After an incredible 15-year run which saw the band catapulted to the top of the current post-hardcore scene, Letlive. has today announced that they are breaking up “for the foreseeable future”. You can read their entire breakup statement below.
The news that Yellowcard is breaking up later this year hit a lot of people very hard, myself (somewhat) included. Being born and raised in Florida, I had the opportunity to see them around a half dozen times through various album cycles, all the way back to around 2004. And you can bet that I’ll be seeing them at my Warped date July 1st, and likely again on their farewell tour as well. Looking back on their long career, I feel a wave of emotions from their music, so read below for a bit of a story, if you’re into that sort of thing.
