The outlandish music video focuses on the anonymous stories of fans, coming together to remind us that no one is truly alone.
British rock band Bring Me The Horizon have released their new single “sTraNgeRs” along with a supernatural music video partly influenced by stories shared by the band’s fan base.
“The song came out of a long writing journey in Los Angeles,” lead singer Oli Sykes explained to BMTH’s official website. “As soon as the lyrics ‘we’re just a room full of strangers’ came on, it took on such a deeper double meaning – what it would be like to play it live because that’s what it is. .all the strangers are connecting on this crazy level..and that was like rehab..”
“Coming out of lockdown and the pandemic, everyone is recovering from something and I’m so aware that so many people are struggling with different traumas on a daily basis, and I just wanted to emphasize that they’re not alone in this. .and we are a community here to help each other.
After asking fans if they’d like to anonymously contribute personal stories, the band used many of the responses to shape the raw, transcendent narrative that unfolds in the music video.
‘sTraNgeRs’ is the last part of BMTH’s POST HUMAN series, a collection of four EPs, the first of which is POST HUMAN: SURVIVAL HORROR which the group released in October 2020. Bring Me The Horizon’s last non-collaborative single was “DiE4u,” which landed last September.
