As the years have passed by, iconic metalcore band Bring Me The Horizon have evolved into a more alternative/electronic rock band, and nobody’s complaining, despite the countless boyband jokes that came with their new image. Off the back of the band’s brand new album dropping 25th Jan 2019, a killer east-coast Australian tour in April is in the works.
The growth and transformation of this band has been absolutely huge, from the angst-filled ‘Sempiternal’ days, to the more upbeat ‘That’s The Spirit’ era. Each of the band’s albums take separate levels of individual favourites, due to their dramatically different styles, but are all truly works of art on their own and when combined and played together live.
Constantly impressing fans with new music, image, marketing and branding campaigns, followers are constantly hooked on what these guys’ next move will be. Singer Oli Sykes never fails to impress with his mesmerising vocals and catchy, relevant lyrics, while the rest of the band continue to produce their distinguished electronic elements and downtune riffing. Here is the first anthem the band dropped from their highly anticipated album ‘Amo’.
The album ‘That’s The Spirit’ was definitely the band’s biggest turning point, although their previous ‘Sempiternal’ helped shape and define the band. Sempiternal contains a variety of songs with varying themes and motives, with the right amount of darkness. The album represents the band’s high intensity, as seen in the song Can You Feel My Heart below.
The atmosphere at the Margaret Court Arena show in Melbourne in 2017 was like no other, with an exciting stage show containing stunning lighting with a little fire thrown in. The huge room was filled with an eager and a highly diverse crowd to set the scene. Finishing with their hit ‘Drown’, it was an unforgettable night, and there is full faith that this exhilarating feeling will absolutely be doubled on their upcoming tour.
Following this band’s journey, there is a clear distinction between albums, and the perfect sounds to always keep you guessing. Their live show is highly unique and consists of a rollercoaster of emotions and vibes. If you’re still not convinced on how great Bring Me The Horizon are, check out this live video of the happy song!
The band spent November of this year doing what they do best, touring Europe and the United Kingdom, and have played several shows in the past alongside other iconic bands in the metalcore scene including A Day To Remember, Parkway Drive and Of Mice & Men.
Tracks such as The Happy Song, Throne and Drown from the band’s most recent album ‘That’s The Spirit’ have become anthems in the alternative world, and were the highlight of Bring Me The Horizon’s last Australian tour in 2017. Enhancing the shows were While She Sleeps and Aussies Hands Like Houses, who set the scene for a series of nights to remember.
As the hype continues for Bring Me The Horizon’s next tour in 2019, we come to the end of a long three year wait for a new album. Support act/s are yet to be announced with ample speculation amongst future attendees. It is unknown what the future holds when it comes to Bring Me The Horizon, but we’re undoubtedly in for a surprise.
