Yellowcard Announce LAST EVER Australian Tour Dates
It’s the eeeend of the woooooorld as we know it… That’s not even a Yellowcard song, but it’s relevant – the Floridian pop-punk powerhouse recently announced that, following the release of their eponymous tenth LP this September, they would pack up their gear, pawn off their merch, leave this town and run forever (sorry, we had to).
Alongside the release of a (fitting) new single, “Rest In Peace”, the band posted on their website a somewhat unexpected message last week: “After countless discussions and months of thought, we have decided that it is time for Yellowcard to come to an end… We considered so many things – our families, our health, our future endeavors. In the end we realized that this was the right time to step away and preserve the legacy and integrity of the band.”
As you could imagine, we’re all pretty much just swimming in tears here at BLUNT HQ. But, it’s not all sad times – the band have today announced one last jaunt on Australian shores; they’ll be trekking down next February for a 5-date run of shows, hitting Perth, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Melbourne with all the feels.
Alongside cuts from the forthcoming self-titled record, expect plenty of classic jams from Yellowcard’s enormous twenty-year discography. We’ll be the ones making way too much of a scene when they come out with “Ocean Avenue”.
Yellowcard last toured Down Under in 2015 alongside Tallahassee scene-stealers Mayday Parade (who are also touring this year). For this run, the boys recruited Swedish metalcore unit Like Torches, who are making their Aussie debut with this run. Yellowcard’s Ryan Key features on their track “Missing It All”, so it’s safe to assume we’ll see some set-crashing as well.
