Bring Me The Horizon's Oli Sykes Has To Take A Drug Not To Do Drugs

(TeamRock Radio) Bring Me The Horizon frontman Oli Sykes admits he takes breaks from his anti-addiction medication so he can be "silly and fun" - but he's far from ready to stop taking them for good.

He's been receiving medical care after developing a ketamine problem, which he revealed to fans last year. He's since returned to work with the band and they've just released fifth album That's The Spirit.

Sykes tells Metal Hammer: "It's funny that I've got to take a drug to stop doing other drugs. I have cut down on my medications - I'm trying harder. If I'm off it for just a day it's like the old me times a million, like I'm just stupid. But as soon as that hits I'm just working and have no time for fun.

"I always make sure I come off it every so often and have a few days of being silly and fun." But he continues: "Quitting is out of the question right now. It's something I wouldn't dare toy with - it's done me too much good." Read more here.
