Bring Me The Horizon’s Oli Sykes On “Post Human” EP Series: “We’re Just Taking Our Time With It And Making Sure We’re Doing Something Different”

During a recent interview with NME, Bring Me The Horizon’s Oli Sykes offered an update on the next three EPs in the band’s “Post Human” series. The frontman says the group are “just taking [their] time with [the project] and making sure [they are] doing something different.”

Sykes said the following:

“It’s almost like we’ve been backlogged; now the world is up and running again, in between other commitments such as families, kids, and even my own [Drop Dead clothing] brand, it’s just about finding the time.

We are chipping away at it, but I also think we feel as though the bar has been set so high for us. I feel like we have this pretty incredible [live] set now, and any song we write now has to be good enough to justify its place on the setlist.”

I’m also so adverse to making music for the sake of consumption. I feel like so many artists just put a song out or do a collab just to make money. I just feel as though there’s not many iconic songs anymore, songs where it’s clear that a lot of graft has gone into them.

Maybe [Bring Me The Horizon] should be doing that a bit more, like, ‘Let’s get some fucking music out and make some money.’ But, you know, it’s just not in my heart to do that.

I’d rather spend three months working on a song in order to put out something special; this is not a case of writers’ block, we’re just taking our time with it and making sure we’re doing something different, which gets increasingly harder as your catalogue gets bigger.”

“my brother found my bootleg compilations I used to make and sell at high school lol. 5 quid each or 3 for a tenner along with every unofficial Eminem album that ever existed. Big up valley cru”

Bring Me The Horizon Premiere “sTraNgeRs” Music Video

Bring Me The Horizon have premiered a new video for their new song “sTraNgeRs.“ Frontman Oli Sykes commented:

“The song came out of a long writing trip in LA, and as soon as the lyric ‘we’re just a room full of strangers’ came it took on such a deeper double meaning – how it would feel to be performing it live as that’s what it is.. all strangers connecting on this mad level.. and that it was like rehab.. Coming out of lockdown and the pandemic, everyone is recovering from something and I’m so aware that so many people struggle daily with differing traumas, and just wanted to stress that they’re not in this alone… and we’re a community here to help each other.”
