Mayday Parade Return With Sunnyland
Formed from the ashes of Kid Named Chicago and Defining Moment, two celebrated Tallahassee bands, Mayday Parade's electric fusion of emo, pop and indie rock earned them a gold certification upon the release of their debut album A Lesson In Romantics. Thirteen years and five albums later, the sextet are gearing up for the mammoth North American 'Welcome To Sunnyland Tour' in support of their latest album Sunnyland, bringing along special guests William Ryan Key (former frontman of Yellowcard), Californian acoustic rock duo This Wild Life and rising rockers Oh, Weatherly on select dates.
Positioning themselves as a staple on the pop punk scene thanks to their relatable melancholy and emotional depth, Mayday Parade returns on fine form with Sunnyland. Focusing on the concepts of growing up and the inevitable heartbreak that follows, the album and its makers stay relevant by doing what they do best - connecting with their fans by making music that's from the heart. As such, the rock show veterans' live concerts are cathartic affairs where the audience lets loose and sings every lovelorn lyric at the top of their lungs.
