Bring Me The Horizon release long-awaited new album ‘Post Human: NeX GEn’

It was originally slated for release in September last year, but the band have now shared it across streaming platforms.

After a series of delays, Bring Me The Horizon have finally released their highly-anticipated new album ‘POST HUMAN: NeX GEn’, which landed at midnight today (00:00 on 24th May). 

Taking to Instagram to share the news yesterday, the band announced the record’s arrival via a teaser video accompanied by the caption: “BMTH invites you to Ascend!+ POST HUMAN: NeX GEn [out midnight 24.05]”. 

Originally announced back in June of last year, the project is the next instalment of their ‘POST HUMAN’ series and the follow up to 2020’s ‘POST HUMAN: SURVIVAL HORROR’ EP, but its release - originally set for 15th September 2023 - was delayed partly due to the fact that, as frontman Oli Sykes puts it, “it took ages to write”. The album marks their first full-length release since the departure of Jordan Fish earlier this year. 

“It’s a real concept album, with a full narrative that connects to the first record, but the concept is hidden and buried,” he continues, of the record as a whole. “Some people aren’t going to be interested, but for some people it could be like a self-help book. There’s a lot of things in there, some of it’s quite clear, but a lot of it cryptic and hidden. People are gonna have to work it out.”
