Tour Announcement: Grammy Nominees Bring Me The Horizon Announce Second Base Tour

Second Base Tour:

Oh, BMTH fans! Here comes the rollout of their new spring tour. This go around they will be joined by Scarlxrd (Marius Listhrop) who specializes in a cool blend of trap metal. Further extending the notion that BMTH is evolving. Their new album amo has been met with some mixed emotion from the super fans. It is definitely a solid break away from their staple sounds. With any band, this shakes the tree of listeners but doesn’t always mean in a negative way.  As seen in the music charts :


This is the first show announced since lead vocalist Oli Sykes ruptured his right vocal chord leading the band to have to cancel a small portion to the end of their last run.

The tour kicks off May 5 in Jacksonville, Florida at the Welcome to Rockville festival and concludes two weeks later at Sonic Temple in Columbus, Ohio. See all of the stops and tour info listed in the press release below.

Press Release:


After a week that saw BRING ME THE HORIZON hit No. 1 on both sides of the pond with new album amo (including their first-ever chart-topper in the UK and No. 1 on Billboard’s Hard Music Album Chart), perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and headline The Forum in Los Angeles, the Grammy nominated British rock band has announced their spring Second Base Tour.

The tour, which follows the band’s North American First Love headline run, includes eleven headline shows and multiple festival appearances (see itinerary below). Special guest SCARLXRD will join all dates.

BMTH’s live show features a blistering mix of familiar favorites and new tracks from amo (Columbia), which NPR praised for “going deep into the electronic sphere and crafting some great pop hooks.” NME  described the album as “bold, brilliant and boundary-pushing” and Noisey applauded the group for “being ahead of their time and evolving a genre.” New track “mantra,” which has over 36 million Spotify streams, 16 million YouTube views,  hit Top 5 at Rock Radio and earned the multi-platinum-selling UK act its first-ever Grammy nomination for “Best Rock Song.”


Among amo’s many highlights is the Grimes collaboration “nihilist blues,” which NME hailed as “the album’s centerpiece, a glitching rush of dark 90s Eurodance to soundtrack the blackest of raves. It’s an anthem for millennials who feel like there’s nowhere to go.”

Bring Me The Horizonare one of the most electrifying and successful rock bands to emerge from the UK, selling over 4 million albums globally to date, playing sold-out shows in over 40 countries, including two sold out nights at London’s O2 plus wowing a traditionally non-rock crowd at Glastonbury Festival in 2016.  They just completed a sold-out UK tour in November and you can see them performing “wonderful life” to a packed-house arena crowd.
