Bring Me the Horizon’s ‘That’s The Spirit’ Scores One Billion Streams
Bring Me the Horizon have just scored one billion streams for their last album That’s the Spirit. The band took to Twitter to thank fans for the monumental accomplishment, creating a video to celebrate the occasion. Watch it below.
That’s the Spirit is the fifth album by the British rockers and it made a big splash when it was released in September of 2015. The effort debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart and on the U.K. album chart, while it topped the album chart in Australia and Canada.
The album spawned seven singles including “Drown,” “Happy Song,” “Throne” and “True Friends.” That’s the Spirit is a loose concept album rooted in life’s darker moods and marks a departure from the band’s metalcore roots. Frontman Oli Sykes said upon its release, “It’s a celebration of depression. A way of making light of it.” He added, “’That’s The Spirit’ – it’s quite a depressing phrase when you think about it – the sort of thing you only ever use when you know there’s no positive answer to the situation.”
Bring Me the Horizon will release their sixth album, Amo, on Jan. 11 2019. It features the song "Mantra," which the band released back in August. Oli Sykes said the song “felt like the first thing we wanted to show people upon our return.” Fans can pre-order the effort at this location. The group will kick off their 2019 tour in Nashville on Jan. 23. See their tour dates here.
