Elsewhere, twenty one pilots nabbed Best Live Act presented by Music Venue Trust and Poppy was crowned Best International Act.

The Grassroots prize was awarded to activist Janey Starling, the co-director of feminist campaign group Level-Up.

Kerrang! Editor Luke Morton said: “The alternative music scene is more exciting than ever in 2022, and this year’s Kerrang! Awards underlines our commitment to supporting new music and championing the underdogs. I’m so proud to introduce three new categories that strike at the heart of the underground and the alternative community, while also recognising the stadium-conquering legends who have paved the way and make the alt. scene the most inspiring place to be right now. Our world is alive with positive change – get on board.”
