According to the Official Charts Company, Bring Me The Horizon’s amo is “charging” towards Number One.

The band are joined in the Top 40 by Rival Sons (with Feral Roots sitting at the Number 10 spot), Blood Red Shoes at 31, and Skunk Anansie’s 25LIVE@25 at 32.

Following amo’s release, frontman Oli Sykes revealed how much he’s been enjoying Horizon’s fans’ love-or-hate response to the album.
“I love how much this record is polarising peeps,” he posted on Instagram. “Hasn’t been like this since we released Suicide Season.
“A lot of kids were quick to shit all over it.. because it was something very different from the scene we was in.. I 100% support and encourage people’s true opinions and if you are someone who’s only a fan of metal & hardcore with no exceptions, you are well within your right to hate this :) but if you are open to more.. all I’m saying is if you judged this record after 1 listen, maybe go give it another 2. I’m pretty confident you’ll surprise yourself…
“But it’s so exciting to of made a record that makes people feel so much.. it feels so Bring Me The Horizon again. Thank you for that.”
Bring Me The Horizon are headlining All Points East festival in London on May 31.
