Bring Me The Horizom Album Remixed & Re-Released as double album plus videos package

Never ones to do as expected, Sheffield metallers BRING ME THE HORIZON have had their critically acclaimed second album SUICIDE SEASON (“Being told to f**k off never sounded so good. KKKK” – Kerrang) completely remixed by the cream of the current music scene.
Highlights include a remix by legendary British producers UTAH SAINTS (whose Something Good single was Radio One’s most played track of 2008), the uber trendy L’AMOUR LA MORGUE, M. SHAWN CRAHAN, TRAVIS McCOY and TOXIC AVENGER, as well as hotly tipped new producers KC BLITZ and ROBOT SONICS.

Like many great ideas, the concept was born from a bit of fun: “It all started because I had a friend who is into producing electro and I asked him if he wanted to remix one of our songs,” says vocalist Oli Sykes “We were stoked on the end result and I thought it would be awesome if we could get every song remixed! We told our label and managers about the idea and they thought it was a good one. From there, we came up with a list of people we would love to remix our songs and started mailing them.”

The result is a true mashup of genres, including DUBSTEP (Sleep With One Eye Open – Tek One), ELECTRO (The Comedown – Robot Sonics, Chelsea Smile – KC Blitz ), BREAKS (The Sadness Will Never End – Skrillex), DRUM AND BASS (It Was Written In Blood – L’Amour La Morgue), HIP HOP (Chelsea Smile – Travis McCoy) and more. “To be honest, there’s not a track on there that really sounds like the original,” Oli continues. “What’s great though is the diversity of each song.” The reissued CD will also contain the original version of the Suicide Season album with exclusive live videos of the band in Siberia.

BRING ME THE HORIZON tour the UK in late October and November 09. See Bring Me The Horizon. on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Videos for full tourdates.

REMIXER BIOGRAPHIES

Track 1. The Comedown - remixed by RobotSonics
ROBOT SONiCS on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Videos

Once upon a time, a small toy robot was found on an antiques stall on a sunny afternoon in Portobello Market, West London. When asked, the stall owner couldn’t recall how it had got there and since it was broken beyond repair, decided to give it away for free. The customer took it home and placed it on his shelf, just above his records, vocoder and studio equipment then thought nothing more of it.

A few weeks later the customer began to hear strange sounds coming from his studio in the dead of night. Thinking it was a thief, he crept slowly into the studio and burst through the door. Nothing had been stolen, however his records were strewn across the floor. Happy that nothing had been taken in the ‘robbery’ the customer packed up his records and put them back on the shelf, next to the odd little robot from Portobello Market. As he closed the door, he could have sworn he heard a little robotic chuckle….

The ‘break-ins’ became a regular occurrence. Each time, rock and electro records would be left on the floor and he could always hear a robotic chuckle as he closed the door. Just when the customer had had enough and was about to call the police thinking he was the victim of some practical joke, he went into his studio and found an unmarked CD-R on the floor. The CD had just one track on it, an electro remix of ‘The Comedown’, by UK metal band ‘Bring me the Horizon;' a band he knew from the covers of magazines such as Kerrang, Rock Sound and Alternative Press. Impressed by the remix, he sent the CD to band’s record label Visible Noise to see what they thought. They loved the track and decided to release it to the general public.

The customer went home, rather pleased with himself at his first official release. As he walked through the door of his studio he could hear electro music coming from his computer, along with the sound of someone frantically typing on the keyboard. A small white figure was silhouetted in the blue light of the screen and the familiar robotic chuckle began again….

A week later, the label received an anonymous babbled letter. The only decipherable part amonst the binary code and profanities was that from now on the remixer should be known as ROBOTSONICS.

Track 2. Chelsea Smile – remixed by KC Blitz
KC Blitz on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Videos

While wrapped in the vortex of keyboards in their North London studio, KC Blitz was formed in 2009 with the manifesto of creating a sound anywhere between Rage Against the Machine and Wham. Call it the new dance music blitzkrieg or perhaps they’re just daft punks...


Despite their secret desire to produce tracks for Britney Spears and George Michael, they retain an affirmed musical philosophy of all bangers and no mash. Turning down Fosters shandys to spend more time with their beloved Teisco 110f synthesizer, these guys have honed their skills into a deadly samurai weapon.

