With now only a few weeks until Sempiternal is released, Bring Me The Horizon has showcased another example of what we can expect from the record. Sleepwalking sees frontman Oli Sykes abandon his as-close-to-white-noise-as-humanly-possible growls for a much cleaner sound, and the whole band seems to have followed suit.
The track is about as far away from their deathcore roots as possible, honing in on a far more mellow, ambient vibe. The drums seem to be doing whatever they want behind a keyboard that seems to take the dominant role in the song, save for the odd chuggy breakdown.
The clean-cut look of the group is a bit of a wig-out as well, for those who knew them back in the Pray For Plagues days. You’ll notice the group’s new member Jordan Fish can be seen on the keyboard. It’s still a bit strange not seeing Jona in the mix as well but, with Sykes at the helm, the group have once again delivered an epic video.
You can check out the clip below – it’s a change from the old days but it’s not too bad. And don’t stress – plenty of the standard Bring Me one-liners. Sempiternal is out Friday, 29th March.
