Sunnyland was released on June 15th, 2018 via Rise Records and is the band’s sixth studio album, taking its name from an abandoned hospital where the band – DerekSanders(vocals), JeremyLenzo (bass), AlexGarcia (guitar), BrooksBetts (guitar), JakeBundrick (drums) – used to sneak in to explore as teenagers. The album debuted at #7 and#9 on Billboard’s Alternative and Independent Albums charts, respectively.
Recorded with longtime producers ZackOdom and KennethMount with additional production from Grammy-nominated producer JohnFeldmann (blink-182, Panic! At the Disco) and HowardBenson (Of Mice & Men, My Chemical Romance), Sunnylandmarks one of the most prolific creative periods in Mayday Parade’s decade-plus history – all five members contributed songwriting with upwards of 80 songs coming out of the album’s writing sessions. Ranging from punk fury to folk-tinged ballads, meditations on love and loss to anger over the 2016 election, the 13 songs that made the cut for Sunnyland are among the band’s finest to date.
Earlier this month, the band wrapped up a headlining slot on this summer’s final nationwide Van’s Warped Tour, which they have headlined several times. Road warriors in the truest sense, Mayday Parade have played thousands of shows and festivals includingRiotFest, SlamDunk, and Soundwave globally, translating into an incredibly devoted worldwide following and over 1.1 million albums sold.
Mayday Parade is thrilled to bring Sunnyland on the road this fall. For full dates, see below and for tickets and the most up to date information, please visit www.maydayparade.com.
