Yellowcard are currently streaming their new album Lift A Sail over at Pandora, and after a month or so since the lead single was released, the band have finally released the music video for it.

When “One Bedroom” was released, the initial reviews of the song from fans was mixed at best, like many of the reviews for the other tracks that have been released to date.

Watch the music video for the track which put a charity that the band holds dear in the forefront: Invisible Children.

“Today we’re proud to present our new music video for “One Bedroom.” We teamed up with Invisible Children to give a look at the reality of what life is like for people in central Africa who are still being terrorized by Joseph Kony and his Lord’s Resistance Army.

Working with Invisible Children was an incredible experience. We have never had the opportunity to connect our music to something so much bigger than ourselves in such a direct way.
Together we can put an end to this unnecessary violence and bring back the women and children who are still held captive.”

Lift A Sail will be released next Tuesday, Oct. 7 through Razor & Tie Records.Lift A Sail is the follow-up to 2012’s Southern Air and marks the first record without longtime drummer, Longineu Parsons III.

At first, fans believed Anberlin drummer, Nate Young would take the vacant drum kit after his band’s final tour and official disbandment at the end of November after filling in during Warped Tour, but it turns out, Yellowcard tapped former Thursday drummer, Tucker Rule to take over during their upcoming tour with Memphis May Fire and Emarosa.
