Our third bit of Warped Tour weirdness in the past few days as Bronx and Mariachi el Bronx drummer Jorma Vik called out Warped headlining act, Black Veil Brides for using potemkin (i.e. fake) amplifiers during their set. The drummer posted pictures of the hollow amplifiers along with a caption:
A friend of mine took this photo at warped tour. This is what the kids are calling "rock n roll" these days. I'm lighting fire to every drum I have and becoming an investment banker.
Black Veil Brides vocalist Andy Biersack defended this practice with this not-really-an-explanation:
We use staging in our stage show. Also these are tattoos, I wasn't born with the batman logo on my arm.
