Many people know Dylan Minnette for his TV and film work as the actor has been in the game for more than a decade with roles in everything from Lost to Goosebumps. His current hit show 13 Reasons Why was just renewed for a third season, but Minnette has somehow found the time to pursue a music career as the co-frontman and guitarist of indie act Wallows.

Music isn’t a new venture, however, as Minnette, co-frontman/guitarist Braeden Lemasters and drummer Cole Preston have been playing music with each other for years under various names. The trio’s previous endeavor went by the Feaver and during that time scored a spot on the Ernie Ball stage of the Vans Warped Tour in 2011.
The band launched a ReverbNation account to enter the competition, which still houses some old recordings. Minnette (seen below in the burgundy shirt) was only 14 at the time the band landed the festival gig for the Ventura, California, stop of the tour.
We’re about as hyped as the person filming this.
Minnette was also pretty hyped:
I still cannot believe we’re playing Warped Tour tomorrow.

Like, really hyped:
If anyone is going to Warped Tour in Ventura tomorrow, PLEASE look for my band The Feaver’s time slot on the big board when you walk in!!!

Warped Tour was great. Never been so sunburned in my life though.
