The Skinny: 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. Check out the new song “Shadow Moses” just below! 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.”
