Vow of Volition Make the Final Round of the Battle for Warped Tour

The Vans Warped Tour was the first festival for many of us back in the day. As young'ns, it's likely we didn't necessarily think about all that went into figuring out the bands to book and play the whole shebang. Part of that process, at least locally, seems to be through a series "battle of the bands" style competitions specifically for landing a spot on the fest. Quite a few Portland bands have been furiously playing against one another for said spot, and djent/prog metal act Vow of Volition are one of the acts that made it to the finals.

Warped Tour was always the type of festival that included much in the realm of pop punk, punk punk, emo and metal, so Vow of Volition's advancement to the final round is no surprise. Their incredibly technical, at times jazzy metal stands out in Portland's pretty linear popular music scene, and is much worthy of the attention its getting.

Those that want to support Vow of Volition in driving home the permanent spot can go to the Battle for Warped Tour finals Saturday at the Hawthorne Theatre.

Sprues & Runners offer an emo treasure in new EP "Trips To The Caribbean"

Emo music seems a rarity in the days of overproduced dream-pop hits, and so an EP like Sprues & RunnersTrips To The Caribbean takes on the form of a treasure chest found in a cove breezy with 2003 winds. The furious pace of “Red Teeth,” with its serrated screams and eruptive drums, comes after a curious serenity where surf-rock influences sway you gently, and then ultimately swing you violently. “The Opening” lets the instruments fly, and embraces that thin film of garage comradery that also propelled emo to the top of the charts oh not so long ago. There is no doubt that there are still treasures to be found out there in the sonic isles of the modern world, here is one that Providence’s Sprues & Runners are offering a clear map to. Listen to the euphoric breakdown in “Cactus” streaming below. - Rene Cobar
