5 Facts You (Maybe) Didn't Know About Bring Me The Horizon

So you think you're a massive BMTH fan? Well, here's five little facts you may not know about the rockers...

1. Yo ho me hearties! They actually got their name from the Pirates of the Caribbean movie. Johnny Depp’s quote at the end of the first  ‘Now… bring me that horizon’ struck a nerve with our swashbuckling musicians and Bring Me The Horizon were born!

2. They formed at college in Sheffield back in 2004 (look how young they look, everybody awwww).

They join a long legacy of amazing bands and musicians to come out of the city including Artic Monkeys, Pulp, Def Leppard and who could forget “yooooou’re gorgeous” one-hit-wonders Babybird. (links?)

3. They are top 40 chart toppers getting to no. 17 in the UK singles chart with their absolute tune, Drown.

Their 2013 album ‘Sempiternal’ reached no.3 in the UK official album chart, and their latest album ‘That’s the spirit’ released last year, narrowly missed out on the top spot to Stereophonics‘ ninth studio album. The boys did good and their awards cabinet is filling up nicely too!

4. Not only is lead singer Oli Sykes is a beast on the mic and in the studio, he also has his own clothing line Drop Dead which he started when he was just 21.

We’re even told that his mum helps out running his flagship store in London!

5. They have one of THE most loyal fan bases ever…seriously don’t get on the wrong side of a BMTH fan! You can even find Bring Me The Horizon fan fiction on the web, oooerrr!  

BTMH are set to blow the roof off Barclaycard Arena, Birmingham, 4th November 2016. Snap up your Bring Me The Horizon tickets quick it’s going to be a good ‘un!
