Mayday Parade Share New Single ‘More Like A Crash’

Mayday Parade have shared their new song “More Like a Crash,” their first new music since 2021’s What It Means to Fall Apart.

Digging into the meaning of the song, Alex Garcia said it’s “about the chaos and pain of endings, especially regarding personal relationships. Despite how beautiful something could be at one time, often at its end there’s just bad feelings and a sense of being lost in the wreckage.”

This marks an exciting time for Mayday Parade who are now operating independently and plan to release more music soon. “It’s extremely exciting and terrifying all at the same time” shares Jake Bundrick. “There’s obviously a lot more freedom and control,” adds Garcia.

That freedom, as Jeremy Lenzo explains it, will allow them to “release new music more consistently as opposed to dropping an album every couple of years.” As such he continues, “we’re going into this with the mindset that each song really needs to stand on its own.” It also allows the band to take their time when it comes to recording and releasing music.

“We always stew on the songs we’re working on to make sure they’re ready to be recorded,” explains Lenzo, “so sometimes you end up sitting on an idea for a while until it comes to fruition. “Sonically,” shares Bundrick. “I wanted energy from this new batch that still felt angsty but had our emotional flair to them. It’s been a while since we’ve put out some uptempo songs and that was important to me.”

Mayday Parade will hit the road with All Time Low later this month. They also gave festival appearances at Hangout, Louder Than Life, and Aftershock booked for this summer. Check out all their dates here.
