Bring Me The Horizon planning ‘post-rock’ influenced fourth album

Jona Weinhofen also says the band have 'really big aspirations' for their new LP

Bring Me The Horizon have said that post-rock bands like Explosions In The Sky and This Will Destroy You are set to be a big influence on their fourth studio album.

The band are soon set to begin work on the follow-up to ‘There Is A Hell, Believe Me I’ve Seen It. There Is A Heaven, Let’s Keep It A Secret’ and are likely to be back in the studio by summer 2012, with guitarist Jona Weinhofen revealing that he and guitarist Lee Malia have been getting inspired by post-rock for their new material.

Weinhofen told Alternative Press: “Lee and I are listening to a lot of post-rock lately. It might sound strange, but we listen to this laid-back, epic music and think ‘If this was heavy – if we made metal out of this kind of music – it would be exactly what we want to sound like”.


The guitarist also said that the band have “really big aspirations” for their fourth album, but they haven’t got much written for the record as yet.

He said: “We have really big aspirations for this record. However, there is a very little amount of new material, we’re not very good at getting motivated to write on tour”.

The band have also unveiled a new tour film which has been shot throughout their extensive world tour. The film, which is 46 minutes long and which was shot by frontman Oli Sykes’ brother Tom, is extremely NFSW and you can watch it by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.
