Bring Me The Horizon’s Oli Sykes & Jordan Fish Were Recruited To Do Some Writing For Limp Bizkit’s New Album

Bring Me the Horizon recently released “Wonderful Life” off their new album “Amo” (out January 25), but it seems the song wasn’t originally written for the effort. During an interview on BBC Radio 1’s Rock Show With Daniel P. Carter, frontman Oli Sykes revealed that him and keyboardist Jordan Fish were recruited to help write material for Limp Bizkit‘s new album, “Stampede Of The Disco Elephants,” and that the track actually came out of those sessions.

Sykes said the following:

“Last year, me and Jordan went and worked with Fred Durst on a Limp Bizkit album. It just didn’t work out, to be honest. He just didn’t show up most of the time. Lovely guy, but I don’t think he was ready to make an album. I think he was pushed into it a bit, like, his managers and people said ‘These are the guys you want to work with.’ So we gave him all these ideas and I mean it was just bad from day one, to be honest.”

He also added:

“It’s one of them things, looking back, where it wasn’t meant to be. One good thing came out of it: me and Jordan wrote this riff and I one day decided the tempo and key matched almost perfectly with the song. So we de-Bizkit‘d it a bit, and it ended up sounding pretty sick.”

Bring Me The Horizon’s Oli Sykes On New Album “Amo”: “It Sounds Nothing Like Anything We’ve Ever Done Before”

Bring Me The Horizon’s Oli Sykes recently spoke to Metal Hammer about the band’s new album “Amo“ (out January 11) and their single “Mantra.” According to him, the group’s new material “sounds nothing like anything [they’ve] ever done before.”

Sykes said the following:

“It’s not anti-love, it’s unbiased in that respect, it just explores stuff. I went through a divorce a couple of years ago and I was really reluctant to write about it, but in the end I needed to get it out of me and deal with it. Not that I was so broken up about it, but sometimes when you go through something traumatic, even when you think you’re over it you don’t realise what you’re still holding on to. Whether it’s the way you treat other people or losing trust, I thought I need to explore this myself so I can deal with it.”

He continued:

“It’s not really an angry record or anything like that, it’s more about looking at stuff and going over it and mentally dumping it. It goes in to stuff that’s not about me that’s more about society and stuff like that. You’ll find out.”

“Our last record [‘That’s The Spirit] we set out to make a record we could see ourselves playing in bigger venues – I like to call it a big-budget rock album – and every song could have been a single. I always looked up to Linkin Park’s ‘Hybrid Theory‘ where every song could be a single. I know some people don’t think that’s so cool, but I used to think that was amazing.

With [‘Amo‘] it’s a bit different. We’ll write some songs that can be on the radio – we love to write those songs, it’s a challenge for us – but at the same time we’re gonna write some songs that throw everything out the window that you know about us. You couldn’t even edit it into a single if you wanted to. We’re gonna do whatever the fuck we want. In some aspects it’s a heavier record, which sounds so cliché, but it is.

Don’t get me wrong, if anyone’s thinking we’re going to bring out a much heavier album, it’s not. There are some songs that are poppier than anything we’ve ever done before, but there are some songs that are weirder. Some that don’t even sound like rock songs, they’re still heavy and dark, but they tap into a different psyche and place. It sounds nothing like anything we’ve ever done before.”
