The 22nd year of punk rock’s most enduring tour is about to kick off, and we’ve got the essential guide for any Warped Tour warrior. This year, we’re looking backward and forward: We caught up with the frontmen of Attila, Creeper, Dance Gavin Dance, I Prevail, Knocked Loose, Movements and Too Close To Touch to find out their plans for superior rock domination this summer.

Then we reached out far and wide to speak with bands who have been a part of Warped’s history and had them share their stories of that one time at punk-rock summer camp. From horses defecating in the pit (no, really) to setting actual world records, these are VWT’s best insider stories. Members of Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance, Underoath, All Time Low and Good Charlotte, among many others, share their stories! Spoiler alert: A lot of people were eager to reminisce on Katy Perry’s involvement in 2008.

And if that’s not enough to convince you, we brought back our special Warped Tour coloring pages this year, this time featuring Andy Black, Beartooth, Jule Vera, Memphis May Fire, Neck Deep and New Years Day.  

Plus, we interview Stone Sour’s Corey Taylor about their upcoming album and offer advice on what to wear to the APMAs (along with your new look, get your tickets here).
