ImageThe nominees for the first ever Artrocker Awards have been announced, along with a special show at London's XOYO on the 2nd December. A variety of acts across a range of genres have been nominated for the magazine's inaugural bash. Categories on offer include Band Of The Year, Live Band Of The Year and Electro Act Of The Year amongst others.

Amongst the artists nominated for the awards are Bombay Bicycle Club, Battles, British Sea Power and the North East's own The Chapman Family. The band's gave their reaction to being nominated:

"It's an honour to be nominated for the first Artrocker awards.  Just a shame they didn't have a best looking drummer award," Bombay Bicycle Club - Band of the Year / Album of the Year / Single of the Year / Live Band of the Year Nominees

"This is a very exciting time for Battles. We have been working very diligently all year at paying homage to an album that, to say the least, we are all very proud of. To be recognized by Artrocker Magazine in the three categories of International Band of the Year, Album of the Year, and Video of the Year, and to share these nominations with such excellent company is not only an honor but an absolutely humbling experience in the wake of all of our efforts this year. As fans of the magazine, we would like to sincerely thank Artrocker and the Artrocker community for their acknowledgement of Battles in each nomination. We are truly grateful for your consideration," Dave Konopka, Battles - International Band of the Year / Album of the Year / Video of the Year Nominees

"As a band that like to roam the lands of art and rock, it's both natural, and a great honour, to be nominated for Band of the Year at the Artrocker Awards," British Sea Power - Band of the Year Nominees

Image

"We feel honoured and massively appreciative of our nomination for Best Video at the first-ever Artrocker Awards. It means a lot to be shortlisted by such a credible and passionate publication that has been a constant source of support for us and for many of our peers in the UK's underground music scene. Thanks," Kingsley, The Chapman Family - Video of the Year Nominee

Meanwhile, Best Album nominee Gruff Rhys and Best Live Band nominees The Jim Jones Revue will be playing a special gig on the night of the awards, which will also feature DJ sets from Gary Numan, Tim Burgess and Tribes.
