I can see most of the users around here absolutely hating this tour. I'm a pretty big fan of CTE and Palisades, though, and I dig a bit of Famous Last Words every now and then. Really hoping this is good exposure for Palisades, they're incredibly underrated.

Heartist are decent, the rest of this line up is awful. The 14 year olds will love it though.

Haha exactly what I thought. Makes me realize that I legitimately mistook one for the other before. I was complaining about CTE the whole time I saw them playing live even though it's CTC that I don't like

5 bands.

3 are already announced for Skate & Surf.

I'd expect Heartist and Make Me Famous to get announced.

Pretty sure all of them are playing. There were no "stars" or anything saying the last two aren't playing.

If you haven't heard of Heartist, you should definitely check them out. They're signed by Roadrunner Records and they're touring with some big names. They're on the Enter Shikari tour right now. A week after that finishes, they're doing Europe with Killswitch. After that, they're on this tour. I expect nothing but big things for this band.

You should see the comments on Heartist's Facebook page regarding this tour. All of their fans are saying how shitty this tour is and Heartist/Palisades should co headline their own tour. Maybe next year but this is a great exposure tour. Both "Crowns" are gaining a lot of steam in the scene right now so I'm expecting Heartist and Palisades to be picking up a few new fans.

Can't wait for a band to use both "crown" and "skyline" in their name.

Capture the Crown is the band that is 100% backtracked and yea they are awful, crown the empire is also pretty bad i've been suspicious they also backtrack and they just pay for everything so they seem big, so ya this tour is pretty bad

Like most of these bands, but not a huge fan of Capture the Crown. I hope Palisades blows up, they are an underrated band on the rise roster
