The B Foundation gets Warped

With the first round of band announcements for 2010 it was puzzling to see no reggae rock bands featured in the line-up! Now what will hopefully be the first of many, The B Foundation has been added to selected Warped Tour Dates.

Ian McGrath drummer for The B Foundation tells The Pier, “We are stoked about becoming a part of Vans Warped Tour history because it is the most iconic music festival that has done so much to link lifestyle with music and extreme sports, and some of the biggest bands in the world have been a part of it. It is great to become part of the Warped Tour legacy. I’m looking forward to meeting tons of new musicians and fans, and growing The B Foundation family.”

Interview: The Expendables

Almost three years ago, The Expendables were one of the first bands I ever interviewed for The Pier. At the time this Santa Cruz outfit was touring the country in a van with a trailer. Now I am standing out the front of a huge tour bus about to go on and catch up with the guys. Looking at the bus I am just so stoked by how far they have come. Playing huge professional tours like with 311 last year and headlining its own big tours like this Winter Blackout Tour.

I jump on-board and am immediately greeted by a very naked guitarist – Raul Bianchi. Raul is sitting casually like he isn’t the only naked person in the room. I am sure my reaction was priceless. I wish I could do that in my day job!

Well, The Expendables may takes it musical career seriously, yet it is very cool to see the fellas still like to have fun. On with the interview.
