Bring Me the Horizon confirm release of new album, announce world tour

Less than 24 hours after unleashing their first new song in over three years, Bring Me the Horizon continue to give fans amazing news. On Wednesday (Aug. 22), the British band confirmed the upcoming release of their much-anticipated sixth studio album. Titled Amo, the new album will see a release date of Jan. 11, 2019 through Columbia Records.

The new album announcement should not come as much of a surprise to anyone who listened to frontman Oli Skyes’ appearance on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show on Tuesday. During the interview, Mac asked the singer if the band had finished or were working on a new record.

“Um…I don’t want to say ’cause…well, I say I don’t want to say, but I don’t care, but yeah, we’re definitely working on stuff. We got something exciting to announce in the next couple of days and, I think I’ve been told, on our website we’ll have some more information.”

Pre-orders for the new record are currently available on the band’s website.

Amo is the follow-up to the group’s 2015 release, That’s the Spirit.

In a letter to fans, Sykes explains the inspiration behind the forthcoming release.

Amo is a love album that explores every aspect if that most powerful emotion. It deals with the good, the bad, and the ugly and as a result, we’ve created an album that’s more experimental, more varied, weird, and wonderful than anything we’ve done before.”

If the new album announcement and the record’s lead single wasn’t enough to satisfy fans, the band also announced plans to embark on a massive tour later this year. Dubbed the “First Love” world tour, the lengthy trek will find the quartet performing at venues all over the world during the months on November, January, February, and April.

The European leg of the tour will begin on Nov. 5 at the Schleyer-Halle in Stuttgart, Germany and conclude with a two-night engagement —Nov. 29 and 30— at the Alexandra Palace in London. After an almost-two-month break, the band will travel across the pond to the United States and Canada for the North American leg of the excursion.

The North American leg of the “First Love” tour will begin on Jan. 23 at the Municipal Auditorium in Nashville and conclude a couple of weeks later on Feb. 19 at the Joint in Las Vegas.

The final leg of the world tour will find the five-piece heading down under to Australia for three stops in mid-April; Brisbane on April 10, Sydney on April 12, and Melbourne on April 13.

Pre-sales for the North American tour dates will go on sale this Thursday, Aug. 23, at 10 a.m. while those planning to attend the European stops will have to wait until next Friday, Aug. 31.
