Bring Me The Horizon is the NXT: LOUD band for TakeOver: Respect
As NXT TakeOver: Respect rapidly approaches, you can get in the mood for the blockbuster event by listening to the show’s official theme songs, “Throne” and “Happy Song” by Bring Me The Horizon, the latest artists to be featured in NXT: LOUD. Triple H confirmed the news on Twitter.
NXT: LOUD is a program that brings together the future of music and The Superstars of Tomorrow. Both of TakerOver: Respect’s themes are featured on their latest album, “That’s The Spirit,” which is available now and is currently No. 2 on the Billboard charts.
“BMTH is beyond stoked to be a part of NXT: LOUD,” said Matt Nicholls, the band’s drummer. “We believe our music fits the intense, raw & energetic attitude of NXT perfectly, and as fans of wrestling, this is something we are more than proud to be a part of.”
“They’re a musical version of everything NXT is trying to be in the sports-entertainment world,”Corey Graves said. “Plus, the chorus of ‘Throne’ says, ‘Every scar will build my throne.’ That’s representative of our business. We take our lumps just trying to build something. It’s not going to be easy, but eventually, it will pay off.”
Bring Me The Horizon can count Graves and several other Superstars among their massive fanbase, including WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins.
“They’re an incredible awesome band that makes real awesome music. I’m stoked that they’re a part of the WWE family and NXT: LOUD. They really embody the whole “future is now” spirit that NXT runs with. It’s a perfect partnership.”
“Throne” and “Happy Song” will be heard on NXT programming over the next several weeks, leading up to TakeOver: Respect – live and only on WWE Network, Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 8/7 C. Click here to get “That’s The Spirit” on iTunes now!
