Last year saw the online release of hard-hitting Sheffield born heroes Bring Me The Horizon EP Post Human: Survival Horror which saw them team up with YUNGBLUD, BABYMETAL and Nova Twins as the metalcore band continues to explore the nasty edge of electronica. And now, their essential EP finally gets a long awaited physical release on CD and Vinyl. Plus, check out this amazing Bundle which contains both. Tickets for their arena tour in support of their killer EP are on sale with Gigantic!
Talking to NME, singer Olly Sykes explains that the post-apocolyptic themes in Post Human: Survival Horror have almost become prophetic, “‘Dear Diary is about a world going into lockdown and what mental effects that has, ‘Parasite Eve’ is about the dawn of a new crisis and ‘Teardrops’ is about being overwhelmed by bad new. We all know that we’re on a runaway train. Wherever we’re heading is not good unless we change it.”
Rousing alt-rockers Lonely The Brave have grown a dedicated following, drawn to their huge anthems packed with passion. Now, their fans will be thrilled to hear that the Cambridge based band have just dropped third album The Hope List which takes their emotional energy to even greater heights.
The first record to feature new singer Jack Bennett, The Hope List recounts the hard times for the band, and the strength and courage it took to keep pushing through. Whilst its taken them some time to create, the resulting record is a real creative triumph for Lonely The Brave, as drummer Gavin ‘Mo’ Edgeley explains; “We didn’t rush at all; it’s been a couple years. Everything has been our decision as well and just to get the opportunity to be able to do that as a band is really rare and I’m really glad we could do it. It’s all us. Jack’s done an amazing job on it, mixing, recording and his vocals on it are incredible. The last song on the album is the best song we’ve ever written in my opinion. It just blew me away the first time I heard that.”
Lonely The Brave will be touring throughout April, playing major headline dates in support of The Hope List. Plus, you can catch them when they make an appearance at awesome festival 2000Trees – arriving at Upcote Farm, Withington from Thursday 8th till Sunday 11th of July.
