Thelineup for the 2010 Vans Warped Tour
was announced a little while back, and, silly us, we forgot to tell you that four bands with area ties are on the bill that'll visit the Superpages.com Center on Saturday, July 3:The Rocket Summer
,Artist Vs. Poet
(who released its full-length debut,Favorite Fix
, on Fearless Records earlier this week),Disco Curtis
and the Austin-based Denton ex-pats inThe Riverboat Gamblers
It's that last group that brings us to today's posting, though: Yesterday, via the Warped Tour site, the band debuted the above video, the third single off its Underneath the Owl album. It's a pretty sweet clip, too, all animated and whatnot. Check it out. And, if you like this slower-paced fare from the band, well, you can get this song for free for a limited time, too--just by giving the Warped Tour people your email address in return, if you dare.
Again, I'll say this about the song: No band does backing screams of "Hey!" "Woah!" and "Oh!" better than the Gamblers. Just a fact.
