Yellowcard’s 2003 album Ocean Avenue was not only a landmark record for the band, but for the entire pop-punk genre. Featuring timeless hits like “Ocean Avenue” and “Way Away” the album gave the band a one-way ticket to stardom. Now, ten years and four albums later, the band has announced their plans for an acoustic remake of their breakthrough record.
On May 3rd, in response to unconfirmed rumors of the band’s intentions the band tweeted: “If you’ve seen the ‘leaked’ news about ‘Ocean Avenue Acoustic’, we had a better plan to tell you, but it’s true. More news to come very soon!”.
This is a dream come true for many pop-punk enthusiasts, and anticipation for the record is running high. No release date or further information on the album has been released to the public. “Ocean Avenue Acoustic” will mark the second time that Yellowcard has recorded a full acoustic remake of a full-length record. The band released the acoustic version of their 4th major label album When You’re Through Thinking, Say Yes in 2011.
