Yellowcard Revisits ‘Ocean Avenue’

An awesome tour is in the cards for Yellowcard fans – especially those who are fond of the band’s fourth LP. The pop punk group is celebrating the 10th anniversary of “Ocean Avenue” by playing the album’s 13 tracks acoustically on tour, from start to finish.

And that’s not all. Yellowcard is also releasing an acoustic version of Ocean Avenue Aug. 13 on Hopeless Records.

“Over the last few months we have been re-imagining all 13 songs in an acoustic setting,” the band said in a statement on its website. “The release will be called simply, Ocean Avenue Acoustic. Some of the songs have a whole new life, while others are acoustic renditions of the originals. We are so excited for you to hear what we’ve done.”
