Bring Me the Horizon Unveil ‘Drown’ Video
If late night TV were more like Bring Me the Horizon's video for their new stand-alone single 'Drown,' you might have a few more viewers tuning in to check out the carnage. The band adds their own twisted spin to the talk show performance formula with their latest clip.
The video starts off innocently enough, with Bring Me the Horizon appearing in matching tan suits in front of a brightly lit backdrop spelling out BMTH. And the look is eerily similar to many of the talk and variety show performances of the '60s.
But this is no ordinary performance, as the camera pulls back to reveal the audience is mostly made up of gown-wearing hospital patients. Drummer Matt Nicholls has a mid-song "transformation," and after a brief "off-air" moment featuring an awesome Muzak edition of 'Drown,' we return to find an exorcism taking place. 'Drown' is definitely one of the more entertaining clips in recent memory.
The video is just the start of big things to come for Bring Me the Horizon, who just booked their biggest show ever that will take place at London's Wembley Arena on Dec. 5. Four days later on Dec. 9, the group will officially release the 'Drown' single via Epitaph. Pre-orders are currently being taken here.
Bring Me the Horizon have set aside time in early 2015 to begin work on the follow-up to their exceptional 2013 album, 'Sempiternal.' With 'Drown' bridging the gap between albums, look for bigger things to come.
