Bring Me The Horizon Frontman Reveals Ketamine Addiction

(TeamRock Radio) Bring Me The Horizon frontman Oli Sykes has admitted he spent years as a drug addict before fighting back ahead of sessions for the band's 2013 album Sempiternal.

And he says his bandmates, friends and family wanted to "kill" him before he spent a month in rehab. The experience served as inspiration for BMTH's fourth record, which won them Album of the Year gong at the Alternative Press Music Awards in Cleveland, Ohio on Monday.

Sykes said during his acceptance speech: "I want to say something that I never thought I'd talk about - before we wrote Sempiternal I was a f***ing drug addict.

"I was addicted to a drug called ketamine. I was on it for years and I was f***ed off my head. My band wanted to kill me, my parents wanted to kill me and my brother wanted to kill me. Everyone wanted to f***ing take me to hell - but they didn't. They stood by me. They supported me through all that sh*t and we wrote Sempiternal because of it." more on this story
