Bring Me The Horizon have returned to their roots, channeling the Sempiternal era in their new single “Teardrops.”
The powerful new song was released on Thursday (Oct. 22) accompanied by a cinematic music video. Inspired by his struggles with depression, Oli Sykes can be seen in a tank of water which is metaphorically showcasing a tank of his ‘Tears.’
“It is my favorite song off the record,” said frontman Sykes. “I’m so excited to get this single out, it feels like a classic Bring Me The Horizon tune but without it feeling like anything we’ve done before. I feel like Teardrops is some of the best work we’ve ever done, musically and lyrically as whole.”
Sykes not only starred in the new music video but he also directed and edited the clip. Watch the video and hear the new song below.
“I’m running out of teardrops, let it hurt till it stops
I can’t keep my grip, I’m slipping away from me
Oh, God, everything is so fucked, but I can’t feel a thing
The emptiness is heavier than you think”
“Teardrops” is a track from their forthcoming new EP, Post Human: Survival Horror, which is scheduled to drop on October 30. The new EP will also feature already released tracks “Ludens,” “Parasite Eve” and their YUNGBLUD collaboration “Obey.”
The star-studded EP will also include new songs featuring Evanescence’s Amy Lee, BABYMETAL, Nova Twains and YUNGBLUD.
