He said: “I think BRING ME THE HORIZON can do it. I think they’re a band that has a deep connection with the UK audience and I see it. We travel the world and we see how these bands are bigger in some places and smaller in others.
“I think BRING ME THE HORIZON does it right in the UK and always play hard to whatever audience is in front of them. They’ve got the songs. TRIVIUM and BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE also just get higher and higher on the bill at Download.”
Asked how he plan stepping up the game so he can do even better than last time, he responded: “Obviously we have a new-ish record so we have a completely different stage set, and I think we brought it out to the UK before METALLICA did so I have been telling people that it’s going to be that set up.
“You know, you’ve got to make it bigger and better and a longer set list to go out there and put yourself in the fan’s position and say, ‘What would I want to see at the end of a long day to cap off Friday night?’ We’ll bring in all the bells and whistles that for the people that don’t really care about the music and just want to see a show.”
