Bring Me The Horizon have just unveiled a new single LosT, and it's an all-out pop-punk banger. Like DiE4u and Strangers before it, LosT is radio-ready, with a memorable chorus, bright guitars, and Oli Sykes sounding more comfortable than ever in his clean vocals.

LosT is accompanied by a hectic video starring Kevin from American Pie. The clip begins with Sykes on an operating table before [GORE WARNING] a surgeon cuts into his brain and finds out that the singer is still alive the hard way.

Sykes slits the surgeon’s throat before running through the hospital and the song kicks in. The special effects are to be marvelled at. Check out the Jensen Noen-directed music video below.

LosT arrives a month before the band’s special headlining slot at Download 20 on Friday, 9 June. It’s Bring Me The Horizon’s first festival appearance in the UK since last year’s Reading & Leeds festivals.

Bring Me The Horizon’s recent series of mini-albums has a much more outward gaze than their past albums, including their last full-length album amo, released in January 2019. It peaked at the top of the ARIA Albums Chart soon after.

October 2020's Post Human: Survival Horror, their sixth album since Count Your Blessings in 2006, amo featured guests as luminary and diverse as Dani Filth (Cradle Of Filth) and Grimes. It proved – yet again- that Bring Me The Horizon have mastered collaborations, defying genre divides.

Post Human: Survival Horror boasts an all-star line-up of guests from across the metal, hip hop and pop spectrum: Amy Lee (Evanescence), Babymetal, Nova Twins and Yungblud. The EP is the first of a series of four mini-albums. The initial plan was to release all four within a year, but the stringent quality control that is central to the band's ethos demanded a longer timeframe.

In December, Bring Me The Horizon headlined Good Things Festival, taking their numerous bangers across the country. Drawing from only the last eight years of their career, the band’s set delivered one hell of a spectacle. You can check out our review of the festival here.
