Frontman MATT TUCK Says It’s ‘In The Cards’ That BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE Will Be The Next METALLICA


BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE frontman Matt Tuck believes it’s “in the cards” that his band will become the next METALLICA. And he doesn’t mind if it means waiting another 20 years for it to happen.

In a recent talk with the Mark And Me Podcast, Matt said: “I would absolutely, in my heart, want to be around in 20 years’ time and headlining all these festivals that Metallica has done for years. I think it’s in the cards.

“I think it’s just being patient and waiting for certain bands to hang up the guitars and [make way for] the younger generation.”

He added: “Even though we’ve been doing it for 20 years, we’re still by no means an old band, which, again, is amazing. We’re ready to go, but again, it’s just being patient. And I’d like to think that we will be there, but it’s got to be for the right reasons, and everyone’s got to be happy in their hearts.”

Tuck went on to say that it’s not about the money and fame aspects of being in a successful metal band. “I kind of realized that I’ve got to enjoy what I’m doing, first and foremost,” he explained. “It’s more just like, ‘Am I enjoying this? Am I happy? Do I feel content? And am I rewarded?’ And if it’s all yes, then hell yeah, I’m all about it.”

The BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE frontman got his start in a METALLICA cover band, which he believes was the catalyst to bring him into a life of creating heavy music. “From the moment I heard Metallica’s Black Album, that was when I knew I wanted to do what I do today,” he recalled.

“It was a very, very kind of life-changing moment for me, discovering that band, and then I just went on my musical journey. Anything with guitars, anything that was loud, anything which had attitude.”

BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE are currently on a jaunt across Europe which wraps up on July 7 in Tampere, Finland at Sauna Open Air.
