FUSE will be streaming some Warped Tour sets tonight beginning at 7:40 EST. The schedule is below, and you should be able to watch it in the replies when it goes live...but if streams don't work when embedded, the link is here.
There's a video interview with Yellowcard's Ryan Mendez in the replies, where he teases a fall tour. He says the opening bands are already locked in, but doesn't say who they are. Who do you want to see Yellowcard hit the road with in support of Southern Air?
Yellowcard violinist Sean Mackin was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in December 2011, and has undergone surgeries and radiation to help fight it. He's getting stronger every day and plans to perform with Yellowcard throughout the entire Warped Tour. Sean wrote a message to the band's fans, which you can read below. Yellowcard is a favorite among the AP.net community, and I personally consider Sean to be one of the most genuinely nice, and wholeheartedly optimistic, people I've met in this industry. We wish him the best of luck moving forward in his treatments, hope he finds the strength and support he needs moving forward, and pray for only the best in the coming months.
We haven't had one of Eda's awesome Bored On Sunday discussions in a while, so I figured I'd whip one up for a discussion topic on a slow-moving Sunday. My question today is, which bands that we cover on AP.net should be on the radio today? Although it seems like a distant past, it wasn't all that long ago that pop-punk bands like All Time Low, Yellowcard, Fall Out Boy and many others graced the airwaves and MTV (when MTV played music videos). I've outlined a few songs that have come out recently that I think would have been on the radio back when these types of bands were more common. Take to the replies to discuss which songs and bands you think should be on regular rotation.
Today we could not be happier to bring you the brand new single from Yellowcard. The new song is called "Always Summer" and comes from the band's upcoming full-length album due out in just a few months. You can head to the replies to stream the new song and check out the single artwork -- or it's also on the band's AP.net profile. The violin solo loudly declares it's time for the weather to get warm ... and time to turn up some Yellowcard. Enjoy!
As if you needed another reason to get excited about the new Yellowcard LP, it looks likePatrick Stump will be featured in a guest vocal spot on it as well. Violinist Sean Mackin says Yellowcard is "really throwing the kitchen sink at this one."
Got a quick update from Ryan Key from Yellowcard about the guest-vocals on the new album. Basically, the guest vocals are part of a huge group four-part harmony in the bridge of a new song. It includes Ryan, Alex from All Time Low, Cassadee Pope, and Tay from We Are The In Crowd. It's a four part harmony in the bridge, not lead vocals. Having spent some time with the band throughout the years, I feel relatively confident in saying this is the most excited I've ever heard them about a new batch of songs.
