SYWH reader Lincoln awared us to this facepalm-y story on NME:
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.
If this isn’t proof that 2012 will be all about the No Fun Club, I don’t know what is. On the bright side, it will be really funny to see Tumblrsluts and former scenebros continue their transformation into hipster fggts.
