Following 11 monthly votes over the last 12 months, it’s now time for the big one. The artists that have got in touch and done interviews since November 2022 are in the hat to be band of the year 2023. We have also added in the artists that got involved with the Modern Rock 5 project this year. A big thank you to all this year’s artists for giving their time for the rock show and the listeners.
This poll together with the monthly votes will determine the outcome.
Bands are broadly listed in alphabetical order. For band names beginning with ‘the’ we have removed ‘the’ in the listing – e.g. The Dust Coda can be found under D and The Autumn Killers can be found under A. Please read the list thoroughly before casting your votes. Given the size of the list, you can vote for up to five artists. Do vote for the artists you have enjoyed on the show this year or artists that have really impressed you. Please avoid tribal voting.
On next Monday’s rockshow (Monday 6th from 6pm), the full shortlist will be shared and details on how the process works, which is the same as previous years.
This vote will be live until lunchtime on Wednesday 8 November. 2023 band of the Year will be announced on the rockshow on Monday 20th November. A date for the diary folks!
