Bring Me the Horizon have released a new song featuring Yungblud called ‘Obey’. The single is taken from BMTH’s upcoming series of Posthuman EPs. Check it out below.
“‘Obey’ is a soaring ode about how, as a society, oppression has been so normalized in our DNA that we can’t even see it anymore,” frontman Oli Sykes said in a press release. “We consider ourselves free, but only because the chains are invisible, and we are controlled in ways we don’t even want to think about. They tell us how to live with a smile on their face, like shit ain’t f**ked up, inform us of tragic statistics like it’s nothing… it’s a weird world.”
Yungblud added: “We are being told to conform to a completely outdated idea that we don’t relate to or even understand. They teach us to turn against each other and to fight against our differences rather than embrace and celebrate them. They try to keep us divided because it makes us weaker. Robots follow robots, because they feel nothing at all. But what they don’t realize is that to us, to be different is to be free, and a world of f**king love and equality is a world we want to be part of. We will rise above the hate and the diversion. We will fight for the world we want to be a part of. We will not obey.”
Previously, Bring Me the Horizon shared the single ‘Parasite Eve’. No release date has yet been announced for the upcoming EPs.
