The band Bring Me The Horizon embraced once and for all to emo and its aspects with the release of sTraNgeRs , last Wednesday (06/07).
The single, which will be part of the band’s next album, titled Post Human, brings reflections on internal conflicts and mental health.
An interesting point of the clip is that it is illustrated by stories told by fans of the band, who sent anonymous reports to the group.
In material released to the press, Oliver Sykes , lead singer of the group, commented in more detail on the production of the song.
“The song went through a long writing period in Los Angeles, and as soon as we settled on the lyric ‘we’re just a room full of strangers’ came the name. It ended up taking on such a deep double meaning that we were left wondering what it would feel like to play it live, to see all the strangers connecting on this crazy level.
Sykes then made a comment about the public resuming activities, after an intense pandemic period. ” Coming out of confinement and the pandemic, everyone is recovering from something, there are so many people who struggle daily with different traumas, we just wanted to emphasize that they are not alone… and that we are a community to help each other” .
The band, which emerged in the early 2000s with a Deathcore-oriented sound , managed to establish itself as a group that still makes a heavy sound, but nodding towards more pop and experimental sounds, reaching an even larger audience. sTraNgeRs have sonic similarities to songs made by bands like Emery and My Chemical Romance.
It is worth remembering that the band will be in Brazil in December and is one of the main attractions of Knotfest, a festival organized by Slipknot. In all, there will be, so far, three shows on Brazilian soil: December 15th in Rio de Janeiro, at Jeunesse Arena, and in São Paulo on the 16th (Vibra São Paulo) and 18th (Knotfest).
