UK rockers Bring Me the Horizon have released their new single “Parasite Eve” in music video form. The new track, which you can check out below, marks the band’s first new music since the release of the act’s 2019 full-length record, ‘Amo.’
“This song is going to be part of a record that has the same feel along with [last year’s single] ‘Ludens’,” says vocalist Oliver Sykes in a new interview with NME. “We’ve just been winging it and recording from lockdown, and now we’re going to make four different records over the next year and they’ll all share the name ‘Post Human.’”
Oli continues to say: “They’ll each be tonally different with their own sound and mood. That’s one thing we’ve never really done. There’s often been an over-arching theme on our records, but the music has always felt like a collage. That’s cool and I like it, but sometimes you want a soundtrack for a certain occasion and emotion.”
He adds: “The idea behind ‘Post Human’ is looking at how we’ve stepped out of evolution and the food chain. If we can do that, then we can take responsibility for what we’ve done to the planet and become something better than what humans are right now.”
NME also note that the new single’s name is borrowed from the 1998 Playstation game ‘Parasite Eve,’ and that the song was recorded this past February before the current global crisis fully took form.
