Bullet For My Valentine Bittersweet Memories Video

Bittersweet Memories music video for the song from Fever, the third studio LP from Welsh metalcore band Bullet For My Valentine.  The record was released in April 2010 on the Sony Music Entertainment and Jive Records labels.

The record was produced by prolific producer Don Gilmore, BFMV front-man Matt Tuck said about the collaboration – “We wanted to do something fresh and exciting, but that was still us. Having Don Gilmore was a very conscious decision. We didn’t want him to change us as musicians, just help with the vocals and get the best possible performances out of us.  It’s a weird thing singing in the studio; you don’t get the adrenaline, the energy, the buzz, it’s you in front of a microphone looking at a guy staring at you. To get the performances out in the studio was hard, but Don was amazing. We rewrote the lyrics and melodies up to five times on some songs because he didn’t think they were strong enough. We worked insanely hard to get the vocal lines different but still Bullet. The vocals took longer than everything else on the album put together. It was brutal work, but I personally thought I had a huge point to prove so that’s why I stuck at it.   Everyone’s buzzing about this one. We just tried to get that energy and excitement and vibe back into the band because the Scream Aim Fire sessions just ripped our hearts out of wanting to be in a band”

Commenting on Fever in a 2010 interview BFMV front-man Matt Tuck said – “The main objective on this album was to please ourselves rather than pleasing other people and critics. We wanted to go into making this album as innocent as you do making your first record, with no expectations and no pressure. Just do what you do. That formula made our first album explode. So even though Scream Aim Fire was successful, we did stray away from that formula that made us who we were in the first place so we wanted to go back and recapture the moment.   There was a lot of experimentation in trying new techniques I’d never tried before, but ended up resulting in a better product. I always thought that I knew what was best, but I think I was internally trying to understand that I don’t always know what’s best and think of the better product.  The recording process was tough, but challenging and rewarding. The end result really speaks for itself and I adore it”

Fever was band’s most successful album on worldwide charts at that time selling 71,000 copies in the US and 21,965 in the UK in its first week of release to debut on The Billboard 200 at number 3 and number 1 on Billboard’s Rock and Alternative charts. Since its release, Fever has sold over 500,000 copies worldwide and has achieved gold certification in the UK so far.

Bittersweet Memories Lyrics

You turn me off at the push of a button
And you pretend that I don’t mean nothing
I’m not a saint that’s easy to tell
But guess what honey you ain’t no angel

You like to scream, use words as a weapon
Well go ahead take your best shot woman
I wanna leave you it’s easy to see
But guess what honey it’s not that easy

We get so complicated ..complicated
This finger’s for our memories

So rip my pictures from your wall
Tear them down and burn them all
Light the fire, walk away
There’s nothing left to say so
Take the ashes from the floor
Bury them to just make sure
That nothing more is left of me
Just bittersweet memories
Memories

I wanna run ‘n’ escape from your prison
But when I leave I feel something is missing
I’m not afraid that’s easy to tell
This can’t be heaven it feels like I’m in hell
You’re like a drug that I can’t stop taking
I want more and I can’t stop craving
I still want you it’s easy to see
But guess what honey you’re not that good for me

We get so complicated ..complicated
This finger’s for our memories

So rip my pictures from your wall
Tear them down and burn them all
Light the fire, walk away
There’s nothing left to say so
Take the ashes from the floor
Bury them to just make sure
That nothing more is left of me
Just bittersweet memories

Just bittersweet memories

We get so complicated ..complicated
This finger’s for our memories

We get so complicated ..complicated, complicated

So rip my pictures from your wall
Tear them down and burn them all
Light the fire, walk away
There’s nothing left to say so
Take the ashes from the floor
Bury them to just make sure
That nothing more is left of me
Just bittersweet memories

Whoa-oh-oh-oh -x3
There’s nothing left to say

Bullet For My Valentine - Fever - Cover
