It’s a band. Not only Oliver Sykes. Get it people. The other bandmates are individuals, artists who deserve to be appreciated as much as the lead singer. They are all artists who are incredibly good at what they are doing and this, my dearest followers, is my appreciation post to them, because to me, they are as awesome and as great as Oli Sykes and without them this amazing band wouldn’t exist.
So have a warm applause for BRING ME THE HORIZON:
See, this band is why we’re all here, reading this. But how much do you know about all the members?
Let’s start with the guy on the left. Looks familiar?
Matt Kean, Ladies and Gentlemen.
He’s the bassist. Born on the 2nd of June 1986 (29), from Sheffield. In the beginning he was the only Vegan in the band so his nickname was “Vegan”. His girlfriend is called Hanna Tiensuu.
The keyboarder and programmer. He is from Sheffield, born on the 26th of June 1986 (29). Before BMTH he played the keyboard in a band called “Worship”. His wife is called Emma Fish. They married in 2013.
He is the lead guitarist and has been in the band from the start. His birthday is on the 4th of June 1986 (29) and he is also from Sheffield. Without his amazing riffs we wouldn’t know the band as it is today. Oh and also, he has a super beautiful girfriend. Her name is Deni Marie McGonigle.
He’s the drummer, has been the drummer since the band started back in 2004. He started drumming when he was 16, never really got lessons and learned how to play the drums through BMTH. He was born on the 22nd of March 1986 in Sheffield, he’s also 29. His girlfriend is called Chloe Mellors.
Alright. So now that we know all the band members I hope that we do not only listen to Oli’s screams, but also to Mat’s drums, Lee’s guitar riffs, Matt’s bass and Jordan’s new sound he brought into the band. Because what these guys do is art and Oli wouldn’t probably be alive anymore if it wasn’t for his band.
Bring Me The Horizon, everyone:
And now you better all reblog because I put a lot of effort in educating you about this band. So stop swooning about how “hoooot” Oli is and enjoy their goddamn music because that’s what it is all about.
Even if Our Tiny World CH1 might not get submitted to the Tyranobuilder contest you can bet the release day will be in early May. It will be going up on .itchio as a “pay what you want” download. Its incredibly exciting working with a team of artists and composers, and now a beta tester!
Came home to a lovely surprise in the mail!!! @grouchygutterrat and his awesomely cute keyrings. What really made my day was the hand written note. What an incredible artist and an ever more amazing friend.
Please support him on patreon and his shop!!! He is such a great guy!
I just keep thinking about Bowie like
The last thing he ever did was make an album
He knew what was ahead and he chose to push himself until the very end to get it out there, and that’s so fucking brave. He took his pain and made it into art. He pushed himself knowing it was the end in order to give his fans one last album. What an incredible artist and an incredible person. He will be missed.
Wow, I can’t believe I’ve been drawing ponies for more than three years now. Back in the day when I made that sunflower picture, I was so proud, I thought that I was in my artists prime XD
Isn’t it incredible what a couple years does? I know I’ve definitely learned a LOT in that time. This year was rather difficult, as I didn’t have much time to work on art as I would have liked but goodness I can see the improvement now.
I hope everyone had a great holiday, thanks so much for sticking by Adelaide and I. Love you all! :’) <3
Even after Kanye West rushed the stage and Beck was awarded the winner, this is what he had to say: "I thought she was going to win,Come on, she’s Beyoncé! … I was just so excited he [Kanye West] was coming up. He deserves to be on stage as much as anybody. How many great records has he put out in the last five years, right?“
That’s just the kind of guy Beck is. A humble guy who has made a fantastic record called Morning Phase. And just because you’ve never heard it doesn’t mean it isn’t great. Give it a listen with an open mind and an open heart. You just might hear what The Grammy voters heard.
Beck is an incredibly talented musician and artist who only makes the kind of record he wants to make and it is a great step in the right direction that he was recognized for it.
Kanye West doesn’t respect art. He thinks popularity is the same as quality. It isn’t and it shouldn’t be. Ever.
Watching Vincent and The Doctor one of the best episodes of NuWho. It’s so emotional, Van Gogh realizing what an incredible artist he really is, he falling in love with Amy, Amy crying because it didn’t work. It’s just a really emotional, tense, amazing and fun episode. The episode with the most intense endings and intense lines. Richard Curtis couldn’t do any better!!!!
DOCTOR: (…). But I just wondered, between you and me, in 100 words, where do you think Van Gogh rates in the history of art?
BLACK: Well, big question. But, to me, Van Gogh is the finest painter of them all. Certainly, the most popular, great painter of all time, the most beloved. His command of colour, the most magnificent. He transformed the pain of his tormented life into ecstatic beauty. Pain is easy to portray, but to use your passion and pain to portray the ecstasy and joy and magnificence of our world - no-one had ever done it before. Perhaps no-one ever will again. To my mind, that strange, wild man who roamed the fields of Provence was not only the world’s greatest artist, but also one of the greatest men who ever lived.”
DOCTOR: I wouldn’t say that. The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. Hey. The good things don’t always soften the bad things. But, vice versa - the bad things don’t necessarily spoil the good things or make them unimportant. And we definitely added to his pile of good things. And if you look carefully…maybe we did indeed make a couple of little changes. “
“AMY: If we had got married, our kids would have had very, very red hair.
Not today. Please NOT today. These are sick children. CHILDREN. That are sick. This is an amazing event and the focus should remain on what an incredible event this is for them. Be proud you follow young artists who are committed to giving back because not all celebrities do. My heart is literally bursting out of my chest right now with pride. The boys are ALL good people though~ this isn’t a contest. Please~ this fandom fighting over who is a better or more charitable person is breaking my heart. This is NOT the time. Please let this be about those kids. PLEASE.
What can I say… I’m an Incredibly Serious Professional Artist… really channeling my raw emotion here… I locked myself in a studio in the countryside and didn’t sleep for 3 months while creating this masterpiece… art imitates life…
