Bring Me The Horizon have admitted they are "really disappointed" not to be nominated for the Barclaycard Mercury Prize.

The Sheffield metallers had been tipped for a nomination for their third album 'There Is A Hell, Believe Me I've Seen It. There Is A Heaven, Let's Keep It A Secret', but ultimately didn't make the final 12 albums shortlisted for the £20,000 prize.

Speaking to Kerrang!, drummer Matt Nicholls said:

We're really disappointed we haven't been nominated. It's certainly time for a heavy band to be nominated, or to even win this award. Heavy music is slowly creeping into the mainstream. It seems to be more acceptable to like this kind of music. We believe we've made a great album. It's not fair that it's always some indie band that gets nominated or wins it. Where's our recognition?



Bring Me The Horizon are currently preparing for a US tour alongside Parkway Drive and Architects. They return to the UK in late August to play Reading And Leeds Festivals.

The band then tour the UK in December, playing second headline to Machine Head at four UK arenas.
