Bullet For My Valentine’s Matt Tuck: “I Had A Huge Point To Prove With New Album”
Bullet For My Valentine have returned to form with their forthcoming album, ‘Fever’, and singer/guitarist Matt Tuck talked Hammer through the vocal lines, an area that could be marked ‘Most Improved’ since ‘Scream Aim Fire’.
Matt: “We wanted to do something fresh and exciting but that was still us. Having [producer] Don Gilmore was a very conscious decision. We didn’t want him to change us as musicians, just help with the vocals and get the best possible performances out of us. It’s a weird thing singing in the studio, you don’t get the adrenaline the energy the buzz, it’s you in front of a microphone looking at a guy staring at you. To get the performances out in the studio was hard but don was amazing. We rewrote the lyrics and melodies up to five times on some songs because he didn’t think they were strong enough. We worked insanely hard to get the vocal lines different but still Bullet. The vocals took linger than everything else on the album put together. It was brutal work but I personally thought I had a huge point to prove so that’s why I stuck at it.”
“Everyone’s buzzing about this one. WE just tried to get that energy and excitement and vibe back into the band because the ‘Scream, Aim, Fire’ sessions just ripped our hearts out of wanting to be in a band.”
