NEW "BRING ME THE HORIZON' SINGLE ''darkside"
Bring Me The Horizon! - "Darkside" is the latest single from their upcoming album, "Post Human: NeX Gen." The band has been known for their evolving sound and experimentation across various genres, so it will be interesting to see what direction they take with this new album. Keep an eye out for the release date - January 2024 via Columbia Records.
Oli Sykes' insights about "Post Human: NeX Gen" and the broader "Post Human" series -- It sounds like the band is drawing inspiration from a range of rock and emo subgenres, paying homage to their influences from their earlier days, including hardcore, post-hardcore, and emo. Bands like Linkin Park, Glassjaw, American Nightmare, Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance, and Taking Back Sunday, they are aiming to blend these nostalgic elements with a contemporary and fresh sound, which is a common approach for bands that want to evolve while maintaining a connection to their musical roots.
Four months ago, Oli Sykes told NME about "Post Human: NeX Gen": "LINKIN PARK were the first band that I got into, but when I found GLASSJAW is when I became obsessed with music and knew I wanted to be a singer, so the album pays homage to that."
He continued: "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."
