Good news Yellowcard fans; the band has officially begun working on their new studio album. If that wasn’t enough, the band has also revealed that they have returned home. Well, sort of. On Wednesday (Feb. 24), the California-based, but Florida-born band announced they would be returning to Hopeless Records for their untitled eighth full-length record.
In a message on Instagram, the band wrote: “It’s a huge honor to announce that we have started working on our 8th studio recording which will be released later this year on Hopeless Records. We couldn’t be more happy to be working with the Hopeless family again.”
The band’s return to Hopeless comes about two years after they decided not to resign with the label. Instead, they opted to sign with Razor & Tie Records (home of HIM, The Pretty Reckless, Chiodos) for their 2014 release, Lift a Sail. Currently, there is no official time frame for the release of the new album, though they do plan to have the album out some time this year. Check out the welcome back video below.
