With a 1955 VW Marley bus stocked with Marley headphones and a summer’s worth of sunscreen, the House of Marley’s Chris Hurley will be giving us a behind-the-scenes look at life On the Road with the 2012 Vans Warped Tour.
July 7 • Tinley Park, IL
Today we were just outside of Chicago in Tinley Park, Illinois. Chicago always has, and always will be a great American music city. We were so busy today that I am just now writing this from my bunk at 11:55 pm. In fact, we’re already driving to tomorrow’ show.
Today was a blur, but one band that stood out was The Green. They played an amazing set. Check them out. They’re from the 808 state of Hawaii and one of our favorites on the 2012 Vans Warped Tour House of Marley stage.
July 9 • Bonner Springs, KS
We’re in the heart of Midwest, USA today! Craig and I just got done throwing the football around with a few members of Ballyhoo!, Taylor just finished up her daily Yoga session, and now all of us are ready to begin spreading the good word about the House of Marley’s world class on-ear, in-ear and over-ear headphones. One thing I’ve noticed about the Midwest: people out here really do appreciate the eco-friendly side of our products. Pumped to keep making impressions everywhere we can!
July 11 • Cuyahoga Falls, OH
Today is another beautiful day for a rock show! All the trees and vegetation here in Ohio are so green and lush. Although it’s pretty hot and sweaty, I can’t complain because one of the most beautiful girls I’ve ever seen is selling bottled water in front of our stage all day long… I think I’m going to go over there and tell her all about “one love,” if you know what I mean.

Ran into a few of the guys from All Time Low yesterday at our nightly backstage barbecue. Really cool and friendly guys. I started to tell them to come check out the House of Marley VW bus sometime, but before I could even finish, they insisted that all the House of Marley people come down to their set today, so that’s what we’re on the way to do now!
In addition, we have a really cool band joining the House of Marley stage… Say hello to Lost Prophets! Today is their first day on the 2012 Vans Warped Tour, and they deserve a warm welcome considering they came all the way from the UK!
July 13 • Holmdel, NJ
Today was a BIG day! So big, in fact, that its the largest single day in Warped Tour history! A total of 113 bands performed today, which is the most bands to have ever taken the stage in one day in the full 18 years of the Vans Warped Tour. In the midst of all the craziness, Justin from Anti-Flag ended up hanging with us on our bus after their set, pumped on his new pair of Zion Midnight in-ear headphones!
