Less Than Jake are playing their 365th day of Warped Tour today in West Palm Beach. That's a lot of sunburns.

Shirts for a Cure were robbed yesterday at Warped Tour.
Yesterday, an unexpected misfortune struck Shirts for a Cure. Our booth on the Warped Tour was robbed of a significant amount of donations we have received throughout our summer fund raising effort. These funds were designated to help with our ongoing financial support of the Community Health Center in Chicago. We do not want to let this organization down so we are reaching out to you, our community of loyal supporters to help us continue to help others. Please help spread the word (repost, retweet, retumble) and donate at: www.syrentha.org/donate Thank you. #fuckcancer

You can read our interview with The Summer Set here. The band is currently on the Warped Tour, and will be writing for a brand new record immediately after the tour is done, shooting for a Spring 2015 release.
Legendary came out in April of 2013, I’d love to have a new record before April of 2015 just to say we got it out in under two years, that’s really my main reasoning. I want to shorten the “two year album cycle” to about a year and a half, I’d love to have it out in February.

You can read our interview with This Wild Life here. The band is currently on the Warped Tour, and will be releasing more video content in the fall, as well as writing new material. The band will also be one of the opening acts on Sleeping With Sirens and Pierce The Veil's winter co-headling tour.
We’re going to do a really large U.S. Tour in the winter that isn’t going to allow us to do any fall touring because of Warped Tour’s radius clause. So we’ll be home and we’ve discussed doing some different things. We’re definitely going to put out more video content in that time, we’ll be writing more because we want to get ahead of the next record – our record’s been out for a month now,...

On this record we don’t focus as much on the sad as much, it’s a very empowering record. We talk about belonging to that group of people that all feel the same way; we all belong to it, and we’re more than welcome to anyone who wants to be part of this world with us

And then there are some bands that have something to say, and I'd say we fall into that category. So I think if someone could catch us playing "Paper Thin", then I'd feel satisfied that they gave us a fair chance.

Read my review and take a look at my photos from the Mansfield, MA stop of the 2014 Vans Warped Tour on July 10th. I caught such acts as Yellowcard, Every Time I Die, Four Year Strong, The Story So Far, K.Flay, Aaron West and the Roaring Twenties and many more.
The Vans Warped Tour celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, and a lot has changed in those two decades. One thing that has been consistent for the last several years is people complaining about the line-up. While it's undeniable that the tour's focus has shifted, the adaptation is an easy one to make. As with past years, the 2014 roster boats plenty of old favorites in addition to today's hot acts and up-and-comers.

Karen Bliss reports on Billboard that a 15 year old girl has gone missing after attending Warped Tour in Toronto.
Batty is described as white, 5'5", 115 lbs., with brown eyes and long, dyed blue hair. She was wearing a black tank top, blue denim cut-off shorts and black Vans sneakers. She has stretchers in her earlobes.

There were multiple bands onstage in and around 8 p.m.: Bayside was on The Journey’s Stage; For Today just wrapped up on Kia Soul stage; Plague Vendor was on the Electric Soul stage; Bad Rabbits had just ended on the Warheads stage; I The Breather just went on the Ernie Ball stage; and One Ok Rock just ended on the Beatport stage; The Color Morale had just ended on the...

You can check out our interview with Michael Barr and Gus Farias of Volumes here. The band is currently on the Vans Warped Tour, playing the Journeys stage. Their upcoming full length record, No Sleep, comes out July 15th.
I think we had a took a different approach, a pop approach to writing this album, working with our producer Brandon Paddock. And I think that was a big step for us, bringing in a producer – at first we didn’t know if it would really work, but in the end it ended up working beautifully

Check out our new interview with Chelsea Grin from the Pomona, CA date of the Warped Tour here. The band's upcoming album Ashes To Ashes is out July 8th, and you can see them on the Monster Energy stage through the end of tour.
The EP was kind of like a start, a lot of experimentation, and the full length was a combination of so many styles of music. We have 15 songs on the album, so we wanted to experiment while at the same time have that crushing Chelsea Grin sound.

Ryan Key of Yellowcard joined to help perform "What I've Done," Jeremy McKinnon of A Day To Remember during "A Place For My Head," Machine Gun Kelly during "Bleed It Out," Michael and Tyler of Issues during "Faint," Mike and Jeremy of The Devil Wears Prada during "Guilty All The Same," David of Breathe Carolina during "New Divide," and Nate of Finch for "One Step Closer."

Multiple reports are coming in from Warped Tour that Mixtapes' frontman Ryan Rockwell said something akin to "fuck tigers jaw. kiss whoever you want" while on stage today. I feel like the response from Tiger's Jaw on Twitter says it best: "disappointing. You had an opportunity to promote respectful behavior towards others and you did the opposite. Bad look."

Whilst reading the comments from many of our lovely AP.net users on a recent article written on Wondering Sound regarding the lack of women on the Warped Tour, I became quite surprised by the reactions that our user base was having. Responses varied from statements suggesting that it's reasonable for Warped Tour to be lacking in women as there aren't many women in the scene all the way to users stating their outright hatred of all things feminist. It was not surprising to see debate about the issue - feminism and women's rights are certainly a particularly divisive topic on the internet at the moment. However, what I found difficult to accept was that folks were more willing to attack...

Megan Seling, writing for Wondering Sound, has put together a really thought provoking piece on Warped Tour's lack of women.
“There’s really not a lack of women,” he [Kevin Lyman] says, interrupting me before I’ve finished asking the first question. “If you’ve got 20 bands that have women in them out of 120 bands, that’s one out of six bands.”

“You think that’s OK?” I ask, surprised that he would be so comfortable with such a one-sided ratio.

“That’s absolutely OK,” he says.

Update: Kevin Lyman has posted a variety of responses on Twitter.
I encourage @mseling to start her own music festival, she has good taste in music and seems to have it figured out.

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.
