CHICAGO (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Madina Lake has dropped from the lineup for the Vans Warped Tour after an apparent scheduling conflict.
A spokesman for the band left this statement on their website:
I'm afraid we have some bad news about Warped.. in short we’re not on it anymore. its kind of complicated but here goes…
We wanted to do the entire tour but there were only 3 weeks available to us. so naturally we started looking for other tours around those warped dates to jump on so we could continue to tour the entire country. turns out warped, like most tours, has certain policies about bands playing the same markets within a certain amount of time of the actual warped dates and unfortunately this is what forced us to drop off. we will be announcing a huge tour in 14 days that will allow us to hit the entire country in July, august and September with some of our favorite bands in the world. we sincerely regret not being able to play this years warped and apologize to anyone who was looking forward to seeing us on it but trust me this was out of our hands.
For now were preparing for GIAN Fest. in London and Birmingham, Bamboozled in NJ, Supersonic in Japan and a headlining run in May/June with Emanuel Fightstar and Firescape. This tour will rule and the tickets will be cheap! we love you forever and hope you accept our apologies about warped tour. xoxo
The band, initially formed in 2005, is made up of two twin brothers Nathan and Matthew Leone on vocals and bass guitar respectively, teamed with Mateo Camargo on guitar and drummer Dan Torelli. Their music focuses on a fictional small American town. Their debut album "From Them, Through Us, To You" dropped on March 27th. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
