Oli Sykes‘ dad Ian teamed up with the frontman on guest vocals on ‘Antivist’ during last night’s (June 23) Bring Me The Horizon show.

Introducing his father onstage at Germany’s Hurricane Festival, Sykes playfully told the crowd: “Help him out – he’s a little nervous” before his dad stepped in to perform the fan favourite track from ‘Sempiternal’. The frontman added: “Make some noise for the coolest dad in the world!”

Ian is the latest guest vocalist on ‘Antivist’, with members of Bad Omens and Sleep Token having also previously provided support on the track while Bring Me The Horizon toured the UK and Australia.

In yet another collaboration, Sykes also recently teamed up with Underoath‘s Spencer Chamberlain on ‘A Bullet w/ My Name On’, a track from their long awaited latest album, ‘Post Human: Next Gen’.

The ‘Can You Feel My Heart’ singer previously opened up about it’s divisive lyric: “If Jesus Christ returns, we’ll just kill the fucker twice,” telling NME the lyric was intended to be “a critique of the conflict in Israel and Palestine”.

“It’s spoken from the imagined perspective of a war victim, so it’s always coming from their mouthpiece, you know,” Sykes explained. “The first verse is directly aimed at us as the Western world and how we just viewed wars through the lens of blame: who deserved that, they had it coming, they shouldn’t have done that.”

Elsewhere, Sykes also recently opened up about his experience of rehab and recovery. I thought I was insane and didn’t think I was ever going to get better, but then I’m listening to people saying all my thoughts,” he said.

“They’ve all been through things that are different and worse, but ‘Strangers’ is about that realisation that we’re all just looking for security. We’re all just lost. The first part of getting better is accepting that you have to talk about this. If you don’t get it out of your head, it’s never going to go. Feelings have to be felt and processed.”
