Yes the banner title is a reference to a Christmas Story when the Dad gets a stripper leg lamp as a major award. Except the difference is that our good friends in Hemoptysis did actually win a major award. If you recall last month, I put up an article to get people to help the guys win in the two categories they were in. Well unfortunately Asking Alexandria did win for album but Hemoptysis won for best metal/hardcore category for the song ‘M.O.D. so big congratulations are in order there. Drummer Travis Thune had this to say about the win.
Hemoptysis is very proud to announce that we have won a prestigious award from the 11th Annual Independent Music Awards for Best Metal/Hardcore Song for our song “M.O.D.”
This award was given to Hemoptysis by a panel of well-known judges including Keith Richards and Ozzy Osbourne. Details can be found here:
Hemoptysis is still in the running to win awards for a different version of the Independent Music Awards called Vox Pop honors. Independent Music Awards Vox Pop honors musicians based on popular vote. Vote for Hemoptysis through July 20th at this website:
