As if two full tours, and like five festivals wasn't enough, Bring Me The Horizon has announced more tour dates.
From October 1 through October 25 they will be touring all over North America with Beartooth, Pvris and Issues, PLUS playing Rock Allegiance, Louder Than Life, Aftershock, KBTZ Buzzfest, AND Knotfest festivals. Then they're going over to Europe to perform with Pvris, and Neck Deep to tour! They're actually now going over there to kick everything off Halloween night at Guidihall in South Hampton.
They also added shows for the 24, two on the 29th, and one on the 30th of November. Those shows will be at the Academy in Glasgow, Birmingham, and Bristol.
Boy, BMTH has a lot to do coming up soon. Its all in promotion of That's The Spirit, which is out now. Below are all of the tour dates for BMTH.
The band then gets a break for a little over a month before heading over to Australia to play the Soundwave festival. For more information, please go to Bring Me The Horizon's website!
Earlier today a new 'rumor' was brought to our attention and this rumor is very elaborate and incredibly dumb. It would make an amazing fiction book, but trying to pass it off as 'news' is just plain silly.
An article showed up in news feeds today from Rock Feed that said Linkin Park was suing Bring Me The Horizon for stealing a very special program that they created so they could make a unique style of 'computercore.' The rumor claimed that the program was on a 1997 Mac computer, and the program was lost right after the release of Linkin Park's Meteroa album.
After hearing Bring Me The Horizon's, "Throne", which is featured on their brand new album That's The Spirit, they were just positive they stole their program and insisted they get it back because, "There can only be one."
Um...what? What is this crap? If you hear this rumor, and please laugh at it and blow it off because it sounds like the plot line for some heist movie that involves musicians for some reason. We found no actual sources for this whatsoever, neither band has acknowledged it either. All that could be found that even connected the two bands were people trying to say Bring Me The Horizon sounded like Linkin Park somehow, and articles about when Oli Sykes met Chester Bennington. That is it.
Its a great story, but that's all it is. Funny how people
Five Finger Death Punch posted on Facebook about From Ashes To New, one of the bands supporting them on the Got Your Six tour.
They acknowledge that a band their size can do other very talented bands a lot of good. They posted the following, along with From Ashes To New's video for "Downfall."
"In the early days of 5FDP, we were fortunate enough to be given a chance to play on some huge tours thanks to bands who were in a position to give some new guys a chance to be seen… Now that we’re in a position to do the same, it’s important to us to continue to #PayItForward.
Two years ago, we took out Gemini Syndrome… last year we brought you Nothing More… and now, we’re excited to bring you this new band From Ashes to New. Trust us…you’re going to love these guys live on this tour."
If more bigger bands would get excited about taking smaller bands under their wing, that would be amazing. Many do, and its great!
You can catch both Five Finger Death Punch and From Ashes To New on tour now through October 10 with Papa Roach and In This Moment. Check 5FDP's website for more information!
9 years ago today Papa Roach released their fourth studio album, The Paramour Sessions! They brought this to fans attention on Facebook, and asked fans what their favorite songs off the album were.
Answers varied greatly. "Forever", "To Be Loved", "Reckless", "Roses On My Grave", "My Heart Is a Fist", ect.
We however, would say "What Do You Do?" and "Forever." Congratulations on your album turning 9! Before you know it, F.E.A.R (their latest album that isn't even a year old yet) is going to be 9, and this one will be turning 18! Time flies!
Speaking of time flying, Papa Roach is now on the Got Your Six tour with Five Finger Death Punch, From Ashes To New and In This Moment! Before you know it, that will be over! It ends October 10 at the Rock Allegiance festival. Get your tickets now while you still can! Further information can be found on 5FDP's website.
Well, we wish that was true, but alas, it is not. Heat stroke is a massive issue, and you do need to always remember to take care of yourself while in the heat. Or else you risk getting very sick.
