Riff Police! Pull Over! #134: Bring Me The Horizon Vs Deftones!

Having already done the rounds at this point, we just feel like we had to have another poke at the hornets nest that has surrounded Bring Me The Horizon since 2015’s “That’s The Spirit“. Why?

Our favourite soap opera is back like a needy ex-Girlfriend that you just can’t say no to for another lethal dose of all things Weaponry.
