Though we've got to wait a tiny bit longer for the new Bullet For My Valentine album due to "COVID-related manufacturing delays", frontman Matt Tuck has revealed that, once the LP is finally out, there will be even more new material to come soon after.

Speaking to the Everblack podcast (via Blabbermouth), the vocalist and guitarist says that, this time around, the band really hit their songwriting stride thanks to a heavier approach towards the music – and it means that new material has been "pouring out" of Bullet.

"We've got so much more stuff that's not on the record that we can release post-record as well; [we've got] another six tracks ready to go," Matt says. "We're just a songwriting machine right now. So it feels good, man."

Discussing their creative approach, he explains: "We just kind of hit upon this sound and this way of writing songs right now in our career which we couldn't be happier with. I just feel like the last six albums in 15 years plus has just all been channeling to this. That's how it sounds to me.

"It's got everything that you would expect from Bullet but just on a completely different level. The melodies are stronger, the riffs are more intense, the drumming is ferocious, just the feel of the record as a whole is pretty intense."
