As one of eight low key gigs to celebrate the release of their album, Sempiternal, Bring Me The Horizon play a sold-out show at the Pyramids, Southsea, tonight.
Sempiternal is the fourth studio album by the platinum-selling band and entered the UK album chart at No 3 when it was released at the beginning of April. It also reached No 1 in Australia, which is an extraordinary feat for a Sheffield-based metal band.
Formed in 2004, the five-piece have gone from hyped youngsters, winning the Kerrang Award for Best British Newcomers in 2006, to bringing their brand of metal to sell-out crowds the world over.
Sempiternal was their first full length album to be released through RCA Records and they recorded it over three months with producer Terry Date (Linkin Park, Deftones, Soundgarden).
Frontman Oli Sykes says: ‘We can’t wait for these shows. We’ve been away for so long and to come back and play the most intimate shows we’ve played in a long time is so exciting.’
