Mayday Parade is an emo-tinged pop/rock band from Tallahassee, Florida. Like many bands of its ilk, Mayday Parade combines post punk energy and punk rock tempos with sensitive, emotive songwriting and slick, pop-influenced production. Big, anthemic choruses driven by distorted electric guitars and propulsive drumming are regular song features. Mayday Parade formed in 2006 and was soon discovered by popular pop punk label, Fearless Records, before ultimately signing to Atlantic in 2009. With its new major label backing, the band has increased its notoriety amongst emo pop and alt rock circles, landing tours with The Academy Is... and slots at the Vans Warped Tour.
