Bring Me The Horizon have surprised fans with a new single, ‘AmEN!’ featuring Lil Uzi Vert and Glassjaw and Head Automatica frontman Daryl Palumbo.

The track represents something of a return to the Sheffield rockers’ heavy roots, intercut with a verse from Palumbo and then a genre-smashing turn from Lil Uzi Vert in its second half.

It arrives on the heels of their recent single ‘LosT’, which dropped last month, and last year’s ‘sTraNgeRs’. It was announced with only a day’s notice and was then debuted live as the set opener at their show in Budapest, Hungary, last night (June 9).

It remains to be seen whether these singles could appear on the forthcoming second instalment of Bring Me The Horizon’s Post-Human series. The first instalment of the four-part series, Survival Horror, was released in October 2020, but the second one has not yet materialised.

The band worked on new music while on tour in the US last year in a studio built into the back of their tour bus, and shared some of their progress in a YouTube video series. The videos confirmed they were once again working with producer Zakk Cervini, who also worked on Post Human: Survival Horror.

“As for the basics of a record, we’ve got some good stuff coming along. It took a while,” drummer Mat Nicholls told Impericon earlier this year. “These things are always hard, especially for us, because our band’s quite perfectionist, and we change our mind a lot as well. You’ll write something one day and think it’s wicked, and then you’ll go away and come back to it and you don’t think it’s as good as you thought it was originally.”

“It’s coming, just trust us, trust the process. We’ve got some good stuff coming along, and hopefully this tour we’ve got some downtime where usually we just play FIFA, but instead we’re trying to write music. It’s coming along well, and we should have a song, at least, very soon.”

Bring Me The Horizon will be headlining the second night of Download Festival next week, marking their first appearance at the Donington Park festival for a decade. They previously headlined last year’s Reading & Leeds.
