Bring Me The Horizon 'Top 10 Statues That Cried Blood' by Harry Lindley

Rob Ulitski - 13th June 2024

Harry Lindley directs a cyberpunk-inspired promo for Bring Me The Horizon. 

The video for Top 10 Statues That Cried Blood is a dazzling display of futurist maximalism, taking place at a concert full of lightsaber battles, choreography and the band's performance. 

Breathlessly ambitious and captivating, it's a tour de force of creativity, anchored by cinematic vignettes and a rip-roaring performance.

"We wanted to fuse the look of music videos from the early 2000’s - Papa Roach, System of a Down, Foo Fighters - with a cross-section of references from science fiction - Dune, Tron, Blade Runner, Star Wars - to create a dizzying, and at times surreal, mash up of styles and tropes," Lindley explains. 

"The framing device of a telepathic girl re-experiencing the concert millenia later is a take on the album art, which features her and her robot friend M-8. In our video this is R-8, a later model.

"Much of the interactive elements were built on set, including the stage, stairs and walkways. This allowed the band, the stunt actors and dancers to have a real environment to perform in. In post production, we expanded the warehouse and the crowd to create a much greater sense of scale."
