Kaaos TV conducted an interview with guitarist Jona Weinhofen of the british metalcore band BRING ME THE HORIZON when the band played in Tampere, Finland on November 5, 2011 as the support act for MACHINE HEAD. You can now watch the chat below.
As previously reported, Jona Weinhofen got into an altercation with a member of the audience during BRING ME THE HORIZON‘s November 6 concert in Helsinki, Finland. According to reports in the Finnish media, someone from the crowd was heckling BRING ME THE HORIZON while the British group was performing at club Circus as the main support act for MACHINE HEAD. At some point, the Australian guitarist lost his temper and jumped into the audience to fight the heckler. Weinhofen was followed by singer Oliver “Oli” Sykes, who reportedly used his microphone as a weapon. Within seconds, the club security was able to calm down the situation and the band continued its performance. However, BRING ME THE HORIZON was forced to end its set prematurely after someone pulled the plug from the stage. Jona then went to see a local doctor at Meilahti hospital and had a cast put on his hand. He later tweeted a photo of his injury with the caption, “Broke my hand…bummed!”
BRING ME THE HORIZON‘s third album, “There Is A Hell, Believe Me I’ve Seen It. There Is A Heaven, Let’s Keep It A Secret”, sold 20,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 17 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD also entered the official chart in the U.K. at position No. 13.
