Artist Profile: Mayday Parade

Mayday Parade is a band i recently found that has funky names for their songs like "Id Hate To Be You When People Find Out What This Song Is About" or "You Be the Anchor that Keeps My Feet on the Ground, Ill Be the Wings That Keep Your Heart In the Clouds". Really long titles but they totally grab your attention.

The band began in Tallahassee, Florida and has been playing for the past 4 years. They have a unique brand of pop-inflected punk rock, that they have been perfecting throughout the years. Their producer, David Bendeth, has worked with bands such as Paramore and Underoath, meshes perfectly with the band members because he understands the type of energy they are looking for and what their goals are. Something else that makes this band unique is that the band as a group works together in the composition of their tracks and chooses which songs go into the record or not. Their most popular albums have been " A Lesson In Romantics" and " Anywhere But Here".

Band Members:
Vocalist/keyboardist: Derek Sanders
Bassist: Jeremy Lezno
Guitarists:Alex Garcia and Brooks Betts
Drummer: Jake Bundrick

I really encourage you to check out this band if you like Paramore, The Maine, or any other punk/pop band. I personally loved them from the moment I first heard "Id Hate to Be You When People Find Out What This Song Is About" and since then have been finding most of their songs like my kind of music. Here's a video of another of their songs, I hope you check them out and enjoy!
