Mayday Parade Tickets for Sale
Mayday Parade has been delivering Emo ballads since 2006 when the remnants of Kid Named Chicago and Defining Moment joined forces. Within the year they recorded and released Tales Told by Dead Friends. The EP became a huge hit considering its utter lack of any support whatsoever. After selling 20,000 copies the group joined a few national tours, playing with Brandston and Melee on one and Plain White Tees on another. The group is fortunate to have attached themselves to these tours. The exposure helped them sell concert tickets on their own.
The group is made up of Derek Sanders on the keyboard and as the lead singer, Jeremy Lenzo on the bass guitar and backing vocals, Alex Garcia on rhythm guitar, Brooks Betts on lead guitar, and Jake Bundrick on drums, percussion, and backing vocals.
The EP and the tour helped Mayday Parade secure a record contract with Fearless Records that very same year they organized. By January 2007 the new group recorded its first full-length studio album, A Lesson in Romantics. This should have been an exciting time for the group but the original lead singer, Jason Lancaster left citing personal reasons and alluding to conflict within the band regarding creative credit.
Mayday Parade soldiered on, joining the Vans Warped Tour in the summer of 2007 and crossing the Atlantic to play in the UK for the first time. The group kept on touring to promote their first album, performing on the Vans Warped Tour the next year as well. Eventually the group got back in the studio.
From December 2008 to June 2009 they recorded and reworked material until the finished package, an album entitled Anywhere but Here. The album remained under wraps for six months, finally hitting the shelves on August 11, 2009. The first single released was The Silence and the second was Kids in Love.
In addition to releasing a new album, Mayday Parade will be embarking on its first headlining tour of any sort, co-headlining the 2009 Fall Ball tour with You Me At Six, The Secret Handshake, Set Your Goals, and The Academy Is…
