Bring Me The Horizon’s Oli Sykes: “People Could Be Hearing New Music Sooner Rather Than Later”

Bring Me The Horizon barely released their new album “Amo” in January, but it looks like the band are already thinking about writing more new material. Oli Sykes confirmed the news to Kerrang!, while also adding that “people could be hearing new music sooner rather than later.”

Sykes said the following:

“I think we spent a long time on amo – like nearly over a year, The one vibe that is floating around is, ‘Let’s never do that again, it was too long,’ and we’ve kinda got a studio set up on tour now. We’ve started to think about writing and when we want to, and basically never having to get back to the studio and write for six months.

I think this last album is so different to anything we’ve done in the past, we do feel like we’re gaining a lot of fans as well as losing a lot of fans, and we want to give people more to get excited about and do stuff. I guess that last album made us feel like we could literally put anything out; we could go back and write something extremely heavy, or we could write the poppiest song in the world – or a mixture.

[amo] solidified that we are not doing any one thing anymore – we just write the music that we feel. It would be nice to start writing again without the pressure of a date, but we are thinking about it, and quite possibly people could be hearing new music sooner rather than later.”

This news comes after the group recently teased two unreleased songs.

Bring Me The Horizon Cancel Phoenix, AZ & Las Vegas, NV Shows

Bring Me The Horizon have been forced to cancel their February 15 show in Phoenix, AZ and their February 16 show in Las Vegas, NV due to frontman Oli Sykes rupturing his right vocal cord. Those were supposed to be the final dates on the band’s North American tour with Thrice and Fever 333. Refunds are available at point of purchase.

Sykes commented:

“Hey everyone, I’m gutted to announce we have to cancel the remainder of our American tour. I’ve ruptured my right vocal chord, and I’ve been told if I don’t rest it immediately I’m in serious danger of doing permanent damage.

I’ve been trying my best to fulfil our commitments as I really really hate letting you guys down, not to mention these shows have literally been the most fun ever- but at this point me singing in this state would be the equivalent of a footballer running on a broken leg..

we are working on plans to come back to Phoenix and Las Vegas this year to make it up to everyone who missed out..

Oli xoxxoox”
