The 2013 Vans Warped Tour just added some harder edge to their lineup with the announcement that both Black Veil Brides and Bring Me the Horizon have signed on for this summer's bill. The two bands are definitely among the bigger acts playing the festival, with Black Veil Brides already seeing positive turnout for their 'Wretched and Divine: The Story of the Wild Ones' album and Bring Me the Horizon receiving quite the buzz for their upcoming 'Sempiternal' disc.
Bring Me the Horizon
Bring Me the Horizon have parted ways with guitarist Jona Weinhofen. The guitarist is also a founding member of Australian metalcore band I Killed the Prom Queen, and although the media has just noticed the news, a year-old Tumblr post from Weinhofen points to the possibility that the musician had left Bring Me the Horizon a while ago.
Bring Me the Horizon continue to evolve with each album and the band is ready to kick off 2013 by showing a bit of their musical growth with the new song 'Shadow Moses.' The group debuted the track Friday (Jan. 4) on BBC Radio 1, giving fans their first taste of the forthcoming album, 'Sempiternal.'
British metalcore act Bring Me the Horizon have chosen the title of their upcoming fourth album, which will see an early 2013 release. The follow-up to the band's 2010 album, 'There Is a Hell, Believe Me I've Seen it. There Is a Heaven, Let's Keep It a Secret,' will be titled by the single word 'Sempiternal,' which means everlasting or unchanging.
Strangely enough, Sebastian Bach wasn't the only vocalist to kick someone out of the audience on Sept. 10, 2011. Bring Me the Horizon vocalist Oliver Sykes threw a kid out that same evening. The crowd member threw a water bottle at Sykes, and was promptly thrown out by the singer in the middle of the song 'F---.'
Lamb of God crunched another enemy in last week's Death Match, beating out Swedish extreme black metal force Marduk by a sizable margin. Lamb of God are now halfway to a Hall of Fame run. The American metal band only needs two more wins for 'Desolation' to be declared immortal, but one of metal's most popular acts now stands in front of them.
