Neither are Every Time I Die, Underoath, etc... It's not like only scenecore bands (dumb term btw) can play warped. That's really the only crowd that's gonna take them in.
Yeah, but ETID and Underoath can't/couldn't draw for shit. These are bands that went from playing to '0000s every night to '000s and Warped is/was a good way for them to still play to huge crowds. BMTH on the other hand are more or less at the top of their popularity AND they're apparently going for a new sound. I woulda thought that they'd wanna have a huge headliner where they could have a show with all the theatrics and pick specific openers and kinda go all out, especially considering they've been more or less under the radar for the last year or so.

I can't complain because like I said, this might be the only time I'd pay the ticket price to see this band, but I mean, I was under the impression that BMTH were trying to distance themselves and do their own shit.

ok admittedly I havent listened to them recently. But then what tour should they do? what bands do they tour with? what fans would latch onto them?

The only answer i see is Warped tour. Its not like theyll ever play Coachella or Lollapalooza, or tour with the 'cooler' metal bands ala Converge.
I'm sure BMTH has/will offer Converge an opening spot on a tour, but I'm also positive that Converge would turn that down. If we're talking about supporting tours, I could see them opening for Linkin Park or Slipknot, or Maiden, one of the arena-metal bands. For openers, I'd imagine they'd bring out the other "bigger" numetalcore bands like Parkway, TDWP, Pierce the Veil or whatever.


Also KAZI, BMTH is still scene haha any change will be purely image, and maybe some atmospheric synths to make it "post rock".

Opting to do a big headlining tour over Warped isn't the same as distancing yourself from the warped scene. The people who would attend their headliner are the same people (for the most part) who would attend next year's Warped. Aside from their popularity increasing their fanbase is still essentially the same, their sound is still one that fits really well with the Warped scene.

As much as I loved their last album, I will not be seeing them. Saw them once and it was such a shitty performance it was unreal.

i'm okay with this. If only they played a set with just songs from There Is A Hell.... and their new one, which sounds promising.

I'm a bit surprised that they didn't want to try something new instead of Warped though.

There are a couple bands that were on the Monster stage that will be on Main this year. No big surprises haha.
I'm guessing For Today & Sleeping With Sirens. I want to say Title Fight but I doubt it. ):

I wish Kevin would get bands like Trash Talk, Defeater, Mountain Main, etc. to play, they can probably do well on Warped.

I'm still waiting for the "heavy" band list to include Cattle Decapitation.

well there goes my hope for NOFX and Pennywise for Main Stage. Warped is a joke now.
