Watch the track’s lyric video below. “That’s The Spirit”, the band’s Columbia Records debut, will be released Friday, September 11.
In just a single day, BRING ME THE HORIZON’s fervent worldwide fanbase triggered simultaneous Twitter trends for “True Friends” in the U.S., U.K., Australia and several European countries with #TrueFriends. “True Friends” is the third new track to be unveiled from “That’s The Spirit”; previously released songs include the album’s lead single “Throne”, which sits Top 20 at Active Rock radio this week, and “Happy Song”.
“That’s The Spirit” is an 11-track, exhilarating ride bursting with huge riffs, soaring vocals and stadium filling monster tracks. The album, which lead singer Oli Sykes recently told NME is “a celebration of depression,” was recorded this spring in Santorini, Greece at Black Rock Studios, which the band discovered by Googling “world’s most amazing studios.” “That’s The Spirit” was mixed in London, mastered in New York and produced by Sykes and the band’s Jordan Fish.
