In a new interview, Oli Sykes confirms that the band are “scheming” up new music with YUNGBLUD.
On July 25, YUNGBLUD tweeted Sykes and Jordan Fish. The not-so-subtle tweet seemingly hinted that a collaboration between the two British artists may be in the works.

Now, Sykes has officially confirmed that a BMTH and YUNGBLUD collab is in the works. Bring Me The Horizon were recently interviewed by Jack Saunders for MTV Rocks Chart. As soon as Saunders brings up the Twitter exchange, Sykes cryptically confirms the news.
“Yeah we’ve been scheming, we’ve got something coming,” he says.
Saunders then asks where the collab will fit in Bring Me The Horizon’s upcoming music. Bring Me The Horizon are currently working on four different EPs that will be unveiled over the next year. Each release will fall under the album name Post Human. Both “Parasite Eve” and 2019’s “Ludens” will be on the first release.
Fish then elaborates on where the YUNGBLUD collab will likely appear on their upcoming releases. As well, he confirms that BMTH’s new music will include even more guests.
“I think we might kinda like theme our guests a bit more around what’s going on with each EP,” he continues. “When we get into the other EPs, it’ll give us a chance to maybe get some other people on who are a bit more left-field or a bit more out of the box for our band.”
Fish further shares that BMTH will likely group their future collabs based on the overall sound for each EP.
“Cause we’re gonna have like probably four different kinda EPs with different vibes it gives us a bit more of an opportunity,” Fish says. “Whereas on amo, we had three guests there from completely different worlds.”

BMTH and YUNGBLUD have done various collaborations over the years, but have never collaborated together. Both acts have worked with Halsey in the past. Halsey is featured on BMTH’s latest EP and their co-written collab “Experiment On Me” is on the Birds of Prey soundtrack.
YUNGBLUD has previously shared his love for BMTH and their music. Following the release of amo, YUNGBLUD shared a tweet praising the band.
