ACIDIC band members include lead singer and guitarist Michael Gossard, drummer Matt Whitaker, guitarist/back-up vocalist Josh Bennett and bassist/back-up vocalist Max Myrick. They released their fourth full-length 10-track album Copper Man last year. The album was produced by John Ryan of Chicago Kid Productions. Other 2013 highlights included three tours with Hinder, two tours with Trapt, a sold-out summer Viper Room Los Angeles show, a star turn at Sunset Sessions Rock 2013, and a 60-city coast-to-coast tour with Smile Empty Soul. Officially confirming 2014 as their biggest year yet, ACIDIC kicked the year off with their first headlining run on the "Electric Cool-aid ACIDIC Tour" that rocked the Rockies and the Pacific Northwest in January and February.
The nationally-renowned Warped Tour is the most eclectic traveling tour and features a diverse array of artists--with hotly tipped acts in every genre from punk, metal and indie to rock, hip-hop, rap, electronic, reggae and pop; as well as a variety of lifestyle attractions for its traditionally low ticket price. The tour has cemented its place in history by bringing punk rock/skate/action sports culture from the underground to the forefront of global youth culture, while at the same time helping those in need and being the first tour to consistently use groundbreaking environmental concepts every year on the road. The Warped Eco Initiatives (WEI) focus on making the tour more environmentally friendly whether it is through eco conscious catering for the artists and crew courtesy of Tada Catering or a solar-powered sound system on the Kevin Says Stage. Further, www.vanswarpedtour.com even showcases public transportation options for every tour date and carpool social media apps as well as exotic eco travel contests.

Now in its 20th year, the 42-date tour will commence June 13 in Houston, TX and end on August 3 in Denver, CO.
