The guys in Tallahassee, Fla.-based Mayday Parade first came together in the early 2000s. At the time, they were just a group of dudes practicing in a warehouse, but since then the crew has blossomed into a killer pop-punk crew of BFFs. “We understand each other more now and can practically predict what each of us are trying to do musically,” says drummer Jake Bundrick. “It’s nice to have come this far and still remain good friends. Believe it or not, that’s hard to do.” Lyrically, the band has evolved from their 2006 EP Tales Told By Dead Friends to their most recent 2013 record Monsters in the Closet, as the boys in Mayday Parade matured — one member even has a young child. In fact, one of the driving themes behind their new music is the idea that we are all in this together, and, well, that’s a comforting thought. “I just want people to realize they’re not alone in life. Both bad and good things happen to everyone,” Bundrick says. —Kalyn Oyer TUESDAY
