Bring Me The Horizon have appeared on a new song by Australian rapper Masked Wolf, ‘Fallout’.
The rockers teased the collaboration last week when they shared a snippet of the new song via their TikTok. In the clip Bring Me The Horizon frontman Oli Sykes is seen singing close up to the camera while other shots reveal the rest of the band jamming in the studio.
Masked Wolf came into the spotlight last year after his 2019 song, ‘Astronaut In The Ocean’, became a sleeper hit on TikTok. It peaked at number four on the Australian ARIA Charts and number six on the US Billboard Hot 100.
The Sydney rapper released his debut mixtape ‘Astronomical’ in September 2021, which featured collaborations with X Ambassadors, Kevin Gates and NICOLOSI.
‘Fallout’ marks 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, and ‘maybe’ with Machine Gun Kelly, which appears on his latest album ‘Mainstream Sellout’ released last Friday (March 25).
Sykes and Kelly had previewed that track at Emo Nite at LA’s Avalon nightclub earlier in March.
Bring Me the Horizon graced the cover of the third issue of Rolling Stone UK 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, with the band saying that they’re aiming to create what they call 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.’”
