On Oct. 14, Bring Me The Horizon finally announced their new EP POST HUMAN: SURVIVAL HORROR. The forthcoming release includes “Ludens,” “Parasite Eve” and “Obey,” their explosive collaboration with YUNGBLUD.

POST HUMAN: SURVIVAL HORROR is part of an anthology of EPs Bring Me The Horizon plan to release over the next year.

“We’ve just been winging it and recording from lockdown,” Oli Sykes previously shared. “Now we’re going to make four different records over the next year and they’ll all share the name POST HUMAN.”

This first EP, however, is a protest record. Sykes previously shared that each song is about the strong emotions we all feel during political unrest or times of injustice.

“So for the songs we are working on for this new record, we knew that they were going to be a bit more aggressive in nature,” Sykes said. “This first record is very much a protest record. It’s trying to capture the anger, sadness, frustration, fear, paranoia and everything I think we are all collectively going through right now.”

Earlier this week, BMTH teased the arrival of their forthcoming video for “Teardrops.” On Oct. 20, they shared an ominous behind-the-scenes photo of Sykes from the video shoot.

Then, on Wednesday, they confirmed that the new track and its cinematic new video are arriving on Oct. 22. The video appears to focus on Sykes as he deals with everyday pressures including stress, anxiety and addiction.

Since then, BMTH have shared various glimpses from the upcoming video. From Sykes struggling under water to watching rose petals wilt around him, it looks like the “Teardrops” video is going to be quite the experience.

Finally, on Thursday, Bring Me The Horizon unveiled the new song with the help of Annie Mac. Sykes tells the radio host that “Teardrops” is his favorite track off of POST HUMAN: SURVIVAL HORROR.

“This is my favorite tune off the album for sure,” he shares. “This song was meant to come out before ‘Obey’ and when we do this tune with Dom [YUNGBLUD], we had to release ‘Obey’ first to work out just boring stuff. I was really gutted because I was just so ready for the world to hear ‘Teardrops.’ It worked out, but ‘Teardrops’ is the most Bring Me The Horizon song we’ve wrote in so long. I think like since ‘Can You Feel My Heart?‘ and maybe ‘Sleepwalking‘ and ‘Drown,’ this just feels like Bring Me The Horizon in its purest form.”

He further shares that “Teardrops” is largely about how many people live today with technology.

“It’s definitely a lot about this year,” he shares. “Well, not just this year but the way things have been going. I think I have so much sympathy for kids that grow up in this age and are born into tech addiction which is just so normal for us these days. We wake up in the morning and no one really says, ‘you shouldn’t wake up first thing and the first thing you do is check your phone and look at bad news or social media.'”

“Teardrops” is available to stream below and check back at 11 A.M. PT/ 2 P.M. ET for the official video.

UPDATE: OCT. 22, 2020, 2:00 P.M. ET

Shortly following the release of “Teardrops” on Thursday, Bring Me The Horizon are back with their brand new video for the song.

In the video, Sykes disappears into his own version of a sunken place. As his consciousness struggles to escape from gloomy open water, his physical form battles the demons and addictions that plague him in his everyday life.

From technology rotting his brain to drugs and mental illness controlling all of his thoughts, the “Teardrops” video addresses the ongoing problems many people face in society today.
