BRING ME THE HORIZON: 'Pray For Plagues' Video Posted Online

Britain's BRING ME THE HORIZON has posted its first-ever promotional video, for the track "Pray for Plagues", at YouTube. The song comes off the group's debut album, "Count Your Blessings", which is scheduled for release in North America on August 14 via Earache Records.

In the seemingly short span of three years since their formation, BRING ME THE HORIZON has "accomplished more in that time than most bands do in 10," according to a press release. "In 2006, BRING ME THE HORIZON was the recipient of a Kerrang! award for 'Best British Newcomer' and held steady on MySpace's top 100 list of most played bands, currently boasting a playcount of 4.2 million plays. BRING ME THE HORIZON was only one of two U.K. acts to chart in the MySpace top 100 (the other being COLDPLAY). In addition, they've toured with bands such as BLEEDING THROUGH and KILLSWITCH ENGAGE and performed a show-stealing set at the U.K.'s Download Festival."

BRING ME THE HORIZON is being licensed to Earache through the band's U.K. label Visible Noise. Julie Weir, the A&R director of Visible Noise says, "BRING ME THE HORIZON are an extreme and incendiary band, and where better for them to be released in the US than through the home of extreme music!!" Earache Records U.S. label head Al Dawson believes that the band's future now burns even brighter: "We are overjoyed to be given the opportunity to work with BRING ME THE HORIZON — they are one of the most talented extreme bands to come out of England in the last few years."
