During Bring Me The Horizon’s phenomenal headlining set at Download Festival over the weekend, the Sheffield metallers proved that they’re more than capable headliners with a performance full of hits, pyrotechnics, and impressive computer-generated videos on the screens.

As well as putting on a celebratory show that firmly solidified Bring Me The Horizon’s legend status alongside the great headliners Metallica and Slipknot, the band revealed their plans for their upcoming album, POST HUMAN: NeX Gen, during the festival weekend.

Continuing the Post Human series – for which the band previously planned to make four EPs in a year, NeX Gen follows Post Human: Survival Horror, the album that boasted the singles Paradise Eve, Teardrops and Obey (featuring Yungblud). NeX Gen also keeps up the collaborative spirit, as it features the already-released AmEN! featuring Lil Uzi Vert and Glassjaw’s Daryl Palumbo, and the pop-punk-inspired LosT.

POST HUMAN: NeX Gen will be released on Friday, 15 September, via Sony Music Australia/RCA. The album and UK and Ireland tour launch were announced via a mass, never-before-seen fan activation the band hosted across their socials and on-site at Download Festival over the course of the weekend. 

Fans followed a series of hidden clues and riddles that led them to a secret building, The Church Of Genxsis, which was on-site at Download. Once inside, fans experienced a variety of immersive Genxsis rituals, including face branding, a sermon and tarot readings, as they completed their journey to becoming members.

AmEN! is the band’s heaviest outing in years, anchored by wicked production values and a ferocity that's been missing in recent Bring Me The Horizon tracks.

The combination of Bring Me The Horizon, Lil Uzi Vert and Palumbo is an unlikely one, but it sees Oli Sykes screaming again alongside Palumbo’s screeches and buzzsaw guitars.

Sykes said about LosT last month (per Blabbermouth), "I think LosT encapsulates exactly how I imagine this next album, or EP or whatever you want to call it, is going to sound like." He continued to say that it felt like a "really good representation of how I imagine this record to be".

October 2020's Post Human: Survival Horror, their sixth album since Count Your Blessings in 2006, featured guests as luminary and diverse as Dani Filth (Cradle Of Filth), Amy Lee (Evanescence) and Grimes. It proved – yet again – that Bring Me The Horizon have mastered collaborations, defying genre divides. Will they do the same on NeX Gen? Pre-order the album here.
