The Best UK Band Award at the HMAs is to be sponsored by one of Europe’s leading rock clubs, UPRAWR.
Alongside the “infamous” Birmingham nightclub, UPRAWR regularly host parties at leading festivals including Download and Slam Dunk.
They also host after parties, opening parties and VIP events for festivals and brands such as Warped Tour and will run the official after party for the Heavy Music Awards at House of Vans London on August 24.
Total UPRAWR – the parent company founded seven years ago – also runs an internationally renowned publishing company (UPRAWR Publishing) and 5* rehearsal studios at their Birmingham venue.
UPRAWR studios are a reincarnation of the prestigious Madhouse rehearsals and boasts 12 fully equipped studios a fully stocked licensed bar and coffee shop.
Also part of the Total UPRAWR estate is The Asylum, a live music venue which regular hosts bands across the heavy music scene.
Jack Daniel, co-founder of Total UPRAWR, said: “Total UPRAWR is extremely excited to be a part of the first ever HMAs.
“Over the last seven years we’ve championed a long list of British bands through our club nights all over the UK.
“Now having launched UPRAWR Rehearsal Studios and UPRAWR Music Publishing, we’re seeing bands careers develop from their first practice to signing record and publishing deals.
“Sponsoring the ‘Best UK Band Award’ feels like a great way for us to continue backing the fantastic heavy music we’ve seen develop since launching seven years ago.”
Dave Bradley of the Heavy Music Awards said: “We’re so pleased to have UPRAWR involved with the HMAs as sponsor and running the official After Party.
“UPRAWR events are a total experience, not just a another club night, brilliant!”
