Currently in the midst of the US leg of their ‘Final World Tour’, Yellowcard have now announced two extra UK shows in Brighton and London to round off their highly anticipated UK Tour in December. The previously announced o2 Shepherds Bush Empire show on 15th December is now sold out with a newly announced date at Brooklyn Bowl on 22nd December now set to be the band’s final show in this country.
Yellowcard’s self-titled final album was released via Hopeless Records in September. ‘Yellowcard’ was a very personal journey for the band that was self-produced by Ryan Key and guitarist Ryan Mendez with long-time ally and close friend Neal Avron close by as Executive Producer.
“The motivation behind this was to make sure these songs came from a place that was deeply rooted in us,” they explain about taking the reins and crafting it from top to bottom. “We wanted to push ourselves to create a lasting finale for this incredible story on our own. It is also why we chose to self-title the album. We were lucky to still have our friend and mentor, Neal Avron, on board as Executive Producer. We’ve made one of the strongest records of our career and a fitting final creative piece.”
“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.”
