ARTICLE: My Chemical Romance Lead Kerrang! Award Nominations

 My Chemical Romance, 30 Seconds To Mars, Avenged Sevenfold, Bullet For My Valentine and Bring Me The Horizon will go head-to-head at the Kerrang! Awards 2011 Fuelled By Relentless Energy Drink in June.

My Chemical Romance lead the charge with five nominations. The New Jersey rockers are in the running for Best Album for Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys, Best International Band, Best Video presented by Kerrang! TV for Na Na Na, Best Single presented by Kerrang! Radio for Planetary (GO!), and Best Live (presented by Download) at the star-studded ceremony, which is set to take place at a top-secret location in London on Thursday, June 9.

"The UK has always been one of our favourite places to play as band, and we are so grateful for these nominations and the continued support from Kerrang!, the readers and our fans," says My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way. "Thank you for the recognition and we hope to see you this summer."
30 Seconds To Mars are up for four awards: Best International Band and Best Live, and their track Hurricane has been nominated for Best Video and Best Single. In hot pursuit are Avenged Sevenfold, Bullet For My Valentine, and Bring Me The Horizon, who are nominated for three Kerrang! Awards each. All Time Low polled highly too, picking up two nominations for Best Live and Best International Band.

"The competition is really hotting up!" says Kerrang!'s Deputy Editor Daniel J. Lane. "It's been an amazing year for our music and it's really exciting to see such a diverse range of bands in the running for this year's K! Awards. I personally love the fact that our very own homegrown heroes Bullet For My Valentine, Bring Me The Horizon and The Blackout are going head-to-head with big name U.S. heavyweights like My Chemical Romance, 30 Seconds To Mars and Avenged Sevenfold. But, as ever, it's up to the Kerrang! readers to decide who gets to walk away with one of our coveted K! trophies on the night. So get voting!"
Other awards to be presented on the night include The Kerrang! Icon Award and The Kerrang! Inspiration Award presented by HMV.

Last month, we announced that Ozzy Osbourne is to be honoured with The Kerrang! Legend Award at the ceremony. Ozzy will perform an exclusive show at London's Hammersmith Apollo on June 21, as part of Kerrang!'s 30th birthday celebrations. Tickets are on sale now from
