Pop-punk act Yellowcard has released their final music video ever. Since announcing their split, the band has reacted with a sense of closeness to their fans unlike ever before. From secret shows to added concert dates, Yellowcard seems to be taking the farewell rather hard.
Throughout the band’s storybook career the group have released songs and performed shows that will forever be embedded in history. It’s not just the songs and performances that helped shape Yellowcard, it’s the band as individuals that garnered love and affection from their highly devoted fans.
Now, as the last hurrah, Yellowcard has released their final work of art. In the form of a music video, the band gets emotional in expressing their love to their fans.
At the beginning of “A Place We Set Afire” video vocalist/guitarist Ryan Key states, “We have fans that have been so devoted and so supportive of this band for so long now that I can’t imagine how to look them in the face and tell them this is happening.” Taken from their self-titled final album, “A Place to Set Afire” is an earnest, true goodbye from a band who respected their fans unconditionally.

“It’s definitely not easy,” states violinist Sean Mackin at the conclusion of the video. “I don’t want to say goodbye. I just want to say, ‘Thank you’.”
Ryan comments, “We are happy to finally release our last music video. We chose “A Place We Set Afire” because the song was inspired by and written for you. We are so grateful to one of our biggest fans and friend, Chris Lawrence, for donating his time and passion for Yellowcard to this video. We hope that you enjoy this final farewell piece. Thank you all for everything.”
