Masked Wolf and Bring Me The Horizon have teamed up for Fallout, a track about finding yourself stuck in the rubble and dragging yourself out of the darkness. Masked Wolf's lyrics are full of detailed metaphors that paint a vivid picture of someone that's hurting, while BMTH lead singer Oli Sykes reaches deep into his soul for the chorus.
It's a collaboration that is going to take some people by surprise, in all the best ways. Masked Wolf's gone from strength to strength since the success of Astronaut In The Ocean, releasing debut mixtape Astronomical, and Fallout is the next step in his evolution.
The track also features production and vocals from HVDES and follows on from Bring Me The Horizon's recent collaboration with Ed Sheeran on a remix of Bad Habits, as well as their track with Machine Gun Kelly, maybe. Both BMTH and Masked Wolf aren't afraid to unleash their innermost thoughts in the studio, and the result is a track that'll resonate with those that often feel misunderstood.
Speaking about the massive link-up, Masked Wolf explains, “I haven’t done a collaboration that felt dark; I always felt that my brand had that edge of darkness to it, and I was waiting for the right opportunity to come along. When I heard Fallout it grabbed me straight away. The way I felt like I was meant to be in the rubble but could still be brought out, that’s the feeling it gave me.
"The way the song builds over time made me feel like there was nothing wrong with it at all. To me, it’s perfectly structured and gives me the emotions I love diving deeper into when writing songs.
Bring Me The Horizon's Oli Sykes echoed Masked Wolf's thoughts, adding, "This collaboration came around in a super interesting way with talk of us making something for a film, so we had to approach it in a different way, which resulted in a really dark and cinematic vibe, and we felt HVDES’ influence fit so perfectly for that mood. Then adding Wolf’s vocals onto it gave it this deeper feel, which is again another totally new world for Bring Me The Horizon to step into.”
