Yellowcard has officially announced its new album will be titled Southern Air and we can confirm it will be released on August 14. Check out a blog from Ryan Key below.
Blog from Ryan KeyWhen Yellowcard decided to take a break in 2008, I had never felt so uncertain about my future. I decided the best thing for me to do was leave Los Angeles and relocate to the East coast to be closer to my family. I landed in a small college town in Northeast Georgia called Athens. It was such a crucial and developmental chapter in my life for which I will be forever grateful.

Stick To Your Guns' Jesse Barnett has started a Kickstarter to fund a solo acoustic album of 8-10 songs. He's looking for $2,000 to get the project underway.
From the KickstarterI am really looking forward to this because these songs will be entirely mine with no one else’s input. It will be a chance for me to step outside of what I am normally used to and allow me the opportunity to do anything that I damn well please. I have had an overwhelming amount of emails and tweets of people asking me to do an acoustic album. If i can get the money raised, I will go into the studio in july and record an album of 8 - 10 original songs.
