Triple J: Can you talk about the idea of Eve and how it plays a role in your show? Where did the idea come from?

Oli Sykes: Initially, Eve was just something we thought we’d do for Reading and Leeds, but it quickly took on a life of its own. This narrative started forming and influenced our next record more than I thought it would. Eve essentially became this very important entity for the show, and I thought we could actually carry on a story here. The kids seem to love the immersiveness of it. It’s really turned into a significant part of the narrative in our new album, serving as a good plot device for the themes and messages I’m trying to convey on a personal level. It’s turned into something that feels more like a story or a video game or a movie.

Triple J: Do you think the live shows you’ve been doing lately have changed the trajectory of the album in any way?

Oli Sykes: It was weird because when we did “Survival Horror,” we hadn’t been playing shows due to lockdown, so that record was made without any live feel. But this next one, you do feel certain tempos or bounce and how people react to things live, which influences us. Honestly, a lot of the stuff we’ve been doing recently is just we make it, and then we worry about how it’s going to translate live. But yes, it does usually influence us on some level, especially because I’ve been writing on tour as well. So, there’s actually a lot more time to write than you might think. We play for an hour and a half at night, so we do have a full day, though it’s not as much time as you’d think with press and other day activities.

Triple J: Twenty years on from your first EP, it seems like Bring Me the Horizon is stronger than ever. How do each of you feel at this point in your career?

Matt Nicholls: Well, we’re feeling older now, but honestly, we all feel pretty good. It’s surprising where we can take it from here. Twenty years this month actually since we’ve been a band and played our first show. We didn’t even think we’d still be around 20 months later, let alone 20 years. But it’s just that old saying, you just gotta ride the wave and see where it takes you. Fortunately for us, it’s taken us 20 years down the line. We’re all a bit older, a bit achier, but we’re still good.

Oli Sykes: Right, I’d say we’re happier than we’ve ever been as a unit. The vibe is so good. Creatively, we’ve learned so much over these 20 years, especially in the last five years when things were getting really big for us. We’ve learned a lot of lessons about who we want to be and how we want to play this game. We’ve found a really good spot where the creation of our music and everything we put out is the most important thing, over fame, success, money, all that kind of stuff. We’re in a real good spot where we just like, we’ve had a taste of that world and realized that at the end of the day, when this is all done, we want to look back and be proud of the work we did because that’s all we really care about.

You can watch the full interview below.

Bring Me The Horizon have also recently released a teaser for the new album stating “It’s time for a new era.” Delayed since August 2023, POST HUMAN: NeX GEn is slated for a summer 2024 release.
