Hey there my friends, I am here once again to share some music awards winners rundown from the recently held Alternative Press Music Awards. I shared this information last year as longer tenured readers might recall and it doesn’t hurt for more to learn who is getting awards for the work that they do in music. Truth be told this kind of music awards show is more in tune with what we cover here on PiercingMetal than the Grammy Awards are so let’s get down to business. I’ve left the nominees in the list as well so you can see who the winners beat out.
Best Vocalist: Winner: Lynn Gunn (PVRIS)
Ben Barlow (Neck Deep)
Cody Carson (Set It Off)
Derek DiScanio (State Champs)
John O’Callaghan (The Maine)
Keith Buckley (Every Time I Die)
Best Guitarist Presented By PRS: Winner: Jordan Buckley (Every Time I Die)
Ben Weinman (The Dillinger Escape Plan)
Claudio Sanchez (Coheed And Cambria)
Reba Meyers (Code Orange)
Steve Menoian (I Prevail)

Sometimes I sit back and look at my email and question my ability to keep up with all of the touring announcements that come hurtling by my inbox. It’s really staggering to the imagination on just how many bands are hitting the road and how many chances the fans get to enjoy a rousing show. That being said check out this announcement from Pierce The Veil – I’ve embedded the poster, the press copy and dates and will return at the close.