Nothing More's stage tech collapsed today from heat stroke at the Fall Ball 2015 in Tucson, AZ. Luckily, he is alright now, but that's still scary none the less. The band also said they all were on the verge of passing out in the direct sun as well, but managed to get through it.
Take care of yourselves and have fun while rocking out! Here is a picture they took and posted on their Facebook page from Fall Ball!
Keep in mind too that the Outbreak tour with Nothing More, Marmozets, The Color Morale, Turbowolf and Seperations begins September 14! Get your tickets now!
Via Facebook, Nothing More announced that their drummer, Paul O'Brien has chosen to step down from the band. Along with a photo from their first time to perform in Tokyo, came a message from Paul himself, and Jonny, Mark and Daniel.
"As a group we have endured our fair share of change over the years. Sometimes you are given the luxury of the change being your decision, allowing you to mentally prepare; but other times change barrels down on you like a freight train.
When we started Nothing More we committed ourselves to one another in the ambitious pursuit of happiness and success for both the individual and the group as a whole. When a member no longer feels that deep joy from revolving their life around their instrument then they must go and find that joy again for both themselves and the people around them. That being said, it is with love in our hearts and tears in our eyes that we announce the departure of our dear brother, Paul OBrien, as the drummer of Nothing More. It goes without saying that we love you Paul and we know that you will be successful in all of your future endeavors. We count it as a sheer blessing to have been able to share such a major part of our lives with you. You will always be a member of our family... and forever the guy to send the most ridiculous and unexpected internet meme to the group thread on our phones!
Before we turn this over to Paul’s message below, some of you may be wondering what is next for Nothing More. The answer, as always, is that we will continue this amazing journey. We left no stone un-turned in our search for an amazing drummer to finish out our 2015 tours in the US and Europe and we can’t wait for you all to meet Ben Anderson on the road this fall. We have a little over 50 shows left before we head back into the studio and we are going to give it everything we have. See you on the road!
~Jonny, Mark & Daniel"
The hardest decision I’ve ever made was to step down from Nothing More. This is a very important band with an amazing message and it’s been an absolute honor to be a part of something so much bigger than myself. I’ve given every ounce of my heart and soul to this. Being on the road isn’t for everyone, and I’ve learned through a very real experience of playing live for hundreds of thousands of people that I am one of those individuals. Being in the spotlight so much triggered some major anxiety issues that were buried deep down inside of me, and it’s just too much of a mental struggle to carry on. Depression is very real. On the road it can feel like there’s just no escape. This is something that I’ve carried around for a long time. And it’s gotten to the point where I have to make a move to do what’s best for myself and my future.
I want to thank my brothers for life, Daniel, Mark, Jonny and Will. The things we’ve been through no one can ever take away from us. I love you guys more than words can describe. You’ve been so supportive of me through this difficult time, and that means the world to me. I know without a doubt that you guys will take this thing all the way to the top. I will always remember traveling the globe and seeing amazing things with you during this chapter of my life. I am eternally grateful to have had such an opportunity that most can only dream of. I’m always here for you…
I also want to say thank you to all of the supporters of Nothing More. The family, crew, friends, bands, label, management and fans. Far too many to name, but you all know exactly who you are. Every person that has ever bought a shirt, put us up for the night, fed us, carried gear off of stage, took us out on the road, booked a gig…………you’re a massive reason for the success of this band. We should continue to lift these guys up and help them achieve the ultimate greatness that we all know they are capable of.
What’s next for me? I plan to take it easy and lay low for a while. I’m very lucky to have my lady, family and close friends here at home who support me through everything. A quiet life out of the spotlight is where I’m headed. I’ve found happiness in that before, and i’m sure i’ll find it again. Music will always be a huge part of my life, and I would love to get into some studio session drumming. I’ve always been fascinated by the recording side of things. Maybe some producing, maybe some teaching…. I just need to get my head strait and smile again……..and I will.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you all for everything. Much love and respect-
We wish them all the best of luck. Sounds like Paul has a lot ahead of him, and Nothing More does as well, what with a tour, and festivals coming up.
