Mayday Parade

Tallahassee FL, United States (2005 – present)

Mayday Parade was born in 2005 when two popular Tallahassee bands, Kid Named Chicago and Defining Moment, decided to merge and form one group. Both bands had been friends for a long time but they each seemed to have different kind of holdups. They pooled their resources, booted out the undedicated members and decided to take the good from each band and move forward. Armed with a dynamic lead singer Derek Sanders of Defining Moment, Mayday Parade explodes with energy and personality. Fans of both bands came together in support of the Parade and it wasn’t long until thousands of other new fans got into the action. Mayday Parade knew they’d have to start at the grassroots level and began to work themselves to the top. Through their catchy tunes and fun attitude, they have hooked fans at their shows and online with an interactive MySpace selling 10,000 EPs without label support.

With the work hard, play hard, do whatever it takes to spread your music philosophy that most young bands need to have these days, the band took to the road and started winning over kids not just in Florida, but across the country. Mayday Parade was consistently in the top 30 unsigned artists on MySpace. They’ve consolidated over 50,000 friends and growing and have totaled over 2.4 Million plays. With labels hot on their tail, Mayday Parade decided that Fearless Records was the one for them and signed at the end of the summer 2006.

They then released their first professional record, A Lesson In Romantics, in 2007.

    here's a little cronological list i want to make because i do. tales ep: their punk/obscure record. A+ a lesson: their punk/depressive record. A+ anywhere: their acoustic/pop punk record. A- valdosta: their acoustic/look-back versions (not to mention amber lynn and terrible things, those awesome pieces of perfection). A- self-titled: their pressured-to-revival-punk-days/depressive record: B+ monsters: their pressured-to-be-at-least-as-good-as-self-titled/weird record: B- they've been losing that mayday taste, as we all could notice, but they're still better than the average pop punk scene.

    "this band doesn't get enough credit for consistently putting out solid albums. everyone just fanboys over ALIR. even though it's a sweet record, so are the others." [2]
