Every Warped Tour band announcement this year has been met with: "Who?" and "When will they announce the good bands?" I was guilty of it as well.

If you like what you hear on the playlist, you can read a little bit more about the bands in the replies and check out another song via YouTube. Check...

Over the weekend at the UK Warped Tour, Watsky stage dove from about 35 feet up off the lighting rig and broke a girl's arm. Photos and video footage can all be found here.
He added: 'I feel f****** terrible. I made a boneheaded decision that got people hurt, and it's extremely lucky it wasn't worse. Putting your own body on the line is one thing, but putting other people in harm's way is inexcusable. I let down my supporters, I let down the Warped Tour and I let down my band and the people who work their asses off behind the scenes to make these shows happen. My #1 priority right now is to somehow make this right for the folks who were hurt.

A video interview with Kevin Lyman can be found over at Billboard. Kevin talks about "how the Warped Tour and some of the bands he's worked with [...] have come full-circle from indie to major and back to indie again. Plus, he spoke about his new microbrew, the importance of monetization and getting "YouTubers" to play Warped."

Escape the Fate have cancelled their upcoming European tour dates, including their appearances on Warped Tour Europe. The band claims that it's due to vocalist Craig Mabbitt's girlfriend expecting to go into labor, but Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman says they're lying.
pulling out of the Europe shows has nothing to do with having a baby, tell the truth it will set U free. Shame on u 4 lying.

Last week, an article on OC Weekly featured a quote from Touche Amore frontman Jeremy Bolm where he said his band would never play the Warped Tour. In the ensuing slew of opinions on the Internet responding to the quote, AltPress editor Scott Heisel commented that if you'd asked Touche Amore three years ago whether they'd open for AFI in 1,500-cap rooms, they probably would have said no. Bolm responded to this with a hell of a statement, a fraction of which is below. The rest is in the replies.
There is a world of difference playing alongside a band like AFI and a band like Atilla. My problem is playing alongside bands EVERY DAY that represent things that make my skin crawl.

Another Warped Tour ... another year of beef between bands. The Amity Affliction frontman, Joel Birch, is caught on video (in the replies) openly berating Memphis May Fire's vocalist Matty Mullins. It appears it may have had something to do with this tweet?
