THE BAND SAY…
"Thank you a thousand times over to everyone who voted for us. We are overwhelmed with the support shown for MANTRA. You never know how it’s going to go when you take another sonic step, but the reaction from fans and newcomers alike reminds you why it’s so important that we do. From opening with the song at Reading & Leeds three days after it premiered and hearing the crowd sing it like it was already a vintage cut, to the GRAMMY nomination, to this, it’s just been a whirlwind, and makes us so excited for you guys to hear amo. And as far as being Band Of The Year, it’s humbling, and we’re going to make sure we live up to that title in 2019. Thank you, readers, and thank you, Kerrang!. It’s great to be back."
