Biffy Clyro are to receive a Nordoff Robbins Silver Clef award for being the best band in Britain, it has been announced. They take the trophy from Scouting For Girls, who after just twelve months have been deemed to not actually be that good.

Upon hearing the news, the band squealed: “We follow in the footsteps of some great bands who’ve received this award and we couldn’t be happier with this honour. Music has been a massive part of our lives – just like it is for all the people Nordoff Robbins help”.

As previously reported, Annie Lennox will take home the flagship Silver Clef award, which supersedes all the other Silver Clef awards because it’s more silver and clef-y.

The awards will take place on 1 Jul at the Hilton Hotel on Park Lane in London.

Some winners are yet to be announced, but here’s the current list:

Silver Clef Award: Annie Lennox
Lifetime Achievement Award: Status Quo
Best British Band: Biffy Clyro
Best Newcomer Award: Tinie Tempah
Classical Award: Alfie Boe
