“Shadow Moses”, the new single from British metalcore act BRING ME THE HORIZON, was premiered yesterday (Friday, January 4) on BBC Radio 1‘s “Rock Show” with Daniel P. Carter and can now be streamed in the YouTube clip below. The track will be released digitally next week.
“Shadow Moses” is the first single from BRING ME THE HORIZON‘s fourth album, “Sempiternal”, which will be released later in the year via RCA. The follow-up to 2010’s “There Is A Hell, Believe Me I’ve Seen It. There Is A Heaven, Let’s Keep It A Secret” was recorded in part at Angelic Studio in Banbury, Oxfordshire with producer Terry Date, who has previously worked with such acts as DEFTONES, PANTERA, SOUNDGARDEN and PRONG.
“I’ve never been so confident about an album,” BRING ME THE HORIZON frontman Oli Sykes told Kerrang! magazine. “It makes our last record just sound shit. We’re doing stuff we could never dreamed of doing before.”
BRING ME THE HORIZON performed “Shadow Moses” live for the first time when they played their only U.K. show of 2012 at the Alexandra Palace in London on November 10 as the co-headliners of the Vans Warped Tour with LOSTPROPHETS. Fan-filmed video footage of the performance can be seen below.
“There Is A Hell, Believe Me I’ve Seen It. There Is A Heaven, Let’s Keep It A Secret” sold 20,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 17 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD also entered the official chart in the U.K. at position No. 13.
