All hands on deck! Dawn your sailor caps and denim vests, 'cause our favorite underground rock 'n' rollers are prepping for a May tour and a limited edition 7" release. We're teaming up with Turbonegro for a live recording from their set at the House of Vans last August. Turbonegro Live from the House of Vans features two tracks – “Mister Sister” and “You Give Me Worms” and hits select Vans stores on May 10th.

You may have seen The Architects on the Vans Warped Tour stage in past years, or maybe you heard a few tracks on your friend's stereo, but one thing's for sure, it's been too long since they've released some new music. This time around, they're pulling a crazy comic book/album combo with their new project "Border Wars". It's a five-episode comic with a six-song CD to accompany each part. Rad? Rad. They're promisin' heroes, villains, and a whole lot of blood.

If we've got anything to say about it, music and skating make for the raddest of mashups. Metallica's Robert Trujillo talks about the collision of both worlds at the 2013 Orion Fest, where things are stepping up another notch this year. Why just have a vert ramp at a festival when you can have it attached to a stage instead? Watch bands shred as skaters tear up the 30-foot ramp. Yes. Please.
More shenanigans from Brian & Nick at the final day of Coachella weekend 1. Make sure to check out all of their photos from this weekend as they traded tons of Vans for food, sunscreen, and fake mustaches.
Here's some shots from Kathy, Amanda Rae, and Chris Duran to round out our weekend at Coachella. Even if we nearly got blown away by a killer dust storm on Sunday, the sunshine festival vibes are already calling us back for more.
Vagabonds Brian & Nick continued to barter their way through day 2 of Coachella, snagging themselves some coffee, sandwiches, and some pretty sweet spots for bands like The Wombats and 2 Chainz.
We brought Johnny Layton from our skate team out to Coachella this weekend. He's been sending us some shots from his cell phone all weekend while he's off wandering the field. Here's a roundup of some photos from Saturday's event.
Amanda Rae and Kathy are hanging out in the California desert at Coachella this weekend with some shots to share. Flower crowns and tons of color to get it started off right. Read about all their adventures for the weekend at vansmusic.tumblr.com
