Bullet For My Valentine will be opening for Slipknot and Lamb of God during the “Summer’s Last Stand” tour alongside Motionless in White, but before they can get to that, they have released a new song in anticipation of their upcoming new album.
The new song is titled “You Want a Battle? (Here’s a War)” and will be featured on their impending record, Venom.
While the newly released video is only the audio for the track, the band have confirmed the official music video will be released on Monday, June 29.
In a recent interview with Billboard, frontman Matt Tuck unveiled that the song is them addressing the issue of being bullied and telling their fans that it happens to everyone.
“[It] happens to everybody, and it’s not a nice place to be when that happens. It took me a long time to actually pluck up the courage, mentally and physically, to stand up for myself, so it was kind of momentous moment for me. I had lost all these battles in my young life, and all of a sudden I was growing into a young man. I was able to stand up for myself and defend myself, and the band actually became something big and special and just like the biggest ‘f*** you’ to everyone. That’s what that song’s about, really. It’s about going through hard times and coming through the other side.”

“You Want a Battle? (Here’s a War)” will join lead single “No Way Out” on Venom which is due out on Aug. 14 through RCA Records.
