BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE: 'Temper Temper' Video Released
"Temper Temper", the new video from Welsh metallers BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, can be seen below. The track is the title cut of the band's fourth album, which will be released on February 11, 2013 in the U.K. viaSony Music. The song will be released on November 25 across all digital providers.
"Temper Temper" was once again produced by Don Gilmore (LINKIN PARK, GOOD CHARLOTTE), who worked on the group's last LP, 2010's"Fever", and was mixed by noted engineer Chris Lord-Alge (DEFTONES,NICKELBACK, AVENGED SEVENFOLD).
In a recent interview with South Africa's Voice Of Rock Radio, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE frontman Matt Tuck stated about the band's upcoming album, "For me, it's a huge compliment that [Gilmore] really didn't have much input [this time around], 'cause on the last record he did, and it kind of opened my eyes to write differently and to think about, not slowing things down, but kind of… there's no restraint on screaming and restraint on a million miles an hour. It's not necessary, really. We've kind of done that [already]. So on this record, [he kind of] sat back and let me do it without having much input, which to me, knowing Don, is a huge compliment, 'cause it means I've kind of done it right by my own. So, yeah, we've definitely fucking nailed it on this record. I know it's a long way before coming out and anyone's gonna hear anything, but I've lived with [it] and I know what it is, and trust me, it's good."
As previously reported, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE will embark on a U.K. tour in March. Support on all dates will come from HALESTORM.
Jane’s Addiction Looking to Create Viral Video for “Splash a Little Water on It”
Jane’s Addiction is hoping to create a special video for “Splash a Little Water on It,” a track from their latest album, The Great Escape Artist. Frontman Perry Farrell says that while he has a concept in mind for the video, he just needs to find the money to make it.
“I’ve been trying to get the money to do a video for [‘Splash a Little Water on It’],” the singer tells ABC News Radio. “It’s not going to be a radio single, it’s going to be, hopefully, a viral video piece that you’re be able to see on YouTube and all the other great places where people look at and view music today.”
Farrell notes that the song’s lyrics deal with the consequences of partying too hard. “’Splash a Little Water’ is about a couple who notoriously stay up very, very late and then at the same time they’ve got these obligations,” he explains. “So, you get yourself up and you get yourself over to the bathroom mirror and you splash a little water on your face and see if you come alive, try to get your mind working.”
Farrell previously told ABC News Radio that the band will be heading into the studio sometime this month to begin working on a new “body of music that would be maybe 45 minutes long.”
