    11 Pop-Punk Tours To Catch In Summer 2016

    Summer is synonymous with pop-punk. Bouncy guitar chords are the perfect soundtrack for a day at the beach, a cookout or afternoon by the pool. And with so many bands making comebacks, this summer is loaded with shows to catch. Here are the top 11.

    blink-182, A Day To Remember, All Time Low, All-American Rejects

    A massive tour that blends genre legends with the current flag bearers. The four bands have combined to produce 13 chart-topping songs and sell out countless stadiums. They are also the voices of two different generations. Plus, Blink and ADTR will be pushing new albums while All-American Rejects hasn’t toured since 2003. Expect colossal crowds.

    Taste of Chaos with Dashboard Confessional, Taking Back Sunday, Saosin

    The Taste of Chaos tour regularly pairs the perfect combination of bands, and this year is no different. Dashboard Confessional and Taking Back Sunday both blossomed around the same time, with the former maybe earning more main stream clout. Either way, they’re both giants. Bands like The Starting Line and Saves The Day will make spot appearances, adding to an already stacked tour.

    Panic! At The Disco, Weezer, Andrew McMahon and the Wilderness

    Panic! and Weezer in one place! Nothing else needs to said. Brendon Urie is getting tight with friend Rivers Cuomo throughout the summer and each show is bound to be a blast. Plus, Andrew McMahon’s new band is just wonderful. It’ll be like three peas in a pod.

    Warped Tour

    It’s loaded this year. At least a dozen of the elite pop-punkers will be out there, including Sum 41. Warped Tour is usually a solid ticket, but melting the soles of your shoes on blistering hot pavement in some amphitheater parking lot in the middle of July has never been more worth it.

    Boys Like Girls

    You have no excuse not to see a Boys Like Girls performance if you live on the East coast. The guys are making ten, short stops as part of their self-tiled CD’s reunion tour in August. The future of the band is kinda’ up in the air, so you don’t want to miss your chance to see them while you still can.

    Motion City Soundtrack

    They’re saying goodbye to fans with one final trip around the country. Known for their goofy yet often times introspective lyrics, the fuzzy-haired fivesome will cease to exist this time next year. Bring a tissue to these shows- so long won’t be easy.

    Brand New, Modest Mouse

    Modest Mouse isn’t exactly pop-punk, but this combination with Brand New makes for an epic, can’t miss tour. Brand New is also saying their slow goodbyes; they’re disbanding in 2018.

    Lit, Everclear, Sugar Ray

    I can hear the intro to “My Own Worst Enemy” playing in your head right now. Lit is teaming up with a couple 90s throwbacks (Everclear probably inspired half the bands on this list) for a tour that’s making stops in some smaller towns. A pop-punk pioneer, you know Lit is going to bring it.

    Simple Plan

    Their newest album Taking One For The Team kinda flopped. But our friends north of the border still shred and will be splitting their summer between Canada and the U.S.

    Modern Baseball

    With most of their friends on Warped Tour, it was a bit of a surprise to see Modern Baseball take on their own tour. The band has stagnated a bit since it broke onto the scene in 2011. But their newest album, Holy Ghost, is doing well. Expect them to push it heavily this summer.

    Five Seconds Of Summer

    We'll, they're technically pop punk.
