Each year, Revolver and Epiphone has thrown the premiere and only U.S. hard-rock and metal awards show, the Revolver Golden Gods since 2009.

After a brief hiatus in 2015, the awards show is coming back stronger than ever with some new improvements. We have rebranded our awards show as to the Revolver Music Awards. Our brand name is important to us and we take huge pride in waving the flag for not only the legends, but also emerging talent within hard rock and heavy metal. We do this by keeping your favorite artists on our front covers, something that isn’t happening enough in other places and of course, a huge extension of how we continue to show our love for the genre is through our awards show, where we get to honor your favorite artists and give you a chance as fans to show your support through voting. Additionally, we give the artists a platform to voice their feelings on their recent accomplishments that we’re recognizing.

This time around, we’ve decided that for the first time ever, it will be held right here in New York City—a market widely regarded for its contributions to revolutionizing rock music. The home of legendary artists who helped pave the way for aggressive music like Ramones, KISS, New York Dolls, Twisted Sister, White Zombie, and Anthrax, just to name a few.

The Epiphone Revolver Music Awards will be held Tuesday, December 13 at Webster Hall. The show will feature co-headliners Megadeth and Anthrax; and additional performers include Zakk Wylde, Lacuna Coil, Stitched Up Heart, AND a Fallen Heroes All-Star Jam which features Ace Frehley, Slipknot, Bumblefoot, Pop Evil, Butcher Babies, and more. And believe us, we have more performers and announcements to be made soon! Check back soon for updates!
