Look at that picture.
That was snapped by someone backstage during a stop on the Warped Tour, the most metal tour on the planet.
The worthless band using those fake amps is Black Veil Brides.
I don’t even know where to start. I know bands have done this in the past for show, but does that make it right?
I have been to plenty of concerts in larger venues where bands have lugged huge amps onto the stage, and I watched them plug in. On fests. That travelled the country. So what gives?
Are these guys even playing at their Warped stops, or are they piping in audio? If you like this band, I genuinely feel sorry for you.
You’ve been duped. And you apparently like what I consider to be the audio equivalent of HPV.
That photo was shared by The Bronx’s drummer Jorma Vik.
I wonder if their roadies pretend their uber heavy when they load them on to the stage, to keep up the act. I get that they’re for show, but that’s fucking whack.
“A friend of mine took this photo at Warped Tour. This is what the kids are calling ‘rock n roll’ these days,” he says. “I’m lighting fire to every drum I have and becoming an investment banker.”
I think we all should do that.
