BFMV stream Playing God

Bullet For My Valentine have made their track Playing God available to stream.

The song is taken from the British metal outfit’s upcoming fifth album Venom, due for release on August 14 via RCA. They’ve previously released streams of Army Of Noise and You Want A Battle? (Here’s A War).

Drummer Moose Thomas last month said the band had “failed miserably” with their fourth album, Temper Temper. He said: “Working with certain people and producers, if you’ve had a radio hit at one time in your career, they try and make your whole album sound like that.

“We tried to do that on the last album – and we failed miserably. So we went back to our roots and picked up where we left off.”

BFMV are on a North American tour with Slipknot and Lamb Of God, and return to the UK in September.
