Bring The Horizon‘s Oli Sykes has said that “rap is almost the new punk”, arguing that “rock has gone soft, miserable and boring”.
The Sheffield band are set to return in January with their hotly-anticipated new album ‘Amo’. Speaking of the diversity and further sonic shift away from their metal roots on the record, Sykes said that it was important for them to evolve in order to maintain an emotional connection.
Last week, the band’s closing night of their ‘First Love’ UK and European tour was hit by tragedy when a fan died during their Alexandra Palace show.
The band were this week confirmed to headline and curate a day at London’s All Points East 2019. They’ll be joined by Run The Jewels, Yonaka, IDLES and more.
