Bring Me The Horizon have announced the departure of keyboardist and percussionist Jordan Fish.

Fish joined the rock giants in 2012 and played a key part in evolving the group’s sound from their heavier origins, which was first displayed on the 2013 record Sempiternal.

Confirming Fish’s departure, Bring Me The Horizon said in a statement: “Bring Me The Horizon has decided to part ways with Jordan Fish. We want to thank him for the musical journey he took with us and wish him luck with everything in the future. Meanwhile we continue to work on Nex Gen, with brand new music coming very soon. See you on our UK tour in January.”

In his own statement, Fish added: “I’m really grateful for my 11 years with the band, and extremely proud of all that we have achieved together.

“I look forward to hearing what they do next, and wish them every success in the future. I’m excited to start this next chapter in my career”.

Fish’s future in the group had been subject to recent speculation, after he was not present on a string of dates on the band’s recent Asian tour.

The group’s next record NeX GEn’ was set to be released on September 15, but was pushed back due to “unforeseen circumstances”, with the group “unable to complete the record to the standard we’d be happy with”.

A new release date for the album is yet to be confirmed, but Sykes has said it is “close” and recently shared a snippet of a new song called ‘Kool Aid’.
