BMTH confirm a ‘Sempiternal’ era remix with Jeris Johnson is on the way
Over the years, Jeris Johnson has grown in popularity thanks to his viral remixes on TikTok. Back in January, we saw Johnson take his work to the next level when he teamed up with Papa Roach for “Last Resort (Reloaded).” The explosive remix allowed both Papa Roach and fans to revisit the iconic track 20 years after its release. In fact, Jacoby Shaddix and Johnson exclusively told Alternative Press just how one of Johnson’s remixes led to the collab.
Then, last month, Jeris Johnson debuted a new remix that quickly caught the attention of Oli Sykes. In mid-February, Johnson posted his own take on the Sempiternal classic "Can You Feel My Heart" on TikTok. For his version, Johnson added in his musical flair and some new lyrics to make the 2013 track more his own.
Shortly after the remix was released, Oli Sykes came across it and shared his reaction in a TikTok duet. Sykes even teased a collaboration may be in the works in the video's caption.

Now, Bring Me The Horizon and Johnson have confirmed a remix of "Can You Feel My Heart" is officially on the way. This week, Sykes and Johnson posted another TikTok duet announcing the remix arrives on Friday, Mar. 5. In the new video, viewers can hear a clip of the upcoming song. Along with added bass and synths that elevate the nearly 8-year-old song, Johnson's vocals are also included in the new version.

Now, this wouldn’t be the first collab from Bring Me The Horizon in recent months. Back in October, they debuted their new EP POST HUMAN: SURVIVAL HORROR which features BABYMETAL, Amy Lee, Nova Twins and YUNGBLUD.
Late last month, Sykes confirmed BMTH are simultaneously working on their next three POST HUMAN EPs. Currently, there’s a “good chance” fans may get a taste of the material from all three releases soon.
“We’re just beginning really,” he said. “We’re actually working on parts two, three and four simultaneously and working on ideas from all the records. There’s a good chance that we might release songs from each before we release the next record.”
However, Sykes also revealed why it might be a while before Bring Me The Horizon release their next EP in full. As well, it looks like this second EP will be very different from SURVIVAL HORROR.
“We’ve literally started working on one song from the record, and whether that’s any good or will stay I don’t know,” he said. “Part one was very heavy and quite dark. For me, it all feels like a very low-frequency energy. It took a lot out of me and I don’t think I could do it again – not straight away, anyway. The next record is going to be emotional in a different way, it just has to be. ‘Emotional’ is the word, with higher emotions. Not necessarily happier.”
Just like Johnson, Bring Me The Horizon have also been very active on TikTok lately. More recently, they revealed just how they were able to sneak an elephant noise into their latest single “Teardrops.”
