Bullet For My Valentine have shared the second single from their forthcoming, seventh studio album. ‘Parasite’ goes so hard. As frontman Matt Tuck told Kerrang, it’s “an absolute rager from start to finish.”
“[It’s] easily one of the gnarliest tracks we’ve ever written — we couldn’t be more stoked to finally get it out there,” he continued.
“I think it’s the most ferocious side of Bullet For My Valentine that I’ve ever known,” said Bullet For My Valentine lead guitarist Michael ‘Padge’ Paget told Kerrang. “It’s time for us to put out a really angry, heavy, aggressive record. I just can’t wait to grimace on stage!”
‘Parasite’ is a frantic yet melodic unleashing and it’s a lot of fun. It comes with a music video directed by Fiona Garden as well.
On it she says, “For Parasite we just wanted to let the song rip.
“The intensity and fury of the track tears along, pure performance and vitality.
“Along the way, in a world defined by blinding light and the phenomenal graphic work of artist Carl Addy, we see this new infinite incarnation of the avatar aM cuts being ritualistically infected and drawn further into limitless oblivion.
“No locusts were harmed in the making of this video.”
‘Parasite’ comes ahead of the new, self-titled album. It’s due for release Friday, 22nd October.
