Bring Me The Horizon have revealed to their fans what they can expect from their next album, saying that it “won’t be a pop album”, to help calm some of the fears their fans may have.
Speaking on Daniel P Carter’s Radio One Rock show, the bands songwriter and keyboardist, Jordan Fish, said that band would drift between their more melodic and usual heavy metal sound.
Jordan has said, “There are a few things I know it won’t be. It’s not going to be a pop record. I don’t think we’d ever do a straight, boring pop record. It’s not going to be a super, super heavy record either … We’ll probably take bits from what we did on ‘Sempiternal’, bits from what we did on ‘That’s The Spirit’ and take it off in a different direction. As long as it’s interesting and exciting, that’s all I really care about.”
He goes on to say, “I understand there’s probably a load of people who want us to be super heavy and a load of people who only like the last album, who don’t like the heavier stuff. That’s just the nature of a band that’s changed styles so much across the course of their career. For us, I just want to write something good. Where it sits genre-wise is something someone else can worry about.”
Bring Me The Horizon’s front man, Oli Sykes, has recently been speaking to NME and has said that the album would be ‘weirder and darker‘.
Oli said last year, “Sometimes we talk about it, but it’s ‘in the moment’ when you’re inspired by something and I don’t know. I think there’s an element of what we’re doing now that will stay in the music, but at the same time it’s like people thought ‘That’s The Spirit’ was a very polished pop rock album – it’s not. I think it’s inventive and unique, but it’s still safe in a way; we knew the songs we’re gonna connect well with people. Next time I think we wanna push it a bit weirder. Who knows?”
