Bullet For My Valentine have confirmed that they’ll begin recording their sixth studio album next month.

They’re reported to have begun work on the follow-up to 2015’s Venom back in the summer. And with an appearance at Knotfest Mexico scheduled for this weekend and a run of North American shows planned for early next year with Avenged Sevenfold and Breaking Benjamin, Bullet For My Valentine are wasting no time in preparing their new album.

They say on Instagram: “Final day of pre-production tomorrow before we head off to Mexico on Thursday for the final show of 2017.

“It’s been an intense few months of writing, rewriting and demoing our asses off. We start recording album six from November 6.

Earlier this year, the Welsh outfit released the DVD/Blu-ray Live From Brixton: Chapter Two, which was captured during the band’s consecutive sold-out shows in London in December last year.

The two shows saw Bullet For My Valentine revisit their 2005 debut album The Poison.
