Not everyday in your life are you going to wake up, the clouds are gonna part and the rays are gonna come down and you’re going to write a song from it. Sometimes you gotta just get in there and force yourself to work and maybe something good will come out of it.

Interview with Vanna (again!)- 7/6/14 @ Vans Warped Tour

Interview by Molly Louise Hudelson. Transcribed by Gabby Vice.

Vanna has been going non-stop. Just last month, they released their latest album Void via Pure Noise Records, and they’re spending yet another summer performing on the Vans Warped Tour.

Warped Tour is full of long drives and hot, sweaty days, but no matter what, you’ll always find Vanna going all-out for thirty minutes on the Monster Stage, and meeting as many fans as possible after their set and at their merch tent. The days can be busy but for Vanna, it seems that the conversations they have- whether in a small rock club or next to their tent on the Warped Tour grounds- fuel the intense energy of their live performance.

Earlier this month, the tour stopped in Holmdel, New Jersey at the PNC Bank Arts Center. I met up with lead vocalist Davey and guitarist/vocalist Joel for an interview that afternoon.

Read on for the interview, where we talked Warped Tour, Void, and what keeps them so level-headed! Be sure to check out our previous interviews with Vanna (March 2013 and December 2013).

That rock ‘n’roll, eh? That rock’n’roll, it just won’t go away. It might hibernate from time to time, and sink back into the swamp. I think the cyclical nature of the universe in which it exists demands it adheres to some of its rules.
But it’s always waiting there, just around the corner. Ready to make its way back through the sludge and smash through the glass ceiling, looking better than ever. Yeah, that rock’n’roll, it seems like it’s faded away sometimes, but it will never die. And there’s nothing you can do about it.
