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.

Heavy psych-rockers Sun Voyager release debut album, play Baby’s All Right on 04.20

Imagine dipping Black Sabbath into a steaming pot of psychedelia and you’re pretty close to the sound of Sun Voyager. On 2015’s Lazy Daze – EP the band made use of heavy metal style riffs to wade through thick servings of reverb and distortion to occasionally shoegazey effect. Their debut full-length, Seismic Vibes, looks ready to amp up the psychedelics and deliver an even denser wash of sound and near droning rhythms. With a timely 4-20 release, the trio seems to have no problem with the psych-rock association. You can celebrate with the band when Sun Voyager plays a release show that night at Baby’s All Right, supported by Stuyedeyed. – Cameron Carr
