Bring Me The Horizon And YUNGBLUD Unleash New Single, Obey
The track was premiered as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record on Radio 1, and is the third single to be taken from Horizon’s upcoming Posthuman EP (the first in a new series of releases by the band).
“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,” explains BMTH frontman Oli Sykes of Obey. “They tell us how to live with a smile on their face, like shit ain’t fucked up, inform us of tragic statistics like it’s nothing… it’s a weird world.”
“We are being told to conform to a completely outdated idea that we don’t relate to or even understand,” adds YUNGBLUD. “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 realise 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.”
Obey was written by Bring Me The Horizon before the band hit up YUNGBLUD in Los Angeles for his vocal contributions. They also worked with DOOM and DOOM Eternal composer Mick Gordon – who previously produced June single Parasite Eve.
