"True Friends" is a song by British rock band BRING ME THE HORIZON. It was released as the third single from the band's fifth studio album "That's the Spirit". Musically a rock song, it has been more specifically described as post-hardcore and emo. It was released on 25 August 2015 on the bands official Vevo account.
"That's The Spirit" marks a surprising change in BRING ME THE HORIZON's sound and Oliver Sykes told The Pulse Of Radio how it came about. "Really, we were wrapping up 'Sempiternal', and we just felt like we'd progressed a lot just in that short space of time since releasing 'Sempiternal' and touring it, so, yeah, I guess when we finished the campaign, we just really felt like we had a big opportunity. Like, 'Sempiternal' really got us out to the public a lot more than the previous record and stuff, and it felt like people were waiting to see what we did next and people were really hungry for it, you know what I mean? So we just wanted to take the opportunity and really smash it out of the park, I guess."
"That's The Spirit" not only marks a change in the band's sound but also has a concept behind it.
Sykes explained recently: "It's a celebration of depression. A way of making light of it. That's the spirit — it's quite a depressing phrase when you think about it — the sort of thing you only ever use when you know there's no positive answer to the situation."
BRING ME THE HORIZON recently launched a North American headlining tour that stops in Denver, Colorado on Tuesday (October 20) and continues in Europe, see the dates below. On Saturday the 14th they will visit Arenan and Stockholm here in Sweden.
Today's tune "True Friends" is taken from That's The Spirit. The official music video, dubbed as a "short film", was uploaded to the band's Vevo on November 5, 2015. It was directed by Oliver Sykes and featured British actor Steve Oram ("Sightseers", "Bad Education", "The World's End"). The Music Video was produced by 12 Inch Media.
