America’s longest-running touring festival is finally here, which can only mean one thing; summer has arrived. With over 80 bands to choose from the Vans Warped Tour may seem to be a bit overwhelming. This summer, Epitaph Records offers two of the “must see” acts on the tour that are not to be missed; Bring Me The Horizon and letlive.




After a delayed start, Sheffield’s Bring Me The Horizon prove to be well worth the wait with their live show garnering massive crowds. The band was set to start the festival in San Diego, CA but got held in customs leaving the UK, making it just in time for their set in Pomona, CA where they closed the festival that day. The band puts on a high adrenaline live show that pulls some of the biggest crowds seen at Warped Tour. Bring Me The Horizon is out on the Vans Warped Tour in support of their highly acclaimed new album Sempiternal, which immediately hit #2 on the iTunes Rock Chart and reached #11 on the Billboard Top 200, the highest chart position of their career. Bring Me The Horizon’s captivating live performance is a summer must see on the Kia Forte Main Stage. Check out the video for “Shadow Moses” below.


Rising Los Angeles hard rock outfit letlive. is a stand out on the Vans Warped Tour with their intensely chaotic live show. letlive frontman, Jason Butler is captivating; giving everything he’s got and using the stage to its fullest potential. Butler’s unpredictable stage antics are a staple of the band’s live show and something to be seen. The band’s high energy has not gone unnoticed, getting bumped up to the main stage of the second Pomona, CA date on the tour to start Friday off in the right way. Named a must see act by Fuse, Property of Zack and Idobi, letlive is out all summer long on the Monster energy Stage in support of one of the year’s most anticipated albums The Blackest Beautiful, due out on July 9th via Epitaph Records.
