Bring Me The Horizon album set for release

Official press release: Already being herald as one of the most anticipated albums of the year, Bring Me The Horizon's upcoming fourth studio album, Sempiternal will be the defining sound of heavy music in 2013 and it is scheduled for release on April 30th via Epitaph Records. Proving to be perpetual favorites among fans, the album's first single "Shadow Moses" came charging out of the gates last week after premiering on Zane Lowe's BBC's Radio 1, forcing Epitaph to post the song on YouTube a week in advance due to popular demand. "There's a very euphoric sound coursing through the album, a very uplifting but yet sad sound," says front-man Oliver Sykes. "Electronically, it's far more advanced than anything we've done before." The five piece, consisting of Oliver Sykes, Lee Malia, Matt Kean, Matt Nicholls and Jordan Fish, recorded Sempiternal over a three month period with super producer Terry Date (Linkin Park, Deftones, Soundgarden). The band also brought in David Bendeth (A Day To Remember, Paramore) to add to the all-star production line-up and mix the album. "Writing Sempiternal was a completely different process," comments Sykes. "We worked from a computer, laying down ideas and riffs and working on them tirelessly until we had what we wanted." For the first time, Sempiternal sees a new member appearing on the record, Jordan Fish, who takes on keyboard duties on the record as well as during live performances. "Bringing Jordan into the mix changed things completely; he opened up so many more possibilities." Sykes goes on to say, "The lyrical theme is everything. My head was a lot clearer when writing this time and it allowed me to write from a different perspective. It's the best stuff I've ever written in my opinion. It's very dramatic, quite blunt, and at times sarcastic, but the biggest part of it - is how it is combined with the music to bring the listener vivid imagery and emotion. I think we really managed to pull that off." Sempiternal is an embracing ride through soaring vocals, supercharged melodies and what can only be described as spine tingling metal anthems. After the critical and commercial success of their previous albums, There Is A Hell, Believe Me I've Seen It. There Is A Heaven, Let's Keep It A Secret (2010) and their breakout success Suicide Season (2008), BMTH plan to take heavy music to the next level, incorporating the most dynamic elements of hard music to create the most exhilarating album of the year.

Oli Sykes, you're a tool. Trying to talk in an intellectual way about music like this is like rearyzing the nutritional benefits of a McDouble and fries or preaching about all of the great work Lil Wayne has done for his community through his lyrics. Just fcking stop already.

I saw you guys a few years back with Slipknot, Bullet For My Valentine, Emmure and The World We Knew. Well, actually I'm not gonna lie; I skipped your set cause I appreciate good music and those other four bands tore it up. Their sets were awesome; can't wait to see them again sometime soon.


anonymous 1/15/2013 8:31:13 AM

I remember back a very long time when metal used to have technical lead guitar and catchy melodies and meaningful lyrics. Stuff like that. Too bad those days are long gone.
