100 bands you need to know tour diary the menzingers lemuria pup cayetana photograpy


The Story

Photographer Kara Smarsh recently hit the road with PUP, one of our 100 bands you need to know this year, on their current tour opening for the Menzingers, and captured the whole thing in this new photo diary. 

You can catch the tour, which also includes Lemuria and Cayetana this summer through early July at the following dates: 

June 26 Austin, TX - Red 7 Inside 
June 29 Houston, TX - Fitzgeralds Downstairs
June 30 New Orleans, LA - Siberia                 
July 02 Tampa FL - Orpheum 
July 03 Orlando, FL - The Social 
July 04 Atlanta, GA - The Masquerade - Middle 
July 05 Richmond, VA - Strange Matter 
July 06 Baltimore, MD - Ottobar 

"Touring in support of the recent release of their self-titled album, PUP has garnered acclaim from both album reviewers listening at home through their headphones and concert patrons seeing and hearing them for the first time live and in person. Often shooting from the crowd across the Northeast gave me the opportunity to personally hear concert-goers confirm with each other their positive impressions of a band that they had never heard before.

As they would say, "Second of four doesn't get a sound check," which also means that they had one chance every night to dominate the stage and gain new fans with their energetic, emotionally-driven and infectious set. The Menzingers' Rented World tour was the perfect platform for them to perform to new audiences and sold-out crowds and to also show that they could hold their own among veterans of their scene.

Over the four days I spent with PUP, documenting their daily lives as much as their nightly performances, I also lived their daily lives. At one point, guitarist Steve Sladkowski commented that when he didn't necessarily feel like playing a show, he would just remind himself that he only had to work for half an hour each day and he had only that time to give it his all. In reality, these guys give everything they have on a daily basis and have sacrificed time with loved ones and promising careers in the pursuit of their passions for playing music, and they're finding a lot of success that only they would consider unexpected." —Kara Smarsh

reunion midtown gabe saporta secret show live photography


The Story

Last night (May 14) in Brooklyn at the Knitting Factory, a mysterious band billed as "Merman" (or "Brotown" in some circles) made their grand reunion. Of course, "Brotown" is simply the moniker of Midtown who announced their return in February (read more about that in our exclusive Q&A with Gabe Saporta). 

AP photographer Rebecca Reed was there for the show and takes you inside the packed Knitting Factory with these 27 photos. 

Photographer notes:

"Such Hounds opened; Rob absolutely loves them and wanted them on the show. "Merman" Midtown was all original members and played for a little more than an hour-and-a-half. They opened with songs off Lose the World, Save The Girl and ended the night with "Just Rock and Roll"

They talked briefly about what they've been doing for the past 10 years personally—married, kid, day jobs—but nothing about other musical projects.

 It was like being at their shows in the early 2000s Same people, same songs and same exact energy! It was a déjà vu moment that lasted all night, and it was super fun!"

The Story

We've been a sponsor of Riot Fest for the past six years, and we've always been impressed with the lineups they've assembled, but our jaws hit the freakin' floor when we saw this year's lineup for the Chicago iteration (Sept. 13-15 at Humboldt Park).

To say this bill is stacked with talent is the understatement of the year—and not only that, but it's stacked with tons of former AP cover stars. Take a stroll through some of the highlights of this year's Riot Fest Chicago lineup that overlaps quite nicely with our 28-year history.

warped tour defeater


The Story

A note from photographer Brian Radmond, who was on tour with the band this summer: 

"Defeater played on the Monster Energy stage most days with the exception of the times they were called up to the main stage. The camaraderie displayed by every band, stagehand, sound engineer, and stage manager on the each stage goes unparalleled by any other tour and this love was equally spread to the guys of Defeater.

About halfway through their run on Warped, Defeater released their new album Letters Home.  Each day when the band played “Bastards,” the first track off the album, the response was beyond imagination.

It was very clear that each member of Defeater was there to be involved in as much as possible on the tour, and the love and respect they received from fans and fellow tour members in return was incredible.

Through Warped Tour, I felt like I was living out a movie--riding along with a band that’s on the cusp of being full-time and seeing first hand the trials and tribulations of what it takes to be a modern, professional band. In the process I’ve gained friends that I’ll have for the rest of my life.

Defeater truly is one of the greatest bands in hardcore not only for their talents as musicians but also for their merits as human beings. I’ve never seen a group of dudes that truly cares as much about their music and their surroundings as them."

Planning your outfit is one often overlooked, but desperately crucial parts of having the best day ever at Warped Tour.

From chic and fabulous to casual and practical, we took our cameras out trend-spotting on the west coast dates to see what you were wearing.

Daisy crowns, cut-off tanks, snapbacks, denim vests, crop-tops and booty shorts (on boys) seemed to be the name of the game.

Check it out, and tell us what you’re wearing to Warped this year in the comments!
