Fresh from playing the Vans Warped Tour in the United States, the horror-punk six-piece – who’s debut album ‘Eternity, In Your Arms‘ hit the UK’s top 20 earlier this year – will lead the line-up onAugust 24 at the inaugural HMAs.

In addition, fast-rising Scottish four-piece Vukovi will open the main stage, while Best Breakthrough Band nominees Dead! will get the HMAs kicked off in style with a performance on the venue’s second stage.


Opening the main stage will be fast-rising Scottish rockers Vukovi, who head to Reading and Leeds Festival the following day.

Vocalist Janine Shilstone told the HMAs, “[It’s the] first ever awards show the band have been invited to – and to top to it off the HMA gods wants us to perform. Double whammy.


Special guests Dead! – nominees in the Best Breakthrough Band category, presented by House of Vans London – will get the HMAs warmed up with a performance on the venue’s second stage.

Support for the main stage comes from the mighty Venom Prison who have just been confirmed as part of Decapitated’s European/UK tour in October.
