Maroon 5 will be performing at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards will be held at The Forum in Inglewood, Calif. on Aug. 24 for the first time.
"I like to keep it raw, exciting, get your blood pumping, and then we run out there. I want my MTV," Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine recently commented.
From Maroon 5's album "V," which is coming out in Sept., the first single "Maps" has already hit the airwaves for several weeks while the second single "It Was Always You" is something that is different from the band's pop music background.
Levine explained their divergence from their previous record "Overexposed" in an interview with BBC America.
"On 'Overexposed,' there was a very conscious effort to have as many hits as we possibly could. It was very gluttonous in that way. The band had this new-found success from 'The Voice' and then 'Moves Like Jagger' and we were very excited because we hadn't had hits for a while," Levine said.
"So we were very hit-drunk. On this record, we've balanced those things (by) adding a bit more thought into what would make a great album instead of being just a collection of pop hits," he added.
Maroon 5 was nominated for Best Group Video for "This Love" in 2004 and Best Pop Video for "Payphone" in 2012. In 2004, they also won the Best New Artist award.
For this year, Knowles has also been nominated for eight awards. This includes "Drunk in Love," which is up for Video of the Year.
Other confirmed performers include Usher and 5 Seconds of Summer.
