It’s In The Streets
For the first time in over ten years, best friends Longineu Parsons III “LP” and Ben Harper, both formerly of Yellowcard, re-united in May, 2014. They have enlisted Chris Castillo of ‘Stanley and the Search’ and Steven Neufeld of ‘HeyMike!’ to form ‘This Legend’. After LP’s departure from Yellowcard in March of 2014, he teamed with Harper to collaborate again. Unsure of what was to come musically, the duo wanted to lean on El Hefe (NOFX) and Wife Jen, for advice. Jen and Hefe suggested they begin writing with Castillo, a musician they had taken under their wing for some time. After solidifying a singer, guitarist and drummer, a bassist and backing vocalist was needed. The group enlisted long time friend Neufeld to fill the slot. 2014 would prove to be the perfect year of break-ups and make-ups. In May of 2014, the band signed to Cyber Tracks, an LA based record label owned by El Hefe (guitarist of NOFX) and Wife, Jen Abeyta.
