Yellowcard – Ocean Avenue Acoustic 7″

Once again Hopeless Records released a 7” single as a pre-order incentive/bonus for people opting to pre-order Yellowcard’s acoustic version of their album Ocean Avenue, simply titled Ocean Avenue Acoustic. Instead of a traditional 7” single however, this one is only single sided and features the title track of the album “Ocean Avenue (Acoustic).” There were 1,000 copies pressed on light gray/gray vinyl. My contact at Hopeless listed it simply as gray even though the webstore had it as light gray.

As was the case with the Southern Air pre-order 7” that was made available for purchase by itself after the album’s release, this pre-order bonus 7” was made available for purchase by itself after the album’s release. But in reality the pre-order 7” was not a free bonus as Hopeless marked up the record tremendously in their webstore, charging $20 for it before shipping, when other retailers were charging as little as $13 for it. The $8 price tag for this “bonus” 7” on its own that Hopeless is charging is par for the course in terms of how much money you would spend on getting the full album and this accompanying 7” in one of the bundles.
