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 🥂”
