Why Bring Me The Horizon’s second Post Human EP is taking longer than planned
As they so often do, Bring Me The Horizon wowed the rock world last summer by announcing that they would be releasing “four different records over the next year”, all under the Post Human banner.
So far, however, we’ve only had the absolutely awesome Survival Horror record, featuring collaborations with YUNGBLUD, Nova Twins, BABYMETAL and Amy Lee of Evanescence, and some of the band’s heaviest material in years across nine killer tracks. Explaining what could seemingly be seen as a ‘delay’ to the follow-up, Jordan Fish tells Kerrang! that Post Human: Survival Horror’s unexpected length means that Horizon will likely be spacing the rest of the EPs out going forwards.
“We’ve been writing on and off for quite a while, so there’s a lot of material that’s being worked on,” he reveals. “But we haven’t properly got into the rhythm of writing the next EP yet, we’ll probably do that in .

“The whole thing’s different to how we planned. We planned to do four EPs in a year, but the last one was almost an album, so I think the spacing will be a bit longer than intended, just because they’re probably going to turn out bigger than intended. That doesn’t matter, as long as they’re all really good.”
Opening up about the making of Post Human: Survival Horror and how COVID affected it, Jordan says, “I think a lot of the record was shaped by what was going on, not lyrically, but how we had to approach it. We were kind of up against it having to work using FaceTime and stuff like that, but I think that’s why we but did some of the things we did. We haven’t regressed, but we’ve definitely incorporated more stuff from the previous eras that we’ve specifically avoided doing before, so that’s partly down to the nature of the fact that we had to write over FaceTime – we had to rely on what we know works and played to our strengths. The guests sort of fell into place naturally – we’ve toured with BABYMETAL and YUNGBLUD, so it fit together quite easily.”
