Bring Me The Horizon are undoubtedly taking inspiration from pop music for their upcoming album amo. One fan decided to bring the new songs back to their hardcore roots with their own version of “Medicine.”
Youtuber Nik Nocturnal took the latest Bring Me The Horizon track and put it in the style of their “older and heavier albums.” The video has more than 50 thousand views so far, and many commenters on YouTube seem to actually prefer the cover to the original.
“I know some people didn’t like That’s The Spirit… and there’s a lot of poppier stuff on this album, too, but there’s also a lot of experimentation and vibe and atmosphere, which has a darker tone in places,” Sykes told Kerrang.
“As a fan I’d be excited about this album. It’s definitely gonna take a few listens, not because you won’t like it at first, but because the songs have got so much going on. They’re a lot deeper than anything we’ve ever written before,” he continued.
amo drops Jan. 25 and is available for preorder now.
Check out the cover for yourself below, and compare it to the original version of the song.
In addition to releasing the new album, the band are also taking the record our on the road, where they’ll be headlining their U.S. run of their First Love World Tour.
