Recent UK press Quotes:
‘We all like to think that, at some point in our lives, the planets will align and everything we planned for and dreamed of will finally happen. The four members of BFMV have recently been in the odd position of not only being certain that such a day is coming for them, but also knowing exactly when it’s coming. Because, without question, Fever is that day’s sunrise.’ – Kerrang 5/5 Album of the week
‘Fevers are infectious and Bullet For My Valentine’s one is no exception’ – The Sun
‘There’s a strong ear for melody of the type that’s lifted them out of the metal aisle of record shops and into the mainstream’ – The Guardian
‘If you are a Bullet for my Valentine fan, this is going to blow your mind’
Rock Sound album of the month 8/10

Sunday 12 LONDON, WEMBLEY ARENA
The band will also be releasing their blistering new download only single ‘Your Betrayal’ on July 12ththrough Columbia. The single, which is the opening track on new album ‘Fever’, combines a pounding, 1:20 intro where front man Matt Tuck sings about deception and dishonesty in a relationship turned sour, switching between hair-crawling whispers of agony and full blown emotion.
BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE also recently saw their new album ‘Fever’ debut at #1 on both the Rock and Alternative charts and #3 on the US national Billboard’s album chart. The highly anticipated Don Gilmore (Linkin Park) produced 3rd record, featuring the blistering Radio 1 B-list single ‘The Last Fight’, was released on April 26th and is B4MV’s top selling debut to date, selling over 71,000 units in the first week in the US alone, a 34% increase over B4MV’s previous 2008 release, the album ‘Scream Aim Fire’.
The fever has spread across the globe where ‘Fever’ has made its mark on international album charts, hitting #2 on Japan’s “international artist chart”, #2 in Austria, #3 in Germany, #4 in Switzerland and #5 in the United Kingdom and Australia!
Whilst already receiving rave reviews here in the UK (including a 5/5 lead Kerrang review), across the pond, the reaction has been even more feverant. USA Today calls ‘Fever’ the “hot-zone of 2010 rock-metal discs” while The Associated Press touts Fever’s “blistering drum attack, tight power chords and…old school-styled, soaring guitar solos”.
After making their official worldwide live comeback on the day of album release in the UK at the Islington Academy in London (via a Myspace Secret Show), BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE are currently in the midst of a completely sold out North American tour with support from Chiodos and Airbourne.
