Volbeat Win Album + Artist of the Year in First Annual Creepies Awards
It was a big year for Volbeat and that could definitely be felt in the voting for Noisecreep’s first annual Creepies Awards. The rockers were the only act to take home two trophies, winning Album of the Year for their ‘Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies’ disc, and also taking home the Artist of the Year award.
The ‘Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies’ disc earned 29.54 percent of the final vote from Noisecreep’s readers, besting Korn’s ‘The Paradigm Shift,’ Five Finger Death Punch’s ‘The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell’ and Avenged Sevenfold’s ‘Hail to the King.’ All three of the runners up received significant vote tallies, but fell short of Volbeat’s total.
It was also Korn, Five Finger Death Punch and Avenged Sevenfold who put up the biggest fights against Volbeat for Artist of the Year, but the band took just shy of 30 percent of the final vote to earn the honor.
Our congrats to Volbeat, winners of Noisecreep’s Album and Artist of the Year in the first annual Creepies Awards. Look for Volbeat on tour supporting ‘Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies’ this summer in Europe, then joining Five Finger Death Punch for dates this fall. Check out their tour schedule here.
