Bring Me The Horizon, has just dropped their new single ‘Parasite Eve’!
Frontman Oli Sykes did an interview with NME recently, where he discussed ‘Parasite Eve’ and it’s origins. The song was written about a year ago and was inspired by the Japanese super bug that became resistant to heat, thanks to climate change. However, with the Covid pandemic, they decided it would be best to put the song on hold for awhile.
In the interview Sykes said “We shelved the song for a bit because it felt bit too close to the bone,” Then continuing “After sitting on it for a while, we realized that this was a reason to release it now more than ever. In our music we’ve always wanted to escape, but there’s been too much escapism and ignoring the problems in the world. It’s not what the world needs. The world needs more and needs to think about it and remember. You can’t just brush over it and expect life to go back to normal, because it fucking ain’t. In so many ways, we need to change. That’s what rock music is about – addressing the dark side and processing it.”
