Yellowcard - Ocean Avenue (Acoustic Single)Yellowcard – Ocean Avenue (Acoustic Single)

This year marks the tenth anniversary of the classic Yellowcard album ‘Ocean Avenue’ and to celebrate the anniversary of the album Yellowcard have re-recorded the 13 track album in acoustic format and are set to release it on the 13th August on Hopeless Records, this year also marks the tenth anniversary of the single of the same name which Yellowcard have just released in acoustic format.

Now I know the original version of ‘Ocean Avenue’ went down a storm when it was released 10 years ago but for me this acoustic offering of the single is so much better and the version that the fans have been crying out for over the past few years, the song is very relaxed sounding whilst Ryan Key’s vocals sound louder, clearer and stronger than ever before, it is the perfect summer track for drunken fun on the beach whilst having a barbecue with a group of friends sat in a circle around a fire singing their hearts out to the lovely lyrics Key’s wrote all those years ago.

Since Yellowcard have returned from their hiatus they have been on fire releasing two brand new studio albums and also set to release their second acoustic album in the matter of years and I personally can’t wait to hear Ocean Avenue acoustic in its entirety after falling in love with the acoustic reworking of the single so much.
