Ryan Key from Yellowcard Releasing Solo EP


William Ryan Key is slated to release his first solo single on May 18th and his first solo EP on May 25th.

After the breakup of Yellowcard in Spring 2017, vocalist/guitarist William Ryan Key starting working on his solo debut EP, THIRTEEN which will be released on May 25, 2018 via The Lone Tree Recordings.

A new headspace with a sound that moves away from the pop punk genre that Yellowcard helped create and into new uncharted territory that’s equally introspective but not as anchored in convention.

“It took a long time to find my own focus and direction after 17 years in a band,” Ryan explains. “However, once I found it, the music felt like coming home. There was new freedom and creativity that I channeled into each of the songs.”

To support the release of the EP, he will accompany friends New Found Glory both as support act on their upcoming U.S. "Sick Tour 2018" and playing guitar during their set. “It’s such an amazing opportunity to be able to share my first work as a solo artist with fans on a tour of this magnitude,” Ryan says about the tour. “It’s also super special for me that it happens to be with some of the best people I’ve had the pleasure of knowing throughout my musical journey.”
