Did you miss the APMAs live from Cleveland? Don't sweat, relive the mayhem right here or on Amazon Music / Twitch.
Each summer, the Alternative Press Music Awards creates a temporary hub for the best in alternative music of all stripes. Tours are re-routed, overnight drives are endured and showers are skipped, all so this community of artists can come together in a fury of celebration. Part summer camp, part reunion, you never know what will happen at the APMAs.
That's where we come in! For the third year running, The Recording Academy will be onsite, behind the scenes and backstage, talking with your favorite artists from the show. This year, we've enlisted Anthony Vincent, the multitalented musician behind Ten Second Songs, to be our man on the ground and provide a candid look at the mayhem in Cleveland.
With performances from Korn, Pierce The Veil, All Time Low, the Pretty Reckless, and more, and the debut of Black Veil Brides' Andy Biersack as host, there's a lot to look forward to at Monday's awards. In anticipation of the festivities, take a look back at some highlights from our coverage of past APMAs.
In 2016 we were in Columbus, Ohio, to catch hometown heroes Beartooth, hear some wild tour stories and even talk with Japanese pop-metal darlings Babymetal, right before their show-stopping performance with Rob Halford.
In 2015 we took an in-depth look at the APMAs with exclusive interviews, rehearsal footage and artist reactions as Alternative Press celebrated its 30th anniversary with a special exhibit at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and a killer show.
Stay tuned for more of our coverage from the APMAs. Plus, watch the APMAs live on July 17 starting at 7 p.m. EST.
