The Journeys Alternative Press Music Awards, Fueled by Monster Energy, are coming to Rock n' Roll City on July 17 and the nominations are in! This year brings two new categories-Best New Artist Video and Best Hard Rock Artist-and features a multitude of rock stars and fan favorites, as well as plenty of buzzing newcomers. It's now up to you - the fans - to decide which artists will win a Skully! Voting is open now through June 30 at www.altpress.com/vote.

"This year's nominations are from a very diverse pool of artists, probably the most diverse we've ever had," says Alternative Press Founder and CEO Mike Shea. "We are representing genres from alternative to indie pop to hard rock to metal-all of whose nominations showcase the best in their fields as chosen by a pool of input from fans, music industry VIPs and the staff at Alternative Press. Now it'll be up to music fans worldwide to decide who takes home this year's Skullys!"

Alternative music heavyweights A Day To Remember, Blink-182, Fall Out Boy, Good Charlotte, Green Day, Machine Gun Kelly, Panic! At The Disco, Pierce The Veil, Sum 41 and The Pretty Reckless will battle it out for title of Artist Of The Year, which Twenty One Pilots claimed in 2016.

The fourth annual APMAs will broadcast live on July 17, 2017 from the Quicken Loans Arena in AP's hometown of Cleveland, Ohio, hosted by BLACK VEIL BRIDES frontman, Andy Black, mastermind and star of the upcoming film American Satan, Andy Biersack (who is also nominated for Album Of The Year and Song Of The Year). Before the big event, fans can watch as their favorite bands and artists walk the red carpet in their best APMAs attire.

Performances by All Time Low, Against Me!, Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness, Bone Thugs, Korn, Machine Gun Kelly, New Years Day, ONE OK ROCK, Pierce The Veil, The Pretty Reckless and Sleeping With Sirens have already been announced, with even more amazing performers to come! As fans have come to expect, rock's biggest night will be filled with special once-in-a-lifetime collaborations from their favorite musicians.
