The Hot Sweat
By Alan Ho -- Chief Head, Chief Editor/Publisher

The past year has been quite the whirlwind for reformed Florida alt-rockers Yellowcard. Considered one of the main influences that launched the Florida rock revolution back in the late 90s, early 2000s, Yellowcard has built their reputation as a prolific touring band and one that put their own indelible stamp on alternative rock and pop-punk with the introduction of the violin in their music.

Coming off a much needed 2 year hiatus that saw the group build families, branch out on their own and then eventually coming back together, Yellowcard is back, bigger and better than ever and most of all, reenergized. Having recaptured their early high energy streak, the band is back out on the road, this time with fellow alt-rockers All Time Low, The Summer Set and Hey Monday on The Dirty Work Tour. Yellowcard also has a new album out aptly titled "When You're Through Thinking, Say Yes" which contains many references to the now pretty prolific and long journey the band has had since forming in 1997 at the Douglas Anderson School of the Arts in Jacksonville, Florida.

I had the opportunity to sit down (in their tour bus!) with violinist Sean Mackin as we discussed everything from how the band got signed to Hopeless following their reforming together to their current tour with All Time Low to their future dates this year in Australia and Indonesia and a bit of a special bit at the end as this former violinist puts a current violinist on the spot!

Editor's Note: A big thanks to Midwest regional head Cristina Carrazza for providing the camera to shoot the v-seater!
