The 2017 Loudwire Music Awards ceremony and concert is set for Oct. 24 at The Novo in downtown Los Angeles with a rapidly growing list of live performers set to hit the stage. New York thrash legends Anthrax and rising rock sensation Nothing More will take the stage with additional performances coming from Halestorm, Body Count, Starset, Power Trip as well as Judas Priest's Rob Halford.
"All of us in Anthrax are honored to be included in this year’s Loudwire Music Awards, both as nominees in the Best Live Band category and with a special performance at the show,” says Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante. “The Loudwire Music Awards is a celebration of OUR music and the support that Loudwire has given to all of us in hard rock, metal and thrash is really appreciated. We take pride in our live show as it’s always a chance for us to connect with the audience and we hope to bring the Loudwire Awards to a metalized frenzy with the special live set we’re planning.”
“Loudwire is on the forefront of rock, always sharing news about the best things in our genre,” adds Nothing More frontman Jonny Hawkins, adding, “so we’re honored that they asked us to do this show... Can't wait!
