The mighty Music For Nations today announce a very special 10th anniversary reissue of Bring Me The Horizon’s groundbreaking fourth globally acclaimed album ‘Sempiternal’.
Originally released in 2013, ‘Sempiternal’ is one of the most definitive metal albums of a generation. It smashed preconceptions with it’s trailblazing release and was both forward-thinking and innovative. It was also the perfect nod to their metal and post-hardcore roots; but with a fresh genre defining approach. It was the record that would catapult the band to global success on a grand scale. It opened the doors to stadium shows and appearances at some of the biggest and most diverse festivals in the world, namely Glastonbury, where they played for the first time in 2016.
Band frontman Oli Sykes adds “I feel like this is the album that changed everything for our band, both in commercial success terms and personal terms. I was struggling with addiction and my relationship with the band before this record was fractured and I felt the only way I could apologise for my actions was to knuckle down and pour everything into a record. This record brought our band closer than ever and for that it will always have a special place in my heart.”
To mark the decade of an album with a heritage and sonic veracity still firmly intact, a special 10th anniversary vinyl pressing, and cassette tape have been carefully fashioned to emphasise the music and underline the enigmatic artwork still steeped in symbology and mystique. An almost yin-yang black and white approach to the picture disc set and cassette features an inversion of the album’s original colour palette, and a zoetrope effect animation picture disc to bring the ornate beauty of the design to live on the turntable.
