Relentless Kerrang! Awards 2015 nominees announced

Royal Blood and Muse amongst this year’s nominees.

Royal Blood

The nominations have been released for the Relentless Kerrang! Awards 2015.

Taking place at London’s iconic Troxy on Thursday 11th June 2015, the awards will be hosted by Andrew W.K. and Skindred’s Benji Webbe. Tickets for the event have been made available to the public for the first time, allowing Kerrang! fans to be part of the awards.

Kerrang! Editor James McMahon says, “I am massively excited about 2015’s iteration of Kerrang!’s yearly celebration of all that’s rocked – mainly because there’s going to be actual zombies there! Not so much The Walking Dead as The Walking Shred, and what other awards ceremony can you say that about? I am currently advising everyone attending to bring a baseball bat, a golf club, or something else to protect their brains from the ghoulish, but that’s enough about Marilyn Manson…

“The thing is, it’s been an absolutely amazing year for rock – the diversity of the nominations, I believe, is testament to that. We’ve got breakthrough bands. We’ve got women in bands where often (embarrassingly) there has been none. We’ve got weirdo, outsider bands. We’ve got stadium-filling bands. It’s proof that rock is still the music of the masses, the passionate and the brave. Rock is still the most exciting thing you can put in your ears. If the zombies haven’t bitten them off, that is…”
