The Journeys Alternative Press Music Awards, fueled by Monster Energy Drink, has added even more performers and presenters, in addition to this year's official red carpet hosts and esteemed recipients of the Vanguard and Icon Awards. The APMAs will take place on July 22 at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio.

The APMAs is pleased to present the revered Vanguard Award to hard-rock legend and respected filmmaker Rob Zombie. As a rock icon and filmmaker with a unique vision, Zombie has continuously challenged audiences as he stretches the boundaries of both music and film. He has sold more than 15 million albums worldwide and is the only artist to experience unprecedented success in both music and film as the writer/director of six feature films with a worldwide gross totaling more than $150 million.

This year's Icon Award honorees are none other than American punk-rock mavericks X. X were one of the most influential bands to emerge from the Los Angeles punk scene of the late '70s. The group's first two albums, "Los Angeles" and "Wild Gift", appear on Rolling Stone's Top 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time list. Frontwoman Exene Cervenka shares: "Alternative Press came out of the American heartland as a local fanzine, and grew to be an important source for music lovers everywhere. Thank you for bringing X along with so many other artists into people's lives! We are honored to be recognized and given this award."

The APMAs is very excited to reveal this year's energetic AXS TV Red Carpet hosts: EVERY TIME I DIE's wisecracking frontman Keith Buckley and NEW YEARS DAY's striking frontwoman Ash Costello. The pair will interview many of this year's stars as they make their way down the red carpet and into the main event.

Voting on all awards is open now via, in addition to the Best Music Video award, which can be voted upon exclusively at any Journeys retail location via voter mobile device and store-provided QR codes or via Voting ends on July 6.
