After much speculation regarding the drummer situation in Bullet For My Valentine, an official answer has been announced. In a new update on their Facebook page, the band have announced that Jason Bowld, who has filled in for original drummer Michael "Moose" Thomas ever since early 2016, is now the band's official drummer. I think it's safe to say that we all saw this coming.
In the same update, the band stated about the recording process for their sixth studio album, which will be released sometime in early 2018. Read the statement down below.
In the spirit of starting a fresh chapter for Bullet For My Valentine, we wanted to clarify the Bullet For My Valentine drummer situation . As most of you know, Jason Bowld has been in the hot seat since November 2015, playing every show we’ve done since then - killing it every single night. Jase has been a big part of making the last cycle for us our most enjoyable and successful yet, from the live shows through to the writing and recording sessions for ‘Don’t Need You’ last year.
With that said, we’d like to officially welcome Jason to Bullet For My Valentine as our permanent drummer. Since initially filling in for Moose in 2015, Jase has cemented himself as an integral member of the Bullet family, and you guys are going to be blown away with what he’s brought to the new record.
We’d like to place on record our thanks for everything that Michael “Moose” Thomas has given to Bullet throughout his time in the band, and we wish him every success in his future endeavours.
Please join us in welcoming Jase to the fold, as I know he’d like to thank you guys for all the support and love you guys have given him over the last 2 years. We’ll see you guys in 2018. It’s going to be a big one. - BFMV.
We definitely look forward to hearing the new Bullet For My Valentine record. Keep checking back here for more updates on the record as they are announced. The band have already announced a bunch of tour dates for 2018, including a North American support slot with Avenged Sevenfold and Breaking Benjamin in January and February, as well as a select number of U.S festival slots and a bunch of European festivals for the summer.
