Sheffield’s Bring Me The Horizon are one of the UK’s biggest contemporary alternative rock acts, with latest album ‘That’s The Spirit’ charting at #1 in the US, Canada and Australia (the band’s third consecutive Australian #1), #2 in the UK and New Zealand, #3 in Sweden, #4 in Ireland, #5 in Belgium and The
Netherlands and #6 in Germany. Upon release week the top 10 singles in the iTunes Rock Chart were all comprised of tracks from the record. The album received outstanding response from the press (5/5
Kerrang, 10/10 Rock Sound, 10/10 Alternative Press). First single ‘Throne’ was BBC Radio 1’s Hottest Record and was subsequently added to the station’s A-list. The following single ‘True Friends’ was also added to the A-List. This string of success echoes previous single ‘Drown’, which was A-listed for 5 weeks over the 2014 Christmas period.
The band are a truly international act, as the band’s last touring itinerary boasts – during their last album campaign for ‘Sempiternal’, the band performed on headline tours spanning the UK, Europe, Australia, South East Asia and a 40-date sell out US run, boasting over 76,000 tickets sold. The band also performed at numerous festival appearances including Warped Tour US, Australia’s Soundwave Festival and Main Stage at the UK’s Download Festival. The band’s live status is greater than ever, having headlined a sold out Wembley Arena in December 2014 and performing as main support to Metallica on the Main Stage at Reading & Leeds festival in 2015. The band’s touring schedule for their new record ’That’s The Spirit’ has already seen them headline an extensive run of North and Sound America, Europe, Russia, and the UK, culminating with a sold out show at London’s Alexandra Palace In November 2015.
2016 has seen the band undertake their busiest itinerary yet, with headline performances across Australia, Japan, Asia, Europe and the USA.
Additionally, the band took on a hefty selection of European festivals throughout Summer. A potential highlight of the year came in the form of their sold out show Royal Albert Hall in April in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust, backed by a full live orchestra. To finish off the year, the band played six arenas across the UK, including two O2 arenas in London, one of which was sold out. Having seen the band also make national headlines for their appearance at the NME awards, it looks as though 2016 has certainly escalated the bands career to new heights.
