British rock band, Bring Me the Horizon, has announced an indefinite delay for the release of their anticipated EP, Post Human: NeX GEn.

Originally slated for a September 15 release via Columbia Records, the postponement has been attributed to “unforeseen circumstances”, which have prevented the band from completing the EP to their satisfaction.

Oli Sykes, the band’s vocalist, shared his disappointment and the reasons for the delay on his Instagram account. “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,” he lamented. Despite not being able to provide a concrete new release date, Sykes assured fans that it would be soon. He expressed gratitude for their patience and shared the completed artwork for the album, designed by @alissic.

Despite this setback, Bring Me the Horizon fans have something to look forward to, as the band recently revealed dates for their January 2024 arena tour across the UK and Ireland. Supporting acts for the tour include Bad Omens, Cassyette, and Static Dress.

In past interviews, Sykes has shed some light on the inspiration behind “Post Human: NeX GEn”. He described it as an homage to his early influences in hardcore, post-hardcore, and emo genres. Referencing bands like Linkin Park, Glassjaw, Fall Out Boy, and My Chemical Romance, Sykes emphasized the album’s nostalgic touch, blended with contemporary elements for a fresh feel.

Furthermore, Sykes discussed the album’s sound spectrum, noting its wide range and the intent to retain a raw, unhinged energy, reminiscent of their earlier days. This return to rawness is evident in their recently released track, “AmEN!”.

In a conversation with NME, Sykes described the upcoming album as “pure fun” with no restrictions, harking back to a time when the band had a sole focus on creating the music they loved. The band’s line-up comprises Oli Sykes (vocals), Lee Malia (guitar), Matt Kean (bass), Mat Nicholls (drums), and Jordan Fish (keyboard).
