Bring Me the Horizon are fuelling up the hype train in the lead-up to their forthcoming collab with Yungblud, sharing our first look at the blockbuster team-up which they’ve just announced is dropping THIS DAMN WEEK.
First of all, the music video looks like it’s going to be a bloody good time, with the band splashing multiple pics across their socials featuring frontman Oli Sykes and Yungblud together, covered with some kind of rusty red liquid (we’re guessing… blood)

“YOU MONSTERS ARE PEOPLE,” and “u aint ready”, they captioned the snaps.
Since then, BMTH have shared a chaotic teaser video with the caption “another day another systematic nightmare”, as well as a second post revealing the collab — seemingly dubbed ‘OBEY’ — will be dropping on September 2nd (yes that’s tomorrow! But likely to mean Thursday Australian time).
It comes after Bring Me confirmed the forthcoming collab during an interview with MTV Rock Charts earlier this month.
“Yeah, we’ve been scheming, we’ve got something coming,” Sykes said at the time.
When pressed about whether the collaboration would form part of the band’s forthcoming Post Human project, which will see them release four separate EPs over the course of the next year, Sykes coyly replied: “Maybe, maybe not”.
Fish went on to explain that due to the nature of the project, there’s more scope to include special guests.
“I think we might kind of theme our guests a bit more around what’s going on with each EP,” he revealed. “It’ll give us a chance to maybe get some people on who are a bit more left-filed or a bit more out of the box for our band.”
Last month, Sykes told Music Feeds all about the project, saying that each of the four releases will be completely different sound and feel.
“Each album’s going to be sonically very, very different, and there’ll be a kind of overarching theme for each record — it’ll be a different message,” he said, suggesting that each record would see the band explore extremes of their sound.
“I really want the record to feel like ‘cyber thrash metal’,” he continued. “To have this kind of dystopian vibe. I don’t know, it’s the way I see us being able to do this heavy music again but have it feel fresh and pushing forward, rather than just feeling like ‘old-school’.”
“I want it to have that nostalgia of, like, early noughties metal and nu-metal but at the same time, I want it to feel like something people have never heard before.”
It follows the release of their Mick Gordon-produced latest single ‘Parasite Eve’.
