Bullet For My Valentine have announced that they've had to push back the release of their upcoming self-titled seventh LP.

The Welsh metal kings state that "COVID-related manufacturing delays" mean that the album will be coming out on November 5 instead of the original planned date of October 22 – so it's only a two-week delay!

"Important update here regarding the release of our 7th studio album," the band write in a statement. "Unfortunately due to COVID related manufacturing delays, we have no choice but to push back the release of our self titled record to November 5.

"It's important for us that you all be given the opportunity to experience this album at the same time, so as disappointing as it is to have to wait a little longer, we promise you it will be worth it. We want to thank you all for showing your support for this record so far! Stay tuned for more exciting news coming this week."

Previously hinting at what's to come from the album, guitarist Padge enthused: "I think it’s the most ferocious side of Bullet For My Valentine that I’ve ever known. It’s time for us to put out a really angry, heavy, aggressive record. I just can’t wait to grimace onstage!"

Frontman Matt Tuck also teased, "I wanted to come out guns blazing, fucking middle fingers flying, and just go for the throat. 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."

Earlier this month, Bullet dropped Shatter from the record – listen to that below:
