Vans Warped Tour Australia 2013 Interviews: Crown The Empire
As Vans Warped Tour Australia 2013 came barreling through Sydney like the juggernaut event that it is, Music Feeds was at Barangaroo to steal some time from some of the bands, including a chat with Andrew Velasquez and David Escamilla from Texas metalcore troupe Crown The Empire.
Warped marks the band’s first trip to Australia and Andrew and Dave were glad to report that the Australian crowds have “exceeded” the band’s expectations. Andrew elaborated on the difference between Warped AU and US, saying, “I feel like it’s a little bit more personal here…more intimate.”
The guys also shared some of their favourite acts on this year’s Warped Tour bill, showing love for The Used, touring buddies We Came As Romans, who’ve been showing the boys around Australia, as well as Aussies Hands Like Houses, with Andrew saying, “We love ’em, we love those guys!”
