'Drown' heroes Bring Me The Horizon have capped off their epic year in a fitting style. After a massive tour and scaling new heights, their latest album That's The Spirit has gone gold.
What a runaway 2015 the Sheffield metal lads have had. They came quite close to blowing Metallica off the stage at Reading + Leeds, before sizing up their odds of headlining in the near future. Free of his demons and drug addiction, Sykes vowed to 'turn grief into gold'. The result was the huge That's The Spirit - gatecrashing the album chart at No.2. They also played an insane show at London's Alexandra Palace.
They said they wanted to become the UK's biggest rock band, and now they're getting ever closer - as That's The Spirit has now sold 100,000 copies in their homeland alone:

Meanwhile, the band have also 'threatened' a wider UK tour next year:
They're always full of surprises. We weren't expecting an epic gig with a full orchestra - but after storming Alexandra Palace last month, Bring Me The Horizon will do just that when they play at London's Royal Albert Hall on 22 April 2016, for the Teenage Cancer Trust.
