Nearly 10 summers ago, Yellowcard released its most successful album to date, Ocean Avenue. It's arguably the band's most popular album amongst fans as well, with hits like "Way Away," "Only One," "Breathing," and the title track continuing to be essential pieces in the band's history. To commemorate this release, Hopeless Records will be releasing Ocean Avenue Acoustic on August 13th (which you can pre-order here as well as check out the band's summer tour dates) and you can exclusively view the artwork and album trailer in the replies.
You may notice that the site looks a bit different today (or soon will be) and that's because we are going to be rolling out the red - err, yellow carpet for this release leading up to its release. Today, we're opening up the discussion for fans to speculate what the acoustic album will sound like, how the songs will be interpreted, etc. We can also talk about what our favorite songs are from Ocean Avenue. Do you think some songs will sound better acoustically than electronically, or vice versa? Or maybe there was a song you disliked on Ocean Avenue - do you think the acoustic rendition will make you reconsider?
