Yellowcard releases Ocean Avenue Acoustic to celebrate Ocean Avenue’s 10th anniversary + reveals two video surprises.


954640_595214033856016_1418778917_nOur favorite Floridian pop punk band is celebrating 2003’s platinum record Ocean Avenue in a special manner by releasing Ocean Avenue Acoustic via Hopeless Records on 12th August.“On July 22, 2003 our lives were changed forever,” says the band in a joint statement. “We didn’t know what Ocean Avenue would become, but it is a chapter in our story that we will never forget.  We knew that for the 10th anniversary of the release we wanted to do something more than just a tour.” The limited edition pre-order  packages will include an exclusive white vinyl, a one time only pressing 7″, hand written lyric sheets by Ryan Key and more and are available now at Moment.

In addition to that, Ryan Key and co have revealed two new videos on Hopeless Records’ YouTube channel, one of them being an acoustic live performance of the one and only Ocean Avenue and the other – a retrospective video, looking back on their 2003 platinum album.

Soon after the release of the acoustic album, the band will hit the road throughout the US, Europe & Australia and will be performing the entire record acoustically from start to finish, and then closing the show with an electric set that covers the other albums. They explain – “In Europe, we will be playing the Vans Warped Tour, so the headlining shows will just be Ocean Avenue Acoustic. To hear the other records you’ll have to get to the closest Warped date!”
