BRING ME THE HORIZON


Bring Me the Horizon began in 2004.[6][7]
The band were originally signed to Thirty Days of Night Records and were the first band to be signed to that label.
They released their debut album Count Your Blessings in October 2006 in the United Kingdom and in August 2007 in the United States.
Bring Me the Horizon recorded their second studio album Suicide Season in Sweden with Fredrik Nordström. The album was released in September 2008.
The band embarked on their first headline tour of the US, as well as appearing in the 2008 Warped Tour. Bring Me the Horizon also joined Mindless Self IndulgenceIn Case of FireBlack Tide and Dir en grey on the Kerrang! and Relentless 2009 UK tour.[citation needed] They also joined ThursdayCancer BatsFour Year Strong and Pierce the Veil on the Taste of Chaos 2009 North American tour.
In November 2009 Bring Me the Horizon released a remixed version of Suicide Season, titled Suicide Season: Cut Up!. Musicians and producers featured on the album include Ben Weinman from The Dillinger Escape PlanSonny Moore, L’Amour La Morgue (Ian Watkins from Lostprophets), Utah Saints and Shawn Crahan from Slipknot.[8]
In March 2009, guitarist Curtis Ward left the band; he was replaced by Australian guitarist Jona Weinhofen.[9]
The band's third album debuted at number 17 on the Billboard 200 in the US[10], number 13 on the UK Album Chart[11], and number 1 on the Australian Albums Chart[12], the UK Rock Chart[13] and the UK Indie Chart[14]. Despite reaching number 1 in Australia, the album's sales of 3,600 they gained to get there, is the lowest in the history of the ARIA charts.[15]

Controversy

Nottingham incident

While on tour in the United Kingdom allegations were made against vocalist Oliver Sykes that he urinated upon and then assaulted a female fan after a gig at Nottingham Rock City when she allegedly refused his sexual advances. Sykes was subsequently charged with urinating on the fan, but not with physical assault.[16] Online music zine Drowned In Sound claimed that Bring Me The Horizon were banned from Nottingham Rock City.[17] However the band's label Visible Noise denied these rumors and the band subsequently played Nottingham Rock City on 1 December 2007.[18]
On 13 April, Sykes appeared in Nottingham Magistrates Court on a charge of common assault relating to the alleged incident, to which he pleaded not guilty. The case was adjourned until early May.[19] On 3 May 2007 Sykes attended Nottingham Magistrates court for the second time and confirmed his not guilty plea. The case was adjourned again until 17 September.[20] Due to lack of evidence, all charges against Sykes were dropped.[21]

YouTube video with Architects

During a tour, Bring Me the Horizon and Architects filmed a video showing a staged fight between Oliver Sykes and Architects' lead singer Sam Carter. The video was uploaded toYouTube and outraged many Bring Me the Horizon fans, causing many to send hate mail towards Carter, whom later made it clear in an interview with Kerrang! that the whole thing was a joke, as did Sykes.[22]
