In 2011 Vans OTW and The Blackouts (Ako and Atiba Jefferson) set out to create a free reggae compilation featuring music from VP Record's vast catalog of artists. VP Records houses the best in reggae and dance hall music and Ako and Atiba spent weeks carefully selecting each artist for this vinyl compilation. Once the tracks were chosen, the advocates and Vans set out for Jamaica to finalize the project. In Kingston and Trench Town, The Blackouts were able to walk the steps of Bob Marley and Peter Tosh. Each photo in the gatefold of this special edition album documents the trip to the magical island of Jamaica.
Check out the hype surrounding the release of No Room For Rockstars! The Vans Warped tour documentary produced by Stacy Peralta will be released on Itunes April 2nd and DVD on May 15th as a DVD and solid CD with some of the most influential punk bands that played Warped.
