BRING ME THE HORIZON UNLEASH MUSIC VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE “PARASITE EVE”; ANNOUNCE ‘POST HUMAN’ EP SERIES
After weeks of teasing fans with a taste of new music, Bring Me The Horizon have finally delivered with the release of their latest single, “Parasite Eve.”
“Parasite Eve came from an idea to write a survival horror song, but as the pandemic started to develop, the parallels were so similar it felt so close to the bone we decided to shelve it.
As time went on, we started to feel how relevant it was and that instead of shying from it, that we should address the dark side, embrace it and process what’s going on… Parasite Eve is our message of hope, wrapped in sadness and anger.”

In a recent interview with NME, frontman Oli Sykes revealed that they will be releasing four different records over the next year all sharing the name Post Human. Each release sounding tonally different giving off its own sound and mood. Sykes also revealed each EP could range between 6-10 tracks.
“This song is going to be part of a record that has the same feel along with ‘Ludens‘. We’ve just been winging it and recording from lockdown, and now we’re going to make four different records over the next year and they’ll all share the name ‘Post Human‘. They’ll each be tonally different with their own sound and mood.
That’s one thing we’ve never really done. There’s often been an over-arching theme on our records, but the music has always felt like a collage. That’s cool and I like it, but sometimes you want a soundtrack for a certain occasion and emotion.
The idea behind ‘Post Human‘ is looking at how we’ve stepped out of evolution and the food chain. If we can do that, then we can take responsibility for what we’ve done to the planet and become something better than what humans are right now.”
“You know like on ‘Lord Of The Rings‘ where they all sing a song before battle, knowing that they might die but they’re going got persevere and see how it goes? We’re trying to embody that. This first record is about hope and anger and feels like the sonic equivalent of a riot. We’re inviting people to find the solution with us.
It’s a demonstration to pull you in and get your back up. It’s a lot more aggressive than anything we’ve done for a while. The world doesn’t need light-hearted pop music right now – it needs anthems for anger. There’s so much to be pissed off about.”
