“Life can be pretty hectic no matter who you are and Think Of You is about not wanting to miss a single moment with someone in your life and cherishing every moment you do have with that person, place or thing. It’s a painful reminder that nothing in life last’s forever and we hope it helps anyone who listens to it.” says Jake Bundrick.
In addition to the new single, tickets for the band’s 11th anniversary self-titled album tour are on-sale today. Kicking off in February 2022, the run features support from Real Friends on all dates, with special guests Magnolia Park in North America, Those Who Dream in Australia, and As It Is in the UK/Europe. Full routing can be found below. For tickets and more information, check HERE.
Their seventh studio album together, What It Means To Fall Apartwas created with longtime collaborators Zack Odom and Kenneth Mount, and saw the band diverge from their typical path in the studio. With no final destination in mind and setting their sights on just writing the best songs they could, they started chipping away at something, letting go of any attachment to whether they left the studio with a single, an EP, or a full record. They arrived at a fully realized album, 12 contemplative tracks written through the eyes of a band moving forward with the knowledge they could only gain from looking back. Full track listing can be found below.
The band is looking forward to sharing these songs in venues around the world, noting that it’s not just about creating music for them, but how that music connects them with their fans and each other. “We all live in different states and have separate lives with different things going on,” bassist Jeremy Lenzo shares, “But just being able to get back together and play music is always a highlight.” Lead singer Derek Sanders mirrors that sentiment as well, sharing that the spark that started Mayday Parade still shines bright, “Even after all this time and plenty of other ways it could have gone or plenty of other things that we could be doing with our lives, we’re lucky to be able to do this.”
Since their formation, Mayday Parade have sold over 1.6 million albums in the U.S. inclusive of 675 million streams across their catalog, earning their spot as a household name in the industry. With a certified Gold album and countless global tours under their belt, the band shows no signs of slowing down as their fanbase continues to grow. Recently, their debut album A Lesson In Romantics has found new life on TikTok, with fans using the original tracks in their content as well as creating their own cover versions, some amassing millions of views.
