Battle Royale: Alter Bridge and The Virginmarys Make Runs at No. 1
It doesn’t get much closer than this. Islander‘s ‘Coconut Dracula’ and The Virginmarys‘ Just a Ride’ went back and forth for the Battle Royale Video Countdown top spot, with Islander dropping to second early Friday morning before using a late rally to take the No. 1 spot for the third week in a row. It was a valiant effort by The Virginmarys, who lost the lead in the final hour of voting. Congrats to both acts on the fierce competition.
Meanwhile, Reverend Horton Heat’s ‘Mad Mad Heart’ and Alter Bridge‘s ‘Cry of Achilles’ videos debuted strong on the Battle Royale, claiming the No. 3 and No. 4 spots. And they weren’t the only debuts, as August Burns Red‘s ‘Beauty in Tragedy’ took the No. 6 position and You Me at Six claimed the No. 10 slot with ‘Room to Breathe.’ You can see all of the Battle Royale Top 10 videos below.
With four new clips crashing the Top 10, will this week’s new additions follow suit? Slipknot (‘The Negative One’), Sixx: A.M. (‘Gotta Get It Right’), Protest the Hero (‘Mist’), Royal Bliss (‘Turn Me On’), Triptykon (‘Aurorae’) and Wovenwar (‘All Rise’) enter the voting fray. You can see each of those videos, along with every clip available for voting, by clicking on the title in the Battle Royale poll at the upper right of this post (or at the bottom of the post for those using mobile devices). And remember, you can vote up to once per hour through the Battle Royale deadline of Friday, Aug. 8 at 11AM ET. Vote, vote some more and vote often to make sure your top clip makes the Top 10.
