By Tom Aylott


Despite having a really bad name and some distracting fringes, Taking Hayley have emerged as victors of the Ernie Ball Battle Of The Bands competition to play Vans Warped Tour UK.

The band will join the likes of Lostprophets, Bring Me The Horizon, Less Than Jake and New Found Glory next weekend in London, and a message on the Warped Tour UK website said the following about their victory:

“Congratulations to TAKING HAYLEY who are our Earnie Ball Battle Of The Bands winner! You can catch them on the Kevin Says Stage at the Sold Out Vans Warped Tour UK in London on Saturday 10th November. Thanks to all the bands who took part in the contest, the competition was fierce and it was a tough decision for the Judges.

Fresh from supporting Mindless Self Indulgence and with a live performance jam packed with high energy riffs and powerful emotional vocals described as “fit for Wembely Arena“, Taking hayley cap a fine 2012 at Warped UK. Fans of Paramore, You Me At Six and All Time Low will want to catch these guys out.
Check out next week’s Kerrang Magazine to find out who the final band to be added to the UK line up will be! Out Wednesday 7th November.”

Also, you can still vote for a rare Lostprophets song to add to their set to benefit Teenage Cancer Trust, so PLEASE get involved!

One final band will be added to the bill this Wednesday.
