore (Linkin Park, Good Charlotte) produced Fever at studios in Los Angeles and Wales.
USA Today called Fever “The hot-zone of 2010 rock-metal discs,” The Associated Press praised the album’s “blistering drum attack, tight power chords and…old school-styled, soaring guitar solos” and the BBC trumpeted that “BFMV are aiming for world domination, and with Fever they may well achieve it.”
A special presale will start this Tuesday, July 27th – July 29th, and fans can log onto to www.bulletformyvalentine.com – to obtain the special code needed for the presale. General on-line sales begin July 30th.
Since BFMV emerged from Bridgend, Wales in 2005 with their first album The Poison, Bullet For My Valentine have spread their music through near-constant touring, including 2009’s Mayhem Festival in the States. The band spent most of the summer of 2010 playing European festivals and before they hit the U.S. in September they’ll head off to Australia for a national tour. Bullet For My Valentine are comprised of Matt Tuck (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Padge (lead guitar), Jason James (bass guitar, backing vocals), and Michael Thomas (drums).
