Animal Style Records owner Matt Medina got married last month and made a 7" consisting of four cover songs to commemorate the occasion. Now, that 7" is available on Bandcamp for $4, and all proceeds will go to FreedomToMarry.org.
We got married on January 19, 2014, and with the help of our friends in Mixtapes, Born Without Bones, We Are the Union and Wolves at Bay, we released a 7" to commemorate the occasion. We feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to celebrate our marriage with our family and friends, but we recognize that not everyone in our country is so fortunate. We want to make the songs available to a larger audience and donate the proceeds to freedomtomarry.org...

Read my review and take a look at my photos of Yellowcard's Ocean Avenue Acoustic Tour with What's Eating Gilbert in Providence, RI on February 1.
More than a decade after singing "I've made it this far now / And I'm not burning out" in "Way Away," Key and his bandmates are standing by those words. Yellowcard has run the gamut of highs and lows since Ocean Avenue's release; to see so many people continue to care after after all this time is further proof of the band's resiliency.
