Fresh off the back of returning to the UK in seven years at this past weekend’s Slam Dunk Festival, Yellowcard have shared details of a new EP.
‘Childhood Eyes’ will be released on 21st July via Equal Vision. It sees the band once again work with producer Neal Avron.
The pop-rockers have also shared a video for its title track. It sees the quartet being held hostage by some mischievous kids, and making their escape.
The track itself is an energetic spin on Yellowcard‘s familiar sound; catchy and rich in its delivery.
On the creation of the title track, ‘Childhood Eyes’, vocalist/guitarist William Ryan Key commented: “I woke up in the middle of the night with the chorus ringing in my head. I grabbed my phone off of the night stand and started typing away, squinting in the dark. This was months before we even started demoing the EP. When we started writing I threw the idea in the hat at the last minute, picked up a guitar to try and put music to the melody in my head for the first time, and ‘Childhood Eyes’ was born”
Key also commented on the meaning of the song, saying “This is a song about being defeated, let down, and deceived time and again, but still managing to find your creative soul and carry on. I think it captures the spirit of Yellowcard, both old and new.”
