Bring Me The Horizon have revealed that they still plan to continue their “Post Human” EP series at some point.
The Sheffield-based band released the nine-track collection ‘Post Human: Survival Horror’ in October 2020, which follows their sixth studio album ‘Amo’ (2019).
Following the release of the EP, Bring Me told NME that the project was the first installment in a four-part series called ‘Post Human’. Singer Oli Sykes previously said the group were “not going to do another album, maybe ever”.
Last September, BMTH released the single “Die4U”, which was intended to be the first preview of their second EP “Post Human”. Sykes told NME at the time: “I know what I want to do [todo el proyecto].
“We have a clear directive that the third will take, and also the fourth.
In May, Sykes said that Bring Me The Horizon had “about 45 songs” recorded that could appear on his next project. Shortly after they published another new song, “Strangers”.
Speaking to NME as part of Big Read’s new cover story, Sykes said continuing with the ‘Post Human’ EP project is “still the plan” despite some setbacks and a recent shift in focus.
“It’s almost like we were behind; now the world is in full swing again, among other commitments like family, kids, and even my own brand. [de ropa Drop Dead]it’s just a matter of finding the time,” explained the singer.
“We’re working on it, but I also think we feel the bar is very high for us. I think we have this great series now. [en vivo]and any song we write now has to be good enough to warrant a place in the set list.”
Sykes continued: “I’m also against making music for the sake of consumption. I think a lot of artists put out songs or do collaborations just to make money. I feel like there aren’t many iconic songs anymore, songs in which it is clear that a lot of work has gone into it.
“Maybe [Bring Me The Horizon] I should do that a little more, like, ‘Let’s put out some fucking music and make some money.’ But, you know, it’s not in my heart to do that.”
He added, “I’d rather spend three months working on a song to come up with something special; it’s not a case of writers, we’re just taking our time and making sure we do something different, which is getting harder. and harder as we go.” that your catalog will grow”.
Take away Horizon’s latest interview with NME came ahead of their massive performances at Reading & Leeds 2022 last month.
Elsewhere in the talk, they went over their history with the doubleheader, talking about running into Arctic Monkeys backstage, and how Alex Turner and company’s “fucking great” live set compares to his their own.
In a glowing five-star review, NME praised Bring Me for “putting on a successful show” with their slot at Reading 2022.
