Bullet For My Valentine Release Live Video for New Single

Heavyweight Welsh metalers, Bullet For My Valentine, have released a new music video for their latest single, “P.O.W.”!  The video, which can be seen below, features this metal powerhouse in a live setting, showcasing their highly energetic concert performance that- when mixed with their hard hitting and aggressive sound- has helped build their reputation as one the finest metal bands of today.  The new single comes from the band’s new album, Temper Temper, which was released earlier this year courtesy of RCA Records.  “P.O.W.” serves as Bullet For My Valentine’s third single from the new album, with the previous singles, “Riot”, and, “Temper Temper”, becoming prominent fixtures on the Rock Charts in the many weeks following their release.
Since the release of Temper Temper, Pearl artist, Michael “Moose” Thomas and Bullet For My Valentine have been practically living on the road to support the new album, immediately embarking on headlining tours across the globe, including their current headlining US run on the 2013 HardDrive Live Tour.  Throughout each stop on this hectic World tour, Michael “Moose” Thomas has relied on his Reference Series drums, which are custom finished in a dark purple lacquer, complete with black hardware.  Due to the technical ferocity and heavy hitting nature of Bullet For My Valentine’s sound, Michael relies on the varying shell configurations and individuality of each drum in the Reference Series to achieve his desired tones, and to offer more creativity when it comes to the fast and frenzied fills often heard in their unforgettable anthems.  Moose’s full specs are as follow:

Reference Series
Dark Purple Lacquer (matte)

22x18 bass drum x2
8x8 rack tom
