Arctic Monkeys Lead Q Awards

Arctic Monkeys lead this year's Q Awards.

The 'Crying Lightning' hitmakers are nominated in four categories at the prestigious music magazine's annual ceremony, including Best Album for 'Humbug' and Best Act In The World Today.

The group, from Sheffield, England, previously won the latter category when nominated in 2007.

In the Best Act In The World Today category the Arctic Monkeys are up against the seemingly defunct Oasis - whose future is uncertain after guitarist Noel Gallagher quit the group in August - Kings Of Leon,

Coldplay and Muse.

Muse are also up for Best Track for their recent single 'Uprising', while Florence and the Machine are up for Breakthrough Artist and Best Video for their single 'Drumming Song'.

Paul Rees, editor-in-chief of Q magazine, said: "The Q Awards prides itself on honouring the best popular music of the year and the 2009 vintage is no exception.

"Once again the nominations prove great music continues to be made across a broad range of styles."

The Q awards will take place in London on October 26.
