We were apparently completely out of the loop on something.
Wednesday night was apparently the NME Awards, where Bring Me The Horizon won the Innovation Award, and both BMTH and Coldplay attended
We are only just now hearing about this, but apparently Oli Sykes, BMTH's frontman 'trashed' Coldplay's table during Bring Me The Horizon's performance. A fan filmed the 'trashing', and its caused quite the stir.
To me, it doesn't look like much at all. Yes, it is Coldplay's table, and yes he does knock some stuff over, but it doesn't look that deliberate.
However, given the latest controversy among fans regarding the album artwork for Coldplay's latest album looking very similar to Sempiternal's, everyone had to take it too far.
In an interview, just after the event, the band's keyboardist, Jordan Fish was quoted saying, "I don't think Oli was aiming for Coldplay. I twas just whoever was nearest and it just happened to be Coldplay."
Oli then spoke up about it as well. ”I had no sound in my ears so I thought 'Well, there might be sound out there.' There weren't sound out there, so when I came back there was a table, which I got on. There wasn't any sound on there, but it was a bit more energetic up there. It was in no way a protest against Coldplay.”
But of course, everyone has to assume its something malicious, and someone's always out to get someone else.
What the boys in BMTH said makes perfect sense to me. It was all innocent, just people assumed it was something more.
Also, just throwing this out there, for the record, BMTH doesn't own that 'logo.' Its the flower of life which is used in religions all over the world and has been for an extremely long time. It is also thought of as a structure that forms music. A google search said, "The distances between the spheres is identical to the distances between the tones and the half tones in music.
If you want to stay up to date with the good things BMTH does, not just the drama, be sure to head over to their website! Over there you will see all of their upcoming tour dates and festival appearances! They are extremely busy and will be touring the whole starting in late April! See their website for more info, seriously.
These are just some of the happenings in the music world. There will always be something that Immortal Music did not cover, but here are just some events.
