The New Bring Me the Horizon

Bring Me The Horizon have been teasing fans with an umbrella and raindrop logo for the past few months, but no-one knew what it meant! It turns out, they were gearing fans up for their highly anticipated new album, 'That's The Spirit'.

When their first single from the album, 'Drown' was released, people were skeptical about the new sound and the change to a more 'mainstream' indie/pop rock band than their previously more heavy metal stuff. A short while after that, a second and third song was released, 'Happy Song' and 'Throne'. Fans were unhappy about this sudden change and started losing interest.

However, when the album was released a few weeks back, it has gained mass media attention and since then, they have gained more fans worldwide.'That's The Spirit' reached number 2 in the UK charts, number 1 in Australia, number 2 in New Zealand and number 3 in Sweden! So they must've been doing something right hey?!

Do you think they should've stuck with their metal roots or joined other bands in gaining a more mainstream sound and fanbase? What are your thoughts?
