Last month, BRING ME THE HORIZON canceled the last two shows of its U.S. tour due to singer Oli Sykes's "ruptured right vocal cord."

BRING ME THE HORIZON scored its first No. 1 album in the U.K. with "Amo". The disc had combined first-week units of 27,000, with 61% of its sales on CD or vinyl.

The band's previous best album chart showing was No. 2 with 2015's "That's The Spirit".

The record failed to crack the Billboard 200 album chart's Top 10 however, settling for a No. 14 debut with sales in North America of just over 26,000 units — close to the U.K. tally. Around 16,000 of those were physical copies.

"Amo" was released on January 25 via Columbia Records. The band spent last summer writing and recording in Los Angeles, with Sykes and keyboardist Jordan Fish handling production.
