In August 2020, the band’s keyboardist Jordan Fish teased that the band was planning on releasing a series of releases. Speaking about the releases, keyboardist Fish stated:
“When we get into the other EPs, it’ll give us a chance to maybe get some other people on who are a bit more left-field or a bit more out of the box for our band.”
The band’s lead vocalist Sykes also stated that they would be releasing four EPs under the “Post Human” name, stating:
“They’ll each be totally different with their own sound and mood,” he said. “That’s one thing we’ve never really done. There’s often been an over-arching theme on our records, but the music has always felt like a collage. That’s cool and I like it, but sometimes you want a soundtrack for a certain occasion and emotion.”
