Bullet for My Valentine Unveil “War” Video

Almost a week after the audio release of their new single, Bullet For My Valentine have given fans the official music video for “You Want a Battle? (Here’s a War).”

The video follows a family as they have reached rock bottom due to the father and all his abuse. Instead of “taking it anymore” (like the lyrics say), they decided that it’s time to take care of the negative aspect of their life. The video also features shots of the band performing the song.

Check out the music video below.

“You Want a Battle? (Here’s a War)” will join lead single “No Way Out” and “Broken”(it made its debut during the group’s performance at the Camden Rocks Festival) on Venom, the Welsh band’s fifth studio album. The record is set to be released on Aug. 14 through RCA Records.

Bullet For My Valentine Declare “A War” with New Song

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.
