Yellowcard is a band of survivors.  They had a huge hit album HOW MANY YEARS AGO with Ocean Avenue and have managed to not only survive when many of their peers fell by the wayside, but thrive.

During Warped Tour 2012, I was very prepared to talk to the band about their then new album Southern Air.  Sadly, it never came to be.

Not expecting them to be available to do press, I was in no way ready to do an interview this year.

When the opportunity arose for me to speak to violinist Sean Mackin, I was certainly willing, but ill-prepared.  With a new album on the way, I had to improvise my way through an interview to gather whatever information I could.

He remained tight-lipped about most details for the album which with the exception of it again being recorded with their constant producer, Neal Avron.  Subsequently, it came to light that the album is named Lift A Sail and should be due out this fall. We were able to speak in generalities about it, to talk about their new drummer, Nate from Anberlin and to reflect upon how far the band has truly come.

Yellowcard’s newest album Lift A Sail comes out October 7th on Razor & Tie Records. They will also be hitting the road this fall with Memphis May Fire and Emarosa.
