Dashboard Confessional and the All-American Rejects to embark on summer tour

After a week of posting cryptic messages on social media, the All-American Rejects have finally unveiled what all the teasing was for. On Monday (May 8), the Oklahoma-founded band announced plans to hit the road during the summertime. Heading out with the four-piece during the months of July and August will be Dashboard Confessional. Similar to the All-American Rejects photographic teases, the Chris Carrabba-led group posted an image with Carrabba and ARR frontman Tyson Ritter. Accompanying the photo was the caption “I think we’re on to something…tune in tomorrow” as well as AAR’s Twitter handle.

The joint summer excursion will kick off on July 13 at the Pacific Amphiheatre in Costa Mesa, California and conclude a month later on Aug. 15 at the Ravinia Festival in Highland Park, Illinois. The Social Animals will open for the two groups from July 14 to July 23 while the Maine will take over from July 25 to Aug. 13.

Pre-sales for both general admission tickets and VIP tickets will begin on Wednesday, May 10, at 10 a.m. local time. Once pre-sales end, public tickets sales will begin on Friday, May 12, also at 10 a.m. local time. Dashboard Confessional is currently offering two different VIP packages named after two of their biggest hits. The first is called the “Hands Down” the Ultimate Dashboard Confessional Experience and the other is named the “Don’t Wait” Backstage Meet & Greet Experience. For more information about the packages, head on over the Dashboard’s website here.

The tour announcement comes a year after Carrabba premiered a brand new song titled “May”; this first new tune in seven years. Around the time the song was unveiled, the singer had also alluded that he was working on new music, but had no release date in mind. “I don’t have any idea of a release date or a worry about one for that matter,” Carrabba told Entertainment Weekly in 2016.

As for the All-American Rejects, last summer they hit the road alongside Blink-182 for their California summer tour (read out review here). During the tour, they performed a new song titled “DGAF” and have been teasing that there will be new music soon. When that new music will make an appearance, only the band knows.

Vans Warped Tour reveals 2017 lineup

After months of waiting, the lineup for the 2017 incarnation of the Vans Warped Tour has been announced. On Wednesday (March 22), the annual summertime traveling music festival unleashed its lineup which, as always, was met with a lot of mixed reactions. Some potential attendees have labeled it the “best lineup ever” (excuse us, have you see the lineup from 2004 or 2005 ?) while others have said that it might be the worst lineup ever. No matter what your outlook on the lineup is, we can all agree that there is a little for everyone who may attend.

This year’s lineup will include a combination of older/Warped veteran bands as well as some up-and-coming artists. Goldfinger, Anti-Flag, Hawthorne Heights, Save Ferris, Silverstein, American Authors, Bowling for Soup, Streetlight Manifesto, I Prevail, Dance Gavin Dance, GWAR, Blessthefall, Too Close to Touch, Nevershoutnever, New Year’s Day, Neck Deep, and many, many more are set to hit the road this summer. Tickets for all the show are currently available on the Warped Tour’s website here. The complete lineup for Warped Tour 2017 can be seen below while the complete itinerary for the summer punk-rock summer camp can be seen here.

Sadly, it appears as if there will be one massive change to this year’s tour; free parental tickets will no longer be offered. For the past 21 years, the music festival has provided free tickets for parents who do not trust their kids to go to the show alone, so long as the kid has a purchased ticket. In a press statement, festival organizers revealed that in hopes of going back to their “counter-culture roots” and booking a more “balanced lineup including many legacy acts” they will no longer need to offer free parent tickets; hopefully, the parents would want to come see the acts.

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Class of 2017 announced

Back in October, the nominees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame class of 2017 was announced. The lengthy list mostly included first-time nominees and others who have been nominated for the honor before. On Tuesday (Dec. 20), the official list for the class of 2017 was announced. Pearl Jam, Joan Baez, Tupac Shakur, Journey, Electric Light Orchestra, Yes, and Chic’s Nile Rodgers will be inducted into the Ohio-based museum in the spring of 2017.

Rodgers will receive the prestigious ‘Award For Musical Excellence’ while, sadly, this will mark the 11th time Chic has been snubbed for the honor. “It’s sort of bittersweet. I’m quite flattered that they believed that I was worthy, but my band Chic didn’t win,” Rodgers said in a recent interview with Rolling Stone. “They plucked me out of the band and said, ‘You’re better than Chic.’ That’s wacky to me. I am flattered and I think it’s cool, but I feel like somebody put me in the lifeboat and told my family they can’t get in.”

In a stunning twist, this year marked the first time inductees Tupac and Pearl Jam were eligible to be nominated for the honor. In order to be eligible for the Hall of Fame, a nominee’s first recording (or debut album) must have been released at least 25 years ago. The inductees beat out the likes of Bad Brains, Depeche Mode, The Cars, Jane’s Addition, and more. The inductees were selected by more than 900 voters from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame which includes artists, historians and music industry professionals.

