Yellowcard are returning to the road this summer. The band is touring for the first time in almost seven years to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their watershed album Ocean Avenue. The trek kicks off on July 5 at the Pier Six Pavilion in Baltimore and wraps up on August 8 at the Levitt Pavilion in Denver. Throughout the run, the band will be performing in New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, Atlanta, and more alongside This Wild Life. Additional special guests Mayday Parade, Story of the Year, and Anberlin will appear on select dates.

“Announcing a Yellowcard tour is something I never thought we would get to do again,” says frontman Ryan Key. “Much less, a tour with bands of this caliber made up of such amazing people and good friends. Being given the opportunity to play music together again is truly a gift that we are not taking for granted. We are going to make these shows extremely special for all of the fans who we have missed so much these last six years.”

Tickets start at $29.50 and VIP packages will be available beginning with an Artist pre-sale on Wednesday, February 15 at 10am HERE. Additional pre-sales will be available throughout the week before general on sale starting on Friday, February 17 at 10am HERE.

Yellowcard retired as a band six years ago. They released their tenth (and final, for now) studio LP, Yellowcard, via Hopeless Records in 2016. They returned to the stage at Riot Fest in Chicago last September.

“When we stepped away in 2017, all of us thought it was truly the end,” the band said at the time. “However our journey together continues to surprise us.”

Certified double platinum in the US by the RIAA, gold in Canada, and silver in the UK, Ocean Avenue solidified Yellowcard’s indelible mark on the music world.  The undying esteem that the album owns has not diminished in the twenty years since its release. With signature singles “Way Away,” “Only One,” and the title track “Ocean Avenue” among the 13 tracks, it not only marks their entrance into the mainstream but also the stratospheric success of the band whose subsequent albums cemented the band’s legacy in the history of alternative music.
