Bring Me The Horizon have just released the official music video for their single “mother tongue” that is both touching and a bit, uh, messy.

Check out the full video below!

The track comes from the band’s sixth album, amo, released back in January of this year.

Speaking with Zane Lowe earlier this year, Oli Sykes tells the Beats 1 DJ that the track—which follows previous singles “medicine,” “wonderful life” (featuring Cradle Of Filth‘s Dani Filth) and “MANTRA“—was inspired by meeting his wife.

“It’s probably the most gushing, out there, just straight-up love song we’ve ever written,” Sykes explains. “This was one of the easier ones to write because it was positive. It’s about when I first met my new wife, and she’s from Brazil.

“She didn’t speak so much English,” the musician continues. “She talked a lot better than my Portuguese, but from the very start, we had a really, really strong connection, and it was just a crazy time. And this song’s just talking about those experiences, which they just stick in my head. So, that was really one of the easier ones to write about.”

You can check out the gravity-defying video below!

Written by Whitney Shoemaker

Whitney is your definition of pop punk trash. If she's not jamming to State Champs or Grayscale, then she's probably out enjoying the finer things or working a show for Fearless Records as a Street Team Leader. She's a realist and an optimist, calling the city of Columbus her home. A huge fan of naps, Whitney often falls asleep in a city that doesn't. She's not hard to please, finding joy in discovering new bands or playing Everlong on the late night radio. Working at Alt Press and breaking ground in the music scene have always been a dream of hers, telling herself at an early age she was down for losing it all to make that happen! Now the weekend writer at AP, Whitney is prepared to be noticed and eager to contribute to the scene. If you catch her at a concert feel free to stick around, make small talk, or discuss her overuse of State Champs lyrics and song titles in her bio.
