Bring Me The Horizon have brought forward the release date of their upcoming album Sempiternal from Friday, 26th April. According to Sony Music, Australian fans can now expect the English outfit’s fourth studio album across all formats on Friday, 29th March.
Although the band state on their Facebook page that the new release date is due to popular demand, the shift was probably also the result of Sempiternal being leaked last week. Speaking with Music Feeds at Soundwave in Sydney the day before the leak, BMTH joked that the band had hired assassins to keep Sempiternal from being unofficially released.
Whatever the reasons for the March release dates, fans are ultimately the winners, with Sempiternal now only a few weeks away from hitting the shelves. In anticipation of the official release Bring Me The Horizon have offered up an official album stream for the next 3 days.
You can also head over to the BTMH’s official site and pre-order a deluxe copy of Sempiternal on CD and MP3, or also scoot over to iTunes. If you haven’t listened to the leak or just want to get a feel for the official finished product, you can stream BMTH’s Sempiternal below.
