Yellowcard Set to Rock Metro

By Randy J. Klodz

Pop-punk band Yellowcard has withstood its share of lineup changes and has emerged as a force to be reckoned with in their genre. Yellowcard will make its first Chicago appearance since the recent release of its new album “Lights and Sounds” when the band plays Metro on Feb. 1.

Yellowcard--which includes William Ryan Key (vocals, guitar), Ryan Mendez (guitar), Peter Mosely (bass), Longineu Warren Parsons (drums) and Sean Michael Wellman-Mackin (violin) hit the mainstream in 2003 with the pop-punk anthem “Ocean Avenue.”
The new album, “Lights and Sounds,” which hit stores on Jan. 24, features the new singles “Lights and Sounds” and “Rough Landing Holly?”

Metro is at 3730 N. Clark St. in Chicago’s Wrigleyville neighborhood. Tickets for this all-ages show are listed for $20 each with showtime scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Rock band Mae is also scheduled to perform. For more info on Yellowcard log on to www.yellowcardrock.com.
