Revolver Announces Return of Awards Show, the 2016 Epiphone Revolver Music Awards
We're proud to announce the 2016 Epiphone Revolver Music Awards!
A riff-roaring, loud, and unholy metallic takeover of New York City is on the horizon, as Revolver Magazine and Epiphone are pleased to announce the return of their jointly-presented, annual hard rock awards show.
Now known as "The Epiphone Revolver Music Awards," the event is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, December 13 at Webster Hall in New York City. The RMAs will be livestreamed by Twitch.TV and hosted by metal legend and Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine alongside SiriusXM's Jose Mangin.
As the primary print and digital destination for the latest and loudest from established and legendary hard rock and metal acts, as well as the first place fans look to to discover emerging talent, the Revolver name carries incredible weight. Therefore, it made perfect sense for the show to now be rebranded as the "Epiphone Revolver Music Awards."
The show's move to NYC this year is also a logical relocation, since Manhattan is also where the magazine is headquartered. The city was also selected as it is widely regarded as a hard rock mecca, thanks to its contributions to revolutionizing rock music through the years. NYC is home to legendary artists who helped pave the way for aggressive music, such as The Ramones, KISS, New York Dolls, Twisted Sister, White Zombie, and Anthrax, among countless others.
This year's show will feature the same top-tier talent the production has long been known for. The aforementioned Megadeth will serve as the headliners, while additional performers include Zakk Wylde, Lacuna Coil and Stitched Up Heart. A Fallen Heroes All-Star Jam, featuring Ace Frehley, Bumblefoot, Pop Evil, Butcher Babies, and more is also scheduled. More performers will be announced soon.
As is customary, attendees and viewers can expect plenty of surprises, both unplanned and otherwise, to unfold throughout the course of the show.
Tickets can be purchased right NOW here.
The Epiphone Revolver Music Awards isn’t solely about the performances, though. It's here we are (and will be) honored to recognize your favorite artists for their accomplishments that make this music and scene so vital and viable. View the nominees HERE.
