Bring Me the Horizon Defend Opening Stint on Machine Head Tour

British metalcore act Bring Me the Horizon are getting a lot of vitriol from metal fans who don’t think they are heavy enough to be supporting Machine Head’s upcoming U.K. arena tour — and the prospect of playing in front of unwelcoming crowds has not fazed Horizon one bit.

“[Machine Head] asked us because they’re big fans and we said we’d do it. It’s a chance to win over some new fans,” BMTH bassist Matt Kean told “We’re never put off doing stuff by anyone. We enjoy playing when crowds are angry as well.”

Guitarist Lee Malia added: “You’re always going to get someone who hates you. The fact that you can piss someone off by doing pretty much nothing is funny to us. We’ll just go and annoy people.”

Machine Head’s Eighth Plague European Tour with support from Bring Me the Horizon, DevilDriver and Darkest Hour kicks off Nov. 2 on Oslo, Norway, and runs through Dec. 6 in Manchester, U.K.

In the meantime, Bring Me the Horizon recently recorded a live session at London’s Maida Vale Studios for BBC Radio 1. Watch video of the band performing their single ‘Blessed With a Curse’ from the session below:
