When an event has been around for 13 years, it's usually time to shake things up. And while Ozzfest chose to do that by going free, the Vans Warped tour opted to piece together one of its most diverse rosters to date. While not a metal tour, it does feature a hand full of heavier metalcore and screamo bands, most notably Norma Jean, As I Lay Dying, Funeral For A Friend, Haste The Day, Parkway Drive, and Maylene and the Sons of Disaster.
The tour, which will kick off June 28 at Chula Vista, California's Coors Amphitheater, is currently slated to play 45 shows through an August 25 date in Los Angeles with a lineup that includes Coheed and Cambria, Bad Religion, New Found Glory, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Cute Is What We Aim For, Bayside and Canadian rapper K-os.
Among the other groups that will be on the road with Warped all summer are Amber Pacific, Circa Survive, Tiger Army, Escape the Fate, Hot Rod Circuit, Big D and the Kids Table, Paramore, Gallows, the Matches, the Fabulous Rudies, Meg and Dia, All Time Low, Bleed the Dream, the Unseen, Spill Canvas, Evaline, Bless the Fall, Boys Like Girls, My American Heart, Vincent Black Shadow, Throw the Fight and Pepper.
Tour founder Kevin Lyman said he had plenty of options to choose from when putting together the roster. "We received over 4,000 submissions, so in booking the tour this year I felt that a diverse lineup was in order," he said in a press release announcing the dates. "The tour has always been a place to explore and discover new music. This year's lineup has old school, emo, punk, screamo, hip-hop, more ska than you have seen in a long time and everything in between. If you're open-minded, this will be a great show."
Members of the online Warped community will get their annual shot at Internet presale tickets starting April 1, where they'll be offered a ticket and a copy of the Warped Tour double-disc compilation for $19.99.
Among the other acts scheduled to play select dates are: A Static Lullaby, the Actual, Agent Orange, Alesana, Alkaline Trio, the Almost, Anberlin, As Cities Burn, As I Lay Dying, the Automatic, Biffy Clyro, the Briefs, the Briggs, Buck O Nine, Cinematic Sunrise, the Confession, the Dear and Departed, Drop Dead Gorgeous, Envy on the Coast, the Fall of Troy, Family Force 5, Fishbone, Flogging Molly, the Fold, Funeral for a Friend, the Graduate, Haste the Day, Hawthorne Heights, Human Abstract, I Am Ghost, Madina Lake, Mayday Parade, Maylene and the Sons of Disaster, New Year's Day, Norma Jean, Parkway Drive, Pennywise, Pistolita, Play Radio Play, POS, Poison the Well, Scary Kids Scaring Kids, Set Your Goals, So They Say, the Starting Line, Straylight Run, Supernova, the Toasters, Underoath, the Used, Valencia, The Vandals and Yellowcard.
More bands and dates are expected to be added in coming months.

At the forefront of digital innovation, Immortal has embraced the opportunity to be the first label to release an album exclusively through MySpace. “We have tremendous respect for MySpace and its ability to market music directly to the fans,” notes Immortal Records CEO Happy Walters. “MySpace has played such an invaluable role in the development of these artists’ careers.”
"We are honored that Immortal Records chose Cure Autism Now as the beneficiary of their A Santa Cause holiday release," says Peter Bell, President and CEO of Cure Autism Now. "As autism has become a major health crisis around the world, we are grateful to organizations such as Immortal Records for raising awareness about autism and funding for our research and treatment programs through their innovative music projects."

