Black Veil Brides and Bring Me the Horizon Lead 2013 Kerrang! Awards Nominees
It could be a big year for Black Veil Brides, Bring Me the Horizon and Pierce the Veil, as U.K. music magazine Kerrang! is setting them all up for award show glory by giving the three bands a pack-leading four nominations each at the 2013 Kerrang! Awards.
When the categories were announced, Bring Me the Horizon received nominations for Best Single ('Shadow Moses'), Best Video, Best Album ('Sempiternal') and Best British Band, making sure they would be in the spotlight for most of the evening. Pierce the Veil, who also earned four nominations, could be the band's biggest competition. They were nominated for Best International Newcomers, Best International Band, Best Single ('King for a Day') and Best Video.
The harder rock side is well represented with Black Veil Brides scoring three nods for their musical ability (Best Album, Best Live Band and Best International Band) and an additional one for Andy Biersack in the Hottest Male category. The only other act to receive four nominations was Fall Out Boy, who have made their triumphant return after a lengthy hiatus. Of Mice & Men also scored a pair of nods for Best International Newcomers and Best Live Band.
A scan through the categories also reveals nominations for Green Day, Asking Alexandria, 30 Seconds to Mars, Heaven's Basement, Cancer Bats, Young Guns + You Me At Six among others. Voting is currently underway at this location.
