Bring Me the Horizon Release New Song ‘Nihilist Blues’ With Pop Singer Grimes
Bring Me the Horizon's new song, "Nihilist Blues," which features pop singer Grimes, has been released. You can listen to the stream below.
The track is taken from the band's highly anticipated sixth album, Amo, which is set to be released tomorrow (Jan. 25). Pre-orders are on sale now. Bring Me previously released four songs from the record: "MANTRA," "Wonderful Life" (ft. Cradle of Filth's Dani Filth), "Medicine" and "Mother Tongue." While the former two take rock notes from their previous album That's the Spirit, the latter two are arguably Bring Me's most pop-centered songs to date.
"We didn't really know what we wanted, but we just knew we wanted to be different and we wanted to still be Bring Me the Horizon," explained frontman Oli Sykes on the band's sound evolution. "But make people feel the things they felt with us in different ways and try to do it sonically different, and it took a while to find that sound and stuff 'cause I think for me, I love the fact that I can sing now and I can write these lyrics that have important messages and they can almost stick in people's heads so that they're easier to get across and stuff. So, for us, we still wanted those huge choruses and all that stuff, but I feel like we had so much experimentation in us that we've been dying to do for maybe the last five years or so."
