Bring Me the Horizon Announce 'Sempiternal'
A press release explains that the song cycle was recorded over a three-month period with producer Terry Date (Linkin Park, Deftones, Soundgarden), and also features production and mixing work from David Bendeth (A Day to Remember, Paramore). According to the Sykes, their fourth full-length found the band "laying down ideas and riffs and working on them tirelessly" before arriving at the "very uplifting but yet sad sound" that courses through Sempiternal.
The singer added, without giving specifics, that his lyrics this time around are the best he's ever penned, stating: "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."
The LP is also the first to feature new keyboardist Jordan Fish, who Sykes notes "opened up so many more possibilities" with his synth work. You can check out the group's evolved sound via a stream of the previously revealed first single "Shadow Moses," which you'll find beneath Sempiternal's tracklist. Also, at the bottom of the page you'll find an album trailer.
