Bring Me The Horizon’s Oli Sykes Talks New Album, Cites Twenty One Pilots As Inspiration

During an interview with Kerrang!, Bring Me The Horizon’s Oli Sykes offered some information about the band’s next album. He says they have about 30 song ideas and that they are hoping fans will be able to hear some new material before the year’s end. Sykes went on to cite Twenty One Pilots as an inspiration and also said the group “like the idea of breaking into the mainstream.”

Sykes said the following:

“I don’t think any Bring Me The Horizon fan is going to be surprised at this next album sounding different to the last one. I kind of know where I want to go, but it’s also falling into place as we write the thing. We want it to be different and we want to push forward. We like the idea of breaking into the mainstream. We’re not ashamed of that, we don’t see it as selling out. We see it as a great challenge, to make music that can be adored by more people but still retain who we are. That is the goal.”

He also added the following about Twenty One Pilots:

“[They’re] popular and accessible, but without compromising their integrity or who they are. That’s a real challenge now.”
