Bring Me The Horizon release new single ‘Wonderful Life’
Multi-platinum-selling rock band, Bring Me The Horizon, have today released their new single ‘Wonderful Life’, which received its first play on the Radio 1 Rock Show with Daniel P. Carter last night. The track is taken from their highly anticipated album amo, which is out on January 25th through RCA.
The album tracklist has also been revealed containing a list of special guests including; Grimes, Rahzel and Dani Filth (who also appears in the video for ‘Wonderful Life’).
The single follows recent single, ‘Mantra’, which sat on Radio 1’s playlist for eight weeks and has been streamed over 34 million times since debuting in August.
The band’s frontman Oli says of the track, “the lyrics for ‘Wonderful Life’ were done freestyle in the studio. It’s stream of consciousness type stuff about getting old and out of touch, being off tour & loving the mundane things in life, I guess because it’s so novel when your life is mainly spent on the road, things like weekly shops and mowing your lawn are quite nice – people who spend most of their lives away from home can surely relate. I guess on top of that there’s this inner crisis I have of being a boring person but still having a desire to go wild inside me every now and again.. but yeah all in all it’s mostly word vomit… but also some of my favourite lyrics.. the beginning is 100% legit and the irony was just too good, so we left it like that.”
A run of UK shows kick off in November, including a two-night stint at Alexandra Palace in London where they last played in 2014.
Bring Me The Horizon have sold over 2 million albums globally to date and played sell-out shows in over 40 countries, including two sold out nights at London’s O2 Arena.
