Sounds like Florida emo pop heroes Mayday Parade are stealing our hearts again this year like they did with ‘Miserable At Best’ all those years ago! Since unveiling ‘Kids of Summer’ and ‘Bad At Love’, the band are back to channelling our emotions with catchy yet heartfelt emotive rock anthems that’ll be up your alley if you’ve been a longtime Mayday fan.
To celebrate the band’s forthcoming new album, What It Means to Fall Apart coming at us on November 19 through Rise Records, the boys have just revealed their third new track this year titled ‘One For the Rocks and One For the Scary’. Luring us in with soft guitar strums, vocalist Derek Sanders uplifts our emotions as a way of reminding us that the best things in life take time to bloom. The melodies increase dramatically towards the end, making for a moshworthy rock soundtrack.
Oh boy. Yeah, I think it might just be my favourite song released by Mayday Parade this year. It’s an absolutely stunning song to listen to, which has increased my excitement tenfold for the album now!
