Its that time of year again! Its time to find out the Best Of The Best, which were chosen by YOU over the last couple of months of 2015.
We began trying to determine the Best of The Best in October 2015, and have run all the way up until now. Over the course of the last two months, we have been absolutely blown away by the interaction. Thanks to the dedication of many different fan bases, we received well over 19,000 official votes! This is the third official Immortal Music Awards, and we're pretty confident in saying that breaks a record for us!
THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT!
And now, because of your support and enthusiasm, we decided to announce the winners a couple of days early. Traditionally, the Awards have been announced on New Years Eve, but due to the excitement and enthusiasm we received after teasing the awards, we decided to share them a bit early. SURPRISE! Happy Holidays, everyone -this includes New Years, even though you will hear from us again before 2015 concludes.
Enough chit-chat, I know you just want to get on with it already. Without further adue, here are the winners for the 2015 Immortal Music Awards. Please note some of these were more questions than categories!
-Who would you like to see release more content in 2016?
Answers included As It Is, Pierce The Veil, A Day To Remember, Yellowcard, and Limp Bizkit.
-Who would you like to see tour more in 2016?
Answers came from all of the world and included As It Is, Saint Asonia, Yellowcard, Papa Roach, and Linkin Park.
-Which album release are you most excited about for 2016?
Killswitch Engage, Pierce The Veil, Adele, and Linkin Park.
-What was your best moment from 2015?
Answers for this varied greatly! A couple of people said meeting All Time Low was their best moment. One was in Cologne, Germany, and the other was in Orlando, Florida. Another said traveling to the UK with some friends was their best. Then others said it was seeing Papa Roach and Seether, cruises with loved ones, getting to see friends after they moved away, and the birth of one's son. Sounds like you guys have had a great year!
