Keep your eyes on this lot.



Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman has picked out the bands on this year's line-up who he believes are destined for big things.

Representing the UK, he's picked out Boston Manor for their "aggressive pop-punk" and says, "They’re a little heavier than State Champs and The Story So Far, [but] I think they [will attract] fans of those bands."



He also praises Creeper for their success in the UK, "[but] it’s still early for them in the U.S".



Elsewhere, he highlights Jule Vera as ones to watch. 

[Singer Ansley Newman] has the potential to become a strong female voice, like Paramore’s Hayley [Williams] or Gwen Stefani.”



As well as approving of Sonic Boom Six's similarities to old punk bands such as The Clash and Selector.
