Bullet For My Valentine will release a deluxe version of their sophomore album, Scream Aim Fire in the leadup to their upcoming Australian tour!
The limited edition enhanced CD/DVD package will hit stores in Australia this Saturday, December 9, 2008, and will include the original album in its entirety along with four bonus tracks —three new songs (Road to Nowhere, Watching Us Die Tonight, and One Good Reason Why) that are exclusive to the Deluxe Edition, as well as Ashes of the Innocent, a track previously available of SAF vinyl and digital download only. The CD also features all 11 Scream Aim Fire mini-comics illustrated by noted underground artist Tom Manning, most of which have never been seen before.
On the bonus DVD, fans will find music videos for the title track, Waking The Demon and Hearts Burst Into Fire, along with five hilarious new episodes of Bullet TV, the band’s long-running series of behind-the-scenes home movies, all filmed and edited by the band members themselves while on tour in Switzerland, Japan, Australia and New Zealand.
Scream Aim Fire: Deluxe Edition caps off an exciting year for the foursome Kerrang! Magazine named Best British Band in 2008. Band members Michael Thomas, Jason James, Matt Tuck and Michael Paget have toured worldwide in support of their second album, which debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 chart and made the Top 5 in six other countries, Germany and Austria (No. 3), Japan and Australia (No. 4), and the U.K. and Sweden (No. 5). The title track to Scream Aim Fire also landed a coveted spot on the new video game Guitar Hero World Tour.
On the road, the band co-headlined the 2008 Taste of Chaos tour in the U.S. and sold out a trek to Australia in early 2008. Their recently completed U.K. tour also sold out in advance and included a tremendous bow at London’s 8,000-seat Alexander Palace, which was filmed for future release as a Hi-Def concert DVD. The band also played the 2008 Reading and Leeds festivals and are currently wrapping a sold out EU tour with plans to take a break for the holidays before hitting the Big Day Out festivals & sideshows in Australia and New Zealand.
