Architects Singer Receives Death Threats

Architects frontman Sam Carter has received death threats from irate Bring Me The Horizon fans after uploading a video featuring a staged fight between himself and BMTH vocalist Oli Sykes. The video was filmed at an all-day event in Karlsruhe, Germany and shows Carter "kicking the shit" out of Sykes. The clip - which was uploaded onto YouTube - has been viewed almost 15,000 times.

"We're mates with the guys and were sharing a bus for the whole two week tour!" Carter tells K!. "The fact that people believed it was real is just so ridiculous! We filmed the fight about three times and even added in comedy punch noises and yet kids were still sending us over-the-top hate mail!"

"All-day events can get boring very fast so we conjured up the first idiotic thing we could think of and made it as unbelievable as possible," laughs Sykes. "Sam was getting death threats from kids off MySpace and at the same time getting praised for laying me out! We're sorry if anyone was upset by this although I'm sure most people reading this probably like the thought of me getting a punch in the face!"

The video can be viewed below:
