Oliver Sykes, popular vocalist of metalcore band, Bring Me The Horizon, has known to be quite vocal about issues in the music community, especially when it concerns upcoming artists that claim to be something they're not. "Yeah I heard about this group" exclaimed a disgruntled Sykes on Fuse TV, "it's just another industry gimmick aimed at the whole scenecore community". Sykes cited his frustration at "the lack of authenticity" at the group's rise to fame with popular album 'Tonight'. Sykes said that more musicians need to "stand up against sellouts in the industry" and that fans too should watch out for bands that are designed "strictly to take your money". Sykes of course isn't the only musician to be frustrated at the group's recent mainstream status, Fellow hardcore vocalist Beau Bokan of Blessthefall expanded on his frustrations with the pop acts rise to fame "this isn't exactly the kinda thing music needs right now". Even David Grohl of The Foo Fighters tweeted his frustration this morning by simply texting "#millionaires, just another punch to the heart of music, fuck you guys". Musicians have always been critical of passing fads and groups that attempt to take away the integrity of the music world, but for this electro pop group of "scene kids" from Huntington, California it's apparent that they're clearly not welcomed by industry peers in the rock and metal communities.
