UTG TV: Warped 2014 With Yellowcard

“I hope that somewhere, whoever is sitting in an office, looking at the internet and counting his money, that he decides that this is a good year for a new Yellowcard record.” It’s hard to believe that Yellowcard released their classic record Ocean Avenue a decade ago.

Wrongdoers, the follow-up to the highly acclaimed 2010 release, Meridional, is an emotional ride of escalating proportions, […]
