    There will be a new pressing of Yellowcard’s One for the Kids on vinyl. It’s been “remixed” and “remastered” and comes with new artwork. You can hear a new version of “October Nights” below.

    I have it on good authority that this was not something all members of the band were involved with or, really, had any input on this happening or the new mixing and artwork. So, don’t expect this to be a sign of anything else to come except that Lobster Records still owns the masters for this record and can do whatever they want with it.

    I will not support this. I will wait for One For The Kids (William Ryan’s Version) on 4LP

    I mean, it seems like most of the guys who were in the band at the time are supporting this…. I get that it was just Ryan at the end, but I don’t know if it’s wrong that someone else has the rights and ability to repress this…

    Nice. Interested to hear the remastered version. This album reminds me of rainy summer days back home on Lake Michigan.

    I just want YC to purchase the masters and then come out with One for the Kids - Yellowcard's Version

    Yes, with a ten minute version of Big Apple Heartbreak.

    Okay, I know every inch of this album and is it just me...or does this new mix of October Nights have intonation issues not in the original version? I know Ryan got better at singing as he got older but it's not just him, there's also weird pitchiness in the guitar work too. Did they just strip away all pitch correction in this mix?

    I want Ocean Avenue to be repressed, though.

    Same. And I will gladly support his reworked versions of Yellowcard songs that are coming next year, too.

  12. I don’t know. This was done entirely without Sean or I having any knowledge of it so I haven’t heard any of the new mixes, or seen any of the “new artwork”. The mixer contacted me to tell me that he was trying to have his mixes pulled because of how manipulated they were, and how shady the entire process was, but that it was all already in the bag and nothing could be done. I basically found out this was a thing the week they announced it.

    So you’re saying this isn’t leading up to a reunion with Ben, warren, and Longinue?

    I appreciate the comment. Offers clarity from Sean and your perspective.
  15. To clarify, I’m not speaking for Sean’s perspective. I am just aware that he was also not informed about the release in any way.

    I guess an interesting takeaway from this whole situation is how many of us are still very interested and excited in hearing more work from you (Yellowcard/WRK/whatever other project).
  17. I am so grateful to still have support from all of you for my music. Next year is going to be so fun. New solo EP, first Jedha EP and full length, full album of reimagined Yellowcard songs featuring Hammock, scoring my first big project with Ryan Mendez. I can’t wait.

    Looking forward to hearing it all. Happy to hear we’ll be getting such a nice variety too and more accessible the better.

    Are there any songs that were meant for Will & The Wiskeymen that haven't been released yet?

    I’d totally love to hear any unreleased Yellowcard, Will and The Whiskeymen, Big If…, or WRK Patreon (Part 1) songs that haven’t had a wide release.

    2022 sounds nice and busy. I’ve been saying I’d love to see WRK co-write, sing on and maybe produce something (even like a single) with NFG, but I’ll hold that hope for a less busy year.
