Bring Me The Horizon frontman Oli Sykes has issued a statement from the band regarding an altercation which occurred at a show with Parkway Drive in Salt Lake City. According to fans, people started throwing bottles at the band when they stopped playing to help an injured audience member.
Sykes responded by throwing water at the troublemakers, who responded by getting on stage and attempting to assault the band. Oli Sykes had the following to say on Tumblr:
"Just to clear any rumours… Nothing happened last night apart from a bunch of soft lads stomped on a lil kids head 5 seconds into our set, so we stopped playing, had a bit of a banter with em telling em to do one, then some fatty gets on stage tries to hit me, in which he completely fails, misses and falls over, and then gets sparked out by someone In our touring party. The “crew” then responded by running around the venue, breaking a very young girls jaw and stamping on her, and injuring a few more of our young fans. Proper hard init.
Not a member in Bmth or any of our touring party got so much as a scratch, oh one did want me to know he fucked my wife though, which hit me hard as you know I’ve been happily married for a long time now 🙂
Fucking mongs eh? What can u do?"
