Another summer, another Warped tour! …But it’s already over, because the time went far too soon. Warped finished earlier this week, so this Friday playlist is dedicated to the ten bands I heard the most about over the course of this summer and that I definitely would have checked out if I’d been in America.
10) Never Shout Never
9) Set It Off
The song I’d want in their setlist? ‘Nightmare’.
8) Speak Low If You Speak Love
Speak Low If You Speak Love is the side project of State Champs’ backing vocalist Ryan Scott Graham. To the best of my knowledge, Speak Low If You Speak Love have never played a show in the UK, so it would be exciting to hear their heart-wrenching acoustic tracks live.
The song I’d want in their setlist? ‘Adjacent’.
7) Metro Station
With new album ‘To Those Left Behind’ on the way, Blessthefall have never been more on top of their game, so it would have been fantastic to see them on Warped.
The song I’d want in their setlist? ‘Guys Like You Make Us Look Bad’ – especially if they bought ex-vocalist Craig Mabbitt along!
4) August Burns Red
3) Mallory Knox
Despite the fact that I’ve already seen Mallory Knox multiple times, it would be a completely different atmosphere seeing them on Warped in America, so I’d need to catch their set.
The song I’d want in their setlist? ‘She Took Him To The Lake’.
2) Sleeping With Sirens
Favourite band, does it need any more explanation? I will see these guys live as many times as physically possible.
The song I’d want in their setlist? ‘My House’.
