Bring Me The Horizon x YUNGBLUD

Bring Me The Horizon and YUNGBLUD have teamed up for a brand new song titled “Obey.”

The two British modern rock powerhouses released the song Wednesday, premiering it on Annie Mac’s ‘Hottest Record’ Radio 1 show.

The song, which is accompanied by a very fitting music video, is about our inability to see control and oppression in society.

Oli Sykes, the front man for Bring Me The Horizon, said, “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 s*** ain’t f***** up, inform us of tragic statistics like it’s nothing… it’s a weird world.”

The chorus of the song uses Oli’s voice to convey the words of the powers that be.

“There’s nothing to see here, it’s under control. We’re only gambling with your soul,” Sykes sings.

YUNGBLUD added, “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. 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.”

YUNGBLUD’s thoughts seem to perfectly convey the idea of the music video.

We see Sykes and YUNGBLUD in the control chair of giant robots, walking through the city. When they finally meet, their first instinct is to fight. They’re so similar, yet they believe there can be only one giant, man-controlled robot.

By the end of the video, they see through their reasons to fight, just as YUNGBLUD prophesied.

Bring Me The Horizon wrote the song with additional production from Mick Gordon. It is the third song from the first EP in a series they are calling “Posthuman.”

After directly addressing criticisms for songs that “ain’t heavy metal” on their 2019 album “amo,” they seem to be rocking as hard as ever.

Yungblud – Strawberry Lipstick

YUNGBLUD shares his explosive new song “Strawberry Lipstick” and its equally outrageous video. Released via Locomotion/Interscope Records, “Strawberry Lipstick” is the brand-new single from the British singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist full-length sophomore album, due out later this year. Stream/download “Strawberry Lipstick” HERE, and check out the video HERE.

Directed by Christian Breslauer (Roddy Ricch, Tory Lanez, Marshmello) the “Strawberry Lipstick” video stars YUNGBLUD, his band, and L.A.-based singer/songwriter Jesse Jo Stark. With a whirlwind intensity true to YUNGBLUD’s chaotic charisma, the visual places him in a series of outlandish scenarios: mixing it up in a boxing ring, dancing in a custom Union Jack dress, lounging in a bathtub full of strawberries alongside Stark. A perfect foil to YUNGBLUD, Stark is a captivating presence.

Co-produced by YUNGBLUD with his longtime collaborators Chris Greatti (Poppy, Grimes) and Zakk Cervini (Bishop Briggs, Machine Gun Kelly), “Strawberry Lipstick” is a delightfully warped love song propelled by the 22-year-old artist’s snarling vocals and larger-than-life energy. With its fuzzed-out riffs and glam-rock flash, the gloriously catchy track also spotlights YUNGBLUD’s gender-bending tendencies.

Endlessly creative, YUNGBLUD also recently announced the upcoming release of his new graphic novel, The Twisted Tales of the Ritalin Club Volume 2: Weird Times at Quarry Banks University. The follow-up to The Twisted Tales of the Ritalin Club (his 2019 debut as a graphic novelist), the comic follows YUNGBLUD and his super-powered friends as they navigate university life and all its drugs, sex, and relationship drama — ultimately finding themselves caught in a trip that may cost them their lives. Due out via Z2 Comics this November, Weird Times at Quarry Banks University is now available for preorder in multiple editions. Go HERE for more info.

Born in Yorkshire, England, YUNGBLUD (aka Dominic Harrison) is a multi-instrumentalist who first picked up a guitar at age two and began writing his own songs at age 10. The 22-year-old artist is known for voicing what he feels are major concerns for his generation, using his music to unite and empower the youth of today. After breaking onto the scene with his self-titled EP, YUNGBLUD made his full-length debut with 21st Century Liability — a 2018 release that channeled his outrage about the state of the world into confrontational yet catchy songs steeped in punk fury and pop melodicism. The following year, YUNGBLUD released Live In Atlanta and the hope for the underrated youth EP, which debuted in the top 10 on the UK Official Albums chart. Over the years, YUNGBLUD has performed to sold-out crowds in over 20 countries and played some of the world’s biggest festivals, including Austin City Limits, Life Is Beautiful, Lollapalooza, Reading and Leeds Festivals, and Vans Warped Tour.

