Bring Me The Horizon Premieres New Song “MANTRA” on BBC Radio 1
- British rock band Bring Me The Horizon premiered a new song “MANTRA” on BBC Radio 1.
The song is the lead single from from their forthcoming sixth studio album "Amo" It was written by Bring Me The Horizon and produced by Jordan Fish and Oliver Sykes.
The new album is set to be released on January 11, 2019. It is their first LP since 2015s "That's the Spirit".
In August, before releasing the song, the band contributed cryptic posters in major cities throughout the world with the message "do you wanna start a cult with me?".
But during this time the band themselves have not acknowledged their involvement with the campaign publicly.
Each poster provided a unique phone number and a website address.
The website provided a brief message titled "An Invitation To Salvation" and shows the date of 21 August 2018.
The phone lines provided varied audio messages that changed frequently with an audio clip of a new music from the band.
On August 21st, the band released the new single "Mantra".
- Frontman Oliver Sykes said of the song in an interview with Annie Mac;
"This song came very late in the writing process because we wrote loads of cool stuff and loads of different things and everyday we were like “what are we going to show people first” because we know how this works, we want to always change what we do and we always want to write something new to change it up, but we also don’t want to alienate everyone that’s joined us along the way and that’s supported us from the start.
We want to do heavy in a completely different way. We wanna do catchy in a completely different way. I mean this is the hardest record we ever wrote and these songs are the hardest songs because we really challenged ourselves to do something completely different and not lean on anything we’ve done before."
