A 200-page book chronicling photographer James Sharrock's 10-year period with Bullet For My Valentine will be released, but he needs fans' help to do it. Sharrock is raising funds through Crowdfunder to do a limited print run of 1000 editions of the book, which is called The Poison To Venom.
He told Blabbermouth.net, “As a music photographer, COVID-19 resulted in the loss of my income. The music industry has ground to a halt for 12 months, meaning I've had none of my regular work, but it's given me the time to go back through my archives which gave me the idea for this project that I'm really excited to share with you.”
Sharrock added, “Between 2005 and 2015, I shot many features and we traveled the world together. I even directed two music videos — for 'Raising Hell' and 'Army Of Noise'. The Poison To Venom documents two stories: the story of a band, and a story about people. I was a witness to Bullet's incredible rise to fame — from tiny venues to top billing at festivals to magazine front covers. It was a rollercoaster, and I hope the book brings fans along for the ride they went on during this time . . . “
The book's intro was written by Bullet For My Valentine frontman Matt Tuck.
