Kasabian Wins Best Band At NME Awards

LONDON (CelebrityAccess) — British rock band Kasabian won top honors on Wednesday night, taking home three gongs from the 2015 NME Awards.

Kasabian won the award for best British band and for best album for 2015 for their album "48:13". They also picked up an award for best quote for guitarist Serge Pizzorno views on the band's headlining slot after he said: “Five records, ten years. We’ve earned our shot.”

Other winners on the night included Royal Blood, who picked up awards for best new band and best live band while Singer-songwriter Jamie T won three awards, for best track and best video for his hit "Zombie" and an award for best comeback after a four year hiatus.

Led Zeppelin's guitarist Jimmy Page won the rock n' roll soul award and Glastonbury won the best festival award.

There were some less sought-after awards as well, with politican Nigel Farage, leader of the conservative UK Indepence Party winning villian of the year and 5 Seconds of Summer taking home the gong for worst band.

The awards were held at the Brixton Academy in London.
