It all started on July 25 when YUNGBLUD tweeted Oli Sykes and Jordan Fish. The not-so-subtle tweet seemingly hinted that a collaboration between the two British artists was in the works.

Then, back in August, BMTH confirmed that a collaboration with YUNGBLUD is actually happening. Bring Me The Horizon were recently interviewed by Jack Saunders for MTV Rocks Chart. As soon as Saunders brought up the Twitter exchange with YUNGBLUD, Sykes cryptically confirmed the news.

“Yeah we’ve been scheming, we’ve got something coming,” he said.

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.

During the interview, Fish elaborated on where the YUNGBLUD collab will likely appear on their upcoming releases. As well, he confirmed 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 shared. “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.”

Now, Bring Me The Horizon and YUNGBLUD have revealed that their new song “Obey” arrives on Wednesday, Sept. 2. The video teaser includes a snippet of the sound fans might hear on “Obey” this week.

Both acts recently shared the first look at their upcoming collaboration with a series of photos. On Aug. 27, BMTH posted a photo of Sykes. The tweet’s caption “it was written in blood” could potentially reference some of the collab’s lyrics.

Following this, both Bring Me The Horizon and YUNGBLUD shared even more photos over the weekend. By the looks of it, both artists seem to be having a bloody good time working together.

“YOU MONSTERS ARE PEOPLE,” Bring Me The Horizon tweet.

“u ain’t ready,” YUNGBLUD tweets.

“Obey” marks the first piece of new music to come from each artist in a few months. Bring Me The Horizon unveiled “Parasite Eve,” their latest single, back in June. The track marked BMTH’s first new release since 2019’s Music To Listen To EP.

As well, YUNGBLUD recently released his new single “Strawberry Lipstick” back in July. The single is off of his sophomore album that is expected to be released sometime this year.

YUNGBLUD has previously expressed his love for Bring Me The Horizon’s music. Following the release of 2019’s amo, he shared that he’s been a fan since the Suicide Season era.

“new bmth fuckin SLAPS been here since SS n they still pioneering shit ?? good day for rock n roll go listen man,” he tweets.
