It looks like a Halsey and Bring Me The Horizon collaboration is in the works. Halsey has shared footage of her in the studio with Bring Me The Horizon’s Oli Sykes and Jordan Fish.
The video shows Halsey in the aftermath of finishing vocals. Halsey is seen behind the mic as Fish remarks “It sounds so cool! Is it too crazy?” to which Halsey responds, “No it’s sick.”

Bring Me The Horizon’s release from this year, amo, is a testament to the band’s ability to push the boundaries of their metalcore roots and pull off collaborations with left of field artists. If Grimes’ collaboration ‘nihilist blues’ is anything to go off, whatever Halsey and Bring Me have up their sleeve is destined to rip.
Halsey has previously shared her love for the legendary Sheffield act; upon the release of their track ‘medicine’, Halsey tweeted “BMTH is rly THAT band.”
She also congratulated the band on their release of amo, professing the record to be a “technicolor, emotional, trip.”

The tweet garnered flack from the heavy metal gatekeepers of the world, to which Halsey swiftly defended her status as a long-term fan of the band.
“If this is about my bmth tweet I saw them live for the first time in 2009,” She tweeted. “Ur obviously new around here if u dont know that I was an emo since the dawn of time.”
Bring Me bassist Matt Kean quickly shut down the criticisms hurled toward Halsey, confirming that he recognised the pop monolith from the 2009 tour date mentioned.
“Confirmed Starland ballroom crowd surfer (blue tick),” Kean shared in a now-deleted tweet.
If you’ve ever watched any live Halsey performance, you know that her unparalleled mic swinging abilities are something only a true, emo, Taking Back Sunday fan could have mastered.
All we know is that whatever this collaboration may entail, it’s going to be a gamechanger.
