Bring Me The Horizon have released an official video for their track “True Friends.”
The song is taken from the Sheffield metalcore band’s most recent album, That’s The Spirit, released in September.
“’True friends stab you in the front’ is an Oscar Wilde quote and it’s not about anyone in particular,” says frontman Oli Sykes, speaking recently to TeamRock. “It’s about some people more than it is others, but it’s all about one event in particular that spurred it on. It’s about people that I thought were my friends, my very good friends, doing something to me that I just didn’t see coming in a way I never thought they would.”
Sykes continues: “People say money changes you and fame changes you, I thought it never would but of course it does ’cause people change around you and start treating you differently so you have to change. I always used to see nothing but the best in people, and I still do now, I hate having to think negatively about people or be suspicious about their ulterior motives, but over the years you do to an extent ’cause even some of the best people I’ve known something as petty as money can change them.”
Bring Me The Horizon are on tour now in support of That’s The Spirit. You can watch the 7-minute video for “True Friends” below.
