Bring Me The Horizon Release New Single Parasite Eve, Detail 'Post Human' Project

Friday, 26 June 2020 Written by Huw Baines

Bring Me The Horizon have made good on a series of teasers by releasing their new single Parasite Eve.

In an interview with NME, vocalist Oli Sykes outlined the metallers’ plans post-’Amo’, hinting at a more wide-ranging, project-based approach and promising four records in the next year under the banner ‘Post Human'. “This song is going to be part of a record that has the same feel along with Ludens,” Sykes said. 

“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.”

Discussing the pulsating synth-metal of Parasite Eve more closely, he added: “We’d heard about the pandemic in China, but then the similarities between what we were writing about started to become closer to reality. Every time there was a news story about it, we’d turn to each other and say Parasite Eve, not realising the magnitude of it all. We shelved the song for a bit because it felt a bit too close to the bone. After sitting on it for a while, we realised that this was a reason to release it now more than ever."
