Foo Fighters, Architects and Enter Shikari lead Kerrang! Awards 2018 nominations

Weekly rock title Kerrang! has unveiled the nominations shortlist for the return of its annual awards ceremony, taking place on Thursday June 21 at Islington Town Hall. Leading this year’s nominations are Foo Fighters, Architects and Enter Shikari, who have garnered three nominations each.

Other nominated acts at the ceremony include Metallica, Iron Maiden, A Perfect Circle, Marilyn Manson, Biffy Clyro, Marmozets, Royal Blood  and many more.

Speaking about the awards’ return, Kerrang! Magazine editor Sam Coare said: “The two categories that recognise emerging artists are packed full of remarkable talent. They reflect a new wave of rock music that is exciting, real and vital. It’s not a ‘scene’ per se, because these acts are all very different from each other and set their own agendas, but they are all a reaction to the disposable nature of mainstream music right now. As Kerrang! enters its 38th year at the heart of the rock scene, the 2018 Awards shortlist is indicative of both rock's illustrious heritage and thrilling future.”

As well as the voted for categories, the awards ceremony will also see Kerrang! bestow a number of merit awards recognising career-long achievements. This will include the latest inductee into the Kerrang! Hall Of Fame (sponsored by Marshall) and the Kerrang! Legend Award.

In March this year, Kerrang! announced plans to expand domestically and in America following investment from its independent owners Wasted Talent Ltd. The weekly rock title, which moved from Bauer Media last year, also unveiled a redesigned magazine, plus a new team structure to work across print and digital.
