Pro-skater and East Coast rebel punk-poet Mike Vallely will once again be playing a duel role on the Vans Warped Tour ’08 this summer. Vallely, a.k.a Mike V, front man for punk band Revolution Mother and the star of the FUEL TV series “DRIVE,” will not only be bringing his intense, passionate and diverse skate style to the tour for the second year but Mike’s band Revolution Mother, the hard rocking outlaw punk band will perform their explosive set that they have become known for leaving both fans and critics begging for more.  Revolution Mother’s debut CD GLORY BOUND is out now.
 
Showing no signs of slowing down, Mike V can now add film actor to his growing resume, recently cast in Columbia Pictures/Happy Madison Production’s upcoming feature film UNTITLED KEVIN JAMES COMEDY which began shooting in March 2008 in Boston and Burlington, MA.  The film is due out January 2009. 
 
“A metal-edged skatepunk band led by singer and professional boarder Mike Vallely, Revolution Mother are basically the entire aesthetic of the Vans Warped Tour in human personification. Their debut album is as much a lifestyle accessory as it is a collection of songs…current punk mores and unapologetic vintage metal influences”–All Music Guide
 
 
“Warped Tour is the perfect venue for me and the band. Getting to skate and rock everyday is what it’s all about for me and I look forward to another summer of rocking and rolling.”– Mike V
 
Mike V is also back on the road in his third season of the skateboarding series “DRIVE,” airing on FUEL TV starting August 17, at 8:00PM ET/PT. Based on the award-winning documentary film of the same name, “DRIVE” hits the pavement with the professional skateboarder as he travels the world exploring the people, places, and issues defining skateboarding and youth culture today.  Look for the third season to reach new heights as Mike V takes you on a journey into the street war of Brazil’s “City of God” to be the first to document their hidden skateboard culture.
