Simple Plan guitarist Jeff Stinco tells Jason Bracelin of the Cleveland Scene that landing a prime spot on the Warped Tour was a great coup for the group. “It’s been an important tour for us, ever since it started,” Stinco said. “Three years ago, we started playing the tour. We started with two dates, then eventually graduated to a week and a half, and now we’re doing the whole summer. I think people associate us with the tour more and more. It’s important for us, because it helps us reach people who do the same kind of music that we do. Warped has never tried to be something that it’s not. It’s the same formula, people know what to expect, and they know that they’ll hear good music year after year.” Read more.
