Bring Me The Horizon hit London's House Of Vans this weekend, and our man Gav Lloyd was there to see it all go down.
"Anyone who saw Bring Me The Horizon's triumphant sets at Wembley Arena or Reading & Leeds will know that the days of this band playing tiny venues like House Of Vans are long gone and it's very unlikely that anyone will be watching them in a room of this size again any time soon."
"With a set that proves just how many huge songs they now have in their arsenal, it's the songs off 'That's The Spirit' that really captivate tonight. There's a colossal airing of 'True Friends', and 'Happy Song' has quickly become the perfect way to kick off proceedings. The goosebump-inducing moments provoked by larger-than-life songs like 'Drown' are even more electrifying when you can hear everyone in the room belting it out at the top of their lungs, too."
"The sentiment behind 'That's The Spirit' is clearly very real. The band beam onstage, and even though tiny venues are easy for them these days, this still feels like a truly special night."
