Bring Me The Horizon frontman Oli Sykes has opened up about rehab and his recovery after “falling back into drugs and bad habits in lockdown”.The singer spoke about his struggles with substance abuse in 2015, claiming that drug addiction made him want to kill himself.

At the time, Sykes revealed that BMTH’s 2013 album ‘Sempiternal’ was written after he recovered from a ketamine addiction.He eventually attended rehab sessions, but stated that he disagreed with many of the things that drug rehabilitation teaches: “They tell you ‘it’s a disease’ – that’s bollocks.

It’s not a disease; it’s a self-inflicted problem. It’s offensive to people with diseases to claim addiction is a disease.“They said it would be a struggle every day, that you’re an addict for the rest of your life.

Bollocks. It’s all bollocks. I’ve never looked back since I got clean. I got clean for my family, my friends and my band. I didn’t get clean for God.”Now, in a new interview with NME, Sykes has discussed “falling back into drugs and bad habits” during the COVID-19 pandemic – and said this is what had “prompted” him to write BMTH’s new album, ‘Post Human: Nex Gen’.“As soon as it all stopped [in lockdown], I wasn’t in a good place either,” he explained. “I was in a good place before because the band was doing well; we were touring the world, getting nominated for awards, and I was feeding off all this stuff.
