With their new single, Parasite Eve, finally out in the world, Bring Me The Horizon fans can expect a lot more new music in the next year.

Appearing on a new episode of The Green Room with Neil Griffiths podcast this week, frontman Oli Sykes laid out the plan for the UK outfit over the next 12 months. 

"Over the next year, we're gonna release four different records," Sykes told host Neil Griffiths.

"They're all gonna fall into a blanket name of 'Post Human' and have their own individual titles. Each record is gonna have a distinct tone lyrically and sonically...

"What I'd really like to do - I don't know if this is gonna happen because it's easier said then done - I would really like to, rather than chronologically release each EP... maybe you hear a song off the second or third or fourth record, like, before you even hear the whole first EP.

"Obviously the EPs would be completed chronologically, so the first EP will be coming out maybe in September and the second one maybe coming out in January, but you might hear songs from the third record before the second record is even out."

Sykes said that, like many musicians, the global pandemic and lockdown has forced them to "get creative".

"I think lockdown has given us the confidence to be like, look, no one is even really expecting music from us right now," he said.

"For us, it's like, let's just get creative and let's do something that maybe the label wouldn't have the confidence to let us do if it was a regular time."
