VON HERTZEN BROTHERS have won the ‘Anthem’ award at the second annual Progressive Music Awards, picking up the trophy for their track, ‘Flowers And Rust’ – the first single from latest album, ‘Nine Lives’, released via Spinefarm Records.
Hosted once again by Newsnight’s Gavin Esler, in the beautiful setting of Kew Gardens, the brothers joined the likes of Marillion, Rick Wakeman, Steve Hackett and Ian Anderson to celebrate the best in progressive music, both classic and upcoming.
Says VHB frontman, Mikko Von Hertzen:-
"We will remember last night for the rest of our lives. We feel deeply honoured to be linked to the lineage of prog in this way. We've been playing for a while, but now it feels like it's finally 'official'. Words cannot describe how grateful we are to all the voters. This is a huge milestone for us, and we won't stop here. The journey continues..."
