Our favourite pop-punk band featuring an ace violinist- Florida’s Yellowcard, in case you didn’t pick up on that- have announced the sad news of their impending break-up.
“When saying farewell, it is hard to know where to start, especially when there are so many reasons not to say it, but the time has come to share this news. After countless discussions and months of thought, we have decided that it is time for Yellowcard to come to an end. This will be our last album and our final world tour.”
After seeing somewhat of a lacklustre set at this year’s Slam Dunk Festival, we hate to say it but we aren’t really all that surprised by the news. They’ve had a career spanning three decades and released some awesome albums in that time, but the past few years have seen the band slow down, making this latest announcement an inevitable- if depressing- eventuality.
For a fitting send off, Yellowcard will be releasing one last self-titled album on 30th October and will be touring the world one final time, heading to the UK in December. We hope we can make it to say goodbye to Yellowcard and give their brilliant contributions to ’00s pop-punk a deserving farewell.
