AMONGST THE lat­est ad­di­tions to Slam Dunk Fes­ti­val – which in­clude May­day Pa­rade, Hit The Lights, ROAM, North­lane, Hack­tivist, Can­cer Bats and Norma Jean – are Florida pop-punks Yel­low­card, who are set to play their 2003 ca­reer-mak­ing Ocean Av­enue al­bum in full.

“When Ocean Av­enue ex­ploded, we went from try­ing to get on what­ever shows we could as an opener to play­ing the main stage at Warped Tour and win­ning a Moon­man at the MTV VMA’S,” ex­plains front­man Ryan Key.

And what are they most look­ing for­ward to about play­ing the al­bum back-to-back?

“There are a lot of songs from Ocean Av­enue that we don’t play of­ten in our reg­u­lar sets,” adds Ryan.“so, I’m look­ing for­ward to re­vis­it­ing those and see­ing Yel­low­card fans who are re­ally happy hear­ing the whole record played live.”

The shows will also be Yel­low­card’s fi­first time play­ing Slam Dunk… “I’ve heard the crowd is in­sane. If you look at the line-up, how could they not lose their minds?”
