MAYDAY PARADE is co-headlining the Avalon in Los Angeles on October 14th and the Glass House in Pomona on October 15th to promote their upcoming album Anywhere But Here.
~ Infectious rockers MAYDAY PARADE will herald the release of their major label debut “Anywhere But Here” with a nearly non-stop tour schedule, including a co-headlining slot on Alternative Press’ tour “The Fall Ball ’09” alongside The Academy Is…, Set Your Goals, The Secret Handshake, and You Me At Six.
~ “Anywhere But Here” drops everywhere on October 6th and was produced by David Bendeth (Paramore, All Time Low). ~ The band’s 2007 breakthrough debut “A Lesson In Romantics” made a top 10 debut on Billboard’s “Top Heatseekers” chart on its way to sales exceeding 100,000.
~ The New York Post’s Maxine Sheen called the album “emotionally charged” and “vicariously thrilling,” while AOL Music’s “PopEater” blog declared, “Mayday Parade writes songs that bring out the addict in all of us. Their catchy pop vocals, slap-in-the-face lyrics and bright, uptempo melodies are enough to send you to rehab for OD'ing on their debut album.”
~ MAYDAY PARADE has toured as headliners; on multi-artist bills such as the “Compromising of Integrity, Morality, and Principles in Exchange for Money Tour” alongside All Time Low, The Maine, and Every Avenue; and on such festival roadshows as the Vans Warped Tour and the UK’s Give It A Name.
~ MAYDAY PARADE is: Derek Sanders – vocals * Jeremy Lenzo – bass/vocals * Brooks Betts – guitar * Jake Bundrick – drums/vocals * Alex Garcia – guitar.
