Blur nominated for 2013 NME Award - Vote Now!

Head's up - Blur has made a re-appearance in the NME Awards of 2013 by being nominated for two awards.

Yes, that's right - Blur have been nominated for the "Best Re-Issue Award" and the "Best Live Band" of 2013 Award in the prestigious music ceremony, to be held in East London on the 27th February. Other contestants for various awards include MIA, Noel Gallagher, David Cameron, One Direction and The Rolling Stones, amongst other high profile stars.

Blur are up against the following artists for their two awards:

Best Re-Issue

  1. Manic Street Preachers, 'Generation Terrorists'
  2. Blur, '21'
  3. Prodigy, 'The Fat Of The Land'
  4. Interpol, 'Turn On The Bright Lights' 
  5. Smashing Pumpkins, 'Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness'
  6. Ian Brown, 'Collected' 

Best Live Band

  1. The Maccabees
  2. The Cribs
  3. Blur
  4. Biffy Clyro
  5. Foals
  6. The Rolling Stones
The band is no new-comer to the NME Awards; Blur first performed on stage at this very show in 2009 (a rusty, raw and slightly emotional version of 'This is a Low') for their comeback announcement during their reform, and have been nominated for awards nearly every year where they released new material.

Cast your votes for Blur by heading over to NME's voting page HERE (Ends on February 20th). And let us know what you think by voting in our poll below. Winners will be announced the week after at the East London venue in Troxy.

Will Blur take away an award this year ?
