Kerrang! Awards nominees revealed

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Kerrang! Awards, and the nominees for 2013 have been revealed. Enter Shikari were the primary winners of last years ceremony, going away with 2 awards, and this year I predict Sheffield band Bring Me The Horizon to walk away with the most gongs.

This year the event is hosted by Blink 182 legend Mark Hoppus, alongside Scott Ian from Anthrax, at Troxy in London on June 13th.
