PVRIS have had a phenomenal last 12 months having performed on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' earlier this year and supported Bring Me The Horizon at the Royal Albert Hall for their Teenage Cancer Trust gig and frontwoman Lynn Gunn is keen to work with the band fronted by Oli Sykes.

She told BANG Showbiz: "I feel like it could be a really cool collaboration with Bring Me The Horizon. Jordan Fish at least. He brought a really cool element into that band. He showed us some of his older bands it was really cool."

All Time Low are also up for the Best Track accolade for 'Missing You' and will contest the category with Moose Blood for 'Honey', Against The Current for 'Running With The Wild Things',

Panic! At The Disco for 'Emperor's New Clothes' and Architects for 'A Match Made In Heaven'.

The Kerrang! Awards 2016 will be hosted by Justin Hawkins of The Darkness and Skindred's Benji Webb.

Talking about the nominations, Kerrang! Editor James McMahon said it's going to be a one of the most hotly contended awards shows for a long time.

He said: "It's going to be a bloodbath. Many brilliant bands are going to go home disappointed. I might start drinking now."