As well as spending time watching 'The World At War' DVD box set, these guys have racked-up a wealth of gig experience under previous guises. They've played such places as Reading festival, V festival and Global Gathering. One of them even won the 2007 1Xtra DJ Competition!


Track 3. It Was Written In Blood – remixed by L'Amour La Morgue
L’AMOUR LA MORGUE on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Videos

L’AMOUR LA MORGUE have done official remixes for WHITE LIES and YOUNG GUNS, as well as mashups of Britney Spears, The Killers, Beyonce and more. Current projects include remixes of Editors, The Sounds, Catherine A.D., Utah Saints, Mystery Jets, TLC and a load of other musical groups with names.


Track 4. Death Breath – remixed by Toxic Avenger
THE TOXIC AVENGER (EP PREVIEW) on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Videos

As the growing independent dance scene keeps churning out all-night-long party DJs, and France continues to expand its domination of global club floors with its own brand of powerhouse electro-dance music, it’s The Toxic Avenger who is quickly establishing himself as the latest Frenchman devastating dance floors worldwide.

Signed to IHEARTCOMIX Records, in 2007, The Toxic Avenger was named by Rolling Stone as “One of the 5 most influential electronic artists of the year” alongside Justice, LCD Soundsystem, Digitalism and Simian Mobile Disco. He has played along with many of the current greats including Black Lips, Yelle, The Teenagers, Vitallic, Erol Alkan, MSTRKRFT, Boys Noize, Kavinsky and Crystal Castles and the infamous Public Enemy.

Though dance-inducing electro remains his signature style, The Toxic Avenger draws from a number of distinct influences not directly related to the dance scene ensuring that his take on what keeps a dance floor heaving is never predictable. Taking cues from intelligent hardcore and punk, all the way to 60’s pop, The Toxic Avenger brings us a unique blend of melodic rage and screaming synths that create sonic epic audiences can lose their minds to.



The Toxic Avenger is currently on tour worldwide, playing in clubs and at festivals from Paris to Melbourne, Sao Paulo to New York. Next Stop…Cape Town, South Africa.
Stay tuned for more thrilling adventures of……The Toxic Avenger.


Track 5.Football Season Is Over - remixed by After the Night
After The Night on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Videos

After The Night is a new artist who doesn't care about creating a signature style. His productions combine electro, breaks, dubstep and D'n'B. He can remix anything from Metal to Hip Hop creating slamming tracks aimed straight at the clubs.

Track 6. Sleep With One Eye Open – remixed by Tek-One
Tek-One on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Videos

Tek-One is a name which, although still in its infancy, has begun to resonant throughout the industry. Consisting of Howard Newman (Production) and Felix Dickinson (Percussion) Tek-One have had consistent support from the larger names in their scene including Mary-Anne Hobbs, Jakes, Joker and N-Type to name but a few. A noteworthy fact about Tek-One is that a large amount of their tracks are made with 'circuit-bent' instruments; children's toys, keyboards and other electronics, rewired to create chance 'aleatoric' samples. Tek-One also perform as a complete live show with full acoustic drums.

Track 7.Diamonds Aren’t Forever – remixed by IHauntWizards
I Haunt Wizards (new blog!) on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Videos

Teenagers with venom in our veins and disco in our brains. IHauntWizards; two guys and a girl, playing disco that doesn't sound quite so. Despite never getting to witness the decade we're strictly influenced by music from the 80's... moonlight, nature, the long-deceased, and late night recording sessions. Our music sounds like a mix of dead synths and flat drum machines. We drink black coffee and attract swedish girls with small waists.

Track 8.The Sadness Will Never End –remixed by Skrillex
SKRILLEX on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Videos

In the world of electronic music -- itself more a platform than traditional "genre" -- there are producers who specialize in electro, house, dubstep, what have you. But SKRILLEX? SKRILLEX does it all.

With a decidedly rock and roll background steeped in the do-it-yourself hardcore punk scene, Sonny Moore -- the former frontman of From First To Last and a well-known, gifted solo artist -- has already rocked a number of impressive remixes, soundscapes and other powerful, nuanced compositions as his SKRILLEX alter-ego.

The double-platinum Twilight theme song by Perry Farrell has received the Skrillex treatment, along with tracks by All-American Rejects, Atreyu, HORSE the band, Bring Me The Horizon, Shark Attack and more.

