Bring Me The Horizon frontman Oli Sykes offered up some details about the band’s new album ‘Post Human: NeX GEn.’
Skykes said in a new interview, “It’s part of four EPs that we’re working on called like the ‘Post Human’ series. And they’ve all got their own particular sound. And this record’s definitely leaning more into, like, I guess the kind of bands where I got obsessed with rock music was like when I got into my hardcore, post-hardcore emo phase.:”
He continued, “My first-ever show was Linkin Park, but then I started going to straight-edge hardcore shows and punk gigs and stuff like that, and local shows at pubs and stuff like that. And that’s when I got introduced to hardcore music and then bands like Glassjaw and American Nightmare and all that stuff. This record’s definitely paying homage to that stuff.”
‘Post Human: NeX GEn’ comes out on September 15.
