The American Dream Tour brought British Deathcore / Metalcore band, Bring Me The Horizon, to a sold out crowd in the first of their two-night stop, at Best Buy Theater in Times Square. BMTH features lead guitarist Lee Malia, vocalist Oliver Sykes, bassist Matt Kean, drummer Matt Nicholls, and keyboardist Jordan Fish.

The crowd, made up of mostly teenage girls, was packed end-to-end. The Scene Girls were crowd surfing and signing along to songs like Shadow Moses and favorite Can You Feel My Heart.  The guys will be performing in Hotlanta on March 6 and Nashville on March 7.

As an added bonus, I was granted access to co-headliners Of Mice & Men, as well. Their energy was exceptional and crowd response was piercing.

All in all, an intense night of Metalcore was had by all and I can’t help but feel fortunate we have new hard core bands like Bring Me the Horizon and Of Mice & Men to lead a brand new generation of Metal fans!
