Frontman Oli Sykes directed, edited and starred in the single’s accompanying video which you can view below;
A press release states that he “draws on his personal relationship with depression channelling it into the visual representation of him drowning, which saw him spend a full day in an underwater tank when filming”.
Sykes said of the new track: “It is my favourite song off the record. I’m so excited to get this single out, it feels like a classic Bring Me The Horizon tune but without it feeling like anything we’ve done before. I feel like ‘Teardrops’ is some of the best work we’ve ever done, musically and lyrically as a whole.”
Last week, BMTH confirmed details of their ‘Post Human’ UK arena tour, which is due to kick off in September 2021.
The tour is set to visit Glasgow, Cardiff, Sheffield, Birmingham and London next year, with the shows reportedly set to be the band’s “only UK dates” in 2021.
Speaking to NME in back in June, frontman Oli Sykes said of ‘Post Human’: “The idea behind ‘Post Human’ is looking at how we’ve stepped out of evolution and the food chain. If we can do that, then we can take responsibility for what we’ve done to the planet and become something better than what humans are right now.”
