M.Shadows on new festival headliners: "Bring Me The Horizon can do it"


Ahead of their incredible headline slot at Download last night, M.Shadows of Avenged Sevenfold revealed who he believes should be joining them atop festival bills.

As one of the few younger bands who have worked their way to headline status in recent years, the A7X frontman is more than equipped to make the call on who should make the next step too. And Shadows recently told NME that he thinks that Bring Me The Horizon deserve a crack at the job.

“I think Bring Me The Horizon can do it,” he says. “I think they’re a band that has a deep connection with the UK audience and I see it. We travel the world and we see how these bands are bigger in some places and smaller in others. I think Bring Me The Horizon does it right in the UK and always play hard to whatever audience is in front of them. They’ve got the songs. Trivium and Bullet For My Valentine also just get higher and higher on the bill at Download.”
