Bring Me The Horizon frontman Oli Sykes recently sat down with NME to discuss their new album and the possibility of a documentary about the band.

During the interview, Sykes provided updates on the new album and the aftermath of Jordan Fish’s departure from the band. He explained that Fish left due to creative differences. When asked about a potential Bring Me The Horizon movie and if Fish’s exit would be a minor part of it, Sykes responded:

“There’s not gonna be any scene! We’ll never do one of those. Our story is a very slow, long climb to the top. No one died. Every time someone’s like, ‘Do you want to do a documentary?’ I’m like, ‘F*ck no!’”

He went on to mention the Foo Fighters’ documentaries, expressing his view that even with a dramatic story, such projects are unnecessary:

“Look at a band like Foo Fighters – they’ve had the most insane story ever, and I still don’t want to watch that documentary. No offense. I just don’t care. [Dave Grohl] has been through so much, lost so many people, and I still don’t want to watch it. So why would you want to watch a Bring Me The Horizon one?”

Sykes elaborated on why a BMTH documentary wouldn’t be as captivating:

“It’s just us being a slow reach to becoming a big band. Nothing particularly exciting has ever happened. ‘Oh yeah, he was addicted to drugs,’ whatever. Who wasn’t in a rock band? It’s the same with Jordan: there’s nothing there, not exciting. We just got to a point where we weren’t happy as a unit anymore.”

Sykes Is Open To Working With Jordan Fish Again

The band’s latest album, ‘POST HUMAN: NeX GEn,’ was written and recorded after Jordan Fish left the band late last year. Given Fish’s dual role as a producer and musician, his departure raised questions about the band’s future.

Recently, Sykes revealed he hasn’t heard from Fish since the album’s release but remains open to future collaboration:

“I’m not gonna lie and say, ‘Oh, it ended amicably.’ It’s just like when you break up with someone – it never ends well. I don’t rule out us talking or working together in the future or anything. I can’t speak for him, but from my side, there’s no animosity.”
