Bring Me The Horizon’s Jordan Fish Comments On My Chemical Romance-Inspired New Single “LosT”, Explains Why The Band Are Saving Up Their “Heavy” Material For A Future Release


If the emo stylings of Bring Me The Horizon‘s newly released single “LosT” didn’t meet your expectations, there’s still a lot more to come. That said, those who crave the heavier side of the alternative metal outfit’s catalog will have some time to wait until the band get back to that aspect of their sound.

Programmer/vocalist, etc. Jordan Fish recently spoke with Kerrang! about the band’s latest single, confirming the track was directly influenced by My Chemical Romance. While it’s sound may be indicative of the next installment in the band’s four-part ‘Post Human‘ series of releases, those who crave something a bit heavier won’t be forgotten.

According to Fish, the group plan to save the majority of the heavier material for the fourth and final entry in that series. He told the publication:

“We’re on a journey of doing different types of records, which we set ourselves up to do thinking we’d get through it really quickly, and it hasn’t panned out that way for a number of reasons. We’re working on four Post Human records and we’ve been working on them all at the same time; one of the reasons why it’s taken longer is that we’ve done stuff for the third and fourth ones as well.

The fourth one is where we want to explore the more heavy stuff, so in a way it limits how much we want to go heavy on this one. You don’t want them all to sound the same and you want to be confident in your conviction of going all-in on a style. It’s been a bit challenging working out how to do heavy-ish stuff on the record that doesn’t feel necessarily ‘metal’ heavy. I can imagine ‘LosT‘ being a popular song in a rock club. It’s a rock-y, emo-y pop song.”

Speaking of “LosT” itself, Fish added:

“…I think you’re not meant to talk about your influences – people usually say everything except what it’s obviously influenced by. You hear a band do a song that sounds exactly like Deftones and they’ll say they were listening to a lot of Glassjaw or something else – just say Deftones (laughs). So this song is influenced by My Chem. I feel the verse is a bit different, it’s kind of indie-sounding to me, like The Strokes or some pop-indie vibe. I don’t know why you make what you make, it just comes out.”
