Photo Review: Bring Me The Horizon “First Love” World Tour – Orlando, FL 1/25/19

On January 25th the legendary band Bring Me The Horizon, whose been around for 15 years released their latest album Amo. It was also the same night they took over the CFE Arena in Orlando, FL for night two of their North American leg of the “First Love” world tour, and our photojournalist Savannah Rowley was there to capture all the action. With supporting acts Fever 333 and Thrice, this was one night we won’t forget.

Starting the night off was Fever 333 featuring frontman Jason Butler, previously known in the band Letlive; and damn the band really knew how to put on a show. Playing familiar songs such as “Made in America”, “Burn It” and “Trigger” – once Butler got into the crowd, he spoke about their song “Made in America” and how it relates politically to today’s society, as well as keeping the safety of their fans a main priority, including a shoutout to all the women in the arena that night.

Next up was Thrice, well known for their songs “Only Us”, “Hurricane”, and “The Earth Will Shake” the band continued the night with full-fledged rock while anticipated fans waited for Bring Me The Horizon to take the stage.

Lastly, the band everyone was waiting to see, Bring Me The Horizon took the stage. Opening with “i apologise if you feel something” off their latest album Amo, they dove into their hit single “Mantra” followed by Sempiternal‘s “House of Wolves.” The band continued to play hits off of their latest album Amo such as “Wonderful Life” and “Medicine”, including a first live performance of “Nihilist Blues.” They played popular songs off Sempiternal  and That’s the Spirit such as “Sleepwalking”, “Can You Feel My Heart” and “Doomed.” The whole time you could see the smile on Oliver Sykes face as he sang into the crowd. I believe this is the band’s happiest time and they can only go up with their latest album release and this tour.

Overall what an amazing show, you definitely don’t want to miss this tour when it comes through your area. You can buy tickets to upcoming shows here. We can’t wait till these bands come back!

Bring Me The Horizon reveals setlist for current First Love world tour

With the band’s 6th full-length dropping in January of 2019, Bring Me The Horizon have reached seemingly endless heights. Their highly anticipated First Love world tour, celebrating the impending release of Amo, has seen the band’s crowds swell to new levels. With 6 albums worth of material to draw on (as of January, anyway), longtime fans of the band are probably wondering whether anything off Suicide Season or even Count Your Blessings will see a slot in the headlining setlist. The short answer is no, but there is good news for fans of their newer material, as the band’s setlist for the Hamburg date of the tour has been revealed. Included are a few deeper cuts from Sempiternal, the usual suspects from That’s The Spirit, the band’s two new tracks, and a few more you might not have seen coming. Check out the full set list below.

Bring Me The Horizon unveil new song, “Mantra”

Could they get any bigger at this point? Well, yes, Bring Me The Horizon will continue to grow in stature, as after That’s The Spirit dropped in 2015, they became major headlining acts anywhere they went, worldwide. With the release of their new song “Mantra”, the bar just got raised – and you’ll likely see hundreds of covers of the track by the end of August. You can check out the song below.

While vocalist Oliver Sykes does scream on the song, it’s short-lived – “Mantra”, as a whole, is an alt-rock affair with a very catchy chorus, proving the band hasn’t gone full-on pop.
