Watch Yellowcard Perform “One Bedroom” on Tour Opening Night

wpid-yellowcard_2014.jpeg

We’ve said it once and we’ve said it again, we aren’t fans of when people spend a complete concert filming the entire thing on their phone and/or their phone and missing the feeling of actually being there, in the flesh watching an artist perform.

But even though we get peeved by it, that doesn’t mean that all footage shot at a show will annoy us because come on, we are guilty of doing the same sometimes. Case and point comes from a Yellowcard fan, who shot the band’s first time performing new song and lead single, “One Bedroom” live.

The video was shot at the House of Blues in Las Vegas which also happened to be the first stop on their co-headlining tour with Memphis May Fire and Emaroa.

Check out the video below.

The Yellowcard/Memphis May Fire co-headlining tour continues tonight at the North Park Theater in San Diego and will wrap up on Nov. 16 at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco.

Invisible Children Play Main Role in Yellowcard’s “One Bedroom”

wpid-yellowcard_2014.jpeg

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.

Yellowcard’s new album, Lift A Sail isn’t set to be released until Oct. 7 through Razor & Tie, but the band are giving fans the chance to listen to the record a week in advance.

As of now, the band have released a couple of songs from the upcoming ninth album including “One Bedroom,” “Transmission Home,” “Crash the Gates,” and “Make Me So.” Considering that some of their fans were the ones to spill the beans on the new record, it’s nice of them to be giving them the chance to hear the record early.

The full album currently can be heard over on Pandora.

In support of the new album, Yellowcard will be heading out on a co-headlining tour with Memphis May Fire and Emarosa. The tour is slated to begin on Oct. 16 at the House of Blues in Las Vegas and travel across North America, eventually wrapping up on Nov. 16 at San Francisco’s The Regency Ballroom. Full tour dates for the trek can be seen here.

Yellowcard Stream “Make Me So”

wpid-yellowcard_2014.jpeg

Yellowcard promised fans a few days back that they would be releasing a new song from their upcoming album, Lift a Sail.

The band held onto their promise and released their second single, “Make Me So.” Listen to the track below.

Lift a Sail is the band’s ninth studio album, the first since 2012’s Southern Air and the recent departure of longtime drummer Longineu Parsons III.

Information surrounding the new album was shoved into the spotlight when a fan site manage to not only find the album art for the record, but also the tracklist on the same day that the band released the titled. For some reason, it had been posted on Indonesia’s iTunes well ahead of time.

But, even with all the information leakage, the band still managed to keep the official release date underwraps. Lift a Sail will be released on Oct. 7 through Razor & Tie Records.

In support of Lift A Sail, Yellowcard will be hitting the road with Memphis May Fire and special guests Emarosa this upcoming Fall. Tour dates for the co-headlining tour can be seen below.

Yellowcard Officially Reveal Lead Single, Album Release Date

wpid-yellowcard_2014.jpeg

Another day and more news about Yellowcard’s new album Lift A Sail. today, the band have officially confirmed the release date of the record as well as gave fans the official stream of their lead single, “One Bedroom.”

Last week, the song actually made its debut on the radio with the band coaxing fans to call in to request the track, but a stream or audio for the track was a little difficult to find (we were able to listen to it on Philadelphia’s Radio 104.5’s website after searching for a bit).

Now, we have been given the lyric video for the song which can been seen below.

But the stream of the song wasn’t all that we were given today. Like mentioned before, the band have revealed that their ninth studio record will officially be released on October 7.

Until last week, fans were under the impression that the release date would be sometime in September, but when the teaser for the record was released last week, it gave a vague release timeline of “Fall 2014.”

Luckily, Yellowcard were feeling generous even if most of their planned surprise went out the window when most of the information about the record was leaked a few weeks back.

Don’t forget that Yellowcard will be heading out on a co-headlining tour with Memphis May Fire and Emarosa later this year in support of Lift A Sail.

Watch Yellowcard’s ‘Lift A Sail’ Trailer

wpid-yellowcard_2014.jpeg

Yellowcard might have lost the surprise after all the information about their upcoming album was leaked online, but like they say, the show must go on.

