Back in August we shared the great news that Bring Me The Horizon (or “BMTH” for short if you don’t always want to type that up) would be embarking on their “First Love” Tour and if you’d like to check out that news for yourself just click HERE to see it.
The Press Release:
Bring Me The Horizon announced today southern California rock band Thrice will join them as support on all dates of their North American 16-city ‘First Love’ Tour. Produced by Live Nation, the tour will kick off January 23 and will include stops at The Forum in Los Angeles and Hammerstein Ballroom in New York, where a second show was added due to overwhelming demand. See full list of tour dates below. Tickets are on sale now at LiveNation.com.
In 2016 Thrice released To Be Everywhere Is to Be Nowhere (via Vagrant Records). Featuring frontman Dustin Kensrue, guitarist Teppei Teranishi, bassist Eddie Breckenridge, and drummer Riley Breckenridge, the band made their debut with the 2000 album Identity Crisis. With later releases including their 2003 breakout The Artist in the Ambulance and a duo of concept LPs (2007/8’s The Alchemy Index: Fire and Water and Earth and Air), Thrice took a several-year hiatus starting in 2012. Arriving in May 2016, To Be Everywhere Is to Be Nowhere proved to be Thrice’s most politically-minded yet vulnerable work to date. The band’s newest album Palms was released this year on Epitaph Records.
It was also previously announced that Los Angeles trio FEVER 333 will join the tour as support on all dates. Known for their hard-hitting hybrid of hip-hop, punk, and activism, the band recently released a video for the remix of their track “Made An America,” featuring Travis Barker and Vic Mensa.
Multi-platinum selling Bring Me The Horizon will release their highly anticipated album amo on January 25 via Columbia Records. The album is available for pre-order HERE. The band is one of the most exciting and successful rock bands to emerge from the U.K., selling over 2 Million albums globally to date, playing sell 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. Poised now to release their sixth studio album, the band have spent the summer writing and recording in Los Angeles, with Oli Sykes and Jordan Fish handling production. What has transpired is one of their most exhilarating, genre crossing albums to date.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I have to say that I’m really interested in this tour because I’ve only ever seen BMTH once (which was at a small SiriusXM subscriber event) and have never caught Thrice before. Catching each of them in a large-scale, proper concert venue will be awesome. What about you readers? Are you happy about Thrice being included on this tour and the BMTH return to our neck of the woods once more? Chime in down below.
