Bring Me The Horizon’s Oli Sykes toppled Coldplay’s dinner table during their performance at the NME Awards Wednesday night.
In an interview with NME following the event, members of BMTH clarified Oli’s motives. “I don't think [Oli] was aiming for Coldplay,” said keyboardist Jordan Fish. “It was just whoever was nearest, it [just] happened to be Coldplay.”
Sykes himself added, ”I had no sound in my ears so I thought 'Well, there might be sound out there.' There weren't sound out there, so when I came back there was a table, which I got on. There wasn't any sound on there, but it was a bit more energetic up there. It was in no way a protest against Coldplay.”
Bring Me The Horizon won NME's Innovation Award at the event. Drummer Matt Nicholls described it as the “best award [they’ve] ever got,” and that he would “shove it up [his] arse.”
