Sunday Slaylist: Warped Tour UK 2012 Endurance Test

Yesterday the Vans Warped Tour made its first return to London since 1999. We didn’t go. We do know some people who did go, and their reactions on Twitter ranged from “Oh my God! Onesies everywhere!” to “Lasted just an hour at Warped”. We know that (some) of us here at Thrash Hits have a reputation as being surly No Fun Club-types, but by gosh, did we not see this as a challenge to make a listenable Sunday Spotify Slaylist about it.

Thrash Hits verdict: People often claim that we’re elitist dickbags here at Thrash Hits. That’s kind of true – after all, life’s too short to listen to average music, let alone bad music. If being “elitish dickbags” means we listen to less bad and average music, so much the better. However, we are trying to cover all sides of the heavy music spectrum here at Thrash Hits, so when someone dropped us an email about rising UK metalcore types, With One Last Breath, we took it upon ourselves to look past their range of youthful fringes and colourful t-shirt collections and actually listen to their music.
