Yellowcard Australian Tour


With Special Guests Mayday Parade & Born Lion.

Fans have eagerly been awaiting the return of Yellowcard to Australia and Frontier Touring can now confirm that we will be bringing them back to tour Australia in July. This time the band will also be taking Mayday Parade on the road with them in PerthAdelaideBrisbaneSydney and Melbourne!

Back in action with their seventh studio album Lift A Sail (out through Cooking Vinyl Australia on 10 October 2014), Yellowcard have returned with what frontman Ryan Key acknowledges as a new challenge for the band but “still a massive rock record”.

Formed in Jacksonville, Florida in 1997, Ryan Key, Sean Mackin, Ryan Mendez and Josh Portman have given us some of this generation’s most resounding pop punk rock tunes including ‘Ocean Avenue’, ‘Lights and Sounds’ and ‘Light Up The Sky’.

After a huge transitional time for the four members, the band’s personal lives have become the driving force behind their latest record Lift A Sail. The album’s lead single ‘One Bedroom’ is inspired by the tiny Denver apartment that front man Ryan Key shared with his wife Alyona Alekhina after the pair married in an intensive care unit in 2013.

Lift A Sail sees Yellowcard honour the nostalgic violin-infused rock, courtesy of Sean Mackin, and once again sees them growing bigger, louder and more fearless than their previous records - elements that will definitely satisfy loyal fans and draw in the music lovers of today.

“We are so excited to announce that we will be touring Australia in July of 2015 in support of our new album Lift A Sail. We will be sharing the stage with fellow Floridians, Mayday Parade! We are pumped to be able to perform in Australia again, and to share the stage with Mayday Parade!! Hope to see y'all there!!” – Ryan, Sean, Ryan & Josh (Yellowcard)

‘Along with guitarist Ryan Mendez, violinist Sean Mackin and bassist Josh Portman and guest drummer Nate Young from Anberlin, the group has created a larger, more anthemic rock sound that draws inspiration from ‘90s acts like Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Filter, Weezer, Foo Fighters – the bands that prompted the members of Yellowcard to pick up their instruments initially’ – USA Today

Just last year Yellowcard toured Down Under in celebration of the tenth anniversary of Ocean Avenue, their most acclaimed album to date. The acoustic tour was met with rave reviews for a band that so many people grew up listening to and who are still able to recapture the familiar rock sounds many grew up loving.

‘The electricity in the room was still alive as we filed out onto King Road, all amazed and content with one of the best shows I’ve seen for the year.’ – The AU Review

‘It’s a fantastic thing when a band like Yellowcard can release a landmark album like Ocean Avenue, and still sell out a venue like the Palace ten years after its release. It’s a testament to their showmanship, dedication as musicians and above all, their promises to their fans: if they keep coming to their shows, they’ll keep coming to our shores.’ – The 59th Sound

The excitement building around their upcoming album has definitely started rippling amongst the long-time Yellowcard fans, with ‘One Bedroom’ winning over many new ones.

The good news keeps rolling in with American rock quintet Mayday Parade confirmed as support on all Australian dates. The band who continue to provide fans with their iconic catchy, pop-punk style, which radiates real rock energy are back with their fourth studio album Monsters In The Closet (out now through Fearless Records). The album debuted at #10 on the Billboard 200 and #2 on the Independent Label Chart, with single ‘Ghosts’ emitting the perfect balance of rock and melodic and catchy pop sensibilities that Mayday Parade are known and loved for.
