Carnifex Rumored For 2017 ‘Vans Warped Tour’


It looks to be a safe bet that Carnifex will be appearing on this summer’s ‘Vans Warped Tour‘ run. The band’s manager Mike Mowery had the following to say on a recent episode of the ‘Manage Mental‘ podcast [see below,] which he co-hosts with manager/Ozzy Osbourne, etc. bassist Blasko. Mowery said during the chat:

“Take a death metal band for instance, Carnifex is a great example. They’ve been in this really deathcore milieu and they’re wanting to move into the accessible metal realm. They wanted to get on ‘Warped Tour‘. Lo and behold—I guess I can’t announce anything—but we’ll say maybe they’ll be on ‘Warped Tour‘ this summer.”
