“There’s a place off Ocean Avenue, where I used to sit and talk with you. We were both 18 and it felt so right — sleeping all day, staying up all night”

Yellowcard, who currently are on the Vans Warped Tour line-up, have announced that this fall will see the release of their final album, and the beginning of their final tour.

“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,” the band in a unified statement. “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.”

They have announced that September 30 would be the release date of their final album. The self-titled album will be released on Hopeless Records.

The punk-pop band also announced that their final tour– “The Final World Tour”– will begin in San Antonio on October 6.

Yellowcard is best known for their hits “Ocean Avenue”, “Way Away” and “Only One” off their first album titled Ocean Avenue Yellowcard commented as a unified band, “We will be forever grateful to Yellowcard fans all over the world for the opportunities you have given us. We have played shows for nearly two decades on six continents and had the chance to keep recording the music we love year after year. While it is with sadness that we say goodbye, it is with gratitude and amazement that we look back on a career we can be proud of, and were so very lucky to have had.”

In regard to the tour dates, Yellowcard announced that “[They] wanted to have the chance to share our farewell with as many fans around the world as we could, and now is the right time to do just that.”
