The band has since become the most visually-captivating group in modern rock, playing for millions of fans around the world, sharing the stage with Ozzy OsbourneHalestormNine Inch Nails, Escape The Fate, Hellyeah and Five Finger Death Punch while also headlining the longest-running touring festival, Vans Warped Tour, in 2017.
