Heavy Group have announced that the fifth annual Heavy Music Awards will take place as a full, in-person event at the 2,300 capacity O2 Forum Kentish Town on Thursday 02 September 2021.
In addition, following the staggering success of HMA20’s live streamed online award show (due to Covid-19) – which saw 177,000 live viewers tuned in – the event will also be streamed worldwide on Twitch.
Armed with a blistering, aggressive new single, “Nowhere Generation,” the multi-Platinum, politically imbued punk rockers RISE AGAINST celebrate the track’s catapulting into the Top 25 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock chart and Top 30 on Billboard’s Alternative charts in only its third week of release. The song is a David-and-Goliath call-to-arms directed primarily at Millennials, Gen Ys, and Gen Zs to preserve and defend the fact that people, not politicians, hold the real power and that our younger generations need to reclaim that power to ensure the future of democracy. In its debut week, “Nowhere Generation” was the #1 Most Added track at both Rock and Alternative radio, an accomplishment that only Foo Fighters’ #1 smash “Shame, Shame” also achieved in the past year. Additionally, in the short time since its debut, “Nowhere Generation” has contributed 2.3-million streams to the band’s global total of nearly 4 billion. Check out the band’s new performance music video of “Nowhere Generation” HERE.
Following on from the release of their new album ‘Obsidian’ in May, British gothic metal legends PARADISE LOST have announced a special live streaming performance and alternative to bonfire night for the 5th November.