For the past five years, fans have been able to cast their vote with the “fan ballot.” Electric Light Orchestra, Journey, Pearl Jam, and Yes won the fan ballot this year alongside The Cars.

The 32nd annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony is set to take place on April 7, 2017 from Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Like past years the ceremony will air on HBO at a later date. Ticket details will be announced in January.

Dashboard Confessional to embark on early 2017 tour


Brush up on “Hands Down” and “Vindicated” because Dashboard Confessional will be hitting the road in 2017. On Tuesday (Dec. 6), the Florida-founded band surprised fans when they announced a tour scheduled for the first two months of the new year. The upcoming trek will officially kick off on Jan. 17 at the Waiting Room in Buffalo, NY and wrap up a month later on Feb. 17 at The Fillmore in Charlotte, NC.

Pre-sales for Citi card members are currently ongoing while general ticket sales will begin this Friday, Dec. 9, at 10 a.m. local time. While the dates and venues have been unveiled, the guys in Dashboard have yet to formally announce who will be opening for them or if they will have any supporting acts at all.

The new tour announcement comes almost five months after wrapping up their time on the 2016 Rockstar Energy Drink’s Taste of Chaos tour. Alongside Taking Back Sunday, Saosin, Motion City Soundtrack, and the Starting Line, Dashboard Confessional helped resurrect “winter Warped” after its five-year hiatus.

Before embarking on Taste of Chaos, Dashboard gave fans hope that there would be a new record coming out sometime during the year when frontman Chris Carrabba posted a black-and-white video for a new song titled “May.” Sadly, it appeared to be a one-off track for the time being.

During a 2015 interview with Entertainment Weekly, Carrabba gave fans hope that the long-awaited follow-up to 2009’s Alter the Ending would be released in the near-future. “It really feels like we’re eager to write, which means there’s probably a new record coming out,” Carrabba teased at the time. “Who am I kidding? There’s a new record coming.”

Then, in a follow-up interview a year later, Carrabba once again made reference to new music and enjoying the process this time around, but admitted to not having a release date in mind. “I don’t have any idea of a release date or a worry about one for that matter but I’m really excited to be doing it because I don’t think it’s ever felt this much like the beginning again. No one’s paying attention.”

No matter what, let’s hope that this tour might just result in that new album seeing a 2017 release date. For now, the complete list of tour dates can be seen below.

Falling in Reverse announces tour with Motionless in White, Issues for 2017


Following a couple of head scratching cryptic messages on social media, Falling in Reverse has finally confirmed what they’ve had up their sleeves. On Wednesday (Nov. 30), the Las Vegas-founded band announced plans to hit the road as soon as the new year begins. The tour, which has been named the “The End is Here” tour will feature Falling in Reverse sharing a stage with Motionless in White and Issues.

The tour will kick off on Jan. 13 at the Marquee in Tempe, AZ and will wrap up a month later on Feb. 13 at the House of Blues in San Diego. Danger Kids and Dead Girls Academy will reportedly open for the two bands during the month-long excursion. General admission and VIP tickets will go on sale beginning this Friday, Dec. 2 on the tour’s official website here.

The tour announcement comes a couple of weeks after the band took to social media and began to hint at something. In an effort to garner attention, the guys from Falling in Reverse cleared all their social media accounts, unfollowed everyone, and then left several cryptic messages (which are now gone).

Bring Me the Horizon plan an ‘American Nightmare’


A week after teasing a North American tour in the near future on social media, Bring Me the Horizon has confirmed the outing scheduled for the spring. On Monday (Nov. 7), the British band announced plan to tour North America in early 2017. The tour, which has been named the “American Nightmare” tour, is set to kick off on March 10 at the Revention Music Center in Houston and wrap up a month later on April 8 at the Joint in Las Vegas.

Beartooth and the recently reunited Underoath have been confirmed as Bring Me the Horizon’s special guests for the excursion. Tickets for the tour will go on sale beginning this Friday, Nov. 11, at 10 a.m. local time.

The tour will be in support of Bring Me the Horizon’s recently released record, That’s the Spirit. Last week, the band released their somewhat creepy music video for “Oh No,” one of the many tracks featured on the record. Prior to the tour dates and music video reveal, the band announced the release of their live album. Live at Royal Albert Hall is set to be released on Dec. 2. The record was recorded back in April of 2016 at the Royal Albert Hall where they performed alongside a live orchestra. Pre-orders for the live album are currently available on the band’s website with proceeds from the sales going to the Teenage Cancer Trust.
