Album Review: Yellowcard - Lift a Sail (2014 LP)

Yellowcard have triumphed with their recent release of Lift a Sail. It is an album of personal journey that tells a story of their own; a recollection of memories that have shaped who they are today and a milestone that inevitably shows off their achievements as a band.

New Music Video: Yellowcard "One Bedroom" (2014)

Yellowcard New Album

It’s not that unusual for musicians and activists to band together. I mean hell, even U2 did it. Probably a little too much, but hey we’re not judging. But this new clip from the band’s upcoming album Lift a Sail really shows what artists can – and often do. It’s pretty touching – take a look below.

Yellowcard announce Australian tour alongside Mayday Parade and Born Lion next July!

Yellowcard are coming back to Australia! Yes, admittedly, it's not until July next year, but fans will be grateful to have the news sooner rather than later, right? Frontier Touring will be bringing the band back to our shores in July 2015 for a tour alongside the talented Mayday Parade and Born Lion!

the AU interview: Sean Mackin of Yellowcard (USA) speaks about his journey with the band and new album, "Lift A Sail".

It’s unbelievable to think that Ocean Avenue was released 11 years ago. Time definitely flies and to get to where they are now is an incredible journey for Yellowcard. With their anticipated and upcoming album, Lift A Sail, on its way for release, rest assured fans are expecting something undeniably incredible.

Live Review: Yellowcard + Toyboats - Enmore Theatre, Sydney (26.10.13)


If you ever wanted to know the difference between punk and pop punk, pop punk fans come out early to shows, are less drunk... and as it turns out, are more involved, helping create one of the best shows I've seen at the Enmore in a long time.

Yellowcard return to Australia for their third tour in as many years. Matt Warrell was at their Tivoli show in Brisbane and brings us these photos from the pit:

Fuji Rock Festival announces new artists for its 2013 event.

The lineup for Fuji Rock Festival has just been updated, with the 15 additions only adding to the 3-day festival's bursting line-up. Set in Naeba Ski Resort in Japan's central island's western side, the festival has just entered its 17th year and shows no sign of slowing down. With an incredibly eclectic mix of performers (everything from the enthralling vocals of Bjork to DJ Bauer, the inventor of the Harlem Shake, and Japanese folk musician Morio Agata), there's a huge array of choices sure to leave the perfect timetable makers rewriting their plans until their arrival at the festival.

Live Review: Fat As Butter - The Foreshore Newcastle (22.09.12)

Three days after Fat As Butter, and I am still dazed about the whole thing. All the bands I saw were amazing and I seriously can't fault a single one of them. But the sound left a whole heap to be desired for a festival of its size, there was very little food, even less in the way of stores and the crowd was young, drunk, racist and mostly naked to put it nicely.

Live Review: Yellowcard + Heroes For Hire - Hi-Fi Bar (20.09.12)

For a country that loves Yellowcard so much they certainly aren’t that great at touring here. They last made an appearance for the disappointing Counter Revolution festival a year ago, playing a short but sweet 40 minute set. Before that, the last time they toured was with Sum 41 back in 2007, only taking in Melbourne and Sydney (as well as a nifty acoustic set as part of a Myspace Secret Show) so it’s needless to say that we were ready for them again. However, Heroes For Hire had the honours of warming up the crowd first and quite frankly did a fantastic job of it.
