Yellowcard album makes high debut+U.S. tour dates

Yellowcard just debuted at #10 on the Billboard 200 album chart with their new album Southern Air (Hopeless Records).

Produced by longtime associate Neal Avron, it features guest appearances by Alex Gaskarth (All Time Low) and Cassadee Pope (Hey Monday), among others. Air is the fifth Yellowcard album to reach the top 20 (and second in the top 10). 

Says Ryan Key (vocalist/guitarist), “Yellowcard was very literally a garage band in 2000 when we signed our first recording contract. This moment is one that we are not taking lightly and one we will never forget. You all, our fans, have carried us to heights we never thought imaginable.”

In the US alone this week, Southern Air has logged the #10 Top Current Album, #2 Current Rock Album, #2 Current Alternative Album, #2 Vinyl Album, and #2 Indie Label Current Album. Southern Air also has the distinction of being one of the best reviewed Yellowcard albums to date. 

Yellowcard is Key (vocals/guitar), Sean Mackin (violin), Longineu Parsons (drums), Ryan Mendez (guitar) and Josh Portman (bass).
