WHAT WE LEARNED FROM SEEING BRING ME THE HORIZON AT KOKO LAST NIGHT

Last night we went to see the most successful British metal band in years tear Camden a new one at a sold-out KOKO show. We’ve been psyched about this show since it was announced and it did not disappoint. Here’s a taster of what went down…

  • Crossfaith are the perfect support band to get the crowd moving and start circle pits at any moment.
  • You also can’t keep them out of the crowd, even during Bring Me The Horizon‘s set they were running out and jumping off stage – show-offs.
  • Oli Sykes is more northern than you.
  • The new songs sound ABSOLUTELY FUCKING HUGE. The House Of Wolves and Sleepwalking rousing a deafening responses from the sweaty-pitted crowd.
  • There ain’t no pit like a Bring Me pit.
  • It’s hard to please Oli Sykes with a wall of death as we “weren’t doing it right” and restarted from the barrier all the way to the sound desk. Ouch.
  • If you want to see chaos and flailing limbs then play a 14+ show – there’s a lot of kids not at school today thanks to broken bodies.
  • BMTH have left their older material behind with the entire set drawing from Sempiternal, There Is A Hell… and Suicide Season.
  • One guy screamed for more songs from the first album… to no avail.
  • We were SO right to put Oli on the cover of FRONT 181.

If you missed out on this tour then take a good hard look at yourself and hand in your metal card at the door. We’re already getting ourselves ready for their main stage show at Reading/Leeds this summer. Those fair-weather festival-goers are going to shit themselves.
