Red Hot Chili Peppers will receive the Global Icon Award, which was given to Foo Fighters last year. RHCP have also been nominated in the Best Rock category for their single ‘Black Summer’.
The Global Icon Award is given to “an artist or band whose unparalleled career, continued impact and influence have maintained a unique level of global success in music and beyond, leaving an indelible mark on the music landscape”.
Red Hot Chili Peppers are set to release Return of The Dream Canteen this October. Opening up about the record in a recent statement the band revealed: “We went in search of ourselves as the band that we have somehow always been. Just for the fun of it we jammed and learned some old songs. Before long we started the mysterious process of building new songs. A beautiful bit of chemistry meddling that had befriended us hundreds of times along the way.”
