Bring Me The Horizon have announced the release of a new song called shared details of a new song titled ‘Kool-Aid’.
The new track will be the first to arrive following the departure of Jordan Fish late last year and comes after they teased it by sharing a brief snippet in an Instagram story.
The group also shared an official newsletter earlier this week in which they teased that the song was “coming soon” and available to pre-save/pre-add for fans.
In their latest Instagram post, the group confirmed that the track will be released tomorrow, sharing a selection of behind-the-scenes of them recording the single. As eagle-eyed fans noticed, the fourth slide included an image of Sykes with longtime producer and engineer Dan Lancaster – suggesting that a reunion could be on the cards.
Lancaster is a long term friend of the group, having mixed their 2015 record That’s The Spirit, as well as songs on 2019’s amo and their POST HUMAN: SURVIVAL HORROR EP.
Sykes has also shared the full list of lyrics of the new track with fans. He begins: “We are the children of the devolution/ The infamous martyrs, the scars on the sun/ Asphyxiating with a smile on your face/ While they pull your teeth out one by one”.
The group’s next record NeX GEn’ was set to be released on September 15 last year, but was pushed back due to “unforeseen circumstances”, with the group “unable to complete the record to the standard we’d be happy with”.
That was followed by the departure of Fish, who joined 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”.
