Los Angeles - Pink Floyd have been nominated for three awards at the 2015 Progressive Music Awards.
The legendary rock band's chart-topping The Endless River LP sees them up for the Grand Design, Best Album and Best Band/Artist of the Year prizes.
Pink Floyd, Dave Gilmour and Nick Mason, are joined on three nominations by King Crimson and Steven Wilson.
Meanwhile, Kate Bush is up for two awards, Best Live Event and Artist of the Year, following her return to the stage in 2014, her first live shows in 35 years.
The 4th Annual Progressive Music Awards was created by Prog Magazine, will take place on 3 September at London's Underglobe under Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and will be hosted by The Wright Stuff presenter Matthew Wright who is a self-confessed Hawkwind obsessive who has toured and performed with the band.
Speaking about his hosting duties, Wright said: "I was made up to be asked ... It was the first time I'd ever met Steve Hillage (at the 2013 awards) - he was one of my heroes from my teenage years."
"I spent a lot of time listening to his Green album and his stuff with Gong but I never thought I'd meet him. I also met Robert John Godfrey, who I'd seen live many times but had never met before. The experience was only marred by the fact I had to get up at 4am the next morning to do my show, so I think I might take the Friday off this time!."
The public can vote for the winners on their website while an additional six awards - Outer Limits, Visionary, Virtuoso, Guiding Light, Lifetime Achievement and Prog God - are selected by editors of the magazine and will be announced at the ceremony.
