Having had the privilege of being the Monster Energy Pit Reporter this past summer, there’s one thing I can honestly say about the Vans Warped Tour: it’s not a tour, but rather a music community unlike any other.
Today the Warped community mourns the loss of one of its own— Mitch Lucker, the lead singer for Suicide Silence. Mitch and his band toured with the Vans Warped Tour in 2010 and were part of the No Room For Rockstars documentary.
My thoughts are with his family, bandmates, fans, and of course the Warped community.
Rest easy, Mitch.
You can find a collection of photos of Mitch from Warped ‘10 HERE. Feel free to share your own shots on social media using the hashtag #MitchonWarped
In today’s pit blog we talk to Ryan Key from Yellowcard about the band’s return to Warped and their upcoming album. We also chat with Pierce The Veil for the epic hometown show! We also catch sets from James Morris, Catching Your Clouds, Slatr, and Railroad To Alaska.
In today’s pit blog we catch Stepdad, Four Year Strong, Falling In Reverse, Anti-Flag acoustic, and Dead Sara. We also learn more about Invisible Children, a long-time Warped non-profit affiliate, and chat with Bert McCracken of The Used!
Couldn’t have asked for better weather for Day 5 at the Pomona Fairplex in Pomona, CA. We checked out Skinny Lister, Man Overboard, Yellowcard, Mike Herrera (MxPx), and caught up with The Canvas Foundation, Skate 4 Cancer, and Taking Back Sunday.
Day 4 was awesome out at the Orange County Great Park in Irvine, CA. There was a lot of activity on the air strip with skaters hitting up the skate ramp, Champagne Champagne on the House of Marley Stage, Rome (Sublime With Rome) showcasing some of his solo work in the Acoustic Basement, and much more in today’s pit blog!
In today’s pit blog, we take a look at the man behind the Mayan art, Arturo Vega, catch sets from Anti-Flag, Mod Sun, Chunk! No Captain Chunk! and more! We also sat down with New Found Glory to discuss their favorite Warped memories!
So many things went down in Denver at Sports Authority Field at Mile High! A Kia car wash competition between Four Year Strong and New Found Glory, an epic hometown set from Breathe Carolina, some laughs with actor/director Matthew Lillard, and so much more.
