Bring Me The Horizon tease their new album: “It’s time for a new era”

Bring Me The Horizon have begun teasing their next album, ‘POST HUMAN: NeX GEn’ – find out all details below.

The Sheffield band have posted a tantalising clip on their socials today (April 10), confirming that “it’s time for a new era”. From the hints they’ve given us, it looks like Bring Me The Horizon is teasing ‘POST HUMAN: NeX GEn’, which has been delayed since last August.

In the futuristic video, a robot utters the speech: “You cling to your virtual identity as if it were your very soul. Pathetic. I’m here to wipe away the detritus of your existence. All these thoughts, these memories, they are but a fleeting echo in an endless void. And just like that, you cease to exist in a digital realm. A mere blip erased from the annals of cyberspace. Farewell insignificant content.”

The video ends with the sentence: “It’s time for a new era. Initialising NeX GEn.”

At the end of the clip, viewers can also read a small paragraph with the words: “THE CHURCH OF GENXSIS welcomes you to a night at YOUTOPIA via NeX GEn. There is a home beyond our bones. P.H. II ??/??/2024.”

Watch the teaser trailer below:

Frontman Oli Sykes first announced news of the album during their headlining Download set back in June. It will serve as the follow-up to 2020’s ‘POST HUMAN: SURVIVAL HORROR’.

The band then revealed the record was delayed the next month in a social media post, citing “unforeseen circumstances” leaving the band “unable to complete the record to the standard we’d be happy with”.

Sykes further spoke about the record in a chat with NME last June, calling it “unhinged”: “I wouldn’t say it’s a hyper-pop album, but I’ve definitely been inspired by that world. I admire how obnoxious, trashy and in your face that music feels, which is what I was drawn to when I got into emo, hardcore and screamo.

“It’s not that we’ve lost that in our music, but as you become a bigger band, things do get more polished. I want to go the opposite way. Let’s be unhinged, let’s stop trying to make all the edges smooth.”

The vocalist provided a further update to us this January when we saw them at the BRITs, with Sykes telling us: “It’s nearly finished, but it’s not finished”.

“Every time we think we’ve got it, we get another song,” he added. “It’s going to be right good though, it’s our best album ever… Worth the wait.”

So far, the band have previewed the latest single from the album ‘Kool-Aid’ this January, with ‘DArkSide’, ‘LosT’, ‘AmEN!’, ‘DiE4u’ and ‘sTraNgeRs’ also speculated to appear on the upcoming album.

It will also be their first album without longtime member Jordan Fish, who announced his sudden departure at the end of December 2023. Fish was part of the band since 2012.

In a statement, the band said of his leave: “Bring Me The Horizon has decided to part ways with Jordan Fish. We want to thank him for the musical journey he took with us and wish him luck with everything in the future.”
