Speaking to DJ Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1, Oli Sykes teased that another announcement is coming in the ‘next couple of days’. Mac asked if there was an album, he replied: “I don’t wanna say. I say, I don’t wanna say – I don’t care – but I’ve been told to focus on this song. We’ve been working on stuff and we’ve got something exciting to announce in the next couple of days. I’m told if you go on our website there’ll be more information.”
