** Invite anyone who would be interested!**
Pure Rawk Awards 2011 is this years event dedicated to honouring unsigned, underground and independent artists. The bill features a host of guest presenters as well as:
ARTHEMIS (ITALY) **ONE OFF UK SHOW** A lot of bands would chew their drumming or strumming arm off to grab the first few gigs this Italian power-four have had in the UK – Hellfire Fest, Bloodstock and Hard Rock Hell (they... were back again for it this year too). On their 6th album (Heroes), they’re finally starting to break ground in the UK. Arthemis are coming to us all the way from Italy to perform their hard and heavy metal.
STEREO JUGGERNAUT (UK) Stereo Juggernaut are someway between a hyped up Smashing Pumpkins and a Ministry of Sound club mixtape. There’s a whole lot going on there. ‘A pure wall of sound’. Ignore the Juggernaut at your peril or it might just drive through your head when you least expect it.
ILLUMINATUS(UK) Nottingham's political metal dealers. No nonsense, powerful aggressiveness finely tuned to dynamic soundscapes. True facts.
KIRIA (UK) Not only a stunning female vocal artiste but also a revolution. Taking ‘pop punk’ by the short and curlies, Kiria has her scissors primed to cut that cheeky adolescent fringe, pull up their trousers and inject some much needed magnetism into a tired genre. Her unpredictable but fun live shows are her trademark. We're champing at the bit to see what she pulls out at the Awards.
SWORN TO OATH (UK) *special acoustic show* The New Breed Award and Axe Hero winners proved us right, they turned many heads in 2010. They return to the Award stages to strip it down and go all acoustic on us. ‘Don’t Fuck About’; does exactly what it says on the tin.
