Watch Bring Me The Horizon’s Oli Sykes join BABYMETAL on stage for ‘Kingslayer’ at Sick New World


Bring Me The Horizon’s Oli Sykes joined BABYMETAL during their set at Sick New World 2024 on Saturday – check out footage below. 

The Japanese band were playing the Las Vegas festival yesterday (April 27), when they were joined by Sykes on a version of their collaborative track. 

‘Kingslayer’ was first released on BMTH’s 2020 record ‘Post Human: Survival Horror’, and as Sykes told NME at the time, it is an ode to someone who is “willing to do what’s right even if it’s illegal”. 

Watch the performance below: 

“The irony of Trump condemning [anti-fascist union] ANTIFA and wanting to call them a terrorist organisation is just insane. He’s basically admitting that he’s a fascist,” Sykes went on to say, talking about the track’s inspiration. 

In the same interview, Sykes spoke about choosing to work with the pop-metal group: “We wanted to do something with them for ages. We’ve got a really special connection with them, even though we don’t speak the same language. We don’t hang out or have conversations, but when you see them, it makes you really happy.” 

The two bands played the song together on stage in Japan last October, during BMTH’s headline show in Kobe

BABYMETAL are due to play a huge co-headline show with Bad Omens on June 23 at France’s 11,000-capacity Zénith Toulouse Métropole. That will come just after both bands perform at this summer’s Download Festival, which will return to Donington Park in Leicestershire from June 14 to 16. Bad Omens will be headlining the second stage on the Friday of the renowned rock festival, while BABYMETAL will play the main stage on the Saturday. 

Bring Me The Horizon, meanwhile, have begun teasing their new album ‘POST HUMAN: NeX GEn’. In a clip posted on April 10, they confirmed that “it’s time for a new era”. The record was first teased by Sykes during their headlining set at Download last year

So far, the band have previewed the latest single from the album ‘Kool-Aid’ this January, with ‘DArkSide’, ‘LosT’, ‘AmEN!’, ‘DiE4u’ and ‘sTraNgeRs’ also speculated to appear on the upcoming album. 

It will also be their first album without longtime member Jordan Fish, who announced his sudden departure at the end of December 2023. Fish had been part of the band since 2012.
