“What the heck is up with all the umbrellas?”
If you’re a fan of Bring Me the Horizon, this was probably your thought at some point in time during the past week and it doesn’t look like it will be going away any time soon.
Today, the band took to Facebook to post a short video which may or may not feature the first taste of new music from the British band.
While the video doesn’t feature vocals or even real instrumentals, it does sound like it’s the introduction to a track. What track exactly, we probably won’t find out until they decided to release the complete song.
Check out the teaser video below.
Last week, BMTH frontman Oli Sykes began posting some cryptic messages in which he advised fans that if they happen to stumble across a poster featuring an umbrella emoticon, to take a picture of it and hashtag the image with the actual umbrella emoticon.
The cryptic message of course resulted in fans automatically assuming that it was linked to some kind of promotion for some new music. Those fans might have been onto something.
The umbrella tag-a-thon comes a couple of months after the band revealed that their long-awaited Wembley Arena DVD had been postponed once again. According to Facebook, the DVD is “now available” though some fans are complaining that their pre-orders still haven’t arrived.
