Jordan Fish Wants To Sing About His “Long Balls” On The New Bring Me The Horizon Album
Poor Jordan Fish isn’t having the easiest time in the studio right now. With frontman Oli Sykes having his say on the lyrical content for Bring Me The Horizon’s new album, the keyboardist is struggling with not having his voice heard, too.
“Sometimes I feel like I’ve got all these lyrics, you know?” he admits at the start of Horizon’s latest update from the studio. “I’ve got so many lyric ideas, and I can’t express them because, you know, he’s the main lyricist and he’s so good at it and all this stuff…”
What exactly does Jordan want to get off his chest, we hear you ask? Well…
“I’ve got long balls,” he explains. “Saggy ball sack. It’s just got longer and longer as time’s gone on. I’m 34 now, and I’ve got a lot to say about it.”
As Oli seemingly accepts that Jordan’s lyrical direction might be the best way to go for the follow-up to last year’s 5K-rated album amo, the pair then come up with a catchy new number called Inferior Penas (yes, with an ‘a’ for some strange reason).
Keep up the good work, guys. We can’t wait to hear the finished thing.
The band’s new update follows on from Oli unleashing some old-school growls reminiscent of early albums like Count Your Blessings and Suicide Season. As he announces, “The guttural is back. 2020 is the year of the guttural.”
Last year, Oli explained that Horizon’s 2019 Death Stranding song Ludens “will be the first song you hear from the new record”.
“We’re not going to do an album again, maybe ever,” he said. “We’re thinking about doing shorter records. I don’t want to say we’re going to do something and not live up to it, but the plan is to release multiple records [in 2020].”
When asked if fans will start seeing a “more regular flow of music from Bring Me The Horizon”, Oli repsonds: “There’s all this shit you need to think about and how it’s going to sit on a 15 track album. I don’t want to do that. When we wrote Ludens, it was crazy but it was fun. We just had to write one song and it just had to serve the video game. We didn’t have to write the biggest song in the world. I just love to sit and go, ‘Let’s just write a song and not worry about how it needs to be.’”
