Fresh from celebrating its ninth anniversary on April 1, Bring Me The Horizon's breathtaking fourth album Sempiternal has just surpassed one billion streams on Spotify.

Released in 2013, the album – the follow-up to 2010's There Is A Hell Believe Me I've Seen It. There Is A Heaven Let's Keep It A Secret. – saw the Sheffield titans shooting for the stars, bringing in Worship keyboardist Jordan Fish for the first time and adding more electronics to their brand of alternative metal.

It worked wonders, spawning massive singles like Sleepwalking and TikTok hit Can You Feel My Heart?, and landing at Number Three in the UK charts. And now, as pointed out by @bmthstan4lyfe, it's been streamed over a billion times…

In a recent interview with Kerrang!, Oli Sykes referenced Sempiternal – and how fans think they might want another album of similar material, but BMTH would never do it…

“Any Bring Me The Horizon fan knows that they shouldn’t expect the same thing from us twice, but it took a long time of us doing that for people to get used to it,” the frontman said. “People think they want Sempiternal again, but the problem is that it’s an album that can never be repeated, and as an artist you have to do what you want to do in your gut.”

Pick up the new Oli issue of Kerrang! now for more on all things BMTH – from headlining Reading & Leeds this year to what we can expect from their next Post Human release.
