Bring Me The Horizon singer Oli Sykes has given England’s Kerrang! magazine an update on the progress of the band’s sixth studio album, saying that the group has around 30 song ideas in the works and hopes to get new music in front of fans by the end of the year. Speaking about the direction of the new material, Sykes said, “I don’t think any Bring Me The Horizon fan is going to be surprised at this next album sounding different to the last one.” Sykes added that Bring Me The Horizon has no qualms about aiming for commercial success, explaining, “We like the idea of breaking into the mainstream. We’re not ashamed of that, we don’t see it as selling out. We see it as a great challenge, to make music that can be adored by more people but still retain who we are. That is the goal.” Sykes cited Twenty One Pilots as an inspiration, saying, “(They’re) popular and accessible, but without compromising their integrity or who they are.
