It’s always a sad day when we have to say goodbye to some of our musical icons. Today, an announcement was made from another legacy favorite, Yellowcard, that their next album and tour will be the band’s last, and want to give the fans a great farewell experience. In the band statement, it is highlighted as a very bittersweet moment for the band, but a decision that they knew it was the right time.
Putting this into words hasn’t been easy. 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. 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.
The decision was an incredibly difficult one for us to make. We considered so many things – our families, our health, our future endeavors. In the end we realized that this was the right time to step away and preserve the legacy and integrity of the band. It is with you, the fans in mind, that this decision was made, We wanted to have the chance to share our farewell with as many fans around the world as we could, and now is the right time to do just that.
