Vanna Sign To Pure Noise Records

vanna_2If you ask us, Vanna is having a pretty great year. In addition to being added to the 2014 Vans Warped Tour, the Boston natives have just signed with Pure Noise Records, and will be releasing their label debut this June. Speaking about the signing, Vanna said, “The entire idea of making music is to be able to share your passion your frustrations your problems with as many people as possible, that’s always been our goal as a band. In saying that we always strive to work with people who feel the same way we do. Pure Noise Records is about that exactly. After co-releasing The Few and The Far Between on vinyl last year and seeing what the record label is all about, we as a band felt that Pure Noise would be a good home for our future and a step in the direction that we wanted to take. We are honored to join the Pure Noise Records roster, full of amazing bands that are just killing it. We look forward to the future, as our musical family grows larger. Thank you for listening. I believe in you if you believe in me.”

Catch the band on Vans Warped Tour this summer, and keep an eye out for more details on their June release.

Warped Tour Announces Real Friends, Motionless In White, And More

Warped Tour 2014One thing fans of Warped Tour seem to have a love/hate relationship with is the diversity of acts on the tour. In one corner, pop-punk rules; in another, metal prevails… and tucked away in another, we find ska, reggae, or even the acoustic tent. Say what you will, but the diversity does add a certain level of mystique, especially when trying to guess who the new additions will be. Fuse TV ended the suspense on last night’s episode of Warped Roadies by announcing another diverse mix that includes Real Friends, Motionless In White, The Word Alive, The Wild Life, and Courage My Love. Check out previously announced bands along with the new routing below. Continue reading ‘Warped Tour Announces Real Friends, Motionless In White, And More’

Vans And Metallica Team Up For Custom Shoe Line

In a continuation of Vans’ partnership with Metallica, the California shoe company has just released four new custom shoes, each representing one member of the legendary metal act. To design the shoes, Vans encouraged the band members to take inspiration from music and action sports to create shoes that represented their own individual styles. The results are unique takes on four classic Vans shoes: the Sk8-Hi Deconstruct, Era Laceless, Slip-On, and Escuela.

While these are the first custom shoes designed in partnership with individual members of the band in mind, it’s not the first time the brand and band have collaborated. This past October, marking the 20-year anniversary of the Half Cab Pro, Vans released a Metallica version of that shoe featuring the artwork to the band’s debut album Kill ‘Em All. This February, Vans plans to release two more shoes celebrating the album. Check out James Hetfield’s custom shoe below, and see the rest after the jump.

Watch The Full Premiere Of “Warped Roadies”

The Vans Warped Tour is the one of the longest running tours in America, not to mention probably the most challenging. For about 80 days straight, 1,000+ crew members wake up at the crack of dawn every morning and work in non-stop grueling conditions late into the evening. It takes a hell of a lot of manpower and endurance to keep the well oiled Warped machine running, but many people do not realize this. That’s why Fuse decided to document this past summer’s 2012 Warped Tour for their new show Warped Roadies, in which they follow the crew—NOT the rockstars—who work their asses off every day behind the scenes to make it all happen. They are the backbone of the whole machine, without whom none of it could be possible. Click here to watch the full series premiere before it airs this Friday, December 7 at 11/10c.
