Bring Me The Horizon dressed up as the pop powerhouse the Spice Girls at the BRIT Awards on Feb. 18. The metalcore unit all wore the personas of Scary, Posh, Baby, Sporty and Ginger from their iconic performance at the 1997 BRIT Awards.
Additionally, Bring Me The horizon shared a few details of what and when to expect new music.
The Spice Girls dominated the late-1990s like no other. Sporting hits like “Wannabe” and “Stop” and “Viva Forever” the five-piece blasted catchy, power-pop through everyone’s speakers.
Bring Me The Horizon, on the other hand, aren’t traditionally known for their pension for dance-fueled pop performances. However, they have collaborated with Halsey a number of times and Grimes. Well, who’s to say metal can’t go pop?

In equally important news as Oli Sykes and the lads bringing the girl power was that Sykes and Jordan Fish spoke about upcoming music. Doing as rockstars do however, no definitive answers were given on much of anything but we know they’re writing again, they plan to record and sonically, the music has no definition.
“Yeah we’ve gone straight back into writing to be honest,” Sykes says to NME. “We’ve just been in Amsterdam for a couple of weeks. Just writing. Then we’re gonna start like, literally, going to give ourselves maybe a day to record more and then we’re gonna get straight into it. We’re planning on having music pretty soon to be honest.”
When asked about how the record will sound, the band gave a rather vague answer.
“It’s literally evolving every day. Me and Jordan talk on the phone about what we’re thinking and stuff and it’s literally…we’ve got some demos,” Sykes says before Fish chimes in. “When we get started, we’ll see. We never know before,” Fish states.
The concept and ideas of what we’re thinking are just different every day. We thought we might have an idea of where we wanna take it and I think it’s just going to be a cosmic force that keeps pulling us in different ways. So, it’s going to be unexpected again,” Sykes ends with. Watch the full interview below.
Previously, Sykes spoke about how they may never put out another record like amo again. Instead, aiming for shorter records more frequently.
“‘Ludens’ will be the first song you hear from the new record. We’re not going to do an album again, maybe ever.” Sykes states. “We’re thinking about doing shorter records. I don’t want to say we’re going to do something and not live up to it, but the plan is to release multiple records next year.”
When asked why they might be going with the shorter records as opposed to a full-length album, Sykes discusses the process of creating amo.
“I’m really proud of ‘amo’, but it was such a fucking ballache to make. We spent a whole fucking year of our lives making that record. Part of me was like, ‘For what? We’re never going to get to play all of those songs’.”
“You have to ration your creativity over all your songs. You write a really cool pop song then you have to write a heavy song to balance out, then you need to think about singles.”
At the end of 2019, Bring Me The Horizon delivered on that promise by releasing their Music to listen to EP.
As of right now, there is no word of when to expect new Bring Me The Horizon music but at least we know it’s coming very soon.
