Kerrang! Magazine – the UK’s biggest selling music weekly – has today announced that this year’s Relentless Kerrang! Awards will be celebrating its 20th anniversary with a brand new venue and co-host! Renowned East London venue the Troxy will host this year’s Awards on Thursday 13 June, giving the event a classic edge and extra spark for its 20th year!

To celebrate the 20th
anniversary and to help christen the new venue, Kerrang! is thrilled to
announce that pop punk legend and former Blink 182 member
Mark Hoppus will debut his hosting skills at this year’s event. Mark will join Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian
(who has co-hosted for the last five years) to hold court on the night
and to ensure the Awards get off to a debaucherous and legendary
initiation at The Troxy.

“I’m
always excited about hosting the Relentless Kerrang! Awards but this
year I am not only excited but also honoured to be hosting the 20th
anniversary of this prestigious event”
says Scott Ian. “And
by prestigious event I mean an excessive over-the-top over-indulgent
bacchanalian blowout of epic proportions. And I have a new co-host this
year, my pal Mark Hoppus. Let’s party!”

Open voting for the Relentless Kerrang! Awards starts today via www.kerrang.com
and Kerrang! Magazine, giving rock fans the chance to put forward their
suggestions for a number of exciting categories, including a new one
for 2013 –
Best Event.
 Other categories include Best International Newcomer (presented by The
Troxy), Best Single, Best Video, Best Album, Best Live Band (presented
by Relentless), and Best International Band (presented by Impericon).

“It’s been a thrilling year for the music Kerrang! loves,” says Kerrang! Editor James McMahon. “Whether
on a global scale, or at a grass roots level, rock has thrived in the
twelve months that have passed since the last time we all got together
in a room and acted like lawless barbarians. It’s for this reason that
our awards exist. To bestow praise and reward on music which matters,
which so rarely gets acclaim from outside its own scene. I can’t wait to
see who the fans – who are the bedrock of everything good about
everything Kerrang! does – vote to gain immortality this year!”

Relentless
Energy Drink will headline sponsor the event for the 5th year.
 Commenting on the partnership, Sam Grant from Relentless said,
“Relentless
and Kerrang! both stand for great music that matters and we’re looking
forward to rewarding those special creators and performers that embody
it by being part of the greatest night in rock.”

Renowned
as one of the most exciting and rock ’n’ roll events in the UK music
industry calendar, the Relentless Kerrang! Awards always attracts the
biggest and best names in rock & metal and is committed to putting
on an unforgettable evening. Open voting for the awards will close on 3
May.
