“Diamonds Aren’t Forever,” but the memory of Bring Me The Horizon’s Oli Sykes and Static DressOlli Appleyard is. On January 17, at their stop in Liverpool, England, Sykes announced to the crowd, “Who wants to hear an oldie?” and brought out Appleyard to join him for the song.

The track is off of their second album, Suicide Season, and had fans excited. Appleyard lent his screams to the classic song and worked the stage alongside Sykes. The Static Dress frontman is seen hyping up the crowd, screaming in unison with Sykes, and having a good time. One audience member recorded the performance and posted it on their YouTube channel. 

It isn’t abnormal for the Bring Me The Horizon frontman to tap another singer to join him. Their first show of this current tour incorporated Bad Omens vocalist Noah Sebastian. Sykes brought him out to collaborate for their song “Antivist.” Fans don’t have to worry about this being a one-time thing, as they’ve been doing this live at every show on this run.

Before the start of the tour, their keyboardist and percussionist, Jordan Fish, announced his departure from the band. BMTH said in a statement on their Twitter that they thank him for Fish’s time with them and wish him luck. 

The metalcore giants are anticipating a summer release for their delayed album, POST HUMAN: NeX GEn. Their recent single off of the LP, “Kool-Aid,” is an aggressive track with old-school screams and a mix of their newer electronic energy. Which gets us pretty excited for a hardcore summer instead of a cruel one.

In the meantime, fans can still catch them and all of their collabs on this tour, through the end of the month in the UK. Tickets can be found for the remaining dates on their site.

Tour Dates:

  • Jan. 19—Sheffield, UK @ Flydsa Arena
  • Jan. 20—London, UK @ O2 Arena
  • Jan. 23—Dublin, Ireland @ 3 Arena
