Yellowcard: Pop-punk rockers Yellowcard rose to fame during the genre's rise in the early 2000s. Their album Ocean Avenue brought them to the forefront of the mainstream and launched the band into the upper echelons of fame. Yellowcard's international tour dates display an energy and comfortability rarely rivaled by bands today. After going on hiatus in 2008, Yellowcard has returned to the public eye with the release of When You're Through Thinking, Say Yes in March 2011. The band's return to music also includes current 2011 tour dates, which has come as a relief to Yellowcard's fans.

Yellowcard's first two albums -- Midget Tossing (1997) and Where We Stand (1999) -- featured a hardcore punk sound and did not feature the vocal stylings of Ryan Key. Key brought a more popular and accessible pop punk sound to their third album, One for the Kids, and The Underdog EP, which gained Yellowcard much more attention. It also scored the group a record deal with Columbia Records, which released Ocean Avenue in 2003. The album's title track began playing on MTV and soon became a smash hit, launching Yellowcard into stardom. The album became so popular that Yellowcard was immediately given two years worth of headlining tour dates, further building their fan base.

After numerous delays, Lights and Sounds was released in 2006 and featured an alt rock sound that strayed from their hit style. Yellowcard brought back a portion of that pop-punk sound on their 2007 album, Paper Walls, which was followed by another couple of years playing tour dates. The strain touring put on the band member's personal lives became a little too much, and Yellowcard went on an indefinite hiatus in 2008. In August 2010, Yellowcard announced that they were working on new tracks, which was followed by their first concert date in four years in November. When You're Through Thinking, Say Yes was released in March 2011 and has received rave reviews from critics and fans, who not only call it a comeback for Yellowcard but also their best album yet.

In true Yellowcard fashion, the band is currently performing a number of tour dates in 2011. Currently in the US, Yellowcard will play a handful of concert dates in South America beginning on July 24. On August 24, the band will begin touring Europe, with tour dates in nearly a dozen countries before heading to Australia on September 24. On October 8, Yellowcard will return to the US to canvass the country once more before ending their 2011 tour dates on November 18. With so many concert dates for Yellowcard this year, check Eventful for all the details.
