Who are Sheffield band Bring Me The Horizon?

Frontman Oli Sykes and his bandmates originally hail from the Steel City, attending Stocksbridge High School in their youth.

The metal rockband have had numerous sounds and influences over the years, from screamo to more mellow rock in recent years.

Although their first album, Count Your Blessings, was classed as ‘deathcore’, their more recent albums have also featured new genres, including electronica and pop.

Last year, Oli told The Sun that fellow Sheffield band Arctic Monkeys had been a ‘massive inspiration’ for Bring Me The Horizon and that he would love to collaborate with the band at some point.

Both bands are headlining Leeds Festival this year.
