Bring Me The Horizon’s ‘Sempiternal’ hits 1 Billion Streams

The groundbreaking 2013 album ‘Sempiternal’ by Bring Me The Horizon has reached one billion Spotify streams.

It’s the fourth album from the Sheffield band, after 2010’s ‘There Is a Hell Believe Me I’ve Seen It.’ For the first time on ‘There Is A Heaven Let’s Keep It A Secret,’ BMTH recruited Worship keyboardist Jordan Fish and included more electronics to their alternative metal sound.

Celebrating the milestone, BMTH took to Twitter to share a video of clips from the album.

Reviewing the record in 2013, it was described as “one of the year’s most accomplished metal albums.”

The award comes after BMTH recently received the BandLab NME Awards 2022’s Best Band In The UK Supported By Pizza Express award.

During their final set at the ceremony last month, the band also paid respect to Ukraine.

“I guess it’s better being here in a room full of influential people: they need to use their voice every single day until this crisis is over,” frontman Oli Sykes told the audience before the band’s final song ‘Throne’. “If Kyiv does not survive, international peace will not survive.”

Since then, the band has released ‘Fallout,’ a collaboration with Masked Wolf, an Australian rapper.

They’ve also recently joined the battle to save The Leadmill in Sheffield, which was threatened with eviction by its current operators.

“At least 46 times,” Sykes told his Instagram followers, he saw cult British rockers Hundred Reasons at the venue, before adding, “Don’t let it shut down!”
