The "Scream Aim Fire" video was directed by Tony Petrossian (Slayer, Avenged Sevenfold) and shot last month in an abandoned warehouse on Terminal Island at the Port of Los Angeles Los Angeles.

In addition, an exclusive 15-minute digital single - a special sneak preview of "Scream Aim Fire" - will be available for download beginning next Tuesday, December 18. Two of the album's tracks, "Eye of the Storm" plus the title track will be included, along with the band's Matt Tuck and Moose Thomas providing a behind-the-scenes track-by-track commentary about the album. The "Scream Aim Fire" digital single will sell for $1.98 and be available through all the major digital media services (iTunes, Napster, Rhapsody, etc.).

"Scream Aim Fire" is the title track from Bullet For My Valentine's sophomore release, due out January 29. The band saw their 2006 debut album, "The Poison," dubbed "One of the finest debut albums in rock history" by a major UK daily, while it sailed past the million sales mark - selling 350,000 in the U.S. alone.

"Scream Aim Fire" was produced by Colin Richardson (Machinehead, Funeral For A Friend) who also produced "The Poison," and was recorded at Sonic Ranch near El Paso, TX earlier this year. The eleven new songs are, according to frontman Matthew Tuck, "really melodic heavy metal...catchy, hooky choruses and full-on vocals, with the music being very in-your-face and's a lot more uptempo [than 'The Poison'], a lot more aggressive."

The four-piece metal core band from Bridgend, South Wales, UK - Matthew "Matt" Tuck/vocals, Michael "Padge" Paget/Guitar, Michael "Moose" Thomas/drums, and Jason "Jay" James/Bass - are, according to the UK's Kerrang!, well on their way to "phase two of world domination" with the new disc. For "The Poison," Bullet For My Valentine graced the covers - at least once - of Kerrang!, Rock Sound, and Metal Hammer. In addition, they won Metal Hammer's 2006 "Golden God Award" for Best British Band, and the 2006 Kerrang! Award for "Best UK Single" for their track "Tears Don't Fall." Here in America, the band was named "British Import of the Year" in Revolver, and "The Poison" generated the hit singles "Tears Don't Fall" and "All These Things I Hate (Revolve Around Me)," with the video for "All These Things I Hate" going to the #1 spot on MTV2.

Bullet For My Valentine will headline a tour of the UK and Europe starting in late January, and will then tour the U.S. and Canada from the end of February into early May. Details to be announced shortly.
