A Review of Warped Tour 2016

–By Dennis Gibbons Summer is at an end and the true beginning of fall has arrived. While fall is here, the heat of summer still lingers for some in the US. This summer was eventful for me, and many of my friends, with multiple tours going on and lots of good times being had. I had a chance to attend the 2016 Vans Warped Tour in Camden in July at the BB&T Pavilion, formerly known as the Susquehanna Bank Center. It was a sweltering hot day, which caused many to faint from the heat from just standing in line while waiting for the gates to open. Many people had heat issues throughout the day due to improper hydration, even though water was readily available and a free fountain to refill beverage containers was running throughout the day. The day was filled with many many great performances. My top 3 would be Sum 41, Whitechapel, and Motionless in White. All three bands were full of energy and had the crowd going crazy from the start.

Coverage of the Traitors – With Dennis Gibbons!

It’s only been a few months since their most recent release of “Sleep Disorder”, but Traitors is back in the studio recording and writing their new album as you read this! It’s sure to feature a more evolved Traitors with new vocal techniques coming from their awesome vocalist, Tyler Shelton. There is no projected release date as of now, but be sure to follow their Facebook page for more info at:https://www.facebook.com/Traitorsfl Traitors is a Metal band based out of Florida. Their members are Tyler Shelton on Vocals, Stephen Arango on Drums, Mikey Ingram on Guitar, Alan de la Torre on Guitar, and Dave Moore on Bass. This lineup contains some of Florida’s best and brightest musicians, making for an incredible music experience at each show. One can describe their music as heavy hitting, crushing, and worthy of a violent mosh session with friends. If you happen to attend one of their live shows, which I assure you will be a great experience, you can expect the same. I was able to hang out with Traitors on their latest tour with Oceano in Philly back in April, thanks to Stephen Arango, and it sure was a great time. We got to converse about music, their future projects, and what was going on that night. The concert was held at Voltage Lounge in Philadelphia, a small venue with a bar attached to the Electric Factory. It is a nice venue with...
