Leaked Warped Tour 2016 Lineup Includes Whitechapel, Every Time I Die, Veil of Maya and More


Warped Tour always features a cadre of metal bands, with the festival’s metal quotient seemingly increasing in recent years as metal becomes more palatable to the masses and the lines between metal and punk grow ever more blurry.

And this year is no different! The PRP has what is reportedly the full lineup for Warped 2016, taken from a leaked admat for the August 9th show in Las Vegas.

Among the pop punk bands you’d expect to be atop the bill for any iteration of Warped — Less Than Jake, New Found Glory, Yellowcard, Mayday Parade, etc — this year’s lineup has several metal bands as well, among them Whitechapel, Every Time I Die, Veil of Maya, Issues, Chelsea Grin, Vanna and Old Wounds. Is this the tr00est of the tr00 group of bands that’ll attract scores of metalheads to the tour this year? No, not really. But if you’re a fan of all the other music on Warped and you like metal it offers some nice variety, and at the very least it’ll expose all those wimpy emo teenagers to something heavier… and some day a percentage of them will turn into Portal fans or whatever.

Here’s the full alleged leaked lineup, with the official announcement coming on March 22nd at 6pm EDT / 3pm PDT via the tour’s official website, where dates are already listed:
