Amo just wasn't popular enough, TTS was a step in the right direction imo, Throne and Drown are arguably their two biggest live tracks (especially aimed at the mainstream crowd they've been trying to hit), but there was just nothing on Amo that could replicate it

exactly, if they wanted to maintain their popularity they needed to make another album in the vein of TTS or Sempiternal that the fans wanted, but unfortunately the band wanted to make something the complete opposite of what the fans wanted

amo is a more interesting album than That’s The Spirit.

i think they still can headline Download with a strong undercard like Architects or Bullet For My Valentine but no way they can headline reading anymore

Yep I agree that they’ll headline Download still. I get that their APE gig sold like shit,  but no other potential new DL headliners would have done any better

Download fucked them by not pushing them up to headliner in 2016/17. 

It was either Rammstein or SOAD who fucked them out of a headline slot by throwing down a tour for no reason. :lol:

Interesting does not always correspond to good. Donald Trump is interesting

I do actually quite like both albums tho and thought their APE set was incredible

That’s why I said interesting. They’ve at least tried loads of different things on amo (to varying degrees of success) whereas TTS was very one paced and very smart. It has its moments but overall as a whole album it is quite dull. 

Their APE set was outstanding.

Dull or not, it was their most mainstream effort...it sold them their most tickets and another like would have been their headline show. It was full of more cheesy songs if you like but that's what gets you to headline. You've only got to see Biffy Clyro with Only Revolutions which was nothing compared to their 1st attempts but a great album, and Puzzle to boot. Opposites I admit was the album that got then to headline and it went a bit too far at points that they could have made a great album by combining both cds but still enough decent quality and of the mainstream input to get them there, personally it honk another like Puzzle/Only Revs would have done it. You've got a lot of people who think when this phase came they just became dull but it opened them up to so many new fans and when you do that move that's what you have to do....a lot of people I know wouldn't have touched Biffy before Puzzle, hell they probably didn't know who they were.

See I’m a different one, I was actually attracted to BMTH due to Amo. Obviously knew of them before hand but was never massively interested. I’m not a pop fan or anything either, just enjoyed that album a lot and now am a huge fan of theirs. Was at APE and they were incredible, the production values etc is easily worthy of a headline slot at Reading but would they be a good headline booking to the kind of casual crowd that Reading attracts? Not so sure myself. Not sure they’d shift too much tickets either. I think a sub or co headline position is the best they can hope for now and I do hope they get booked in that slot

If BMTH headline the second biggest festival in the UK, Glasto will be laughing after giving them a relatively early slot on the Other Stage.

 

Not to mention that stage is usually headlined by the sort of bands who'd sub/co-headline R/L.

Would The Chemical Brothers be a good sub/R1 headliner? Incredible live

I think they would be amazing in either slot, but idk if they appeal to that many RnL goers?

Surely they have more crossover than like Disclosure did though? Creamfields and SW4 are the same weekend though and thats the main issue really.

Exactly, I can see them getting away with having them 3rd down that year once but 5th down and not even like headlining the JP for e.g. is telling. Reading would look very silly to give them a headline spot especially as they have had bands in the 1st two lines of the bill who have also been subbing Other at least that are from the rock genre we'll say.

Seen a lot of people predict Two Door to headline outright. I can’t see it myself tbh. Think they’d make a good sub

Maybe they could co headline with someone like courteeners who could headline Leeds and they could headline reading but at the very most I think they will sub as they are not big enough to headline outright.

i love two door but like not a chance, the new album flopped really but they will move to sub I think after community etc. Headline outright is a joke who is even saying that

If they were to coheadline, they need a strong artist to do it with - not a weak one like Courteeners.
