Bring Me The Horizon score #1 album with ‘amo’
Bring Me The Horizon have today hit scored a #1 album with amo, beating releases by Rudimental, Queen and The Greatest Showman soundtrack to the top spot.
Oli Sykes said, “thank you to everyone in the UK for getting our new album amo to number one. Thanks for buying it and streaming it and showing us support – it really means a lot to us. Thank you very much, we love you.”
Hailed by Noisey for “being ahead of their time and evolving a genre,” the band have been teasing amo for several weeks, beginning with ‘Mantra’ which has over 28 million Spotify streams, 14 million YouTube views and a Grammy nomination for Best Rock Song.
2019 is proving to be an incredible year for Bring Me The Horizon, following on from an equally as impressive 2018 where they sold over 100,000 tickets for their UK and European tour, landed their first UK TV slot on Sunday Brunch and earned a Grammy nomination.
The band will be curating and headlining a day at All Points East festival on 31st May and have kicked off their extensive US tour.
