BFMV Matt: Venom will be 'milestone'
Frontman Tuck expects big things of 5th album – as they plan to take fans ashes on tour
Matt Tuck has predicted Bullet For My Valentine's upcoming album Venom will be a milestone in the band's career.
Speaking to TeamRock Radio at Camden Rocks last weekend, Tuck said: "The album is hands down the best thing we've ever done. That's not me trying to sell it, because people will have their own opinion anyway.
"But it is the best thing we've ever done – by a mile. So to have that arsenal of weapons now and to be able to play these songs feels sick. It's good to be back.
"That's kind of what happens in our band. Nothing ever stops. Milestone after milestone and cool event after cool event. We don't ever do anything which isn't cool."
Meanwhile, BFMV are planning to take the ashes of two fans on tour with them. It's their way of paying tribute to James Simmons, 18, and Corran 'Coz' Powell, 21, who died after a car crash in Essex last year. The Mirror reports the band have been sent jewellery containing the ashes, to be carried on their North American road trip with Slipknot and Lamb Of God from next month.
They tour the UK and Ireland in September and October. The full interview with Tuck will be broadcast as part of TeamRock Radio's Camden Rocks special on Saturday.
