Oliver Sykes celebrates the release of “amo”, says “It feels so Bring Me The Horizon again”

Bring Me The Horizon’s ascension from deathcore/metalcore youngsters to a confident act that straddles the line between pop, rock, and influences from a few other genres is at the very least, interesting. While we enjoyed the record quite a bit, the polarizing reaction to the record so far seems to be exactly what Bring Me The Horizon – specifically vocalist Oliver Sykes – desired.

While it has to be incredibly nerve-wracking to unleash such a different album (again!) to a fanbase that might not embrace it right away (or at all), BMTH have never been bigger. As the band’s headlining tour with Thrice and The Fever 333 gets underway, Oliver Sykes surely feels the pressure and weight of expectations, and in a recent Instagram post, had plenty to say about the new record, as well – while not discouraging those who may not be into the record no matter what.

i love how much this record is polarising peeps. Hasn’t been like this since we released suicide season. A lot of kids were quick to shit all over it.. because it was something very different from the scene we was in.. I 100% support and encourage people’s true opinions and if you are someone who’s only a fan of metal & hardcore with no exceptions, you are well within your right to hate this 🙂 but if you are open to more.. all I’m saying is if you judged this record after 1 listen, maybe go give it another 2. I’m pretty confident you’ll surprise yourself… But it’s so exciting to of made a record that makes people feel so much.. it feels so Bring Me The Horizon again. Thankyou for that.
And if your loving the record please, stream it on repeat, like, 24/7 🙂 See you tonight Atlanta!!
