In 2020 Bring Me The Horizon released their record "Post Human: Survival Horror". They announced they had a plan for a 4-EP 'Post Human' series concept. It consists of a concept with different music styles with each release. In an interview with NME Oli Sykes talks about the Post Human series and why it's taking longer than they expected.
"It's almost like we've been backlogged; now the world is up and running again. In between other commitments such as families, kids, and even my own [Drop Dead clothing] brand, it's just about finding the time. We are chipping away at it. I also think we feel as though the bar has been set so high for us. I feel like we have this pretty incredible [live] set now. Any song we write now has to be good enough to justify its place on the setlist."
He adds "I'm also so averse to making music for the sake of consumption. I feel like so many artists just put a song out or do a collab just to make money. I just feel as though there are not many iconic songs anymore. Songs where it's clear that a lot of graft has gone into them."
"Maybe [Bring Me The Horizon] should be doing that a bit more, like, 'Let's get some fucking music out and make some money.' But, you know, it's just not in my heart to do that."

"I'd rather spend three months working on a song in order to put out something special; this is not a case of writers' block, we're just taking our time with it and making sure we're doing something different, which gets increasingly harder as your catalogue gets bigger."
In conclusion I think it would be worth the wait for fans of Bring Me The Horizon. The band is ensuring that they are putting out quality music. In the meantime, be sure to check out their latest singles "Die4U" and "Strangers." And if you're looking for some new BMTH merch, we've got you covered.
