Yellowcard heading back to UK with spring 2013 dates

Posted: 17th September 2012
The Jacksonville five-piece continue their post-break-up renaissance with a clutch of shows early next year, tickets on sale Friday 21st September

Two years after the uncertainty of 'indefinite hiatus', US pop-punk five-piece Yellowcard are following their two albums since getting it back together in 2010 with their first UK dates since 2011's sold out headline tour (as well last year's stint supporting All Time Low).

The break, taken for a variety of reasons and, at that time, with no guarantee of reformation, seems to have done Yellowcard good. They've returned with two successful records, last year's When You're Through Thinking, Say Yes and then their eighth studio record since first getting together in 1997, this August's Southern Air.

Both charted well in the US, reaching the Top 20 and then Top 10 on the main Billboard countdown respectively. Southern Air also peaked at No 2 on both the Alt and Rock charts. You can see Ryan and Sean from Yellowcard announcing the new tour in the above clip.

The tour kicks off at the Wedgewood Rooms in Portsmouth on 25th February, followed by dates in London, Glasgow, Manchester and Coventry, before the final gig announced so far at the Waterfront in Norwich on 5th March 2013. The London show is at Koko on 26th February. We will have tickets available from 9am on Friday 21st September, priced from £14 (£15 for Koko).