After one European tour and 2 weeks into their tour with Bleeding Through & Every Time I Die, Haste the Day have made Stephen Keech a permanent fixture in the band. Stephen replaces Jimmy Ryan as the lead singer for Haste the Day. Jimmy Ryan made his decision to depart the band known back late November of 2005. His decision to leave was strictly personal and was amicable.
Haste the Day became aware of Keech in early 2005 through his involvement in bands locally in Denver Colorado. When Jimmy Ryan’s decision to depart was made known internally, the search began and Keech’s name was one of the first to come up. After several discussions and much thought were put forth, Keech was asked to join the band for a 3 week European tour in January of 2006.
After two weeks of tour in the U.S. Haste the Day announced on stage in Denver Colorado, Keech’s permanent addition to the band.
MTV2 and Roadrunner Records have announced the release of the third installment in the successful series – MTV2 HEADBANGERS BALL: THE REVENGE. The low priced, double-disc is due in stores on April 11, 2006.
On the heels of the Gold certification of the first installment, MTV2 HEADBANGERS BALL, VOLUME 1 and the success with MTV2 HEADBANGERS BALL, VOLUME 2, MTV2 and Roadrunner Records once again set out to gather the very best in Hard Rock and Heavy Metal. The result is more than 2 1/2 hours of music on 2 CDs: disc one represents the strongest tracks from today's biggest rock bands, and disc two brings together the strongest up-and-comers from the underground rock scene.
In addition to the genre-defining anthems that represent the best of the show, there are enough rare and unreleased tracks to satisfy tastemaker metal fans as well. Packed with a total of 38 hard-charging tracks, this collection has 7 exclusive offerings. They include the Terry Date mix of Slipknot's "Before I Forget", and the live recording of Killswitch Engage's "A Bid Farewell", which both see their first CD release on this compilation. Other exclusives are brand new tracks from Hatebreed and Walls Of Jericho, both of which were written especially for this release (Hatebreed's lead vocalist, Jamey Jasta, is the host of the Headbangers Ball program on MTV2). A video for the Hatebreed track, entitled "To The Threshold", will air on video channels in March. A side project of Jasta's, Kingdom of Sorrow (which also includes members of Down, Crowbar and Seemless), also throws a brand new track into the ring. The compilation beat Dragonforce and 36 Crazyfists' record releases to the punch with fresh new tracks from these up-and-comers.

Haste The Day recently said goodbye to longtime friend and band vocalist Jimmy Ryan, whose final show at the Knights of Columbus in Indianapolis, IN was an amazing night for all. The crowd was more than lively and emotions ran high as the night erupted. Jimmy left the band gracefully and ended his career with Haste the Day, by far, with his best performance ever. The sold-out crowd's energy was felt and heard as their voices over powered the band throughout the night. Expect to see a DVD of the show to surface later this year.
Now, Haste the Day welcomes Stephen Keech, from Denver, to take on the lead vocal spot on their current European tour with The Juliana Theory; then in the U.S. this February with the group as they set out on the Bleeding Through, Every Time I Die, and Between The Buried And Me tour. HTD's new release, "When Everything Falls" (6/05) has currently sold more than 40,000 copies in the U.S. alone and is primed to excel with the exposure the band will receive from the next few months of hard work touring around the globe.
Haste The Day vocalist Jimmy Ryan has left the group on good terms. He has released the following statement:
"So, I've decided to leave the band. Before anyone jumps to any conclusions, it was my own decision. I feel like this chapter in my life is coming to a close and it is time for me to move on. The guys in my band are my best friends and my brothers and my decision to leave has been a difficult one. I will miss them quite a bit as they continue on and as the band continues to grow as I am confident it will. The past 4 years have been some of the best years of my life. I want to thank everyone that I've met while traveling all over the nation for sharing your lives, your homes, your cities, your emotions and your love with me and the band.
I have a list of people about 10 miles long that I want to thank but I could go on for days about how you all have affected my life so positively. So let me thank you all here, you know who you are.
I'm stoked to move on but sad to say goodbye after these last few weeks on tour as I finish out the year with the guys. My last show will be December 30th @ The Knights of Columbus in Indianapolis, Indiana. If you can come out, please do so we can have one last dance."
Full Lock Media are putting out a Hardcore compilation DVD, This Ain't Your Mom's Hardcore Vol. 1. The 2 hour DVD is scheduled for release November 15 and will be available for purchase in Hot Topic stores nationwide. You can preview the video here.
