Sorry Bring Me The Horizon purists, but the band won’t be returning to their metalcore roots any time soon.
As you’re no doubt aware, the Sheffield fivesome’s most recent album That’s The Spirit represented their most dramatic sonic shift yet, and it seems like its follow-up is gonna be along the same lines.
Speaking with the BBC Radio 1 Rock Show, keyboardist and producer Jordan Fish spilled some beans about BMTH’s next studio effort, revealing that “not going to be a super, super heavy record”.
That said, “it’s not going to be a pop record” either.
“I don’t think we’d ever do a straight, boring pop record,” Fish explains (via Alt Press). “We’ll probably take bits from what we did on Sempiternal, bits from what we did on That’s The Spirit and take it off in a different direction. As long as it’s interesting and exciting, that’s all I really care about.”
Expanding more on the band’s future musical direction, Fish also addressed the fact that he knows a whole bunch of fans want to see them go heavy again.
“I understand there’s probably a load of people who want us to be super heavy, and a load of people who only like the last album, who don’t like the heavier stuff,” he says. “That’s just the nature of a band that’s changed styles so much across the course of their career. For us, I just want to write something good. Where it sits genre-wise is something someone else can worry about.”
It comes after the lads previously expressed an intention to go “weirder” and “dancier” on their next album.
Well, no matter what the new shit sounds like, hopefully we don’t have to wait too long to hear it.
