LOS ANGELES, June 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sanctiond, the premier car care brand founded by cultural icon, legendary tattoo artist and custom car collector, Mister Cartoon, has just partnered with Rockford Fosgate, the industry leader in high-performance car audio systems to participate in Vans Warped Tour's 41 dates in 41 cities, beginning this month.

Rockford Fosgate will display its Pressure Chamber Sound Lab demonstration vehicle, which concert attendees can take a ride in, while enjoying live demonstrations by Sanctiond on how to keep their cars as hot as their sound system. "This will be our first nationwide interactive showcase of our signature lineup of car care products," says Sanctiond president and CEO Atticus Firey.

"The demographic that all three of us attract are one in the same," says Bill Jackson, Rockford Fosgate president and CEO. "We couldn't be more excited to partner with Sanctiond and the 2012 Vans Warped Tour to bring both our cultures on tour with great bands and activities that mirror both ours and Sanctiond's fanatic lifestyle."

Rockford Fosgate and Sanctiond have also launched a special social media promo, featuring a $25,000 grand prize, entry tickets to the tour, gift packs and exclusive promotional items that will conclude on August 5, 2012. Eligible consumers must "Like" Rockford Fosgate's Facebook fan page to be entered to win two entry tickets to the Vans Warped Tour event in the venue of their choice as well as a Sanctiond Automotive Premium Car Care Kit gift bag worth $150. Participants who visit the Sound Lab's demonstration vehicle will receive a redemption certificate to bring to their local participating Rockford Fosgate dealer for a chance to win the $25,000 grand prize or other cash prizes.

"Music is as important to a car as its paint," says Mister Cartoon, Founder of Sanctiond. "My art, tattoos, and the way I design cars are all inspired by music. It's important to me that Sanctiond partners with companies that share our lifestyle and recognize the connection between technology and art like Rockford Fosgate and the Vans Warped Tour."
