+ Mayday Parade (US) + Born Lion


Fans have eagerly been awaiting the return of Yellowcard to Australia and Frontier Touring can now confirm that we will be bringing them back to tour Australia in July. This time the band will also be taking Mayday Parade on the road with them!

Back in action with their seventh studio album Lift A Sail (out through Cooking Vinyl Australia on 10 October 2014), Yellowcard have returned with what frontman Ryan Key acknowledges as a new challenge for the band but “still a massive rock record”.

Formed in Jacksonville, Florida in 1997, Ryan Key, Sean Mackin, Ryan Mendez and Josh Portman have given us some of this generation’s most resounding pop punk rock tunes including ‘Ocean Avenue’, ‘Lights and Sounds’ and ‘Light Up The Sky’.

After a huge transitional time for the four members, the band’s personal lives have become the driving force behind their latest record Lift A Sail. The album’s lead single ‘One Bedroom’ is inspired by the tiny Denver apartment that front man Ryan Key shared with his wife Alyona Alekhina after the pair married in an intensive care unit in 2013.

Lift A Sail sees Yellowcard honour the nostalgic violin-infused rock, courtesy of Sean Mackin, and once again sees them growing bigger, louder and more fearless than their previous records - elements that will definitely satisfy loyal fans and draw in the music lovers of today.

The good news keeps rolling in with American rock quintet Mayday Parade confirmed as support on all Australian dates. The band who continue to provide fans with their iconic catchy, pop-punk style, which radiates real rock energy are back with their fourth studio album Monsters In The Closet (out now through Fearless Records). The album debuted at #10 on the Billboard 200 and #2 on the Independent Label Chart, with single ‘Ghosts’ emitting the perfect balance of rock and melodic and catchy pop sensibilities that Mayday Parade are known and loved for.

Furthermore, opening each show will be Sydney band Born Lion. Having been compared to bands like Fugazi, Future of the Left and The Bronx, the band played Bigsound last year and were featured as one of Rolling Stone Magazine’s five most promising acts. Their track ‘D for Danger’ was not only quickly snapped up by triple j, who named them 2014’s Next Crop Artist, but also scored plays on BBC Radio 1 in the UK.

This incredible pop-punk matchup is sure to be a nostalgic experience for many fans keen to revisit some of the most defining musical moments of the last decade. Competition for tickets is expected to be fierce, so don’t miss out!
