Live version of “The House Of Wolves” surfaces ahead of DVD release
Before a couple of years ago, we weren’t particularly interested in Yorkshire metalcore outfit Bring Me The Horizon. More appealing to younger crowds, their overtly brash and empassioned style won a lot of fans – but there was something missing for us; some kind of maturity.
2013′s Sempiternal brought them sharply to the fore. That missing element was replete across the entire record, and brought them up to the level of scene contemporaries Architects – and indeed, was better than what the Brighton band had done the year before. What’s more, frontman Oliver Sykes – often maligned – raised his game considerably.
Success rightly followed for this stellar release. To date, the album has sold over 300,000 copies, and the band sold out a stunning Wembley date of their 2014 headline tour. Luckily for those who missed it, the event was filmed (I mean, why wouldn’t you?) – and is due to be released on DVD this summer.
To promote the release, Bring Me The Horizon have premiered the footage for the Sempiternal song “The House Of Wolves“, which you can watch below:
Whilst there’s a bit of twatting around before the song actually gets going, but it looks incredibly satisfying. The crowd’s energy is great – especially their willingness to sing – and it looks like this DVD could be a worthy grab for fans of the band.
Bring Me The Horizon: Live At Wembley Arena will be released on June 22, 2015. If you’ve now got a hankering to see BMTH, you’d best get yourself a ticket to either Reading or Leeds festival, as those are there only currently booked dates.
