Bullet For My Valentine have announced their self-titled seventh studio album.

Reuniting with producer Carl Brown, the Welsh metal heavyweights will release the follow-up to 2018's 'Gravity' on October 22 via Spinefarm Records/Search & Destroy. 

Written in 2019 and 2020, it'll feature the newly shared single Knives, which finds the band returning to their more intense and aggressive stylings, going hard on crushing guitar riffs and fierce vocals. Head below to view its accompanying Fiona Garden-directed video, along with the record's artwork and tracklist. 

Singer and guitarist Matt Tuck, guitarist Michael 'Padge' Paget, bassist Jamie Mathias and drummer Jason Bowld will accompany the LP with a UK tour, calling in Nottingham, Edinburgh, Hull, Manchester, London, Cardiff and Brighton between October 31 and November 9. Tickets go on general sale at 10am on June 25. Tuck said:

"This is the beginning of Bullet 2.0. It signifies where we are right now. The music is fresh, it's aggressive, it's more visceral and passionate than it's ever been."

"I think it's the most ferocious side of Bullet For My Valentine that I've ever known," Padge revealed. "It's time for us to put out a really angry, heavy, aggressive record. I just can't wait to grimace on stage!"

"I wanted to come out guns blazing, fucking middle fingers flying, and just go for the throat," Tuck added. "I think this is a far more aggressive, intense part of Bullet For My Valentine. It's always been there. I've just never opened the floodgates on it. I want to take people's heads off in a metaphorical way."

They also appear at the sold out Download Pilot festival this weekend, headlining the final day on Sunday (June 20).
