Global phenomenon Bring Me The Horizon resume the next chapter of their hugely successful journey with the release of a new single entitled ‘sTraNgeRs’ out July 6th Via RCA. The track is the latest single to be released from their critically acclaimed POST HUMAN series.
Oli said “The song came out of a long writing trip in LA, and as soon as the lyric ‘we’re just a room full of strangers’ came it took on such a deeper double meaning – how it would feel to be performing it live as that’s what it is.. all strangers connecting on this mad level.. and that it was like rehab..
Coming out of lockdown and the pandemic, everyone is recovering from something and I’m so aware that so many people struggle daily with differing traumas, and just wanted to stress that they’re not in this alone… and we’re a community here to help each other”
The band wanted to share these very personal mental health journeys to help and inspire others and asked fans if they would like to anonymously contribute and play a part in this very special process. The response was overwhelming and these stories formed the narrative behind the official video and some very unique short form clips, which have been revealed across the band’s socials this past week. These shorts formed the haunting and cinematic mini film that accompanies ‘sTraNgeRs’, which gives a surreal glimpse into this very personal world.
Bring Me The Horizon have had an exhilarating few years with a UK Number 1 for the first instalment of their EP POST HUMAN: SURVIVAL HORROR, a much talked about performance with Ed Sheeran at The Brits in February, as well as a plethora of prominent features with the aforementioned Ed Sheeran, Tom Morello, Machine Gun Kelly and Sigrid to name a few. They now firmly sit in the top 500 most streamed artists globally on Spotify and their year high continues with a special curated festival in Malta that took place in May, the upcoming release of EP two and a headline appearance at Reading & Leeds Festival in August.
With another year of impressive achievements under their collective belt, Bring Me The Horizon look set to continue their successful mission to put heavy music on the map on a global level and beyond!
