Tuesday, December 20, 2011Van Halen win two hennemusic Rock News Awards
Van Halen were double-winners at the hennemusic Rock News Awards.

The California rockers took home top honors as the hennemusic Rock News Artist Of The Year and as the hennemusic Rock News Story Of The Year.

On Tuesday, Van Halen were revealed as the most read-about artist in both hennemusic Rock News Awards categories, which are determined by music fans: numbers are based on the combined total page views of the top 50 hennemusic rock news stories of the past twelve months.

“Rock fans have spoken,” said Bruce Henne. “Based on hennemusic readers, Van Halen was the most-talked about act of 2011. Fans are hungry for news on the most-anticipated rock record in many years.”

Van Halen spent 2011 behind closed doors, working on a new album with original singer David Lee Roth. Fans spent the year wading through rumors about the project, its pending release and eventual tour. The band’s headlining slot at Australia’s Soundwave Revolution festival in September was canceled just six weeks before its start. In November, it was revealed the Van Halen had left their home at Warner Brothers Records to sign with Interscope Records.

Although no details have been announced, official news about the Van Halen album and tour is rumored to be coming in early 2012.

In 2010, Guns N’ Roses were named hennemusic Rock News Artist Of The Year while Jimmy Page picked up hennemusic Rock News Story Of The Year honors.
