Bring Me the Horizon have shared a snippet of a new collaborative single, ‘Fallout’, which sees them team up with Australian rapper Masked Wolf.

The Sheffield metallers have teased the track with a 13-second clip on TikTok, with the accompanying caption reading: “THIS IS THE FALLOUT #fyp #bmth #emo #bringmethehorizon #newmusic’.” The video features brooding vocals from frontman Oil Sykes over a riff-heavy, nu metal-inflected instrumental, with scuzzy footage appearing to show the band playing the track in a rehearsal room. You can see it below.

Meanwhile, Masked Wolf – real name Harry Michael and best-known for his track ‘Astronaut in the Ocean’ – shared his own, more obtuse clip on his Instagram, with the caption confirming that the track will arrive this Friday (April 1). “Pre-save or pre-add Masked Wolf x Bring Me The Horizon’s upcoming song Fallout,” it read. “Song releasing April 1.”

‘Fallout’ will mark the latest in what has been a collaborative purple patch for Bring Me the Horizon. Other team-ups they’ve released in recent months include ‘Bad Habits’ with Ed Sheeran, with which they opened this year’s BRIT Award ceremony back in February, and ‘maybe’ with Machine Gun Kelly, which appears on the rap-rocker’s latest album, ‘Mainstream Sellout’, released last Friday (March 25).

Sykes and Kelly had previously previewed that track at Emo Nite at Los Angeles’ Avalon nightclub earlier this month. Bring Me the Horizon graced the cover of the third issue of Rolling Stone UK back in February, sitting down with Hannah Ewens for an in-depth discussion of their pandemic year and their latest release, 2020’s conceptual ‘Post Human: Survival Horror’. A second EP in the series will follow this year, aiming to create a “future emo” sound. 

“With this record, I’m going to try to teach people to have compassion for themselves, as someone who fucking hated themselves,” Sykes explained. “It used to make me sick to hear ‘you’ve got to love yourself’ — never. I used to put all my awards in a cupboard, I wouldn’t look at them. If someone asked me what I did, I would never say I was in a band, I’d say I own a clothing company or a restaurant. I just didn’t wanna talk about it. Now I love myself. I can look in the mirror and go ‘You’re doing good.’ I can say ‘I’m a rock star, my band’s doing well.’”
