Bullet For My Valentine Bassist Thinks Band Will Have Longevity
Posted by Chris Harris on February 14, 2013 in New Records, NewsTake that in for a second.
Jay James of Bullet For My Valentine thinks he’ll still be working ten years from now. If not 20!
When asked in this interview about his band’s new pile of shit, dude said something golden.
“I think it’s a new hybrid Bullet,” he starts.
“To sum it up in one word, I’d say it’s more mature than our previous stuff. We adopted a rule that ‘less is more’ [with] this album and gave the songs just exactly what they need. It’s not crammed with so many technical things.
“It only needs and only has the crunching, crazy riffs where they need to be. We’ve tried to approach a wider crowd and a wider audience as well as keeping the BULLET fans. It’s a fine edge to try and grasp. I think it’s a better, bigger album. We follow the rule that you’re only as good as your last album, so I think this is going to take us to the next level. Our thirst for world domination hasn’t changed. We think we’re going to be up there with the big boys for the next twenty years with this album.”
Think again. To quote Mr. Leach, “Your days are numbered.”
