Yellowcard, known for hits such as 'Ocean Avenue,' are at the top of the game and continue to evolve on 'Here I am Alive.' The pop-punk tune was inspired by Yellowcard's own past mistakes and successes. Ryan Key said they were excited to write more music, adding, "We got back from tour, and we wanted to keep the ball rolling." The relatable track is about overcoming mistakes and strongly surviving for the future, as one grows older. Key sings in the beginning of the song, "If I could write to the kid I was before, I'd tell him look at everything you ever wanted, but you'd still want more."
'Southern Air' is scheduled to be released on August 14. The album will also feature appearances by members of the bands Hey Monday and All Time Low. Listen to 'Here I am Alive' right now on AOL Radio's New Alternative First.
