"He's jetlagged, he's dead, he wants to see a real ****ing circle pit!" Watch Bad Omens' Noah Sebastian join Bring Me The Horizon on stage for a ripping Antivist in Cardiff last night

Last night, UK metalcore kings Bring Me The Horizon kicked off the opening date of their UK tour, bringing with them a huge support bill that features US metalcore crew and current Metal Hammer cover stars Bad Omens, nu gen leader Cassyette and British alt rockers Static Dress. The gig was something of a historic one for the headliners, as it marked their first live show since the surprising departure of keyboardist/percussionist Jordan Fish towards the end of last year.

Near the end of Bring Me's 19-song set, Sheffield's finest invited Bad Omens frontman Noah Sebastian - yellow balaclava and all -  on stage for a run through classic Sempiternal banger Antivist. "We've brought this band all the way from America," shouted Bring Me frontman Oli Sykes at one point. "He's jetlagged, he's dead, he wants to see a real fucking circle pit!"

Cardiff, it seems, duly obliged. Watch footage from the killer team-up below. 

Last month, Noah Sebastian made headlines when he deleted all his social media channels. In his cover interview in the current issue of Metal Hammer, the singer shares some insight into his attitude towards being a high-profile star in the metal scene, and the undue attention it brings.

“I was trying to use my socials, and I just had to constantly mute them,” he explains. “I got really tired of seeing my own face, or seeing a stranger’s opinion of me every day. I don’t think that’s healthy. I’ve seen these accounts that collect baby pictures of me they find on a distant relative’s Facebook and make an entire shrine out of them. It’s very one-sided, you know. If there was a female artist that I admired and I had a collection of pictures of her as an underage child, people would probably fucking try to put me in jail. It’d be weird, it’d be extremely inappropriate. It’s really funny how selective people are with their ethics.”
