Bring Me The Horizon is a five-piece hardcore/metal core band from Sheffield, England. Despite only forming in March 2004, the band has gathered a surprisingly large fan base both in the UK and the U.S. Much of this success can be attributed to a relentless touring schedule and their popularity on MySpace. Their debut EP, This Is What The Edge Of Your Seat Was Made For, came out in December 2004 and was the first release from the independent label Thirty Days Of Night Records. The band has since embarked on a number of UK tours supporting well-established bands such as Bleeding Through and Aiden, and also signed with Visible Noise Records in the autumn of 2005. The EP was re-released in January 2006 ,via Visible Noise, to a mainly positive critical response. In September 2006 the band won Best British Newcomer at the Kerrang! Magazine Awards. Their debut album, Count Your Blessings, was released on 30th October 2006 amid a large headlining UK tour.
After an incident involving lead singer Oli Sykes and a female fan in April 2007, the band is now banned from playing Rock City in Nottingham, widely regarded as the best venue in BMTH's home land England.
They are still called "Bring Me The Hairspray" despite attempts to shrug it off.
