December 10, Nashville, TN - At 4 PM PST today, the Vans Warped Tour, America's longest running festival concert tour, revealed the second wave of artists appearing on the 2015 tour. Alternative pop/rock band, Family Force 5, will be among the Main Stage performers for the 21st annual tour, which launches June 9 and runs through August 8, 2015 (dates subject to change), marking the band's fourth tour appearance. Click HERE for dates and ticket information.

With a reach of more than 500,000 fans every summer, the Warped Tour will be the second major tour on Family Force 5's calendar in 2015. In January, they will begin a 47-city-run with Winter Jam 2015, which Pollstar has named the #1 most-attended tour world-wide in the first quarter for the past four years.

Following the announcement, the Warped Tour website launched an exclusive 24-hour premiere of Family Force 5's latest, highly anticipated music video, "Sweep the Leg." It's the second music video from Time Stands Still, their critically acclaimed album that shot to the top of multiple album charts when it debuted Aug. 5 from Word Entertainment, follows the impressive performance of the first, "BZRK (feat. KB)," which became the No. 1 most-viewed music video at MTV.com.

As 2014 draws to an end, the band is capping off what is indisputably one of the most successful years in their 20-year tenure with the release of their electronic/dance/pop version of "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen." This, in addition to today's announcement, their first Hot AC/CHR No. 1 radio hit, "Let It Be Love," and coming in as the #14 most-played artist on Billboard's Hot AC/CHR chart in 2014, posits Family Force 5 to enter 2015 on a career high.
