Armor For Sleep reuniting for Bamboozle 2012

Armor For Sleep

Armor For Sleep will reunite for a one-off appearance at Bamboozle. The reunion news was revealed via a letter frontman Ben Jorgenson sent to the long-running festival, which will return to it's original location in Asbury Park. You can read the full statement over at Boozle's official Facebook page. Excerpt below.

To me, the need to bring back Armor for Sleep for some kind of reunion or farewell shows was never really something I was dying to do. Walking away from it was hard enough so entering that whole world again seemed easier just not to think about. But then I got to talking to Tone about Bamboozle. Bamboozle was in many ways our birthplace. It was the first time promoters gave us a chance to showcase who we were. We started building our fan-base there and we owe a lot of the success we had to Bamboozle (and Skate and Surf) for giving us a chance at the beginning. 

AFS will join: Brand New, Foo Fighters, Skrillex, Blink-182, Motion City Soundtrack, Kreayshawn, The Receiving End of Sirens (reunion), Jimmy Eat World, DJ Pauly D, The Maine, The Wonder Years, Hot Water Music, Anti-Flag and many many more.
