Bullet For My Valentine Release Video for “Worthless”

Bullet For My Valentine are currently in the middle of their much-anticipated North American tour, so what better time than the present to release a brand new music video. On Tuesday (Feb. 9), the Wales-based band did just that when they released the music video for their latest single “Worthless.” Unlike their previously released videos like “You Want a Battle (Here’s a War)” which were more on the dark and theatrical side, “Worthless” primarily features the band performing in a darkly lit room.

“The video itself is very direct, there’s no narrative at all. We wanted to keep it super simple and as we went really deep in narrative on ‘Battle’ and ‘Venom’ we thought it would be nice to keep it more performance based,” said frontman Matt Tuck. “The song itself has become one of our favorites from ‘Venom’ and from all the comments we get from you guys we know it’s one of yours too. Enjoy.” Check out the music video for “Worthless” below.

“Worthless” is featured on the band’s sixth studio album, Venom. In support of Venom, the band is currently on the road for their “The British Invasion Tour.” Asking Alexandria and While She Sleeps are supporting the Welsh band throughout the complete trek. Upcoming tour dates for “The British Invasion Tour” can be seen here.

In addition to the current tour, the band will also play several upcoming rock-centric music festivals in the spring including Jacksonville’s Welcome to Rockville, Ft. Myer’s Fort Rock, and Oklahoma’s Rocklahoma.

Asking Alexandria Confirm Release of New Album

Typically, when you get asked to join the Vans Warped Tour for the complete summer as a somewhat headliner, it means that you will be releasing some new music. Well, as the past has shown, that’s not always true. But for fans of Asking Alexandria, it looks like they will indeed be getting new music in the new year. Late last week, when most of us were celebrating the holidays, the band took the time to announce the released of their fourth studio album.

The band’s upcoming new album will be titled The Black and is set to be released in March through Sumerian Records. The Black marks the band’s first album without longtime vocalist, Danny Worsnop as well as the arrival of new singer, Denis Shaforostov, formerly of Make Me Famous. In an interview, guitarist Ben Bruce revealed how exactly things have changed with the arrival of Shaforostov.

“One thing that was a huge, huge difference – which was really refreshing – is Denis was really involved with the writing,” said Bruce. “He would critique me, he would give me ideas, he’d be, like, ‘I’ve heard you do better. Do better.’ And he really, really pushed me, whereas Danny would just kind of not do anything. I’d send him the songs and he’d be, like, ‘That’s shit. I don’t like it. It’s too heavy.’ And then, ‘If I have to do it, I’ll do it.’ So there wasn’t much interaction between me and Danny, but with Denis, he was very hands-on.”

Prior to the new record’s announcement, the band has released two new songs; “I Won’t Give In” and “Undivided,” showcasing Shaforostov’s vocals to those AA Family members who were still apprehensive about the addition. Check out the artwork for The Black below.

Just in time for the release of the new record, Asking Alexandria will be hitting the road alongside Bullet For My Valentine for their “The British Invasion Tour.” The tour is scheduled to kick off on Feb. 2 at the House of Blues in San Diego and wrap up a month or so later on March 7 at Metropolis in Montreal. The complete list of tour dates can be found here.

Armed with a new singer and several tours with said new singer under their belts, Asking Alexandria has revealed that they will be hitting the North American touring circuit next year with Bullet For My Valentine. The tour, which has fittingly been named “The British Invasion Tour” (since you know, BFMV is from Wales and Asking Alexandria is from England) is slated to kick-off on Feb. 2, 2016 at the House of Blues in San Diego and wrap up a month or so later on March 7, 2016 at Metropolis in Montreal.
