Warped Tour Breakout Artist Blessthefall Hits The Road With Cool Artists
A major standout from this summer’s stellar Van’s Warped Tour is Arizona’s Blessthefall. Their incendiary set, which included their own “wall of death” mosh pit that drove audiences into a complete frenzy, won over new fans on a daily basis, leaving them a sweaty, exhausted mess.
Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman recently said, "Blessthefall are one of the rising stars of this year´s tour. Their crowds increased every single day.”
As the band’s profile skyrocketed over the summer, fans voted them into the top spot in the Energizer “Demand It” contest in Phoenix, Virginia Beach and Montreal, earning Blessthefall longer sets in each city. Stalwarts of the Smartpunk stage, this summer saw the debut of their “Guys Like You Make Us Look Bad” video, enjoying a solid two-month run on MTV’s “Headbangers Ball” and Fuse’s “Uranium.”
The Myspace “Featured Artist” in April, the band’s stats have risen through the roof lately with nearly 1 million plays of their video; their current friend count is nearly at 105,000 with over 2 million profile views. Indeed Blessthefall is poised to build on their Warped Tour momentum as they prepare to hit the road this fall with Escape the Fate, before joining Silverstein overseas at the end of the year.
