Alt-metal juggernaut Bring Me the Horizon have issued a statement regarding a personnel change within the band. After more than 11 years as the keyboardist, percussionist and producer for the band, Jordan Fish is parting ways with Bring Me. The news arrives as the band continues to work on their highly-anticipated Next Gen release.
In a statement release on December 22nd, the band confirmed the change and teased a glimpse at Next Gen in the very near future. “Bring Me The Horizon has decided to part ways with Jordan Fish. We want to thank him for the musical journey he took with us and wish him luck with everything in the future. Meanwhile we continue to work on 'Nex Gen', with brand new music coming very soon. See you on our UK tour in January.”
Releasing his own statement, the split seemed to be amicable with Fish sharing his appreciation for his time with the band while looking ahead to his next venture. “I’m really grateful for my 11 years with the band, and extremely proud of all that we have achieved together. I look forward to hearing what they do next, and wish them every success in the future. I’m excited to start this next period of my career, focusing for the meantime on songwriting and production.”
Bring Me the Horizon will headline a UK/Ireland run starting next month with support from Bad Omens, Static Dress and Cassyette. The list of confirmed dates can be found below. Get tickets - HERE
