Watch Oli Sykes Track Vocals On The New Bring Me The Horizon Album
It’s already been a hella good time watching Bring Me The Horizon’s daily updates from the studio as they work on a new record, and their latest video, don’t breathe on me, is perhaps one of the most insightful yet.
The band’s fifth new clip sees frontman Oli Sykes tracking vocals for the record – which will be their first new material since last year’s surprise Music to listen to… EP.
“isolation update: oli tracks new vox as they work into the nite,” explains videographer Brian Cox of what’s going on in the two-and-a-half minute clip. “took a break for some much needed fresh air n made sure we r keeping 2 govt guidelines. more updates soon.”
While it’s obviously great to see Horizon both recording new music and doing their part in this coronavirus pandemic, our favourite moment of the video has got to be keyboardist Jordan Fish walking past Oli as he’s working on his vocals and simply stating, “Take a photo of my car.”
In Bring Me’s initial announcement telling fans they’d be documenting their time in the studio, Oli posted to Instagram:
“Hey world hope everyone is coping with the quarantine ok, shit is upside down right now…
“We were working on BMTH8 in the studio and obviously we had to abandon everything. We’ve been isolating since & are all well… so here’s our plan. Jordan Fish and our videographer Brian Cox are travelling down to Sheffield to isolate with me, we are going to continue to write at home and even record some songs, we have everything we need to create the new record.
“We want to involve you in the whole process – so from tonight, we will be sending constant updates of our progress, doing live chats and streams with you guys… hopefully to bring a bit of joy and light to you guys in these dark times.”
