Certain bands have such a strong stage presence that it can be intimidating for other artists to take the stage and perform after them. In the past weekend Higher than life festival, Bring me the horizon frontman Oli Sykes told Loudwire nights host Toni Gonzalez, which band he never wants to follow on stage.
Although Bring Me the Horizon put on their own intense live show, Sykes admitted that Fever 333 is a group with an energy he doesn’t think his own band can surpass.
“I mean, we’ve taken them on tour, but every time I see our friends, Feber… They’re just—I think we go pretty hard on stage, but then you see those guys [expletive] and you think, ‘F–k, man, how are we going to top this?’ We can’t,” noted the singer.
“It’s chaos, man. They’re sick though. Love it,” he added.
Elsewhere in the interview, Sykes discussed that BMTH have a studio in their current tour bus, which allows them to continue working on new music while on the road.
“There’s a lot of reasons why it’s good that it’s coming a little slower, but the biggest reason is that it’s going to be a f–king great record, because not one song on that record is going to be enough. It’s all just going to be solid. s–t,” he teased.
Bring Me the Horizons North America tour with Unleashed, grandson and Siiickbrain continues tomorrow night (September 30) in Orlando, Fla. and concludes at the end of October in Las Vegas at When we were young festival.