YUNGBLUD – WEIRD

YUNGBLUD shares his new single “Weird!” — an instantly resonant anthem for this strange moment in time. With its candid confessions of fear and anxiety, “Weird!” showcases the singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist’s uncompromising honesty and larger-than-life energy. “Weird!”  is available HERE via Locomotion/ Interscope Records.  

Despite its incredibly relevant chorus, “Weird!” was written prior to the shelter-in-place orders. Built on frenetic beats, shimmering guitar work, and particularly soulful vocals from YUNGBLUD, the track captures a mood of uncertainty that the 22-year-old artist felt his listeners might find relatable.

“I wrote the song about the weirdest time in my life ever imagined,” says YUNGBLUD. “I felt like the ground beneath me was a maze that was shape shifting and I felt like I was going to fall down the cracks and, in my opinion, the world feels exactly like that right now. I wanted this song to make everyone feel that everything was going to be alright no matter how weird things get.”

Now at work on his sophomore album, YUNGBLUD recently premiered THE YUNGBLUD SHOW — a series which aired on his YouTube channel. In addition to featuring intimate at-home performances from YUNGBLUD himself, the show featured appearances from friends and collaborators like Travis Barker, Machine Gun Kelly, and 24kGoldn. A passionate performer who thrives on connecting with his audience, YUNGBLUD conceived of THE YUNGBLUD SHOW as a way to stay creative and connected with his fans. Watch THE YUNGBLUD SHOW LIVE here – www.youtube.com/YUNGBLUD. In addition, YouTube Originals and YUNGBLUD are set to announce a new weekly series that follows the UK recording artist as he adjusts to a remote lifestyle while creating music and keeping up with his personal life.

WATCH HERE

On November 21, 2019, UK recording artist YUNGBLUD performed to a room of 5000 fans at O2 Academy Brixton. The show, his largest to date, was a milestone for the 22-year-old Doncaster native.

“I was getting so frustrated that I can’t play a show and connect to my fan base,” said YUNGBLUD. “We were brainstorming ideas, and I remembered we had a bunch of people filming the Brixton show, so my team stayed up for a couple days editing it together. If we can’t go to a live show, I’m gonna bring one to them. This was one of the best nights of my life. A night that I wanted to relive with my fans once again.”

Her 2015 debut album, BADLANDS, was certified Platinum by the RIAA within one year of its release. 

Halsey claimed the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 with 2017’s Platinum-certified hopeless fountain kingdom, which contained such hits as the 2x Platinum “Now or Never” and the 4x Platinum “Bad at Love.”

The success of the 6x Platinum “Without Me” has made Halsey the first and only female artist to have at least three songs chart on the Billboard Hot 100 for 50 weeks each.

In March 2019, Halsey became the first artist in history to replace herself at No. 1 twice on the U.S. Pop Songs Airplay chart when “Without Me” returned to No. 1, bumping “Eastside” from the top spot. “Without Me” was the most-played song of 2019 at U.S. radio. She featured on BTS’ Platinum hit, “Boy With Luv,” and, more recently, alongside Future on “Die for Me,” a track from Post Malone’s new album.

Halsey continues to push creative boundaries, expanding her influence and impact beyond music. After making her film debut in the animated 2018 summer movie Teen Titans GO! as the voice of Wonder Woman, she was seen in A Star is Born, starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga. She continues to use her voice to speak up for causes she passionately believes in, including disenfranchised youth, women’s rights, mental health and the LGBTQ community. GLAAD honored her in 2018 as “Outstanding Music Artist.” In 2019, she has won an AMA, the Hal David Starlight Award, presented by the Songwriters Hall of Fame, a VMA and two Teen Choice Awards.

YUNGBLUD “Hope For The Underrated Youth”

Locomotion / Geffen Records recording artist YUNGBLUD releases brand new song, “Hope For The Underrated Youth” today. Written by Dominic Harrison (YUNGBLUD) and produced by Dominic Harrison, Zakk Cervini and Chris Greatti, “Hope For The Underrated Youth” is available HERE. The song premiered earlier today on BBC Radio 1 as Annie Mac’s “Hottest Record In The World.”

