Top US rockers Yellowcard will be premiering songs from their new album Lights and Sounds at the UEA, Norwich, this Saturday night.
Yellowcard formed in 1997 and relocated from their native Jacksonville, Florida, to Southern California. After three independent releases and years of incessant touring, they released their Capitol Records debut, Ocean Avenue, in 2003.
Rolling Stone magazine hailed it as a “winning combination of punk, pop and classical”. By the close of 2004, they'd had three US hit singles, won a MTV Video Music Award and performed on The Tonight Show. Hailed as one of the great live acts of their generation, they've sold out shows across the US, from Hollywood's Palladium to the Roseland Ballroom in New York.
The new album, released in January, was recorded at the historic Sunset Sound studios in Los Angeles and looks like following the success of Ocean Avenue which has sold nearly 2.5 million copies worldwide.
Support comes from energetic Essex noisemakers Engerica featuring David Gardner (guitar/vocals), Michael Stuart Webster (bass) and Neil Ross Gregory (drums).
