What are Bring Me The Horizon up to?

Posted by on July 6, 2015

It would be false to say that Bring Me The Horizon have remained silent since the touring cycle for 2012’s Sempiternal has wound down. In fact, the UK metalcore band have released two songs in the last year, “Drown” and “Don’t Look Down.” There’s no official word on when the follow up to Sempiternal will be released, but it seems like the band’s got something up their sleeves. Throughout the past week, all the members of the band started posting the image that you see to the right, a rather iconic looking (and pretty emo) image of an umbrella with rain coming from beneath the umbrella.

In addition to the band members (some of whom have gotten tattoos of said umbrella), the image started popping up around London. Then yesterday (5), the band posted a short 15-second video on their social media that featured wind and a building crescendo accompanying the image. According to the band’s Wikipedia page, fans reversed the video, and you can hear frontman Oli Sykes saying “that’s the spirit.” There’s still no official word out of the BMTH camp as to what’s happening, but we’ll find out soon enough. The band will be playing the Reading and Leeds festivals as direct support for Metallica at the end of August.
