Yellowcard announce ‘Ocean Avenue’ acoustic album, tour with Geoff Rickly (Thursday)

Yellowcard have announced Ocean Avenue Acoustic, an album consisting of the 13 songs from 2003's Ocean Avenue recorded acoustically. The album will be released August 13 via Hopeless Records, and pre-orders are available now.

The band posted on their website that they wanted to do "more than just a tour" for the ten year anniversary of the album, but will also be hitting the road with Geoff Rickly of Thursday in celebration of it.

Ocean Avenue Acoustic - The Tour will begin in September after various European shows and US festivals. The band will also be playing the entire album in Australia in October.

"In the US and Australia, we will be performing the entire [Ocean Avenue] record acoustically from start to finish, and then closing the show with an electric set that covers the other albums," Yellowcard said. “In Europe, we will be playing the Vans Warped Tour, so the headlining shows will just be Ocean Avenue Acoustic. To hear the other records you'll have to get to the closest Warped date!”

Tickets for the Ocean Avenue Acoustic - The Tour will go on sale today, June 3, at 3 p.m. local venue time. They will be sold for $23 until June 10 at 9:59 a.m. local time.
