Whilst cooped up during lockdown, Bring Me The Horizon have been writing and recording some new material, and the first song to come from those sessions is out now, called ‘Parasite Eve’.
The song was originally intended to be released on June 10th 2020, but the band postponed this due to the Black Lives Matter movement and protests, stating that they “don’t feel comfortable releasing and promoting anything that takes the focus off what’s important right now”.
Speaking on the meaning of the song and how it came to be, frontman Oliver Sykes had this to say.
“‘Parasite Eve’ came from an idea to write a survival horror song, but as the pandemic started to develop, the parallels were so similar it felt so close to the bone we decided to shelve it. As time went on, we started to feel how relevant it was and that instead of shying from it, that we should address the dark side, embrace it and process what’s going on… ‘Parasite Eve’ is our message of hope, wrapped in sadness and anger.”
‘Parasite Eve’ has been debuted with an accompanying video, which you can check out below.
The track is set to appear on the first of a quadrilogy of EPs which will be released under the overarching titled of ‘Post Human’.
More details on this project will be confirmed as it develops.
