Online heavy music platform, The Pit, is backing the Heavy Music Awards for a second time.

The digital content stream – which boasts more than 230,000 fans on Facebook – hosts a popular news and entertainment service for a passionate community of rock and metal fans, bringing them together them through stories, films, giveaways, great music and humour.

The Pit – which launched in 2017, will, once again, sponsor the “Best Album Artwork” category at the HMAs and the team will take up a position on the red carpet on August 23 at KOKO London.

Andy Pritchard, co-founder of the Heavy Music Awards, said: “We are very pleased to receive the support of The Pit again this year.

“The Pit has become a fantastically popular source for the latest news across heavy music and it’s great to be working with them and helping them generate content across the year.”

Popestar by Ghost won Best Album Artwork at HMA17 following public vote.
