RELEASE “ALWAYS SUMMER”
First Song From Upcoming Album on Hopeless Records
A fresh and energetic guitar-led track, “Always Summer” crashes out of the gate with their dual-guitar attack with a muscular rhythm section and punctuated by Sean Mackin’s distinctive violin, providing a perfect rallying cry that not only are Yellowcard back, but they’re here to stay. Confident and strengthened by the fan support they’ve received on their return with WYTTSY, this song is not only a love song of sorts, but also a thank you to their fans, in which Ryan Key sings, “I think I have everything I need / It got dark, but now I think I see / The World around is full of arms still reaching out to me.” The track streams exclusively on Absolutepunk.netbeginning on Monday, May 21st here: http://www.absolutepunk.net/showthread.php?t=2754702and will be available on iTunesstarting Tuesday, May 22nd here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/always-summer/id525582205?i=525582206.
