Yesterday was the ten year anniversary of Yellowcard's breakthrough album, Ocean Avenue. On August 13th, the band will be releasing a special acoustic album featuring all thirteen Ocean Avenue tracks. Today, we're premiering the first video from Ocean Avenue Acoustic of the song that changed everything for the band - "Ocean Avenue." I've been listening to the acoustic album for a little while now and each song is incredibly well-done, with this track being one of the standouts. You can also pre-order Ocean Avenue Acoustic on iTunes for only $7.99 and it comes with an instant download of this song. If you're a vinyl guy like me, you can also pick this up on wax here.

We have a special mini-podcast going live today. Last year (actually just about exactly a year ago), Jason did a phone interview with Ryan Key of Yellowcard, but due to some unforeseen circumstances occurring practically simultaneously the interview was never transcribed and released.

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,...
At Yellowcard's show in Fargo this past Sunday, Ryan Key said that whatever they do for Ocean Avenue's 10th anniversary would be "much more than a tour." Any ideas what they could be up to? Maybe a 10th anniversary re-release?

So I received a package from Hopeless Records this morning and in it was a bunch of swag from the bands on their roster. One of the items included was a LP of Yellowcard's new album Southern Air, which I've decided to give away today. How do you win this beautiful 12 inches of wax? It's simple: just like and follow us on our Facebook and Twitter pages (as well as Hopeless' Facebook and Twitter) and tell us what your favorite song is off Southern Air and why (either in this thread, on Twitter, or on Facebook). I'll pick a winner sometime tomorrow. Good luck!
Edit: The chat is now over. Thanks a lot to the band for spending over an hour answering questions. Be sure to check out Southern Air tomorrow and Yellowcard's tour this fall with The Wonder Years and We Are The In Crowd.
Yellowcard will be chatting in this thread at 1pm (PST) today. They'll have blue names and you can join them by heading to the replies and posting questions, comments, etc. The band's great new album, Southern Air, hits stores tomorrow. Make sure you've pre-ordered on iTunes as I'd love to see these guys hit the top 10. Also, don't forget they're heading out on tour soon - so, you can check out all the dates and get tickets, here.
