Yellowcard announce final album and farewell World Tour

Pop punk legends Yellowcard have announced that they are to finish as a band later this year after a world tour and final album will be released. The band are set to release a new self-titled album as a parting gift to their fans. A North American tour will kick off on October 6th and will run until November 22nd, as the band prepare for their final European shows, which starts with a gig in Amsterdam on December 7th and running up until the last day of the tour in Birmingham on December 18th.

An official statement from the band read “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 joint statement went on to explain what the end meant for the band and fans alike, “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.”

It will be a shame to the boys go out, but we are sure that the final shows will bring a great mix of the explosive live energy the band have maintained for years and the emotion that comes with a farewell. The bands heartfelt statement comes with a plea to fans to join them on this final experience asking “Please come and join us on our last trip around the globe. We hope to share this final record and tour with each and every one of you.”
