This year's Warped tour will feature something old and something new, and more than likely a few things black and blue.
The tour will continue to feature its usual doses of frenzied punk with Bad Religion and NOFX already confirmed for this year's line-up. A Warped spokesperson also confirms that the tour is also in talks with X to play select dates of the tour as well. It is rumored that Rancid and 22 Jacks will also be on the bill, but a Warped spokesperson could not confirm the involvement of either band.
This year, the tour will chart new territory with the arrival of what is being billed as "The Ladies Lounge." The Warped camp says the Lounge will feature booths, displays, speakers, and riders in an attempt to spotlight females in action sports. Professional vert skater Jen O'Brien and pro snowboarder Morgan LaFonte will be among the athletes featured in the Lounge.
No dates are set yet for the Warped tour, but we'll keep you posted.
