Former Bullet For My Valentine drummer Michael ‘Moose’ Thomas is back with a new band called Kill The Lights.

Having parted ways with BFMV in 2016, Thomas has recruited vocalist James Clark of Throw The Fight, guitarists Jordan Whelan from Still Remains and Travis Montgomery of Threat Signal, and Glamour Of The Kill bassist Davey Richmond for this new project.

“I’m super grateful and excited to be back”, says Thomas. “I can’t wait for everyone to hear this. When I parted company with the old band, musically I was just sitting around doing fuck all and realised I had worked too hard and come too far to turn around. I thought I’d get in touch with Jordan and sent him a text asking, ‘got any riffs or what?!’ Before I knew it, he had sent me 30 or 40 songs. I was like, ‘erm, OK!’ I couldn’t believe it”.

Explaining how he came to have quite so much unused music knocking around, Whelan says: “I’m a hobby songwriter, which means I’m writing every day, whether it’s for a band or not. I’ve known Moose since I was a nineteen year old kid. Funnily enough, his first tour in the States was opening up for my band, then he said we should jump on a tour with them through the UK – which ended up being the Kerrang! Tour of 2006”.

“The chemistry was there right off the bat”, he adds of his new bandmate, “and I knew right away this could be something that takes over the world”.

Kill The Lights have various plans for 2019, but for now they’re simply announcing their arrival with a debut single, ‘The Faceless’. Check out the video here:
