Bring me the Horizon have some True Friends

Posted by on August 24, 2015


Remember when Bring me the Horizon was a generic deathcore band signed to Earache? That’s ancient history now, with their move to Columbia and their forthcoming album That’s the Spirit, which will be out on September 11. The band have been making moves toward a more arena-ready sound, most notably on their last album, Sempiternal, and the first few songs we’ve already heard from the forthcoming album. This weekend, they unveiled a third track, “True Friends.” It’s another catchy single that will lead any fans of the  bands first few albums to cry “sellout,” but that’s beside the point, because it’s been years since they’ve written songs like “No Need for Introductions, I’ve Read About Girls Like You On the Backs of Toilet Doors.” If the three songs we’ve heard already are any indication, they’ve completed their transformation into a pop-metal act.
