Sheffield genre-melding legends Bring Me The Horizon have dropped a music video for their ominous track ‘in the dark.’ The video stars Oscar, Emmy, and Golden Globe-winning actor, Forest Whitaker. The video, directed by frontman Oli Sykes, sees Whitaker undergo Matrix-like brain mapping.
“‘in the dark’ is my first ‘official’ directing effort,” Sykes explained in a statement. “We were in the midst of planning to shoot the video with a director in LA, 3 days before the shoot I got a call from Forest saying he was in London and available, so ignoring everyone who said it was impossible to make it happen in time, I called our videographer Brian and asked him if he wanted to help me direct a video. 2 days later we were shooting in London! It was a crazy, emotional few days and I was very lucky to bag an insanely talented crew to assist me.”
