Josh Portman is New Bassist for Yellowcard

Posted by: Jason Tate (02/17/12)
Josh Portman will be new bassist for Yellowcard. Welcome!
Message from the BandHello friends. As you may know, Sean O’Donnell has decided to leave Yellowcard due to personal reasons. You can read a message from him written to you all here. We are all sad to see him go, but we completely understand his need to make this incredibly difficult decision.

With that said, we are stoked to let you know who will be filling the spot at bass guitar from here out. Please welcome Josh Portman to the family. Josh has been a close friend of ours for several years and he is more than excited to start getting to know you all. Feel free to send him a message saying hello on Twitter @joshportman or via email at josh@yellowcardrock.com

We know all of this news is a lot to take in but in the end it is the best thing for all of us. We wish Sean the best with all his future musical endeavors and can’t wait for you all to meet our buddy Josh.

Thanks,
-Ryan, Sean, Longineu, and Ryan

Just hope he doesn't turn out to be the Dolores Umbridge of the set...

I wonder if there is a Vegas bet line on how long this bassist will last. Over or under - 2 years. Any takers?

Glad to see them bring in somebody that is already familiar with the band and touring with them. Sean seemed to work pretty well with Ryan, so hopefully Josh can bring something to the table in the studio as well.

Figured he was the most realistic replacement...can't lie and say I wasn't holding out hope for Alex Lewis, though, haha.

Have the guys already started recording the new LP? And if so, will Josh rerecord the bass parts?

Toured with the band in 2007 and did an acoustic recording with them. Friend of the band already like Sean was when he joined. I would be excited if were you.
