Ken Mode Nominated For Best "Metal / Hard Music Album Of The Year" Juno Award

Ken Mode has been nominated for a Juno Award in the category of "Metal / Hard Music Album of the Year" by the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences. The band's publicist issued the following press release:

"Ken Mode caused quite a stir in 2011 and the new year has already started with a big bang! Last year, Ken Mode released their finest effort yet, ‘Venerable,’ via a partnership with Profound Lore Records. ‘Venerable’ was heralded as one of the best and most intriguing albums of the year by fans and press outlets alike and Ken Mode’s live attack was labeled as one of the most powerful shows in recent memory by multiple press outlets.

"Now, Ken Mode and ‘Venerable’ are being honored by the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences by being nominated for a Juno Award in the newly created ‘Metal / Hard Music Album of the Year’ category. KEN Mode is extremely honored and humbled to be nominated and will be on-hand at the awards on April 1st at Scotiabank Place in Ottawa, Ontario. Other nominees include ANVIL, CAULDRON, DEVIN TOWNSEND and FUCK THE FACTS. The awards will be hosted by another (honorary) member of the metal community — WILLIAM SHATNER.

"Ken Mode is currently finishing an extensive European tour with KYLESA and CIRCLE TAKES THE SQUARE. Upon returning, the band will begin preparing their trip to Austin for this year’s South by Southwest festivities. Showcases will be announced in the near future, stay tuned for more information."
