Welcome back to another round of the AP.net Roundtable - an article revolving around a much-anticipated album and the discussion it inspires amongst a handful of staff members. Today's roundtable article features Jason Tate, Craig Manning, Ryan Gardner, Cody Nelson and myself discussing Yellowcard's latest release, Ocean Avenue Acoustic. Throughout the discussion we touched on which renditions were executed the best, favorite moments on the release, and why this album has affected so many pop-punk fans. So pick up your copy of Ocean Avenue Acoustic, put the needle down, and check out the latest AP.net Roundtable discussion in the replies.
Yellowcard's Ocean Avenue Acoustic is available today. Last week, a stream of the entire album premiered at Pandora and on YouTube, so you had a week to really get into the release before picking it up today. Thomas also wrote a review on the record and we will be posting a roundtable discussion on the release later this week. What are your favorite renditions? Did YC knock it out of the park or do you think it could have been better? Share your thoughts on the release in the replies. You can also download it on iTunes or Amazon. The band is also heading out on the road soon to promote this release and you can check out the dates and buy tickets here.
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. The band is...
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. Now that we have this podcast, we figured this would be a really good way to release the audio from this interview. The quality isn’t as good as the previous podcasts, as it wasn’t recorded to ever be one — however, Jason tried to clean it up as best he could.

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?
Like Torches has released the first single off its upcoming album (produced by Ryan Key and Ryan Mendez from Yellowcard). The song and video features guest vocals from Ryan Key and you can view it in the replies. You can also pick it up on iTunes.
Yellowcard will be playing a short string of dates leading up to the band's co-headlining Canadian tour with All Time Low. Yellowcard's US headlining dates can be found here and the co-headlining Canadian dates can be found in the replies.
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!
