The time is fast approaching and here at LivingTheVanLife we are getting excited for this year’s Van’s Warped Tour to kick off! For the month of May we will be bringing you five bands a week that we think you should check out during your Warped date! Warped Tour is a great place to check out bands you may not have heard of yet, try out a new genre, and learn about and connect with amazing nonprofits.
A band with a powerful message, War On Women are definitely a band worth checking out this summer! In addition to playing all the dates, the Baltimore punk band will be teaching bystander intervention as well as anti-sexism/racism/ableism/cis-sexism to those who attend at each stop of the tour. For those who would like to donate to help War On Women this summer to provide valuable education to attendees and to create a safer scene for us all, can do so by clicking here.
This next band played Warped Tour last year and we had the pleasure of interviewing them at Tinley Park! Bad Seed Rising is a rock band from Baltimore, Maryland and will be playing Warped June 16 thru July 4. The band is currently out on tour leading up to their Warped dates. You can check out Bad Seed Rising’s latest music video for “Fighting Gravity” below!
Another band on our list is the melodic metalcore band Farewell Winters of California. The band will be playing all the dates this summer as the 2017 BBQ Band. The band has recently been in the studio working on an EP that we cannot wait to hear! Farewell Winters recently released their cover of Capital Cities’ “Safe and Sound” and we cannot wait to catch them playing soon!
Need a little dose of pop-punk, contemporary rock this summer? Then Georgia’s Microwave is the band for you! The band will be heading out this June to play every date of Warped this summer. Those interested in checking out the band beforehand can do so below by watching their music video for “Dull.”
The last band we are featuring this week is the post-hardcore band, Movements. Movements hails from California and will also be playing all the dates of Warped Tour this summer! Below you can find their music video for “Worst Wishes” that they released earlier this year.
