Rob Zombie, Bring Me the Horizon, and The Used are just some of the bands heading to Las Vegas in October for the third annual Las Rageous music festival. On Tuesday (June 11), festival organizers unveiled the lineup for this year’s multi-day event.

He adds: “We are looking forward to bringing some of the world’s biggest acts to Downtown Las Vegas for the third year in a row.”

“A lot of festivals take a few years to develop loyalty in the field of tourism, but we’re seeing fans return to Las Rageous for their second or third year based on [the] quality of experience from prior years,” said Bud Pico, general manager of the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center.

“Customer satisfaction significantly contributes to the social and economic benefits Las Rageous has generated for the City of Las Vegas.”

In addition to the rocking lineup, the event will also feature several new onsite activities like the Bud Light Rock & Refuel Culinary Experience featuring a wide array of dining options and an onsite wedding experience for those feeling a little romantic.

Las Rageous will return to the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center in Las Vegas during the weekend of Oct. 18 -19.

Dance Gavin Dance to embark on springtime ‘Artificial Selection’ tour

It looks like Dance Gavin Dance are ready to take their brand new album, Artificial Selection, back on the road this spring. On Tuesday (Jan. 8), the California-founded band announced plans to embark on a massive North American tour during the springtime months. Dubbed the Artificial Selection tour, the upcoming trek will find the six-piece performing across the United States and Canada during the months of March, April, and May.

The 29-stop tour will find the band performing at venues in cities including Las Vegas, Phoenix, Dallas, Philadelphia, Fort Lauderdale, Detroit, Seattle, Denver, Toronto, and more. The forthcoming outing will begin on March 31 at the Regency in San Francisco and conclude a month and a half later on May 10 at The Catalyst in Santa Cruz, California.

Periphery, Don Broco, Hail the Sun, and Covet will join Dance Gavin Dance throughout the excursion.

Tickets for the upcoming tour will go on sale beginning this Friday, Jan. 11, at 10 a.m. local time. VIP tickets are currently available on the band’s website.

The tour is support of Dance Gavin Dance’s 2018 release, Artificial Selection. The album, the group’s eighth studio effort, was released via rise Records in the summer and peaked at the number 15 spot on the Billboard 200 chart.

The band released a total of four singles prior to the record’s release; “Midnight Crusade,” “Son of Robot,” “Care,” and “Count Bassy.”

Prior to embarking on the new tour, the band will host their first annual Swan Fest. Last November, Dance Gavin Dance announced plans to launch their personally curated music festival with the help of their record label, Rise Records.

Anberlin to reunite at Underoath’s hometown show in December

The guys from Anberlin are getting the band together, but there’s a catch; it’s for one night only. On Thursday (Oct. 18), the Winter Haven-founded band took to social media to announce plans to reunite for one show. The gig, which will take at the Yuengling Center in Tampa on Dec. 14, will find the formerly defunct band opening for fellow Florida-founded act Underoath.

“We’ve been playing shows in the Tampa area with Anberlin since we were basically kids,” a statement from Underoath begins. “We knew them coming back to play this hometown show with us was a big ask—but it just felt right. We have said we couldn’t be more pumped to close out the Erase Me tour with this show in our hometown. But we’ve been proven wrong.”

Anberlin drummer Nathan Young mirrors Underoath’s sentiments: “All the Anberlin dudes reconnected over this last year, hung on the beach together, and then, when we got asked to play this show with Underoath, in our hometown, the answer was, ‘yeah!”

Young continues: “I mean why wouldn’t we do that? Life is short and we should almost always say ‘yes’ to rad stuff. Plus, we’ve been homies with Underoath for 15-plus years. [Guitarist] Tim [McTague] is my brother-in-law and we’ve never played a proper show together. It’s just way overdue.”

Anberlin will join Crown the Empire, Dance Gavin Dance, and the Plot in You on that night’s roster.

To purchase tickets for the show, head on over the Yuengling Center’s website here.

The surprise announcement comes months after the band members began posting small, band-centric items on social media. The posts weren’t major enough to warrant speculations that a reunion could be in the cards, but enough to make fans wonder if maybe they were up to something.

Anberlin formally announced plans to disband in August of 2014. Before laying the band to rest, the five-piece went on a massive final tour that found them performing across the continent before taking the stage for the last time on Nov. 26, 2014 at the House of Blues in their quasi-hometown of Orlando.

Anberlin’s final studio album was 2014’s Lowborn (via Tooth & Nail).

As for Underoath, the upcoming tour is in support of their recently released record, Erase Me (via Fearless Records). The album was met with favorable reviews by critics and fans alike. The album, the group’s eighth, peaked at the number 16 spot on Billboard’s 200 chart, the number four spot on the Top Rock Albums chart, and the top spot on the Top Hard Rock Albums chart.

This show will also be a historic one for the six-piece as it will be the first time a Tampa Bay band has ever headlined a Tampa Bay arena.

Underoath announce ‘No Fix’ spring tour

About a week after confirming their official return to the music world, Underoath have given fans even more good news. On Monday (Feb. 26), the Florida-founded band announced plans to hit the road during the spring and summer months. The No Fix tour is set to kick off on April 20 with Underoath’s appearance at the inaugural Las Rageous Festival in Las Vegas. After traveling across North America and Europe, the excursion will wrap up on Aug. 25 at the Leeds Festival in the United Kingdom.

Supporting Underoath during the tour will be Dance Gavin Dance, Veil of Maya, and Limbs.

General ticket sales will begin this Friday, March 2 at 10 a.m. local time. For those who would like to secure tickets before anyone else, the band is currently offering VIP packages. The packages are limited to a few per city and will include a meet and greet and photo-op with Underoath, access to a pre-show soundcheck, and an exclusive tour vinyl of their new album, Erase Me. Every ticket purchased for this tour will include a digital download of Erase Me.

The No Fix tour comes almost two years after Underoath headed out on their first post-hiatus tour. In 2016, the group embarked on the Rebirth tour which included appearances at South By So What?! and the 2016 edition of A Day to Remember’s annual Self Help Fest.

Last week, Underoath not only announced the release of Erase Me, they also unleashed the music video for the record’s lead single, “On My Teeth.” The music video for the new song can be seen above.

Erase Me is set to be released on April 6 through the band’s new home of Fearless Records. Erase Me is the long-awaited follow-up to 2010’s Ø (Disambiguation).

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.
