Bring Me the Horizon’s Oli Sykes and Jordan Fish sat down with Billboard to reveal how they created their song “Wonderful Life,” featuring Cradle of Filth’s Dani Filth, as part of the “How It Went Down” video series.
Sykes tells Billboard that he and his bandmate Fish actually initially wrote the song’s riff for Limp Bizkit, but it didn’t work out. However, a few months later, they were writing their album and decided to splice that unused riff with a song they were working on.
At the time “Wonderful Life” was written, Sykes shares, the band was exhausted and stoned. So they ordered some Italian food and a few bottles of wine and put the track together.
