Mayday Parade drop brand new single ‘More Like A Crash’ with fantastic facial hair themed video
Ahead of Derek from Mayday Parade joining us on The Jon Mahon Show on Monday May 15th the band released a brand new single ‘More Like A Crash’
This is the band’s first new music since the release of the 2021 LP What It Means to Fall Apart. This summer they hit the road for a massive run of tour dates in the US, playing shows with friends including All Time Low and Yellowcard.
After fulfilling their most recent record deal with the release of their seventh studio album What It Means To Fall Apart, Mayday Parade decided to take things into their own hands so they could operate on their own terms and timeline. It’s a space the band hasn’t fully existed in since their self-released debut EP, which sold 50,000 copies without the support of a label.
The pivot brings some much needed flexibility in support of their personal lives. “It’s extremely exciting and terrifying all at the same time” shares Jake Bundrick. “There’s obviously a lot more freedom and control,” adds Alex Garcia. That freedom, as Jeremy Lenzo explains it, will allow them to “release new music more consistently as opposed to dropping an album every couple of years.” As such he continues, “we’re going into this with the mindset that each song really needs to stand on its own.”
