Welsh rockers Bullet For My Valentine are hot off the release of their latest album, Gravity.

The deluxe boxset edition of this thrashingly innovative album features an unexpected cover that’s now available on YouTube. The band’s take on Imagine Dragon’s smash hit “Radioactive” fits perfectly with their new direction and adds a heavy flare to a song that’s almost impossible to overplay. Almost.

Listen to the bonus track below:

The crossover makes a lot of sense with Bullet's newfound introduction of more synth and electronic elements but has received very mixed reviews from fans. Regardless, the band has noted their pride in their new direction and are continuing to push themselves by taking risks even after 20 years together.
