Tonight Kerrang! Awards revealed who the winners in each categories were. The world’s biggest rock stars gathered at London’s Islington Assembly Hall to battle it out for the coveted awards, which are recognised internationally as the benchmark award in the world of rock. Tonight’s winners include Foo Fighters, Biffy Clyro, Tony Iommi, Joe Perry, Enter Shikari and Neck Deep.
Kerrang! Magazine’s Editor Sam Coare commented: “What a rollercoaster from start to finish! The Kerrang! Awards are back with a bang: the only place where the rock world’s biggest stars gather under one roof and celebrate the scene’s many accomplishments. Kerrang!’s longstanding tradition of championing new music is still very much at our core and it’s a privilege to shine a light on breakthrough acts Dream State and Code Orange as well as homegrown heroes like Enter Shikari, Biffy Clyro and Architects. When you have the likes of Joe Perry, Foo Fighters, Corey Taylor and Tony Iommi in tow as ardent supporters, the success of this awesome night only adds credence to Kerrang!’s position as the world’s best rock brand and the awards as the most rock ‘n’ roll night out bar none.”
