With a few days left before they are scheduled to hit the stage at the annual Reading and Leeds Festival in the United Kingdom, Bring Me the Horizon has returned with another new song from their upcoming new album. The new song is titled “True Friends” and finds frontman Oli Sykes relying on his clean vocals more than he has in previous songs. His clean vocals sound incredible as he sings “true friends stab you in the front,” but the new sound shouldn’t surprise fans of the band.
When the new record was first announced, the five-piece confirmed, in an interview, that the new record would sound completely different than their previous efforts; a nod to where they had recorded the new album. Listen to “True Friends” above.
“True Friends” will join previously released tracks “Happy Song” and “Throne” on the British band’s upcoming new album, That’s the Spirit. That’s the Spirit is set to be released on Sept. 11 through Columbia Records, domestically, while globally, it will be released through RCA. That’s the Spirit marks the first album BMTH will release through Columbia Records. Earlier this summer, the band confirmed that they had left their longtime United States record label, Epitaph, and signed with major label, Columbia.
In support of the new album, Bring Me the Horizon also announced that they will be hitting the road this fall. The tour will also feature Georgia-based metalcore band Issues. The tour will kick off on Oct. 1 at the Hard Rock Live in Orlando and wrap up on Oct. 20 at the Fillmore in Denver. The complete list of upcoming tour dates can be seen below.
