Good Charlotte, Simple Plan, The Starting Line, And More Join “Warped Rewind At Sea”

It’s officially Winter in NYC and we’re already looking forward to next Summer at the Warped Tour with all our favorite bands.  Warped Tour Founder, Kevin Lyman and the Warped Tour Team are giving us an early Christmas present and a second Warped Weekend in 2017 called “Warped Rewind At Sea“!

“Warped Rewind At Sea” is a 5 day cruise from New Orleans to Cozumel, Mexico on the Norwegian Pearl Cruise ship.  Joining the inaugural cruise are 3OH!3, Cartel, Bowling For Soup, Good Charlotte, Simple Plan, Less Than Jake, and Reel Big Fish with more artists and fun activities to be announced!  It’s like we were planning our dream tour line up and decided to ship it off to Mexico.  Emo Nite will also be on hand to deliver some serious throwbacks – as if the whole cruise isn’t the best thing since sliced bread.

Grab your passports, swimsuits, sun screen, and your best costumes because “Warped Rewind At Sea” sets sail from New Orleans October 28th -Nov 1st.  Yeah, you get to spend Halloween on a cruise ship with Good Charlotte, 3OH!3, Less Than Jake, and Simple Plan!! We’re not crying, you’re crying!!!   Book now for first choice of staterooms and let’s get warped at sea together!

“Warped Rewind At Sea” is literally our 13 year old fangirl dreams coming to life and we’ve already sent mass texts to book our own stateroom on this boat.  On top of sailing with some of our favorite bands, Kevin Lyman will host a special Q&A session, theme nights and concerts every night by the bands, and there will even be special excursions in Cozumel for cruisers.  You could be playing blackjack, shooting hoops, and even getting wild in the pool with your favorite band on this boat (we’ll try to keep it together for all of us.)

Click HERE for more info on the cruise, what you’ll need to book the best stateroom for you and your squad, as well as updates on the cruise.  Everything from meals to pool and hot tub amenities as well as spa treatments, casinos, sports facilities, and even the concerts on the ship are included in the price so really, this cruise is a steal!!

The Friday Five: 2016 Pop Punk Albums

2016 is off to a great start and with so much new music to look forward to, we’re breaking it down to our Friday Five pop punk albums (and EPs) that we’re stoked about!  We’ve got some oldies coming back for more, some newbies here to break new ground, and a genre that’s here to stay, saying “we’re more than just a phase, MOM!!!”

1. Good Charlotte: Untitled
Out: Spring 2016

Benji and Joel Madden are back with their original gang of misfits from Waldorf (worldwide) and are promising a new album filled with familiar sounds.  No word on an official release date yet but they’ve been reawakened by the pop punk forefathers are are working with John Feldman on this new record!

2. Simple Plan: Taking One For The Team
Out: Feb 19th, 2016

Pierre, Jeff, David, Chuck, and Seb never actually stopped making albums as Simple Plan, they just flew under the radar for a few years. Now that pop punk is having a revival of sorts, they’re here to show the newbies that you can branch out and have Nelly on a pop punk album with a video that looks like a 90s boyband throwback.

3. Waterparks: Cluster 
Out: Jan 15th, 2015
Waterparks recently signed with Equal Vision Records and MDDN management but these guys are set to be the most promising breakout of 2016.  Their new EP “Cluster” is sure to be filled with infectious hooks, sing along choruses, and melodies that’ll have you craving for more! (see what we did there?)  We suggest you get on this bandwagon before it’s too late – these guys are gonna be HUGE!

4. The Starting Line – “Anyways”
Out: Feb 5th, 2016
The Starting Line have been teasing new music at their annual Holiday Show for a while now but the tail end of 2015 saw the release of their first new song in SEVEN YEARS!!!!  We may or may not have clutched our computers and cried while we listened to it (spoiler: we did.) “Anyways”, the EP comes out February 5th and you should get it because The Starting Line Rock (.com)!

5. SWMRS – “Drive North”
Out: February 12th, 2016
Formerly known as “Emily’s Army” and featuring Joey Armstrong (yes, Billie Joe’s son & spitting image), SWMRS are the epitome of the Bay Area music scene.  They match bubblegum power pop with grit of punk rock to churn out a fun perpetual summer sound all their own.  Catch them on their first headlining tour this Spring!  Get the dates here.
