Oli Sykes On New Bring Me The Horizon EP: It’s About “Drawing A Parallel Between Recovery As A Planet, And A Society, And My Recovery As A Drug Addict”

During a recent interview with Revolver, Bring Me The Horizon’s Oli Sykes discussed the second EP in the band’s “Post Human” series. According to him, the effort is about “drawing a parallel between recovery as a planet, and a society, and [his] recovery as a drug addict.”

Sykes said the following about the pandemic-induced relapse that influenced the EP:

“Being alone every day and losing the band, not touring … as soon as that all went, I started slowly creeping back onto the harder stuff. The world works when it works, but as soon as this virus came and fucked everything up, it made me realize that the world doesn’t actually work at all. … And the same goes for me. My life works when it’s working. But as soon as it stopped, I didn’t know what my meaning in life was. … If I’m not Oli Sykes from Bring Me the Horizon then who am I?”

He also added the following about his wife finding out about his drug usage:

“For her, it was like I was cheating … because I was taking drugs behind her back. She didn’t know, then she found out and she’d never seen anything like that. I thought I was only harming myself. But in recovery, talking to her and talking to a therapist with her, it’s like, Fuck, I’ve really scarred her.’ It’s taken a long time to get her trust back. When I go out, she’s scared I’m gonna do drugs. It’s the same as someone cheating on their partner: they’re always gonna have this slight insecurity that they’re gonna do it again. Realizing that was like, Fuck, I can’t do that again. It’s evil. It’s not just hurting myself. It’s hurting other people.”

Sykes went on to say the EP also took inspiration from hyperpop:

“The scene inspired me in the same way as when we were doing our music at first. It were kind of like this sugar-rushed version of metal and hardcore, making this crazy, dissonant, noisy music. … That’s what these kids are doing now in pop … pushing the sound to its extreme. Obviously I didn’t wanna jack its style and … look like these old dudes making this young music, but just that frantic energy and that chaotic feeling, we took a while to inject it to just the right level.”

He also confirmed that the sound of the new material won’t stray as far away from the band’s heavier roots like 2019’s “Amo“ did:

“To be honest, I think we lost sight of the things that made us special, and why people fell in love with us in the first place. I’m a lot more proud to be in a rock band than I was five years ago. It used to piss me off, rock music, and I openly said that. I just felt like it was dead.”

“It’s rare to find a band, who, when they get bigger and more mainstream, make sure to retain the harder elements … that made them big in the first place. That’s what we’re trying to do now: retain those extreme elements … but at the same time push ourselves and evolve. Let’s keep the screaming. Let’s keep the breakdown. Let’s keep the fast drumming. Let’s see what happens if we make pop music but still keep all those elements in there.”
