SHATTERED SUN vocalist Marcos Leal states, “We are extremely excited to be a part of this year’s Vans Warped Tour and its phenomenal line up! We’ve shared so many great memories at VWT over the years – from passing out from the heat in San Antonio, to rocking out to August Burns Red, to crowd surfing during A Day To Remember – we can’t wait to bring our style of Texas Metal to this year’s line up and show people our new music! Be on the lookout because the Texas RAGERS are coming. See you in the pit!”
Guitarist Jessie Santos adds, “I’m stoked as hell to perform at this year’s Vans Warped Tour. Having toured with a summer festival a few years back (Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival), I know this tour will be a banger every single day. Come out and jam with us this summer!”
The Vans Warped Tour is well known as America’s longest running touring music festival of the summer. Since 1995, the tour has been a showcase for both established and up and coming talent, across a wide range of eclectic sub-genres. The tour has also cemented its place in history by bringing alternative rock and skate culture from the underground to the forefront of global youth culture, while at the same time helping those in need through non-profit and eco initiatives.
On Saturday, April 15, make sure to catch SHATTERED SUN at Texas Independence Fest 2017 in Austin, TX at Grizzly Hall. Doors open at 12:00pm and the event is all ages. Other artists performing include Anthrax, Killswitch Engage, The Devil Wears Prada, Oh, Sleeper and many others. Visit this link for tickets.
SHATTERED SUN is a remarkable example of hard work and determination, coming a long way from their industrious origins. SHATTERED SUN echo the roots of Southern Texas, reflected on their debut album Hope Within Hatred, available in-stores and online at iTunes, Amazon Music, FYE, Hastings, and wherever digital music is sold. Upon release, Hope Within Hatred debuted at #1 on the CMJ Loud Rock charts, as well as within the Top 20 on the iTunes Metal chart and Top 50 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. Even as a young band, SHATTERED SUN have proven their prowess in the touring scene by first supporting Testament and Exodus on their national tour in 2015 (which included stops at Welcome To Rockville Festival and New England Metal & Hardcore Festival), and continuing on that summer as an official Victory Records Stage artist on the final Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival run.
SHATTERED SUN are currently working on new music, scheduled to release this year.
