Bullet for My Valentine has released “Parasite,” the second single from its recently announced self-titled album, due Oct. 22, 2021, via Spinefarm/Search & Destroy.
“For ‘Parasite,’ we just wanted to let the song rip,” video director Fiona Garden said. “The intensity and fury of the track tears along, pure performance and vitality. Along the way, in a world defined by blinding light and the phenomenal graphic work of artist Carl Addy, we see this new infinite incarnation of the avatar aM cuts being ritualistically infected and drawn further into limitless oblivion. No locusts were harmed in the making of this video.”
The band said: “‘Parasite’ is an absolute RAGER from start to finish!!! Easily one of the gnarliest tracks we’ve ever written—we couldn’t be more stoked to finally get it out there.”
“Bullet for My Valentine” follows 2018’s “Gravity,” which saw the the band’s catalogue surpass 1 billion streams in the United States.
“I think it’s the most ferocious side of Bullet for My Valentine that I’ve ever known,” guitarist Michael “Padge” Paget said. “It’s time for us to put out a really angry, heavy, aggressive record. I just can’t wait to grimace on stage!”
