Bring Me The Horizon are streaming their fourth album "Sempiternal" in its entirely, which you can hear in the player below.
The global release date has been moved to April 1 except the US, where it will arrive on April 2, due to "overwhelming demand."
"There's a very euphoric sound coursing through the album, a very uplifting but yet sad sound," said frontman Oli Sykes (via Blabbermouth). "Electronically, it's far more advanced than anything we've done before."
Sykes adds that writing "Sempiternal" was completely different to their normal process. "We worked from a computer, laying down ideas and riffs and working on them tirelessly until we had what we wanted," he said.
Sykes adds: "The lyrical theme is everything. My head was a lot clearer when writing this time and it allowed me to write from a different perspective. It's the best stuff I've ever written, in my opinion. It's very dramatic, quite blunt, and at times sarcastic, but the biggest part of it is how it is combined with the music to bring the listener vivid imagery and emotion. I think we really managed to pull that off."
