Kasabian lead 2014 Q Awards nominations


Kasabian could be set for a busy night on October 22nd when the 2014 Q Awards are handed out after being nominated in four of the main categories.

“It’s been a remarkable and fascinating 12 months for music, and these nominations are a measure of that,” Q’s senior editor Matt Mason has said. “We’ve had the surprise and brilliance of Kate Bush’s return alongside the excitement and invention delivered by all the nominees in the best new act category.”

“From the two-man blast of newcomers Royal Blood to headline performances from Kasabian, Arcade Fire and Arctic Monkeys, there have been constant reminders of rock’n’roll’s enduring power to knock our socks off. All the nominated acts have helped make 2014 a brilliant year.”

Kasabian have been nominated for Best Album and Best Track thanks to ‘48:13‘ and ‘eez-eh‘ respectively, while the Leicester band are also up for Best Live Act and will compete for Best Act In The World Today with Arctic Monkeys, Pharrell Williams, Arcade Fire and Kate Bush.
