In an interview with OC Weekly, Yellowcard vocalist Ryan Key confirmed that the band have begun writing their next album.

You can check out a snippet below, and read the full interview here.

I've written more than I usually do at this stage…everyone in the band is really spread out geographically right now. Usually, Ryan, Sean and I start writing together early on, but that's kind of hard to do this time. We've talked a lot about it though, and the general consensus is we want it to be really big sounding. We want to open it up big and wide. Songs that we reference are “Be The Young” and “Only One,” so more stuff like that maybe…Also, I'm not sure where I'm going to go lyrically with it, but going through this insane personal experience, I've got some big, anthemic things to say, I think. In my mind, it doesn't necessarily warrant a punk rock record or a pop punk record, but we're going to see where it takes us.

The band have just begun the second leg of their Ocean Avenue Acoustic Tour with What's Eating Gilbert. Be sure to catch them in a city near you!
