If you like La Dispute and Touché Amoré and like the heaviness that the tech metal scene brings then Silent Planet are an essential band for you to check out. The band are back on Warped Tour again this summer and are excited to be back for the full run this time:
“We saw last year as a test, both for us and the festival, to see how Warped Tour and Silent Planet would mesh. If I’m being honest, we were surprised to see how well this all worked and the values we share with the fest. Being able to do this on a new stage (Monster Mutant Stage) is a neat surprise for us.”
We got the the guys to pick out 5 bands they’re looking forward to seeing on Warped Tour this summer.
I’m looking forward to watching Being as an Ocean every day on Warped Tour, because of the love that Joel has towards their fans and their experimentation on their new material.
I’m looking forward to watching Hundredth every day on Warped Tour, because they are doing something very original, and outside-of- the-box this summer, which I find quite brave. It’ll be fascinating to see how the Monster crowd responds.
I’m looking forward to watching Knocked Loose every day on Warped Tour, because absolute mayhem will ensue and I’m not sure if this festival has seen anything like it in many, many years.
I’m looking forward to watching Beartooth every day on Warped Tour, because they are one of the very best rock bands you could watch live. Genuinely gifted performers.
I’m looking forward to watching Counterparts every day on Warped Tour, because they have always been pushing the envelope in their side of the genre. I think a lot of folks have been excited to see them hop on Warped Tour, so it’s cool to see it finally happening.
Silent Planet are playing the whole Warped Tour this Summer in the US and their latest record ‘Everything Was Sound’ is available on iTunes (here). Make sure you follow the band online via Facebook (here) and Twitter (here).
