The second annual Alternative Press Music Awards will be happening in Cleveland, OH on July 18, and voting has been under way for quite some time now.
It was just announced today though that The Pale Emperor himself will be awarded with a very special award at the show. This award will be presented by Equal Vision Records / MerchNOW at the award show! This award is the Icon Award, and for obvious reasons really.
Marilyn Manson is a platinum selling artist, who is incredibly unique and intelligent. He also goes way back with Alternative Press themselves, making his first appearance on the front cover of their magazine in 1996. This was the magazine's 93 issue, and he's been featured on the cover three times since then as well.
So, congratulations to Marilyn Manson for this award! Who is going to win other awards is still being determined and you can still vote! Voting is still going on for quite some time now through AP's website, so be sure to get involved!
And remember, the APMA Awards will be on July 18!

The 2016 lineup for the second annual Rock Allegiance Festival has been announced! Compared to last year, and other festivals happening this year, its a little....anticlimatic, if you ask me.
The festival is headlined by Avenged Sevenfold and Alice In Chains and will be happening on September 17 and 18 of this year in Chester, PA.
They will have support from a pretty vast mix of bands, such as Volbeat, Slayer, The Offspring, Breaking Benjamin, Chevelle, The Cult, The Pretty Reckless, Pierce The Veil, Of Mice And Men, Ghost, Killswitch Engage, Anthrax, Chevy Metal, Baroness, Motionless In White, Letlive, Hellyeah, Sevendust, Trivium, Avatar, Sick Puppies, The Amity Affliction, Neck Deep, Skindred, Kyng, Young Guns and more!
Its a bit of a weird lineup....but yet sure to draw the appeal of many.
Tickets go on sale at 12 o'clock NOON local time today on Rock Allegiance's official website.
These are just some of the happenings in the music world. There will always be something that Immortal Music did not cover, but here are just some events.
