After the release of Bring me the Horizon’s first post-Sempiternal single and music video “Drown” they announced that another new track would be out today. The new track called “Don’t Look Down” has been highly anticipated since “Drown” sounded a bit different from what were used to hearing from Bring Me the Horizon. We even hear Oli Skykes’ beautiful voice sing, not scream! That in itself is huge! Are they going with a new sound altogether on this new album, or is “Drown” just experimental?
Well your questions have been answered, k ind of, with the release of their new song “Don’t Look Down”. This track features Vulgatron from Foreign Beggars so it has some interesting techno beats which add a new element and give us a little flashback to some remixes on the band’s earlier albums. Even though this song has a different sound than “Drown” it is clear that Bring Me the Horizon is trying something new. All of the band’s albums have a sound of their own, but since Sempiternal took off the way it did, it is a little surprising that they’re going to stay on the same track they were before. On the interview from BBC Radio One, Oli Sykes says “I guess we kind of wanted to show the world whats coming next.”
Both songs amazing though, and the band is definitely on to something great. Their single “Drown” will be available December 9; until then you can check it out along with the music video on Youtube or right here! Since “Don’t Look Down” has been released only on BBC Radio One, you’ll have to click the link below to hear that one, but after there is an interesting interview with Oli Sykes that you will definitely want to listen to for some new information!
