LONDON, UK, Nov. 13, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Repeating its 2021 run, LAB has secured its place in awards history as the big winner of the Aotearoa Music Awards for the second consecutive year .

Their success story continues, with LAB winning Album of the Year for LAB V, Single of the Year for ‘Mr Reggae’, Top Band and Top Roots Artist.

LAB are now the first band in New Zealand music history to win all four awards in two consecutive years, and are only the second act to win Single of the Year, Album of the Year and the best group two consecutive years.

2022 is proving to be one of LAB’s biggest years to date, having sold out shows across Aotearoa. In March and April, the band finally returned to Australia, giving sold-out concerts to over 30,000 people, as well as big-name performances at the iconic WOMADelaide & Byron Bay Bluesfest.

Along with four other Aotearoa Music Awards, bringing their total wins to 10, the album won Best Record at the Rolling Stone NZ Music Awards, as well as three Waiata Māori Music Awards, including Best Maori Pop Album, The Best Maori Band and Best Song.

The awards come after the release of LAB V, the band’s fifth album in five years. The album reached number one on the Official Albums Chart and is now the band’s fifth Platinum album. LAB has now achieved 14 Platinum singles and 10 Gold singles, with single of the year winner ‘Mr Reggae’ achieving twice Platinum.

December will see LAB release the first single from their sixth studio album LAB VI which is due out in April 2023 and will be supported by Australian and US tours.