When the information about their upcoming new album, Lift a Sail was leaked, the band revealed on Twitter that they had planned to reveal all the information, themselves, in two weeks’ time (which would have been this week). Like they said, “the internet decided otherwise.”

One thing the band did manage to keep underwraps, even with all the exposed information, was the official trailer for the upcoming record. The trailer features not only tons of footage from their time on this year’s Vans Warped Tour, it also features what sounds like a new song, even though a title has not been given.

The trailer can be seen below.

Lift A Sail is set to be released in September, though the trailer says Fall 2014, through Razor & Tie Records. Don’t forget that Yellowcard will be hitting the road with Emarosa and Memphis May Fire later on this year. The tour will begin on October 16 in Las Vegas and will wrap up (according to the tour schedule) on November 16 in San Francisco.

Check out the full co-headlining tour dates here.

Yellowcard’s New Album Info Leaked

wpid-yellowcard_2014.jpeg

UPDATE: Yellowcard have taken to Twitter to confirm that the artwork, tracklist and title are all real. Sadly, the band were going to make the announcement in two weeks, but like everything, the internet beat them to the punch.

Sorry guys.


We might have just posted about Yellowcard’s upcoming tour with Memphis May Fire and Emarosa just a few hours ago, but now more Yellowcard news is coming out.

According to Absolute Punk, the Yellowcard Indonesia Twitter, which might be fan run, post what looks to be the cover art of the band’s upcoming ninth studio album. Along with the album art that was posted, the supposed name of the album as well as the tracklist was revealed. The album is titled, Lift a Sail and will feature 13 new tracks.

Absolute Punk have also pointed out that the album art and the tracklist appear to have come straight from iTunes, though how the Indonesia account managed to get it before the United States fans, is still up in the air. As much as we are grateful to finally have a name for the album instead of just referring to it as “album number nine,” it kind of stinks if the band were going to make a grand announcement, like they did the confirmation on Friday.

Check out the artwork and tracklist below and tell us what you think about it?

Yellowcard Unveil New Album Trailer

image

With Warped Tour winding down within the next week, some good news has come from one of the bands that was on the traveling rock show all Summer: Yellowcard.

The band that just celebrated the seventh year anniversary of their album, Paper Walls, announced that they will be releasing a new record later this year.

The news of the California band releasing a new album is not new news since they had revealed that a while back, but today, they released a short video announcing the ninth studio album, officially.

The record will be released through Razor & Tie Records. Check out the announcement below.

This new album marks the first studio album that the band will record without Longineu Parsons III. The drummer left the band this past March to pursue other musical interest. Since then, Anberlin drummer, Nate Young was unveiled to be filling the vacancy during the recording of the new album and the full length of the Vans Warped tour.

Along with the news that Parsons had left the group, the band also announced they had left Hopeless Records after three years and three albums and that they had signed a multi-album deal with Razor & Tie. As of now, no title has been given for the upcoming release.

Yellowcard Announce Big News

18_yellowcard

Yellowcard fans got some sad news last week when the band announced that their longtime drummer, Longineu “LP” Parsons III, had left the band. The statement was sweet and simple revealing that Parsons had “decided to pursue other musical interest.”

Now, the band are back with better news to get their fans out of the little funk they might have gone into when they found out one of the original members was gone. The Florida-based group announced today that they have signed with Razor & Tie Records and their new album which they had previous announced, is set to be released later this year.

Like fellow new Razor & Tie artist The Ready Set, who also just signed a deal with the label, Yellowcard have signed a multi-record deal with the California indie-label. Earlier this year, Yellowcard announced they were working on new material, but now it has been confirmed that the new record, still untitled, will be released this Fall.

“We are beyond excited for what lies ahead. There are so many amazing opportunities on the horizon for us, and we are stoked to have a new partner in Razor & Tie,” the band commented about the new business relationship.

“It’s great to have Yellowcard on Razor & Tie.  They make rock the way we like it—with energy, hooks and attitude. They are total pros and we couldn’t be more proud to work with them,” added Razor & Tie co-owners Cliff Chenfeld and Craig Balsam.

Yellowcard have already been confirmed as one of the many artists to take a ride on the Vans Warped Tour this year. The new record will also mark the follow-up to 2012’s Southern Air.
