Bring Me the Horizon may release new music "sooner rather than later," says Oli Sykes

ABC/Randy HolmesBring Me the Horizon took three years in between releasing their new album Amo and its predecessor, 2015's That's the Spirit. According to frontman Oli Sykes, the wait for the band's next record shouldn't be as long.

"It would be nice to start writing again without the pressure of a date," Sykes tells Kerrang!. "But we are thinking about it, and quite possibly people could be hearing new music sooner rather than later."

Sykes adds that the band generally felt that the wait between That's the Spirit and Amo was "too long."

"We've kinda got a studio set up on tour now," he says. "We've started to think about writing and when we want to, and basically never having to get back to the studio and write for six months."

Amo, which dropped in January, found the British rockers experimenting with different sounds, including pop and electronic elements. Sykes feels that the experimental nature of that album has emboldened Bring Me to continue trying new things.

"I think [Amo] is so different to anything we've done in the past, we do feel like we're gaining a lot of fans as well as losing a lot of fans, and we want to give people more to get excited about and do stuff," Sykes says.

"I guess that last album made us feel like we could literally put anything out," he adds. "We could go back and write something extremely heavy, or we could write the poppiest song in the world -- or a mixture."

Bring Me the Horizon wrapped a U.S. tour in support of Amo over the weekend. They'll be back stateside in August to play Lollapalooza.
