Bring Me the Horizon Release New Song ‘Medicine,’ Go Full Pop
Bring Me the Horizon's new album, amo, will be out on Jan. 25. The band has already shared two new songs, "MANTRA" and "Wonderful Life" and have now debuted another new track, "Medicine," which sees them going in a full pop-centered direction. You can listen to it below.
Late last year, guitarist Jordan Fish and frontman Oli Sykes opened up about the current state of rock and its songwriting. "It's bad, generally," Fish told Music Week. "In my opinion, it's mostly shite. The people who are writing the songs aren't good enough songwriters. I don't love the music on Hot Hits U.K., but they are well-written songs, something a lot of rock bands don't appreciate. The craft of writing good songs is hard," he added.
Sykes weighed in, offering, "Any of these bands could write a big song, but it means they're just going to have to be so honest with themselves that it hurts. The amount of times you have to turn around and go, 'This is dogshit,' when you've been working on it for six days ... we could have half-written all these songs and then gone to see a producer, hoping he was going to sort them out. But one of the important things about being in a rock band is that you do write your own music."
Bring Me the Horizon's headlining tour with Thrice and The Fever 333 begins on Jan. 23. See the full list of dates here. You can pre-order Amo here.
