The Cribs to receive NME Award

Acclaimed band to pick up TCT Outstanding Contribution to Music accolade.

NME Awards 2013

The Cribs have been named as the recipient of this year’s Teenage Cancer Trust Outstanding Contribution to Music award at the NME Awards 2013.

The band will pick up the prestigious award at the ceremony on Wednesday 27th February which will be held at the Troxy in East London. The Cribs will perform live at the ceremony on the night too.

The Cribs said: “It’s a tremendous honour, and something that you never really dream of when first starting out as three maladjusted weirdos from the middle of nowhere…it’s almost like a purple heart in some ways – recognition for your time in the trenches and varying degrees of suffering…not sure there were too many acts of bravery, but if anything, we hope that people remember the fact that we always tried to negotiate this strange, and oftentimes sleazy industry with an ethic rooted in DIY – trying to forge your own path rather than riding the gravy train…so that makes this all the sweeter. Thanks a lot.”
