In the latest example of Bring Me The Horizon's crossover into mainstream superstardom, the band has joined pop-superstar Ed Sheeran live on stage at the 2022 Brit Awards for an amped-up version of Sheeran's monster hit Bad Habits.
Watch Sheeran and Bring Me The Horizon deliver the rockin' version of Bad Habits, below, surrounded by dancers and acrobats swinging above the stage on wires. Oli Sykes absolutely commits to the performance, putting his unique take on the verses and even letting rip on a couple of guttural growls.
The latest in a long line of unexpected collaborations again showcases the scope of Bring Me The Horizon's vision and comes only days after the band released a cover of the Gran Turismo theme for the soundtrack of the upcoming Gran Turismo 7.
Bring Me The Horizon's take on Masahiro Androh of T-Square's Moon Over The Castle is our first taste of the soundtrack which will feature music from Nothing But Thieves, Major Lazor, London Grammar and more.
Currently, in the studio working on the second of four planned EP's in the Post Human series, Bring Me the Horizon continue to push new boundaries with frontman Oli Sykes revealing to Rolling Stone UK self-compassion and self-love will be the thematic focus of the second Post Human EP.
“With this record, I’m going to try to teach people to have compassion for themselves, as someone who fucking hated themselves," he 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.’”
The band released Die4U last year, with the darker, more pop-centric vibe of the song indicating yet another sonic progression appears to be on the cards when the second Post Human EP drops.
Watch the video for Die4U below.
DiE4u and Moon Over The Castle follow Bring Me The Horizon’s highly successful EP Post Human: Survival Horror.
That release showcased the bands’ incredible drive to explore and push their own creative boundaries during the height of the global pandemic.
