Ben Harper, former lead guitarist, and Longineu Parsons, former drummer for the band, have formed This Legend alongside Stanley and the Search‘s Chris Castillo and Steven Neufeld from HeyMike!.
The group have been signed to the Cyber Tracks record label and are set to be releasing their debut album in October, which is being produced by Sam Pura, who has worked with The Story So Far.
Here is a statement from Longineu Parsons:
“After being in Yellowcard for 18 years, this will definitely be a new experience for me. The last 18 years with Yellowcard has played a big role in who I am today. I am excited to begin this new adventure with my best friend Ben Harper and re-unite in a new musical endeavor together.
“I’m stoked to embark on this journey with one of my inspirations, El Hefe of NOFX, and I feel This Legend is a perfect fit for the Cyber Tracks family. Jen and Hefe have been very supportive throughout my new transition and I feel we’ve created a solid team. I can’t wait to start writing again. Thank you to my fans for sticking by my side throughout all of this. See you on the road very soon!”
