Bullet For My Valentine's Tuck Hopes For 'Biggest Metal Record' Of 2015

(TeamRock Radio) Bullet For My Valentine frontman Matthew Tuck believes upcoming album Venom will be the "biggest metal record of the year." The follow-up to 2013's Temper Temper will be released on August 14 and the band have lined-up a 19-date UK and Ireland tour to support their fifth studio outing.

Tuck tells Kerrang (via Blabbermouth): "We've got massive hopes for this album. We truly believe it's going to be the biggest metal record of the year. We've had these feelings in the past and we've always been spot on, but this one feels way more special than anything else we've ever done. So fingers crossed, it's going to do what we want it to do."

Tuck also praises bassist Jamie Mathias who was brought into the fold earlier this month to replace Jay James who departed in February. He adds: "We held auditions for a few guys, and when he came, he just smashed it. He fitted in instantly, especially with the Welsh connection. He plays like a beast and he sings like an angel."
