Bullet for My Valentine, often abbreviated as BFMV, are a Welsh heavy metal band from Bridgend, Wales, formed in 1998. The band is currently composed of Matthew Tuck (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Michael Paget (lead guitar, backing vocals), Jason Bowld (drums) and Jamie Mathias (bass guitar).

Former members include Michael Thomas, Jason James and Nick Crandle; the latter were on bass. They were formed under the name Jeff Killed John and started their music career by covering songs by Metallica and Nirvana. Jeff Killed John recorded six songs which were not released; two of these tracks were reworked later in their career as Bullet for My Valentine. A change of style from Jeff Killed John's style, led the band to change their name. In 2002, the band secured a five-album deal with Sony BMG. The band has stated that their music is influenced by classic metal acts such as Metallica, Iron Maiden and Slayer. The band is part of the Cardiff music scene.

Bullet for My Valentine's debut album "The Poison" was released on Oct. 3, 2005 in the UK and on Feb. 14, 2006 in the U.S. to coincide with Valentine's Day, in a nod to the band's name. The album entered the U.S. Billboard 200 at number 128. It was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America. The band made appearances at the Download Festival and Kerrang! XXV, and undertook a U.S. tour with Rob Zombie.

Bullet for My Valentine's second studio album, "Scream Aim Fire", was released on Jan. 29, 2008 and debuted at number four on the Billboard 200. The band's third album, "Fever", was released on Apr. 26, 2010 and debuted at number three on the Billboard 200. On Feb. 8, 2013 the band released their fourth studio album, "Temper Temper", which peaked at number 13 on the Billboard 200. On Aug. 14, 2015 the band released their fifth studio album, "Venom", which peaked at number 8 on the Billboard 200.

On Jun. 29, 2018 the band released their sixth studio album, "Gravity". The band has sold over one million albums in the U.S. and over 4 million albums worldwide and are the most-successful act in the Kerrang! Awards category of "Best British Band" with three wins.
