Yellowcard became one of the most successful alternative bands of the 2000s with its unique use of violin in their pop punk sound. The band released an acoustic reinterpretation of their seminal 2003 album Ocean Avenue in August 2013, completing a worldwide concert stretch with shows in Australia, Europe and the U.K. and is set to tour the U.S. in 2014. After putting out two albums in Florida, core members Ryan Key, Sean Mackin and Longineu W. Parsons relocated to Los Angeles in 2000 and released their third album One for the Kids in 2011, following it up with The Underdog EP in 2002. The band signed with Capitol Records that year and began recording their major-label debut, resulting in the release of their fourth album Ocean Avenue in July 2003, which peaked at No. 23 on the U.S. Billboard 200 and sold over two million copies with its hit single “Ocean Avenue.” Next up was 2006’s Lights and Sounds, as well as 2007’s Paper Walls, which debuted at No. 13 on the U.S. Billboard 200. They played for ticket holders in support of Blue October and Linkin Park that year, before announcing a hiatus that would span 2008 to 2010. They returned with When You're Through Thinking, Say Yes in March 2011 and played shows in Europe and the U.S. In 2012, Yellowcard joined the Vans Warped Tour and released their critically acclaimed eighth album Southern Air in August, debuting at No. 10 on the Billboard 200.
