The lead singer took to Twitter to further elaborate the meaning behind one of the tracks, “i don’t know what to say.”
“This song is for my friend, Aidan, who sadly lost his battle to cancer & also for anyone who has gone through this hell, don’t you think it’s incredible how brave, strong, and fearless people can become when dealt with such a soul crushing fate?” Sykes wrote on Twitter.

I lost my mom to cancer when I was 15 and your music is what got me through it. I can’t tell you how much this song touched me, it’s beautiful and so true. It’s amazing how strong they can be even when faced with the hardest news ever. Thank you for making it ?

Amo is English act’s sixth full-length album that’s taken a more pop approach.
Last week, BMTH dropped the Grimes-featuring “nihilist blues.” It was preceded by amojams “mother tongue,” “medicine,” “wonderful life” (featuring Cradle Of Filth‘s Dani Filth) and the album’s cult-inspired first single, “MANTRA.”
