Welcome the 2016 Warped Tour Cover Stars!

Welcome the 2016 Warped Tour Cover Stars!

Amber Funk

Suns out, fun's out—it's finally here! Our annual WARPED TOUR issue has arrived! We've been talking to the bold people (and pup!) fronting SLEEPING WITH SIRENS, MOTIONLESS IN WHITE, TONIGHT ALIVE, REAL FRIENDS, THE WORD ALIVE and WATERPARKS. We also got your all-access pass to everything behind the scenes for what makes Warped Tour run—from advice on how to keep your chill when meeting your fave band to how current tour vets got their start (and how you can, too)! 

Plus, we spoke to over THIRTY bands about their first Warped experiences, biggest tour disasters and how they really feel about the catering. (Spoiler alert: They love it. Like, really love it.) We also have our intrepid Warped correspondent NICK MAJOR give you his breakdown of the "average" day on tour—surprise, it's always crazy, just like him! 

On top of all of this, we spoke to Caleb Shomo of BEARTOOTH about how he's staying angry, but genuine with this new record. We also had a chat with resident punks PUP about how they play 250 shows a year while still keeping it fresh.  

Throw in our limited-edition coloring pages and SIXTEEN Warped Tour posters, and you've got everything but the sunscreen.

We're all fans here—including Brendon Urie! So of course we got him in a room with his idol, Rivers Cuomo of WEEZER, to talk all about the Panic!/Weezer summer tour, math class and even Kanye West! We also called up members of PIERCE THE VEIL, SLEEPING WITH SIRENS, THE WONDER YEARS and REAL FRIENDS to talk to the people who made them pick up a guitar in the first place. 

Speaking of guitars, this month has our packed-out GUITARIST SPECIAL, where we spoke to the shredders of ALL TIME LOW, 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER, OF MICE & MEN and way more to spill how they got from practice scales to selling out stadiums. 

We also sit down with the emo survivalists MODERN BASEBALL about how they came back from the brink of their mental health, only to keep inspiring fan after fan. SAOSIN speak about reuniting with original frontman Anthony Green and new Fearless Records signees MOVEMENTS talk about their whirlwind success.

Plus, TWENTY ONE PILOTS' Josh Dun opens up about their arena tour and what their fans really mean to him. 

To top it all off, we have SIXTEEN posters of Brendon Urie to paper your locker, bedroom, mirror, friend's car, dad—just sing hallelujah!
