Alert! This is not a Glam post. Rather, it's a post about a modern band I love: Bullet For My Valentine. The band is coming back soon with a new album called Fever and they recently gave away an album track "Begging for Mercy" free via Tweet. Or something like that. I just waited for the song to hit YouTube and then I listened.
Anyway, here's the clip so check it out. I know some of you guys dig this band. I've seen Bullet For My Valentine live before - but I'm still looking forward to them and Slash the most at Rock on the Range. Check out "Begging for Mercy" and give me your opinion. Don't worry - more Glam tomorrow!
