Man Overboard are torchbearers for the brand of pop punk popularized by Blink-182 and Saves the Day, entertaining fans with their high-octane live shows and shielding the genre against critics with their trademark motto "Defend Pop Punk." Veterans of the Vans Warped Tour and the Pop Punk's Not Dead Tour, the band are seasoned performers, consistently thrilling fans with their tight playing and buoyant setlists. Back on the road, the band will treat fans to electrifying renditions of favorites like "Dahlia" and "Dead End Dreams" at their upcoming tour dates.
Childhood friends Nik Bruzzese and Wayne WildriMan formed Man Overboard in New Jersey in 2008, taking band's moniker from a Blink-182 song of the same name. They released their debut EP the same year, going on a nationwide tour in support of the release shortly thereafter. Following several more small releases, the band made their album debut in 2010 with Real Talk, a huge critical success that sparked additional touring and landed them a deal with Rise Records. They released their self-titled sophomore album on the label in 2011, reaching the Billboard 200 for the first time and landing a spot on the Pop Punk's Not Dead Tour. Following several lineup changes the band wowed fans on the 2013 Vans Warped Tour, paving the way for their third full-length album Heart Attack and continued nationwide touring.
