Bring Me The Horizon recently dropped their newest track “Ludens”. The track is featured in the newest Hideo Kojima game Death Stranding. We’ve known the time constraints Kojima Productions placed on BMTH to submit the song and it was no cakewalk.
Now, Bring Me The Horizon have released a behind-the-scenes look at the making of “Ludens” and it makes the production even more impressive. Especially considering it was without the involvement of guitarist Lee Malia.
For the majority of the video, we see Oli Sykes and keyboardist Jordan Fish in a hotel room in Ukraine. Sykes states how limited of a time they had to submit the song.
“We’ve been given about five days to write a song, for the new game Death Stranding.” Sykes states. “We started writing about two days ago. We’re on tour at the moment. We’re currently in Ukraine. We’ve been doing a tour around Europe. And here we got kinda like basically told if we can’t deliver a song for the 20th, then we can’t be on the game.”
The video then shows the hotel room Sykes is laying down some vocals in and he describes the situation in further detail.
“So we made this lovely hotel studio.” Sykes displays. “It’s a Jordan Fish design. On a computer that can’t really handle many plug-ins or much else. But, we’re getting there. And we keep getting complaints to shut the fuck up every two minutes. But, I think we got something pretty cool.

Bring Me The Horizon recently stated that they would like to release shorter records more frequently and maybe the time constraints for “Ludens” played a part in that. For all Bring Me The Horizon info, head here.
