Bring Me The Horizon Premieres New Song “Teardrops” on BBC Radio 1
- British rock band Bring Me The Horizon will release their upcoming EP “Post Human: Survival Horror” on October 30th.
The EP features guest appearances from Yungblud, Babymetal, Nova Twins and Amy Lee.
From the EP, the band released the fourth single “Teardrops” on October 22nd, along with a music video directed by Oliver Sykes.
The song received its first play during BBC Radio 1. Frontman Oliver Sykes told Annie Mac about the song in an interview, “Tech addiction is so normal for us these days. We're addicted to our phones, addicted to our computers, to media, the news. We wake up in the morning, and no one says “You shouldn't check your phone first thing in the morning, and just look at bad news or social media.” No one tells us that. That's like inviting thousands of chatty strangers to your bedroom at like 7:05. We're all in the same boat, so no one really likes talking about it. But the mental impact of the way we're living now, the way our society is, I don't think we've really seen the after effects or the repercussions of that and I think we will soon.”
- He continued, “This song is about how our moral compass is a little bit skewed because we're so numb to the bad news every single day and it's hard to know what we should actually do about that. I think it's very dangerous because when we hear these stories of oppression, tragedies or whatever. It's like: Do I scream? Do I shout? Do I tell someone? Do I fight about it or do I sit down? We're losing our touch with how to react to this stuff. I mean, I'm feeling that as a 33 year old man. You have kids, who, for them it's completely acceptable and normal to live how we're living right now. I don't know how to deal with that.”
