Bullet For My Valentine Unveil Powerful ‘You Want a Battle? (Here’s a War)’ Video
Last week, Bullet for My Valentine released the audio of the single “You Want a Battle? (Here’s a War)” from their upcoming album Venom that will drop Aug. 14. Now they’ve got a video for the track that you can watch above.
Directed and edited by Stuart Birchall (Bring Me The Horizon, Young Guns) the clip for “You Want A Battle? (Here’s A War)” is a narrative video that shines a light on domestic violence and abuse.
“I have always wanted to work with Bullet and I knew after talking with Matt [Tuck] that the style of storytelling I had in mind was very well suited to their own ideas,” says Birchall. “The band and label were very respectful of the creative process and allowed me to develop and refine concepts until we had the perfect fit. We were all keen on making a bold, dark statement about abuse that would resonate with a wide audience and complement this with a stylish performance.”
Birchall continues, “Everyone involved worked hard to bring the vision to life, it is always humbling to work with such dedicated cast and crew. As a filmmaker, being trusted and given creative freedom by the artist to interpret their message is where the most powerful work is done.”
If you like the song, you can currently pick it up via iTunes. Bullet for My Valentine will be hitting the road as part of the 2015 Summer’s Last Stand Tour with Slipknot, Lamb of God and Motionless in White that kicks off July 24 in West Palm Beach, Fla.
