Vans Warped Tour Australia 2013 Interviews: Man Overboard
New Jersey pop punk ensemble Man Overboard have been garnering rave reviews for their appearances at Vans Warped Tour Australia 2013 so far, and while hanging out at Barangaroo during the event’s Sydney leg, we caught up with their bassist/vocalist Nik Bruzzese.
Nik praised the atmosphere of the first Australian Warped in 11 years and the first visit from Man Overboard in just two years. “We gotta wake [the fans] up, man, it’s Warped Tour…it’s been 11 years and on the American Warped Tour you get used to waking kids up,” he said.
“You vibe off them,” he continued, “if you start to get them amped, then we get more amped, and then they get more amped and just go back and forth. It’s a cool little game we play,” explaining that the band’s newer material from recent album Heart Attack has been getting a good response.
