Bring Me The Horizon: Can You Feel My Heart - new video

BRING ME THE HORIZON, a band much loved by our treasured youth, have unleashed yet another new video; right on the heels of ‘Go To Hell, For Heaven's Sake’, shot and edited by Danny Todd, comes 'Can You Feel My Heart'. Both tunes come off the band's celebrated fourth album, ‘Sempiternal’, released through RCA Records/Epitaph Records in April 2013. ‘Sempiternal’ can be streamed in its enjoyable entirety here (YouTube), courtesy Epitaph Records. The first BMTH album recorded with keyboardist Jordan Fish was produced by Terry Date and mixed by David Bendeth. ‘Sempiternal’ has conquered UK Rock & Metal Album Chart and Australian Albums Chart (ARIA) and has debuted at number 11 on the Billboard Top 200 with first week U.S. sales of over 27,500 copies. The album has also performed very well throughout Europe. Buy it here (BMTH store), from Amazon or via iTunes:

 “While many have tried, few bands have merged metalcore with electronic influences quite like BRING ME THE HORIZON, who complete their transition from faceless deathcore band to something altogether more interesting with their fourth album, ‘Sempiternal’. … What makes BRING ME THE HORIZON's evolution so interesting isn’t so much the change in their sound, but how they got there. Rather than adding and subtracting elements wholesale, it feels as though the band has been tinkering little by little, adjusting the ratios to achieve just the right balance of ambience and aggression. Where other bands might have synths slapped on top of their sound, here they feel like they’re part of the foundation of the songs, creating a soundscape for the rest of the elements to drift through instead of around,” [wrote Gregory Heaney, AllMusic – more here]

Formed in 2004 in Sheffield, England, BRING ME THE HORIZON's interesting name was reportedly inspired by the 2003 Disney's "Pirates of the Caribbean" (specifically by Captain Jack's final line: “Now, bring me that horizon.”). That same year, the band released their debut EP, ‘This Is What The Edge Of Your Seat Was Made For’, through Australian label Thirty Days Of Night. Reissued in 2005 by Visible Noise, the EP peaked at number 41 on the U.K. Album Charts. Their debut album, ‘Count Your Blessings’, followed in 2006 in United Kingdom through Visible Noise and a year later through Earache Records in the United States. Fronted by easily recognizable Oliver Sykes, Sheffield metalcore merchants recorded their second LP with Swedish record producer Fredrik Nordström; issued in 2008, ‘Suicide Season’ entered the Billboard Top 200 at number 107. Again turning to Nordström, BMTH's third full-length followed in 2010; ‘There Is A Hell, Believe Me I've Seen It. There Is A Heaven, Let's Keep It A Secret’, performed outstandingly well on the charts; it charted at number 1 in Australia and United Kingdom, at number 2 on the U.S. Rock Albums Chart, and debuted at position number 17 on the Billboard Top 200. The album sold 20,000 copies in the United States alone in its first week:
“The twist is that they [BRING ME THE HORIZON] don’t bloat the songs out with breakdown after breakdown, but instead break up the songs with quieter, plaintively atmospheric passages. This helps to combat the “breakdown fatigue” that plagues so many albums, allowing the heaviest parts of the songs to have the proper impact. ‘There Is A Hell…’ finds BRING ME THE HORIZON at the top of their game, and its lack of over indulgent production makes it an album that’ll not only please fans of the band, but may surprise fans of bands like CONVERGE who are interested in seeing what the kids are up to these days,” [wrote Gregory Heaney, AllMusic – more here]
