The Vans Warped Tour -- it's not just for skater punks and emo kids anymore. In recent years, the traveling festival has increasingly added some harder rocking bands and the Black Dahlia Murder have just been announced as participants in the 2013 trek.

As they've done in recent years, organizers for the festival are announcing a new batch of bands weekly until revealing the full lineup sometime next spring. The announcements are only a couple of weeks in at this point, but already the Black Dahlia Murder will join I See Stars, Like Moths to Flames and Stick to Your Guns as some of the hardest rocking acts the festival has seen.

Black Dahlia Murder vocalist Trevor Strnad says of their participation:

"We in the Black Dahlia Murder look forward to seeing you and your friend's fancy haircuts this summer at the Van's Warped Tour. I think it's safe to say that all of us in TBDM have attended this tour at various points and have fond memories of this great American punk rock freak show. This time, we shall be the freaks … the sore thumb poking at your eyeball. We are proud to be the fastest, craziest, and most evil band that has ever played Warped Tour … hundreds of bands will enter, one band will leave. Us. We will emerge from the rubble like the giant cockroach men we are. See ya this summer… let's get warped!!!"
