Bullet For My Valentine have shared their dark music video for their new single “Letting You Go.” Directed by Stuart Birchall, the clip is filmed in black and white and is a performance piece mixed with a loose storyline, opening with the quote “In spite of the pain, we cling to the memory” attributed to anonymous. You can watch it below.
The track comes from the band’s sixth album, Gravity, which drops June 29 via Search and Destroy, an imprint of Spinefarm. In a press statement, frontman Matt Tuck described the song as “a very challenging song to write in so many ways. It’s by far the most experimental track I’ve ever written musically and lyrically. I really wanted to make a track that stood out from the crowd and separated us from any other band in our genre, and that’s exactly what ‘Letting You Go’ does.”
Gravity will be the follow up to 2015’s Venom and marks the first album with new drummer Jason Bowld (Pitchshifter, Axewound) who has been touring with the band for the past two years when former drummer Michael “Moose” Thomas, sat out to spend time with his family. It also features bassist Jamie Mathias (Revoker) who joined the band after former bassist Jason “Jay” James was dismissed in 2015. You can pre-order your copy of Gravity here.
