Congrats are in order for Linkin Park, double winners in the 4th Annual Loudwire Music Awards. The multiplatinum rock act was voted as 2014's Best Rock Band and Live Act of the Year by Loudwire's Readers.

The honors go somewhat hand-in-hand. It all started with Linkin Park delivering yet another solid album in 'The Hunting Party,' a disc that yielded such radio favorites as 'Guilty All the Same' 'Until It's Gone,' 'Rebellion' and 'Final Masquerade.' Add that in with their impressive live show that played out over the course of the 'Carnivores' tour and you've got the makings of the Rock Band of the Year who also brought the goods in concert and were rewarded by fans there as well.

Linkin Park led the Rock Band of the Year category by a significant portion, beating out Avenged Sevenfold and Five Finger Death Punch for the honors. It was a little tighter in the Live Band of the Year category, where Slipknot's late 2014 onstage arrival had fans rallying to get the masked rockers the honor. Avenged Sevenfold's Mayhem Festival-led live shows also garnered attention, helping the band to third place in the voting.

Congrats to Linkin Park, winners of the 2014 Rock Band of the Year and Live Band of the Year honors in the 4th Annual Loudwire Music Awards. And be sure to catch them on tour at these locations, as well as their headlining spot on the inaugural Loudwire Music Festival in Grand Junction, Colo. June 26-28.
