British rockers BRING ME THE HORIZON will release their new album, “Amo”, on January 11, 2019 through RCA/Sony. The follow-up to 2015’s “That’s The Spirit” was produced by the band’s own Oli Sykes and Jordan Fish.
Of the new disc, Oli says: “‘Amo’ is a love album that explores every aspect of that most powerful emotion. It deals with the good the bad and the ugly, and as a result we’ve created an album that’s more experimental, more varied, weird, and wonderful than anything we’ve done before.”
On Tuesday, BRING ME THE HORIZON released a new single called “Mantra”, with Sykes telling BBC Radio 1 about the track: “It felt like the first thing we wanted to show people upon our return.”
Sykes said the music he and his bandmates are working on is “completely different” from “That’s The Spirit”, hinting, “We want to be a heavy band, but not in the way you think of heavy.”
Prior to the new song’s premiere, BRING ME THE HORIZON launched a mysterious campaign, including a billboard reading “Do You Want To Start A Cult With Me?” — a line that ended up being one of the lyrics in “Mantra”.
The promotional campaign also saw the band starting a web site, joinmantra.org, with an initial message that read: “There are those who will say that only after a lifetime of sacrifice and good doing can the soul be free — that God demands conditions in the freedom and that some have the power of making mankind slaves.”
