Mayday Parade

MTV has premiered Mayday Parade's new music video for their hit-single "Stay" which comes off their latest self-titled album, that debuted at #12 on the Billboard Top 200.

The band is wrapping up a European tour and will head back to the US to gear up for the 2012 Warped Tour, where they will share the stage with bands such as The Used, Rise Against, Taking Back Sunday, and many more.

Exclusive: Mayday Parade interview

The video for "Stay" is an emotional ride through the pain and fear of losing a loved one, as front-man Derek Sanders delivers a powerful performance. The song itself is a ballad that anyone can relate to and the video beautifully compliments that.

MTV declares, "some heart-touching string arrangements gives the track that 'I Don't Want to Miss a Thing' blockbuster quality". Make sure you've got some tissues ready for this one (link below)!

Mayday Parade has been touring in support of their hugely successful self-titled album (out now on ILG), whose #12 debut on Billboard's Top 200 marked a career high chart position as well as career high sales numbers. The album also reached #5 on iTunes' Album Chart on release day. The achievement is significant, as it marks a 30% increase in sales from their last career high, 2009's Anywhere But Here (Atlantic). Critics are in agreement, with Alternative Press awarding the album 3.5 out of 4 stars, while MTV's Buzzworthy Blog praises their "more holistic approach to songwriting," and AbsolutePunk loves their "solid pop-rock with massive hooks."

Mayday Parade first burst onto the scene with their 2007 debut A Lesson in Romantics which received immense praise from critics and fans alike. AbsolutePunk claimed it was sure to become "one of your most played [albums] of the summer." It went on to sell more than 170,000 copies and reached the Top Ten on the Billboard Heatseekers chart.

Mayday Parade is vocalist/piano Derek Sanders, bassist Jeremy Lenzo, guitarists Alex Garcia and Brooks Betts and drummer/vocalist Jake Bundrick.

Mayday Parade's Self-Titled CD is now available online at iTunes & Amazon.
