Yellowcard fans are trying to do something about the shocking news revealed by Yellowcard frontman Ryan Key last month that the band was on ‘Indefinite Hiatus’ by launching an online petition to protest the band’s unknown future.

In an interview in May, Key revealed in an interview that the band would be on ‘Indefinite Hiatus’ following their spring tour, and set no time table for their return. “It could be a year, 10 years, or 6 months. It’s been an interesting time in this business and our record label. It’s just…we kind of need a break. I think it appears everything is ok on its surface, but we definitely need a little bit of time to figure out our personal lives,” said Key in the interview. Key was quick to point out however that the hiatus was not due personal differences within the band. “It doesn’t have anything to do with turmoil in the band. It’s more of a, facing adulthood now, and we can’t stay in Neverland forever. You know what I mean? I think we just need a break. Hopefully we will get back to making another record sometime, if not it may be our last, we don’t really know. We’re just keeping the door open.” Yellowcard’s last album, “Paper Walls” released in July of last year, featured the single “Light Up the Sky” which was voted the number 2 song of 2007 in Alternative Addiction’s Top 50 songs of the year chart.