"'Skrillex' is actually an old AIM screen-name I had which became a nickname," explains Sonny. "The music that I'm doing as Skrillex is totally different than what I'm doing as 'Sonny,' which is more of a band setting. There are some vocals, for example, with Skrillex but I'm using it more as an instrument than singing lyrics."

From the clubs, to the recording studio, from the internet mixing software he downloaded as a teen, no medium is a match for Skrillex's talent, as evidenced by the hard-driving dance music exploding from Skrillex's debut EP.

People who are familiar with SebastiAn, Aphex Twin or Daft Punk will immediately understand what Skrillex is all about. Fans of Sonny's rock work are already flocking to his numerous appearances at LA clubs and parties. "My fans are 'getting' it," points out Sonny, excitedly. "The coolest part about it is that they're creating electronic music now."

Skrillex is difficult to categorize and even harder to ignore. Painting on a limitless canvas with an ever-expanding palette, Skrillex is sure to defy all expectations as the body of work continues to grow by leaps and bounds.

Track 9. No Need For Introductions… - remixed by Benjamin Weinman, Dillinger Escape Plan. BENJAMIN WEINMAN on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Videos

Benjamin Weinman, a New Jersey native, is most known for his role as guitarist founding member, and manager of metal-mathcore band the Dillinger Escape Plan since its inception in 1997. After five studio albums and countless tours around the globe, the band has earned much respect from fans worldwide, with accomplishments such as coverage in mass media from the Rolling Stone to the New York Times, Billboard chart status, and Kerrang Magazine's "Spirit Of Indepence" Award in 2008.

Weinman himself has been lauded for his distinct style and musicianship, including being named by Guitar World Magazine as one of the 50 fastest guitar players of all time and also as one of the Top 25 Cult Guitarists. With an aptitude for business, Weinman has been involved in other industry projects and in 2008 launched Garmutt, his line of rock clothes for dogs.Weinman is currently writing and preparing for the follow up to the 2007 Dillinger Escape Plan release, 'Ire Works.'

Track 10. Suicide Season – remixed by The Secret Handshake
The Secret Handshake on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Videos

Drums that sound straight off Beverly Hills Cop soundtrack? Check. Guitar solo that harkens back to Uncle Jesse from Full House? Check. Tambourines? Check. Fade outs on nearly every song? Check. That nagging feelings that it¹s 1995 and you need to hurry home in time for The Wonder Years? Check.

Dubuc, who started The Secret Handshake in 2004, began writing songs and compiling demos for a new album as soon as he finished One Full Year, eventually ending up with nearly 60 songs to weed through. Once he had selected the 10 strongest tracks, Dubuc sat down in his home studio to record in December of 2008. Instead of enlisting a producer, like on the last record,

Dubuc played, programmed and recorded the entire album himself to ensure that his vision achieved reality. “I wanted to do this record and have it be 100 percent me,” he explains. “I didn’t want anyone else to have input. I wanted to just do it. No one could stop me from doing anything.”

Track 11. Football Season Is Over – remixed by Utah Saints
Utah Saints on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Videos

Buoyed by the news that ‘Something Good ‘O8’ was Radio 1’s most played record of 2008, Utah Saints have recently signed to Ministry Of Sound America, remixed the Twang, Girls Aloud, Deekline, and beyond. They’ve continued a relentless gig schedule that is taking them across the UK and the world, playing alongside Timo Maas, Chase & Status, Groove Armada, Herve, and more, in addition to their regular Sugarbeat nights in Edinburgh, Leeds, London, and Leicester, that feature the likes of Hot Chip, Late Of The Pier, Erol Alkan, and High Contrast.

Having sold over 2 million records to date, recorded with the likes of REM’s Michael Stipe, and performed with U2 and others on mega-stadium tours, Utah Saints remain one of the most trail-blazing outfits within dance music. Following a self-imposed exile, Tim Garbutt and Jez Willis buried the Utah Saints name in the early Noughties (following unreleased albums and contract oblivion), vowing to return under that guise when the time was right. In the meantime they’ve produced and remixed under their Beatvandals moniker, DJed all over the world, and run the highly successful club night, Sugarbeat, in both England and Scotland.

Currently retaking the world by storm, Utah Saints are recording new material for a studio album and finishing work on a new single. One of their recent projects is a remix for The Danger Global Warming Project, an independent worldwide multimedia initiative with a single purpose: to inspire action.
