Oli Sykes' addiction troubles inspired him to record 'DiE4u'.
The 34-year-old singer has battled substance abuse over the years, and that experience has helped to inspire Bring Me The Horizon's new single.
He shared: "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 f*** up people’s trust."
Oli sees the new single as an acceptance of his personal troubles.
He told NME: "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.'"
Oli also revealed that his new work will have a more reflective tone.
He explained: "The topic of the next record is going to be about how as I’m getting older, to ask what are the life lessons that I’ve learned?
"What can I give to the next generation or younger people looking up and listening to us? What is it that I can teach? What are the truths I need to learn and accept myself?"
