Greetings from Portland International Airport!


Since our last update, we traveled back up the East Coast, across North Dakota and Montana and in to the Northwest, providing us with an epic end to this tour. We had a blast with our Tilly’s crew in St. Pete and got to enjoy a beautiful venue right next to the ocean. The next day in North Carolina put us back in a gravel parking lot, making our Tilly’s bandanas a necessary accessory for all the kids there. Man Overboard stopped by to sign with us that day and spent over an hour hanging out with fans and taking photos.

 

Those guys are some of the best we’ve met this summer so if you haven’t yet, make sure you check them out!


Cincinnati kept us busy with three signings and a ton of fans at the Tilly’s tent. Polar Bear Club, Four Year Strong and A Loss for Words were so great to work with all summer and we’re glad we had the chance to get to know them. Milwaukee turned out to be the most receptive city to everything Tilly’s had to offer and we were so pumped to be there. It was a beautiful day and the line at our tent seemed to be never ending. Big thanks to Lostprophets for adding to the incredibly positive vibe that day – it was awesome.


We spent the following two days traveling from Wisconsin to Washington and got to take in some of the most beautiful sites this country has to offer. On our days off it was little things like that that helped us keep it moving to the next city and we’re so thankful for everything we got to see and experience. Our show day in Seattle was surprisingly hot and we had Chasing Vegas play an acoustic set in our tent. So many of their fans turned up to watch and sing along and it was super exciting for us to be a part of it.


Portland brought us a wonderful final day of the tour, despite being forced to cancel our signing with Tonight Alive (due to the fire marshal’s request). That band is so talented and we’re so excited to see what they’ve got in store for the future. Our local Tilly’s staff for the day were the best group of people we could’ve asked for to help spread the Tilly’s love. Major thanks to every Tilly’s store employee who helped us out this summer – you were such a blessing to us and we couldn’t have done any of this without you.


We can’t believe how quickly these past 7 weeks have passed us by but now it’s time to say goodbye to the Vans Warped Tour 2012. We met some of the most incredible people ever on this tour and will dearly miss all of them, but we are so grateful for the memories we've made with all of you at every show. Thank you isn’t enough, so make sure you keep an eye out to find out how you can enter to win Green Machine and White Lightning, the skateboard decks we had signed by every band possible this summer, including Taking Back Sunday, All Time Low, Motionless in White, Pierce the Veil, New Found Glory and so many more. 


It’s been an inexplicably beautiful summer and we can’t wait to see you all again next time. Until then, keep rocking and make some noise!


Morgan and Tomer
