Pop-Punkers Yellowcard on Yellow Vinyl (and More) in New Box Set

leave a comment »

If you’re a vinyl collector or have an incredibly strong sense of nostalgia for recent things, this one’s for you: pop-punk band Yellowcard are compiling their discography onto a collector’s vinyl box set.

The Florida-formed, L.A.-based outfit enjoyed mainstream success with the upbeat “Ocean Avenue” (once expertly described by SPIN magazine as the song that plays right after Hoobastank’s “The Reason” at school dances nationwide). The band’s sound was pure pop with clean production and a skate-rat edge, but what set them apart was the presence of a violinist, longtime band member Sean Mackin. The band cut three albums for Capitol Records before taking a brief hiatus and returning with this year’s strongly-received When You’re Through Thinking, Say Yes.

Now, current label Hopeless Records will release that album, the band’s three Capitol LP and the 2002 Underdog EP both separately and as a limited colored vinyl set (The Underdog EP on red vinyl, Ocean Avenue on blue, Lights and Sounds on gold, Paper Walls on green and When You’re Through Thinking… on purple marble). Fans can order all this here (the sets are available September 13), and you can reacquaint yourself with the albums after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »
