Bullet For My Valentine have announced that they will release their fifth album, ‘Venom’, through Sony/RCA on 14 Aug.

Says frontman Matt Tuck: “It’s pretty hard to sum up an entire record after spending so much time writing and recording it and all the blood, sweat and tears that have come with this one especially. It wasn’t easy revisiting some very dark places to come up with lyrical content for this one, but once I knew where it was heading and I was comfortable with letting certain things out – all hell broke loose”.

He continued: “It’s easily the most aggressive record we’ve ever done and lyrically it will no doubt touch a nerve with a lot of people that listen to it. I cannot express enough how proud I am of it, and can’t wait for everyone out there to hear it too. We’ve reinvented who we are and are ready to take on the world once more”.

The first single from the album is ‘No Way Out’, the lyric video for which you can see here.

The band will also head out on their biggest tour of the UK and Ireland to date later this year. Here’s the full schedule:

28 Sep: Belfast, Ulster Hall
29 Sep: Dublin, Olympia
1 Oct: Bournemouth, Academy
2 Oct: Reading, Hexagon
5 Oct: Aylesbury Theatre
6 Oct: Stoke, Vitoria Hall
7 Oct: Lincoln, Engine Shed
9 Oct: York, Barbican
13 Oct: Middlesbrough, Empire
14 Oct: Carlisle, Sands
16 Oct: Leicester, Academy
17 Oct: Bexhill, De La Warr Pavilion
18 Oct: Folkestone, Leas Cliff
20 Oct: Swansea, Brangwyn Hall
21 Oct: Southampton, Guildhall
22 Oct: Ipswich, Regent Corn Exchange

I would wager that a London date is coming to that list too. But you don’t need to hang about waiting for one, because the band will be headlining the Camden Rocks festival on 30 May.
