This week the Van’s Warped Tour makes two stops in Southern California. The first being this Friday, August 5 in San Diego and then Sunday, August 7 in Pomona. So many great bands on this years tour that after talking last week with Kevin Lyman here are the MUSE must watch bands at this years Warped Tour.

The Interrupters:

This Los Angeles ska-punk band is on fire right now. Their album “Say It Out Loud” came out on June 24  and has been on fire with songs like, “By My Side.” Their are signs to Hellcat Records Tim Timebombs label from Rancid and their performance is not one to miss.

Teenage Bottlerocket:

Teenage Bottlerocket is back on the tour and have been killing it as always. If you have not seen these guys live before you will be fans from the start and they will never be out of your music rotation.

SUM 41:

Yes, they are back and bringing all the great songs from the early 2000’s. You cannot go wrong with Deryck, Cone and the return of one of the most awesome guitarist Dave “Brownside” Baksh. This band are not strangers to Pomona so we are looking for them to kill it in the San Gabriel Valley.


Yes it is said to say but Yellowcard is calling it a career after Warped Tour and a headlining tour in the fall performing the whole Ocean Avenue album. We will miss them but you better take a moment to see them live before you don’t get a chance again.


What can I say it is New Found Glory! From Drive Thru Records to Hopeless Records this band has been consistent and will never let their fans down from a great time.


We may be a little bias here at MUSE with this band cause they are so cool and our friends but lets put that all aside. If you have not seen them take the time. Fun from start to finish what can you say about this band.


They never let you down when you see this awesome band. Let the music talk for itself.


We have seen these guys so many times and every time our appreciation for their music grows. Great band!! Also watch out for Officer Bradford you never know what he will do, give you a tickets, flip you off or start an awesome circle pit.


Fun hooks and great lyrics that really make them a must see at Warped.
