Bring Me the Horizon Coming to Auckland in October

Bring Me the Horizon Coming to Auckland in October

Bring Me The Horizon will play the Powerstation in Auckland on Wednesday 2 October.

Tickets are on sale through Ticketmaster tomorrow, Friday 16 August.

The Sheffield band is described as the ‘new face of British heavy metal’ with platinum selling success and huge tours to back it up.

They return to New Zealand hot on the heels of causing all sorts of mayhem on the main stage of the Warped Tour across the US.

When they were last here in 2009, Bring Me The Horizon were emerging from their metalcore roots.

They recorded their fourth album Sempiternal with super producer Terry Date (Linkin Park, Deftones, Soundgarden).

Released in April this year, the hugely acclaimed Sempiternal sees more electronic influences seamlessly incorporated into their metal anthems.

It was hailed as “one of the most breathtaking and engaging albums of the year” on AbsolutePunk and as “a record that wants the world--that's all of it, not just the bits where longhairs dwell--which is refreshing for a metal record in 2013” by Kerrang.

Even mainstream critics weighed in, with Q magazine saying “They've long threatened to make an album that would propel them to metal's major league. This might be it.” 

The Powerstation is set to rock to a night of epic hard-hitting modern metal.

Howard Davis: Joel Coen's Monochromatic Macbeth

The Bard of Avon may well be smirking up the sleeves of his lace doublet at the irony of Will Smith's Oscar debacle, but now that the initial furore has dissipated, it's worth revisiting the movie for which Denzel Washington was also nominated. More>>

Howard Davis: Kenneth Branagh’s Black & White Belfast

Branagh has assembled a wonderful cast, including Ciarán Hinds, a gently formidable actor who well deserves his Oscar nomination, and Judi Dench, who steals every scene she’s in. More>>


Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>


Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
