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!

Listen to a METAL version of Bring Me The Horizon’s new single, “Medicine”

Reception to the newest Bring Me The Horizon single, “Medicine”, has been decidedly mixed. While older fans of the band are shocked the band (who used to play borderline deathcore/grindcore) now write full-blown pop songs, it’s another track destined for the top of the charts. It begs the question, though – what if the track was morphed into a metal version – possibly a throwback to their Sempiternal days?

Youtube guitarist extraordinare Nik Nocturnal and Makari // WVNDER vocalist Andy Cizek recently teamed up on a new take on “Medicine”. Spoiler alert: It’s pretty shocking how well it works, and while it’s not like Bring Me The Horizon have abandoned rock completely (see: “Mantra”, “Wonderful Life”), it’s a throwback of sorts to the fans that really got into the band around the Sempiternal album cycle. After all, it’s still an album that countless rock and metal bands draw inspiration from.

Bring Me The Horizon releases striking new single, “Medicine”

After teasing it via social media just a few days ago, Bring Me The Horizon have released the 3rd single from their upcoming album Amo, “Medicine”. The new track is an electronically-led song that, according to keyboardist Jordan Fish in a track-by-track with Kerrang!, is “about people who are negative influences and how when they leave your life things get much better. It’s still got characteristics of some of the bigger songs we’ve done before. You’d need to ask Oli who exactly that’s about, but I can think of a few people it might be about…”.

The rock band is preparing for a massive 2019, with lots of worldwide tour dates – including a run of headlining dates in the USA with Thrice and The Fever 333 supporting. Check out the new song below – amo drops January 25th, 2019.
