Over the weekend Welsh metal band Bullet For My Valentine premiered their new single "Over It" on BBC Radio 1's Rock Show with Daniel P. Carter. The song comes from their upcoming album Gravity, which drops June 29 via Search and Destroy, the band's new label imprint launched in 2014 by Spinefarm.
Speaking about the new album with Loudwire back in February, frontman Matt Tuck said, "It's a step in a more contemporary direction, musically. We kind of focused on the songs as a whole, and the weight of the song. rather than the technicality and the speed. I think we wanted to do something that was bringing the band more into a 2018 vibe. We didn't want to write a normal, stock, heavy metal record. We wanted to push ourselves creatively and incorporate new sounds and instrumentation and ways of songwriting." You can see the song's lyric video above.
Gravity marks the band's sixth album and their first since the departure of original drummer Michael "Moose" Thomas. Thomas originally took a break from the band in 2016 to spend more time with his wife, who was expecting their first child at the time. Jason Bowld took over playing drums for their tour and has been playing with them ever since. It wasn't until December 2017 where the band officially announced Bowld as a full-time member. This is the second original member to leave Bullet For My Valentine. Bassist Jason James left the band in 2015.
