After some avid teasing for months now, British rock titans Bring Me The Horizon have finally announced that their POST HUMAN: SURVIVAL HORROR extended play will drop at the end of this month. Just in time for Halloween, the release will be unleashed on Friday, October 30th.
Compiling nine tracks overall, the extended play sees some notable guests joining forces with the UK force majeure. Not only Japanese metal sensation BABYMETAL, but also Evanescence frontwoman Amy Lee and the incredibly kick-ass English duo Nova Twins.
On top of all that is of course the band’s recent collaboration with UK industry dominator Yungblud, who teamed up with Bring Me The Horizon earlier this year for anti-authority anthem ‘Obey‘. Frontman Oli Sykes commented on the track that while we consider ourselves free, it’s only “because the chains are invisible, and we are controlled in ways we don’t even want to think about.” He continues: “They tell us how to live with a smile on their face, like shit ain’t fucked up, inform us of tragic statistics like it’s nothing…it’s a weird world.”
Prior to that comment on our increasingly dystopian society, the group had shared ‘Parasite Eve‘, a haunting commentary that turned out to be the soundtrack to our accompanying problematic pandemic. Around the time of the single, core member Jordan Fish spoke to Blunt Magazine about the plan for the POST HUMAN series. “I think we’re going to do a series of EPs now, over the next year,” he pointed out, “year and a half…I don’t know exactly how many, but they’re all going to be kind of connected.”
What that means is that we can spin the nine tracks on the forthcoming SURVIVAL HORROR release until our ears bleed from the repetition and we can listen no longer, because there’s certainly more to come.
