The band are giving video updates over on their YouTube channel as they plug away at new material and their latest sees Sykes recording vocal takes before going on a walk for some much needed fresh air.
Last week, the band announced they were working on new material tagged for a release tentatively titled BMTH8.
The new release will be the first new material from them since dropping their Music To Listen To… EP back in December.
Initially, they revealed the new project with an Instagram post followed by one from Sykes himself. Filmmaker Brian Cox also made a post discussing their plans as he is documenting their process.

✨hey world hope everyone is coping with the quarantine o.k, shit is upside down right now.. we were working on BMTH8 in the studio and obviously we had to abandon everything. We’ve been isolating since & are all well.. so here’s our plan. @jordanfish86 and our videographer @brian_c0x are travelling down to Sheffield to isolate with me, we are going to continue to write at home & even record some songs, we have everything we need to create the new record. & we want to involve you in the whole process- so from tonight, we will be sending constant updates of our progress, doing live chats and streams with you guys.. hopefully to bring a bit of joy & light to you guys in these dark times. Stay tuned, stay safe wash your hands & try & beat my face mask by @fabulousbeasts_ ✨ #isolationinnovation

It’s been a crazy ass week hasn’t it? Fortunately I am stuck in isolation w my UK mates @bringmethehorizon 🇬🇧 We are going to bring you guys as much content as humanly possible during this time as they write for their new EP from home. Hit the BMTH #youtube for notifications and feel free to engage with us! Its hard enough to distract from the madness out there but if you have something creative to put your energy towards, i suggest u do the same. Be safe out there! ✌️😷 #bmth8 #bringmethehorizon #washyourhands
They’ve been consistently providing short clips of them working from a home studio since the initial announcement.
Yesterday, they offered up a video showing them taking a pause from writing to have a bit of fun. In the clip, Jordan Fish crafts a fake mouse using a date, a bit of string and some spray paint to make his creation.
He quickly calls over for Oli’s mother, Carol, and chases her through the house while she screams in fear before realizing it’s fake.
After the prank, the band members gather together to keep working through new material.
Now, the band are giving another isolation update showing some of the vocal processes. In the clip, Oli Sykes is tracking new vocal lines while Jordan Fish takes a pic of his car before locking down to listen back to the mix.
After that, Oli straps on a pair of mismatched Adidas before heading out into the rain for a walk to get some fresh air.
