Bring Me The Horizon Fights Crowd Again – Guitarist Breaks Hand [VIDEO]
Bring Me the Horizon has made headlines ones again, but this time it looks as if they attacked the crowd instead of the other way around.
It has been a month of bad press for British metalcore band Bring Me the Horizon. It all started a month ago when the Sykes was rushed by a member of the crowd during a Salt Lake City gig — an event which ended with no injuries but inadvertently drew more attention to an attempted murder case in which the perpetrator impersonated the band’s singer.
The band actually does appear to be responsible for the latest bit of printed nastiness, as you will be able to tell from the video below. While it does happen at the very beginning of the video (look to the middle of the video, then up and to the left a bit), you can clearly see Oli Sykes raining blows upon the crowd — which appears to have dove into. He is then joined by guitarist Jona Weinhofen, who you will see coming from the right side of the stage about seven seconds in and returning at around the 30 second mark.
The incident in question took place at BMTH’s opening gig for Machine Head in Helsinki, Finland on November 6th at a venue called The Circus. Weinhofen later tweeted “Broke my hand…bummed! :O @ Circus,” and later responding to fan inquiries saying he got in a fight. He tweeted a pic of his busted hand which you can see at the top of the page on the left.
