1e889b34-7e95-45cf-aa3a-3559b54a9ec7Yellowcard’s self-titled final album will be released via Hopeless Records tomorrow and the band will embark on ‘The Final World Tour’, kicking off in Texas on 6th of October and reaching Europe & the UK in December. The UK shows include a special exclusive performance of Yellowcard’s iconic album ‘Ocean Avenue’ in full at Leeds University Union on 20th of December.

‘Yellowcard’ was a very personal journey for the band that was self-produced by Ryan Key and guitarist Ryan Mendez with long-time ally and close friend Neal Avron close by as Executive Producer. A newly-revealed series of videos follows Key, Mendez, bassist Josh Portman and violinist Sean Mackin as they complete the recording of the album in Nashville, Tennessee. You can watch them here:

“The motivation behind this was to make sure these songs came from a place that was deeply rooted in us,” they explain about taking the reins and crafting it from top to bottom. “We wanted to push ourselves to create a lasting finale for this incredible story on our own. It is also why we chose to self-title the album. We were lucky to still have our friend and mentor, Neal Avron, on board as Executive Producer. We’ve made one of the strongest records of our career and a fitting final creative piece.”

“We will be forever grateful to Yellowcard fans all over the world for the opportunities you have given us. We have played shows for nearly two decades on six continents, and had the chance to keep recording the music we love year after year. While it is with sadness that we say goodbye, it is with gratitude and amazement that we look back on a career we can be proud of, and were so very lucky to have had.”
