As promised… here is the second round of our PLAY Warped Tour winners! (You can find our announcement of the first 15 winners here).
After over 11,000 entries and months of voting, we are thrilled to present the next 10 winners (stay tuned to this blog for more winners to be announced). These bands will play the Vans Warped Tour mainstage in their respective cities and will be in the running to win our grand prize – $40,000+ in cash and prizes + a 3-song EP produced by Chad Gilbert of New Found Glory.
“Winning the Ernie Ball Warped Tour Battle of the Bands was one of the best things to ever happen to Nothing More. Believe it or not, the finals were actually Jonny’s first show as lead singer. And after a 1,000 shows, including several trips around the world, I’m still rocking the Musicman Bass that they gave me every single night.” – Nothing More bassist Daniel Oliver
