Last month (June 30), Sykes and Alice Longyu Gao dropped a new collaborative track, ‘Believe The Hype’, along with a futuristic music video of its own.

The outlandish music video focuses on the anonymous tales of fans, coming together to remind us that no one is truly alone.
UK rock band Bring Me The Horizon have released their newest single ‘sTraNgeRs’ along with an unearthly music video partly influenced by stories shared by the band’s fanbase.
“The song came out of a long writing trip in LA,” lead singer Oli Sykes explained on the BMTH official website. “As soon as the lyric ‘we’re just a room full of strangers’ came it took on such a deeper double meaning – how it would feel to be performing it live as that’s what it is.. all strangers connecting on this mad level.. and that it was like rehab..”
“Coming out of lockdown and the pandemic, everyone is recovering from something and I’m so aware that so many people struggle daily with differing traumas, and just wanted to stress that they’re not in this alone… and we’re a community here to help each other.”
After asking fans if they would like to anonymously contribute personal stories, the band used numerous responses to mould the raw, transcendental narrative that takes place in the music video.
‘sTraNgeRs’ is the latest part of BMTH’s POST HUMAN series, a collection of four EPs with the first being POST HUMAN: SURVIVAL HORROR which the band released in October 2020. Bring Me The Horizon’s last non-collaborative single was ‘DiE4u’, which landed last September.
