Bullet For My Valentine live

Bullet For My Valentine have released a live video featuring their track You Want A Battle? (Here’s A War).

It was recorded during the band’s tour stop in Birmingham, Alabama, as they continue to support the launch of fifth album Venom.

Frontman Matt Tuck recently said You Want A Battle? was inspired by his own experience of being bullied. He told Billboard: “It took me a long time to actually pluck up the courage mentally and physically to stand up for myself – it was a momentous moment for me.

“I was able to stand up for myself and defend myself, and the band became the biggest ‘fuck you’ to everyone. That’s what the song’s about: going through hard times and coming through the other side.”

Bullet For My Valentine – who recently signed a new record deal – are currently touring North America, with European and UK dates to follow.
