Mayday Parade Press ReleaseMAYDAY PARADE RETURNS WITH HIGHLY-ANTICIPATED
SELF-TITLED ALBUM OCTOBER 4

SUMMER TOUR WITH ALL TIME LOW CONFIRMED

Mayday Parade is gearing up for the release of their third full-length album, the eponymous Mayday Parade, available October 4. In anticipation of the release, the band will embark on a North American tour with All Time Low at the end of July. See below for full details.

Co-produced by Zack Odom and Kenneth Mount, Mayday Parade marks a return to their songwriting roots; the entire album was self-written as a collaborative effort by the five band mates. The 12-song collection transpired through careful introspection and it echoes the musicians' maturation over the two years since their second album, Anywhere But Here. The band chose to pen each of the songs themselves, making the album perhaps their most personal to date, complete with relatable lyrics and their undeniable charm.

Recently, the band released a 6-song EP, Valdosta, containing four re-recorded acoustic versions of previous singles alongside two all new tracks. Two days after the release of Valdosta, Songkick recognized Mayday Parade as the hardest working band of 2010 with 194 logged tour dates and over 71,000 miles travelled. The rockers placed above seminal favorites such as Willie Nelson and pop culture phenomena like Lady Gaga.

Mayday Paradefirst burst onto the scene with their 2007 debut A Lesson in Romantics, which received immense praise from critics and fans alike. AbsolutePunk claimed it was sure to become "one of your most played [albums] of the summer." It went on to sell more than 170,000 copies and reached the Top Ten on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. Mayday Parade is vocalist/piano Derek Sanders, bassist Jeremy Lezno, guitarists Alex Garcia and Brooks Betts and drummer/vocalist Jake Bundrick.

Mayday Parade:
1. Oh Well, Oh Well
2. No Heroes Allowed
3. When You See My Friends
4. You're Dead Wrong
5. Priceless
6. Stay
7. Call Me Hopeless, Not Romantic
8. A Shot Across the Bow
9. Everything's An Illusion
10. I'd Rather Make Mistakes Than Make Nothing At All
11. Without The Bitter The Sweet Isn't As Sweet
12. Happy Endings Are Stories That Haven't Ended Yet

At least the song titles are more ALIR than ABH. If that's any indication at all.

Stoked for this. Always thought they were one of the better pop bands out there. ABH wasn't horrible but I know they can do better.

Edit: I love the title of track 12. Excited to hear it.

I really want to hear what this sounds like, they've all bashed ABH, so hopefully it sounds more vintage Mayday.

I'm excited for this. The best songs on Anywhere But Here were the two without co-writers. I think they can bounce back since they got rid of the co-writers.

are we living in the end times when the press release of a pop-punk record has to stress twice that the band wrote their songs themselves?

Stoked. I did like some songs on their last but hope this is straight Mayday glory. Even without he who shall not be named.

The tracklisting is making me even more excited, what with the return of long song titles. I want so much for this band to get back to how good they used to be. Also, I had a feeling this would be self-titled.

Considering the fact that Jason wrote most of the first one and that co-writers wrote all of the second one, its kind of nice being reassured that they actually wrote this one.
