Bring Me The Horizon release official video for ‘True Friends’

Bring Me The Horizon 2015 Promo

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.

Bring Me The Horizon share new song ‘Throne’ and release official video

Bring Me The Horizon have shared a new track, “Throne”, and released an accompanying video.

The song premiered last night via Annie Mac’s show on the UK’s BBC Radio 1, and is lifted from the Sheffield metalcore mob’s fifth studio album, That’s The Spirit, due for release on the 11th of September.

BMTH frontman Oli Sykes previously revealed that the new LP makes a deliberate move away from the sound of their 2013 album, Sempiternal, and sees him using a more clean vocal style: “This time round the challenge wasn’t just for people to be impressed that a screamer’s learned to sing. We had to come back with something that would be impressive for people who had no idea of the history of the band,” he says.

The full track list for That’s The Spirit is:

Bring_Me_The_Horizon_Thats_The_Spirit01. “Doomed”
02. “Happy Song”
03. “Throne”
04. “True Friends”
05. “Follow You”
06. “What You Need”
07. “Avalanche”
08. “Run”

Bring Me The Horizon confirm details of new studio album ‘That’s The Spirit’

Bring Me The Horizon 2015 Promo

Bring Me The Horizon have shared details of their forthcoming new album.

That’s The Spirit is set for release on the 11th of September. It is the Sheffield band’s fifth studio LP and the follow up to 2013’s Sempiternal.

Speaking in interview with NME, BMTH frontman Oli Sykes says that the album title is a “celebration of depression.”

“‘That’s the spirit’ is quite a depressing phrase when you think about it – the sort of thing you only ever use when you know there’s no positive answer to the situation,” he says.

Commenting on his more frequent use of a clean vocal style, Sykes adds: “This time round the challenge wasn’t just for people to be impressed that a screamer’s learned to sing.”

“We had to come back with something that would be impressive for people who had no idea of the history of the band.”

Bring Me The Horizon have been teasing new material in recent weeks, with new track “Happy Song” finally being revealed last week via BBC Radio 1’s Rock Show with Daniel P. Carter. Radio 1 are also set to debut another new track, “The Throne”, this Thursday 23rd of July at 7:20pm. The band had already shared a new song, “Drown”, in October of last year.

Bring Me The Horizon have worked on That’s The Spirit without an official producer, though keyboard player Jordan Fish has stepped in to the role when required: “We know enough now that we’re like, ‘Let’s just lay everything down the best way we can and get on with it,'” says Oli Sykes.

You can hear “Happy Song” and “Drown” via the streams below.
