Bring Me the Horizon released its sixth studio album, Amo, to mixed reviews in late January and set off on the “First Love Tour” in support of it. While fans are still wrapping their heads around the new album — which is more EDM than emo — the band’s set included far more songs from Sempiternal and That’s the Spirit. The show’s production succeeded in melding the band’s genre bending to create a cohesive, enjoyable show for the eyes and ears.
Thrice felt like a divergent choice for supporting act, but the alternative rock stalwarts had plenty of fans in the audience. The band released its tenth studio album in the fall of last year. Dustin Kensrue and Teppei Teranishi talk about the band’s legacy in our exclusive interview with the guys:
Fever333 was recently nominated for the Best Hard Rock Performance Grammy for “Made in America,” from its debut EP. The band followed this up by releasing Strength in Numb333rs, a powerful and poignant social commentary on January 18th. Lead singer, Jason Aalon Bulter, talks about social change, new music, and the Grammy nomination in our interview together.
The “First Love Tour” wraps in the US in Las Vegas mid- February, then moves on to Mexico, South America, and Australia.
