Yellowcard Working On Eleventh Studio Album

A few days ago during an interview with OC Weekly, Yellowcard vocalist Ryan Key confirmed that the outfit has began writing what will be their eleventh full-length as a band.

According to Key, this forthcoming effort, which presently lacks a title and release date, may well be the group’s most grandiose to date:

“I’ve written more than I usually do at this stage…everyone in the band is really spread out geographically right now. Usually, Ryan, Sean and I start writing together early on, but that’s kind of hard to do this time. We’ve talked a lot about it though, and the general consensus is we want it to be really big sounding. We want to open it up big and wide. Songs that we reference are “Be The Young” and “Only One,” so more stuff like that maybe…Also, I’m not sure where I’m going to go lyrically with it, but going through this insane personal experience, I’ve got some big, anthemic things to say, I think. In my mind, it doesn’t necessarily warrant a punk rock record or a pop punk record, but we’re going to see where it takes us.”

2013 proved to be a successful year for the Jacksonville quintet, who celebrated the ten-year anniversary of their breakout album, Ocean Avenue, by re-recording an entirely acoustic version of the LP, and taking it on the road across the country. If you’re feeling nostalgic, you can check out the most recent additions to said tour here.

As mentioned, this upcoming release will be the group’s eleventh full-length album to date, and act as a follow-up to 2012’s Southern Air, which dropped via Hopeless Records and was well-received by both critics and fans alike. You can check out my favorite track from that album, “Awakening,” below.
