Bring Me The Horizon’s Collaboration With Evanescence’s Amy Lee Came About After The Band “Subconsciously” Stole One Of Her Verses For “Nihilist Blues”

As previously reported, Bring Me The Horizon’s new EP “Post Human: Survival Horror” features Evanescence’s Amy Lee on the song “One Day The Only Butterflies Left Will Be In Your Chest As You March Towards Your Death.” Now, during an interview with NME, Oli Sykes revealed that the collaboration came about after the band “subconsciously” stole one of Lee’s verses for their track “Nihilist Blues.”

Sykes said the following:

“The weird thing about Evanescence is that we got sued by them on our last record. On ‘Nihilist Blues,’ we ripped off one of their verses. It was subconscious, but when it happened we were like, ‘We’re not even going to argue.’”

He also clarified the lawsuit comment on Twitter:

“And i have to clear something up! When i said @evanescence sued the band over nihilist blues, that wasn’t exactly true! Our managers just exchanged words and we offered them song writing credits, @AmyLeeEV didn’t want a thing from the band in her words has nothing but love for us”

Lee replied as well:

“Yo don’t quote me or I’LL SUE! 😂 That whole story is actually really cool. Can’t believe it brought us HERE. You guys deserve every good thing that comes to you. Congrats 🥂”

Bring Me The Horizon Team Up With Yungblud For New Song “Obey’

Bring Me The Horizon have premiered a new video for their new song “Obey.“ This track features Yungblud and it is expected to appear on the first EP in the band’s “Posthuman” series.

Oli Sykes commented:

“We consider ourselves free but only because the chains are invisible, and we are controlled in ways we don’t even want to think about. They tell us how to live with a smile on their face, like shit aint fucked up, inform us of tragic statistics like its nothing… it’s a weird world.”

Yungblud added:

“We are being told to conform to a completely outdated idea that we don’t relate to or even understand. They teach us to turn against each other and to fight against our differences rather than embrace and celebrate them. They try to keep us divided because it makes us weaker. Robots follow robots, because they feel nothing at all.

But what they don’t realize is that to us, to be different is to be free and a world of fucking love and equality is a world we want to be part of. We will rise above the hate and the diversion. We will fight for the world we want to be a part of. We will not obey.”

Bring Me The Horizon have posted a cryptic teaser video. You can check that out below. Many fans are assuming that the band are teasing their new collaborative track with Yungblud. This seems likely considering that the two acts have been posting pictures together as of late.

Bring Me The Horizon Premiere “Parasite Eve” Video

Bring Me The Horizon have premiered a new video for their new song “Parasite Eve.“ This track will be included in the band’s new EP series “Post Human.”

Oli Sykes said the following about the new song:

“‘Parasite Eve’ came from an idea to write a survival horror song, but as the pandemic started to develop, the parallels were so similar it felt so close to the bone we decided to shelve it. As time went on, we started to feel how relevant it was and that instead of shying from it, we should address the dark side, embrace it, and process what’s going on… ‘Parasite Eve’ is our message of hope, wrapped in sadness and anger.”

He also discussed things further with NME:

“This song is going to be part of a record that has the same feel along with ‘Ludens‘. We’ve just been winging it and recording from lockdown, and now we’re going to make four different records over the next year and they’ll all share the name ‘Post Human‘. They’ll each be tonally different with their own sound and mood.

That’s one thing we’ve never really done. There’s often been an over-arching theme on our records, but the music has always felt like a collage. That’s cool and I like it, but sometimes you want a soundtrack for a certain occasion and emotion.

The idea behind ‘Post Human‘ is looking at how we’ve stepped out of evolution and the food chain. If we can do that, then we can take responsibility for what we’ve done to the planet and become something better than what humans are right now.”

He went on to talk about the origins of “Parasite Eve,” which was recorded in February:

“It was really weird. We’d heard about the pandemic in China, but then the similarities between what we were writing about started to become closer to reality. Every time there was a news story about it, we’d turn to each other and say ‘Parasite Eve‘, not realising the magnitude of it all.

We shelved the song for a bit because it felt bit too close to the bone. After sitting on it for a while, we realised that this was a reason to release it now more than ever. In our music we’ve always wanted to escape, but there’s been too much escapism and ignoring the problems in the world. It’s not what the world needs.

The world needs more and needs to think about it and remember. You can’t just brush over it and expect life to go back to normal, because it fucking ain’t. In so many ways, we need to change. That’s what rock music is about – addressing the dark side and processing it.

This is a moment we all knew was coming one day, but maybe not in our lifetime. Look at the Black Lives Matter protests too. It felt like we were making progress and people were standing up to injustice, but maybe we got too complacent because it’s still happening. It’s time to be pissed off. It’s not the time to say, ‘These days shall pass’ and ‘everything will be OK’, because it won’t fucking be OK unless we fucking do something about it.”

He also added the following about the first EP in the “Post Human” series:

“You know like on ‘Lord Of The Rings‘ where they all sing a song before battle, knowing that they might die but they’re going got persevere and see how it goes? We’re trying to embody that. This first record is about hope and anger and feels like the sonic equivalent of a riot. We’re inviting people to find the solution with us.

It’s a demonstration to pull you in and get your back up. It’s a lot more aggressive than anything we’ve done for a while. The world doesn’t need light-hearted pop music right now – it needs anthems for anger. There’s so much to be pissed off about.”
