Bullet for My Valentine Reveal ‘Temper Temper’ Album Artwork
Bullet for My Valentine recently revealed that their latest studio album, 'Temper Temper,' would be arriving on Feb. 11 and now we know what the album cover art looks like. The band has unveiled the artwork (see the image on the left) for their forthcoming release and it shows a darker side to the album's title.
Given that the title 'Temper Temper' suggests some hot-headedness, the imagery of a pair of bloody hands, palms up, is a striking one. The pose is almost mindful of a person who is looking down upon their hands contemplating the dastardly deed they've done, though we never actually see the person's face.
So far, the group has served up the album's title track and a second single 'Riot' to check out in advance of the disc's release, but it is not known how those songs compare to the rest of the record. In addition, the band has also unleashed a music video for 'Temper Temper,' giving at least some visual representation of the song.
Bullet for My Valentine fans have had to wait a little while for a new disc, as singer Matt Tuck spent much of 2012 balancing his time between Bullet and his other hard-edged band, AxeWound, who toured and released their debut disc last year. Tuck says having the other group did affect Bullet for My Valentine's latest effort, explaining, "We approached the record a lot differently this time around. It was more inspired by the way I did the AxeWound record and that was basically: get in the studio and write and record as you went along."
