British metal band, Bring Me The Horizon are set to return to Australia for a headline tour and will be joined by Of Mice and Men and Crossfaith.
BMTH will be stopping over in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth for all-aged gigs starting with their first show on Saturday, October 5th at The Marquee in Brisbane. This comes after the band’s success of their fourth album, Sempiternal, which has been a smash for both critics and fans alike.
The Guardian newspaper named them one of the best, saying that BMTH “teeter on the brink of hugeness [with an album] polished to a devastating sheen by producer Terry Date. Sempiternal screams its ambition from the rooftops [with] its creators’ trademark blend of pounding riffs and modern pop gimmicks rendered in vivid shades.”
Furthermore, NME rated it 8 out of 10, saying it was “one of the year’s most accomplished metal albums”, and that “Sempiternal is packed full of sucker-punch moments… typifying the album’s muscular and impressive anthemics.”
Of Mice and Men will be joining the tour, while they currently finish work on their third album. This comes after a hectic two-year period in which they released their first album Of Mice and Men in 2010 and The Flood in 2011.
Crossfaith, who originated from Japan, are working their way through their American Warped Tour as well as completing their third record, Apocalyze, which is set to make its premiere in August this year.
