The streak is alive.
Gang of Youths has picked up at least one ARIA nomination for the fifth consecutive year. This year’s nomination goes to their MTV Unplugged (Live in Melbourne) album, which is nominated in the Best Original Soundtrack or Musical Theatre Cast Album category.
After its release last October, the album debuted at No. 5 on the ARIA album chart.
Overall, this is GOY’s 17th ARIA nomination. The band picked up four wins in 2017 — all related to Go Farther In Lightness.
Of the past five years of ARIA nominations, this is the first year that the band only received one. For the full list of nominees, including Gang of Youths’ competition, see the ARIA website. The winners will be revealed on November 27 in Sydney and the ceremony will air on Nine Network in Australia.
