One of the most talked about rock bands in the UK, the multi-platinum selling Bring Me The Horizon, have just released a single entitled Wonderful Life from their highly anticipated album amo, which is out on January 25th through RCA. The track received it’s first play on Dan Carter’s Radio 1 show.
The album tracklisting was also exclusively revealed along with some special guests on the record which include Grimes, Rahzel and Dani Filth (who also features in the video).
The single comes hot on the tail of their debut release Mantra, which sat on Radio 1’s playlist for 8 weeks and has been streamed over 34 million times since it’s release in August.
The band’s frontman Oli says of the track “The lyrics for Wonderful Life were done freestyle in the studio. It’s stream of consciousness type stuff about getting old and out touch, being off tour & loving the mundane things in life, I guess because it’s so novel when your life is mainly spent on the road, things like weekly shops and mowing your lawn are quite nice- people who spend most of their lives away from home can surely relate. I guess on top of that there’s this inner crisis I have of being a boring person but still having a desire to go wild inside me every now and again.. but yeah all in all it’s mostly word vomit… but also some of my favourite lyrics.. the beginning is 100% legit and the irony was just too good, so we left it like that.”
A run of special UK shows kick off in November and include a two-night stint at Alexandra Palace – they last played this London venue in 2014. They will perform at the First Direct Arena in Leeds on November 24th.
Bring Me The Horizon are one of the most exciting and successful rock bands to emerge from the UK, selling over 2 million albums globally to date, playing sell out shows in over 40 countries, including two sold out nights at London’s O2 plus wowing a traditionally non rock crowd at Glastonbury Festival in 2016.
Poised now to release their sixth studio album, the band have spent the summer writing and recording in Los Angeles, with Oli Sykes and Jordan Fish handling production. What has transpired is one of their most exhilarating, genre crossing albums to date.