On Saturday evening, Yorkshire-born singer-songwriter YUNGBLUD caused havoc on London’s River Thames. Lucky fans were invited onboard a chaotic ‘YUNGBLUD cruise,’ which saw him give a special live performance of fan favorites. He concluded the spectacle with a megaphoned speech against the backdrop of Britain’s Houses of Parliament, which saw projections of the words “there’s hope for the underrated youth” emblazoned upon them. WATCH THE MAYHEM HERE!

YUNGBLUD is known for voicing what he feels are major concerns for his generation, using his music to unite and empower the youth of today. New single “Hope For The Underrated Youth” is no exception and explores the idea of his generation being misunderstood and underestimated. Of the track, YUNGBLUD said: “The world right now tells us fall in line, it tells us what you’re allowed to care about, think about, even to the point what air you should fucking breathe. Things are changing drastically, a lot of the time not for the better and it’s hard to watch. I meet so many young people every day and the one common denominator I find is the constant fire to defy apathy and the optimism to do anything in your power to fight for a better, more equal world. This song is about freedom of speech. This song is about freedom of expression. This song is about the forward thinking, racism hating, LGBTQ+, liberal “sinners” that we all are. I see that there is hope for this “underrated youth” and I believe the future looks bright because we are in it.”

YUNGBLUD will take to the main stage at Reading & Leeds Festivals this summer (August 23-25). Last month, YUNGBLUD announced his fall Twisted Tales of The Ritalin Club Tour which sees him headlining larger venues – including The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles (September 17), the Vic Theatre in Chicago (October 4) and New York City’s Webster Hall (October 14). See the full itinerary HERE.

Tickets for the entire summer run sold out in less than 10 minutes, so the just-announced Twisted Tales of The Ritalin Club Tour will find YUNGBLUD headlining larger venues – including The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles (September 17), the Vic Theatre in Chicago (October 4) and New York City’s Webster Hall (October 14). The run will conclude at the 9:30 Club in Washington, DC on October 17. See below for itinerary.

Tickets for Twisted Tales of The Ritalin Club Tour go on sale to the general public this Friday, June 28, starting at 10:00 AM local time. Check your local box office for exact times. In addition to general admission tickets, the tour will offer an exclusive merch bundle in partnership with Hot Topic.

Today, the UK artist unleashed the official video for his new track, “Parents.” Directed by Miles and AJ, the clip brings the song’s stinging lyrics and vivid characters to life. Watch the video HERE. 

Hailing YUNGBLUD as a “Community-Driven Rock Star,” PAPER said, “His new track, ‘Parents,’ continues the story he began telling on his debut album, 21st Century Liability…It’s a defense of the unheard voices in a losing battle against authority; Yungblud is speaking to his fans in doing so, and in turn, is affirmed in his fans’ support.” 

Less than a year after the release of his debut album, 21st Century Liability, YUNGBLUD has amassed more than 350 million global streams across all songs and platforms. “Parents” follows his single “Loner,” which has over 15 million combined global streams, and YUNGBLUD & Halsey feat. Travis Barker – 11 Minutes, which has racked up over 160 million cumulative streams.  He recently partnered with Z2 Comics on an original concept graphic novel, YUNGBLUD presents The Twisted Tales Of The Ritalin Club, slated for release in October and available for pre-order in deluxe and standard editions now.

YUNGBLUD Releases “Loner” Acoustic

UK recording artist YUNGBLUD releases the acoustic version of his song “Loner” today. The song is available HERE via Locomotion / Geffen Records.  

The acoustic version was recorded in London with Matt Schwartz who produced YUNGBLUD’s full length debut album, 21 Century Liability.  The original version has over 20 million combined streams.  

“I wanted to just get in the studio with the boys and totally strip it back. This is such an important record for me so I was buzzin to bring it back to something raw.”

Last month YUNGBLUD released Live In Atlanta recorded during his sold-out October 10, 2018 show at Vinyl. The 12-track set kicks off with “21 Century Liability” and includes searing versions of “I Love You, Will You Marry Me,” “Psychotic Kids,” “California” and “Die For The Hype.” 

Next month YUNGBLUD sets out on his 2019 North American tour commencing May 3 at Terminal West in Atlanta and includes a May 15 show at New York City’s Bowery Ballroom. The second leg of the headline run will begin in June with a series of West Coast dates, including a night at Los Angeles’ intimate Roxy Theatre (June 19). YUNGBLUD will also play such festivals as Firefly, the Ottawa Blues Festival and Forecastle.
