Bring Me The Horizon have released a new song/video in the form of 'Medicine' ahead of the release of their next album amo, which is out on January 25.
In contrast to its first two singles 'Mantra' and 'Wonderful Life', the new song heads down a straight pop route devoid of the same groovy riffs we've heard so far, but still remaining a catchy song for what it is.
The accompanying music video is a very surreal and creepy 3D animation by Extraweg, whose Instagram page you can go and check out if you're a fan of the style.

In a recent interview with Music Week, both vocalist Oli Sykes and keyboard player Jordan Fish weighed in on the state of rock music in 2019, saying that the art of writing good songs has been lost:
“In my opinion, it’s mostly shite. The people who are writing the songs aren’t good enough songwriters. I don’t love the music on Hot Hits UK but they are well-written songs and that’s something a lot of rock bands don’t appreciate. The craft of writing good songs is hard.”
“Any of these bands could write a big song but it means they’re just going to have to keep going and be so honest with themselves that it hurts. The amount of times you have to turn around and go, ‘This is dogshit’ when you’ve been working on it for six days… We could have half-written all these songs and then gone to see a producer, hoping he was going to sort them out. But one of the important things about being a rock band is that you do write your own music."
“It’s not a very rock thing to have people writing your songs or your lyrics for you. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with having a little bit of help, or some outside perspective, but a lot of our contemporaries now just have people straight-up writing songs for them. I find that bonkers.”
