Lead singer Jaret remembers "Last year we went on Warped Tour not knowing what to expect. We learned quickly that it is a HOT, long ridiculously tiring tour and that if we were going to survive, we would need a lot of beer and would learn to go five days without showering ... I can't wait to do it again!"

Bowling For Soup are: Jaret, vocals; Chris, guitar; Erik, Bass and Gary, drums.
