Last week we brought you ten bands that you may have overlooked on this year's Warped Tour. We focused on some of the more acoustic and mellow bands, but this week I've enlisted the help of fellow staffer Jake Denning to bring you some of the louder, heavier bands on the tour. We have another ten bands that we've added to the now complete 40 track playlist! Check it out in the replies. The 2014 Vans Warped Tour kicks off today in Houston!

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. There were too many bands that I wasn't familiar with, and I didn't like that. I turned to the staff and we came up with 20 bands that you may have overlooked for a special two-part edition of AbsolutePlaylist. Personally, this process has almost doubled my list of bands to see. We're bringing you the first 10 bands today, so give them a shot! We've got both Spotify and Rdio links in the replies. 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.
