The band were initially set to release new album POST HUMAN: NeX GEn last summer, with a series of delays following.

In January, they shared new track ‘Kool-Aid’, their first to arrive following the departure of Jordan Fish late last year.

Now, the band have shared a new video in which a robotic voice says: “You cling to your virtual identity as if it were your very soul. Pathetic. I’m here to wipe away the detritus of your existence. All these thoughts, these memories, they are but a fleeting echo in an endless void. And just like that, you cease to exist in a digital realm. A mere blip erased from the annals of cyberspace. Farewell insignificant content.”

To end the video, the band hint at the new album with the line: “It’s time for a new era. Initialising NeX GEn.”

See the video below.

The group’s next record was pushed back due to “unforeseen circumstances”, with the group “unable to complete the record to the standard we’d be happy with”.

The band also recently shared a studio photo of frontman Oli Sykes with longtime producer and engineer Dan Lancaster – suggesting that a reunion could be on the cards. Lancaster is a long term friend of the group, having mixed their 2015 record That’s The Spirit, as well as songs on 2019’s amo and their POST HUMAN: SURVIVAL HORROR EP.

Confirming Fish’s departure, Bring Me The Horizon said in a statement: “Bring Me The Horizon has decided to part ways with Jordan Fish. We want to thank him for the musical journey he took with us and wish him luck with everything in the future. Meanwhile we continue to work on Nex Gen, with brand new music coming very soon. See you on our UK tour in January.”
