Bring Me The Horizon’s delayed album is ‘nearly finished’

Bring Me The Horizon’s delayed album, ‘POST HUMAN: NeX GEn’, is “nearly finished”.

The BRIT Award-winning rockers – who won their first-ever BRIT for Best Rock/Alternative Act at the weekend – were forced to push back the follow-up 2020’s ‘Post Human: Survival Horror’, which was originally set for release on September 15, 2023, due to “unforeseen circumstances”.

Then, in December, it was announced that programmer and keyboardist Jordan Fish – who was instrumental in their evolved sound – had departed the group.

In a new update, the ‘Kool-Aid’ hitmakers admit they don’t want to “rush” the record and have added some new songs.

Speaking to NME, Oli said: “It’s nearly finished, but it’s not finished.

“Every time we think we’ve got it; we get another song.

“It’s going to be right good though, it’s our best album ever… Worth the wait.”

Drummer Matt Nicholls continued: “It’s not quite finished yet, but it’s closer than it ever has been. We came back off tour and – we’ve got a studio in Sheffield – just cracked on. Got our heads down with everyone all together and we’re getting there. It’s this close…

“It is really good, and we’re really happy with it but it takes time, doesn’t it?

“You can’t rush these things.”

Announcing the delay in a statement on Instagram last August, Oli wrote: “So I got some bad news… nex gen won’t be coming September 15th.

“Unforeseen circumstances rendered us unable to complete the record to the standard we’d be happy with.”

He had been “hoping” the band would still be able to make the planned launch for the record, but he doesn’t want to put out the collection “until it’s nailed”.

Oli added: “I was hoping despite the setbacks we could pull it off in time for you guys but there’s still so many little details I want to be perfect and until it’s nailed I’m just not willing to give it to you guys.”

The singer/screamer insisted the release is “close” but stopped short of giving a firmer update, while saying “sorry and thanks for understanding”.

He continued: “We can’t give a new date just yet but just know it’s close… and I know you guys have been so patient but you just gotta be a lil more.. (sic)”
