Bullet for my Valentine bassist leaves band

Another band having another band member call it a day and this time it’s Bullet for my Valentine’s Jay James that’s the one making headlines. The band announced “with regret” that Jay would be leaving and “no longer a member of the band“. The statement posted via the bands facebook page signed off by the remaining members of the band continues to explain that they will be announcing a replacement for the 4 strings when “the time is right“, something that looks to be in the near future as the band are known to be currently in the studio working on their fifth full length record.

Bullet for my Valentine also raise expectations with some hints of other big things in 2015 also by going on to explain that they are currently working on some “exciting things going on behind the scenes“. We at Rebellious Noise wish the boys in Bullet and their now former member Jay the best of luck in the future.

The full facebook statement issued by the band is below;

To all our fans around the World,

It is with regret that Bullet For My Valentine has to announce that Jay James is no longer a member of the band. Jay has been a part of this band for well over 12 years and part of our lives forever, and we’re gonna miss him as much as we know you guys are too. We wanna wish him all the best and success with whatever he chooses to do next and will always be grateful for his contribution and sacrifices he made for this band.

We’ll announce a replacement for Jay when we feel the time is right, but until then we’re gonna be busy and focused recording our next record and making sure its the best album we’ve ever made.

2015 is already shaping up to be a massive year for us with lots of exciting things going on behind the scenes which we’ll be announcing as soon as we can.

Thank you all for your continued support.

Matt, Padge, Moose.
