Royal Blood

The NME Awards 2015 with Austin, Texas took place last night with Kasabian and Jamie T leading the winners.

Both acts picked up three awards over the course of the evening with Royal Blood hot on their heels picking up two awards. The evening was hosted by Radio 1’s Huw Stephens at London’s prestigious O2 Academy Brixton.

Mike Williams, editor of NME, said: “It’s been an astounding year of comebacks and triumphs for Kasabian and Jamie T and their awards tonight prove it. The fans have spoken and along with newcomers Royal Blood they have been undoubtedly anointed as the biggest acts in the country right now. Most excitingly, none of the trio look set on slowing down any time soon!”
