In Bring Me The Horizon’s own words, get ready to “ascend”, because their new album is quite literally about to drop.

The band have just made the shock announcement that the long-awaited POST HUMAN: NeX GEn is arriving at midnight, so after a delay since last August, we’ve now only got a few hours to go until the full thing!

Alongside a futuristic teaser video that’s presumably soundtracked by music from the record, they write: “BMTH invites you to Ascend!+ POST HUMAN: NeX GEn [out midnight 24.05]”

On April 10, they kicked off the teasers by sharing a clip that said: “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.”

“It’s time for a new era. Initialising NeX GEn.”

Last summer, frontman Oli Sykes said that he wanted the follow-up to Post Human: Survival Horror to have a more “unhinged” approach, taking influence from the likes of Glassjaw as well as the “obnoxious, trashy and in-your-face” feel of hyperpop. “It’s not that we’ve lost that in our music, but as you become a bigger band, things do get more polished,” he explained. “I want to go the opposite way. Let’s be unhinged, let’s stop trying to make all the edges smooth.

“There’s no, ‘That song could be played on the radio if we don’t scream.’ It’s almost like we’re connecting to that time before Bring Me The Horizon had any prospects of being a big band. Back then, there was never anything but, ‘What do you want to make?’ So we’re trying to tap back into that.”
