Posted by on November 12, 2019

Warped Tour founder, Kevin Lyman was on Kerrang!’s  Inside Track podcast and talked about how some bands didn’t want to be on the summer festival because Attila was part of the bill. The founder then went on to compliment the band and frontman Chris Fronzak for being good musicians and drawing crowds.

“And then people would come up to me and say ‘Well I don’t wanna be on ‘Warped Tour‘ cause Attila‘s on ‘Warped Tour‘. And I’d say ‘have you met the guys on Attila‘ [and they’d say] ‘No, I just don’t like their music. ‘suck my fuck’, what the fuck is that?’ I’m going ‘look we’re not here to judge each others music. The fans will judge each others music. Attila brings people. Do I personally run around singing ‘suck my fuck?’ No. Do you? No.’

But you know what… They’re good musicians and they’re not bad people. I’ve never seen them do a bad thing to someone. Some of the stuff he [Attila‘s Chris Fronzak] says, maybe, is just more stupidity [laughs.]

But if you sit with him, he has a reason because he says some things and it may not agree with your reason, but that was the… You could have diverse opinions and we’re only a microcosm of society now, because we can’t accept diverse opinions in the same room.”

Fronzak saw the interview and then proposed to Lyman on Twitter about bringing back and taking over Warped Tour.

I really want to bring @VansWarpedTour back. Let’s set up a meeting soon @KevinLyman. I promise I won’t let you down.

I’ve been in the music scene for over 15 years, I’ve built a legacy, I created a lifestyle, a record label, I even bought out my favorite record label growing up. I might as well take over my favorite tour & create a legacy for the future generations to come. The world needs it.

I’ve honestly been thinking about this for 2 years now. In this time period I’ve formulated a business plan and setup that would be viable for both bands and @VansWarpedTour itself. I have a chip on my shoulder and I wanna prove to the world that rock isn’t dead.

Can Fronzak be the one to bring back Warped Tour? Only time will tell.
