BRING ME THE HORIZON are from Sheffield, England & formed together in 2004.

In an interview with NME Magazine, vocalist Olie Sykes explained how the lyrics for ‘DiE4u’ revisited his battles with addiction. Olie says:

“I’m tackling the song as if this unhealthy obsession I have is a relationship – almost like a mistress. I’ve learned over the past year while I’ve been recovering that when you’re in it, addiction is like you’re having an affair. You’re doing this thing behind everyone’s back, it’s a secret and it feels like you’re cheating and betraying people. I never saw it in that way. I just thought I was harming myself and not other people. I didn’t realize how much it can fuck up people’s trust.”

He continued: “This song is triumphant for me in a way because it’s me finally accepting that I’m not someone who can drink alcohol, smoke weed or do any of these things because I just have a problem with it and it always goes down the same road. That’s not something that I’ve been able to admit to myself. This song is a defiant stamp of me saying, ‘No, I’m making a choice now. I can’t keep doing this for the rest of my life because it’s only going to end up one way’.”

BMTH will also be performing along with Knocked Loose, Grandson & more on Thursday, October 6th at The Kia Forum in Inglewood.
