Editorial Reviews

After selling over 130,000 copies of their 2007 Fearless Records debut full length album 'A Lesson In Romantics', over 35,000 copies sold of 'Tales Told By Dead Friends' EP, and non stop touring with bands such as All Time Low, The Maine, Metro Station, and others while on the 2008 Vans Warped Tour; Mayday Parade is gearing up for their major label debut on Fearless/Atlantic Records with the release of 'Anywhere But Here' on October 6th. The album's title track premiered on July 29th on the band's Myspace and has already garnered a huge buzz leading into their first single 'The Silence'.

Anywhere But Here is second full-length album from alternative rock band Mayday Parade. The Tallahassee-based group has always been set apart from others in its genre for its heartfelt vocals, well-written lyrics, and general originality. After the success of their first album, A Lesson in Romantics--the cleverly-versed follow up to the EP, Tales Told by Dead Friends--Mayday Parade was highly praised by even those who like to complain about the sameness of most alternative bands. Mayday Parade was a different thing altogether, and in a very good way. In this second album, Mayday keeps its heartbreaking vocals, but loses something in the process of rearranging itself to a broader audience.

As most fans will know, this album marks the first time Mayday Parade has had to function without the lyrical support of Jason Lancaster, and the results are somewhat mixed. As expected, the lyrics are considerably less witty and poetic and sound somewhat less sincere as a result. However, frontman Derek Sanders' voice is so earnest (and, in this album, has matured to a smooth but still unique tone)that you still "feel" the songs. The instrumentals flow very nicely, and the composition is as good as ever, but the fact remains that without Lancaster, Mayday Parade is simply a different band. I still love them, and the band still ranks as one of my absolute favorites, but I must admit that I prefer their style from A Lesson in Romantics and the Tales Told By Dead Friends EP. Their sound was fresh and individual, whereas in Anywhere But Here the band seems to be following a preset pattern laid out for most typical alternative bands. The Silence and Get Up are both tracks that sound unremarkable and forgettable.

Other than absolutely loving the music, the first thing that made an impression on me concerning Mayday Parade's "A Lesson In Romantics" album was the length of some of their song titles...14, 15, even 22 words long. Most of the songs didn't have a set-in-stone structure to them, yet the soaring melodies flowed so effortlessly, the music was so powerful, the vocals were performed so passionately and the lyrics were such that they made you think real hard (and the thinking was well worth it)... that after all was said and done, I have to rate that album as my favorite alternative/punk/emo record ever.

Immediately after discovering it, I wanted more! I wanted it to go on and on forever...it was (and still is) that good. So finally, Mayday puts out "Anywhere But Here", partnering with a major label for the first time, and my excitement upon hearing the news was over the top. Now, I have to admit, I never took much time digging into the specifics of who the band members were, and I don't have the means to see them in concert. All I had were these songs I had downloaded and were playing the heck out of.

Eventually I found out that shortly after the recording of it, one of the lead singers, Jason Lancaster, had left the band. That scared me for the future of this band, because another highlight of that album was the flawless intertwining of the two lead vocalists. Since I had no physical copy, I had no idea that Jason's was the voice I had fallen in love with...so distinctive, so passionate, so incredible! That's not to put down Derek Sanders (the other lead vocalist), because he's awesome too...just not quite the emotive singer Jason is.

I've listened to this new one several times now, and while it's still good, it doesn't approach the quality of "A Lesson...".

Mayday parade is one of my favorite bands and this in my opinion their best album ever. I have Black Lines and their self titled album as well and all are really good but this their gem. The sound, The Lyrics everything about is so good. My favorite song is Get Up because its a blast to listen to and its got a sweet guitar sound. The whole album is awesome and overall is a solid 100 out of 10.

the cd is a great one, and wasnt damged in shipping however, the cd case was greatly damged, big scratch on the front and the inside ruined, i do know the cds go through a lot through the shipping process, but i very much like to have my cds in original cases in good condition for my collection, and this case being so damged has greatly upset me.

Excellent album exactly what you would expect from this extraordinary band. Like everyone of their cds you will go through periods were you love a different song more than any other. Right now "Kids In Love" trumps all but what will next week bring.

I absolutely love this album, like all Mayday Parade albums. I bought this for a friend for Christmas, we've been huge Mayday Parade fans for a long while now. This is only adding to the addiction. I wish I could be keeping this album for myself but I know my friend will love it even more!

The new Mayday Parade cd is so amazing. I haven't even had it for a full day and I love it. The vocals are beautiful. Everyone is complaining about Jason leaving... But I think the band is still awesome. The lyrics are still meaningful and they are still very emotional. I recommend picking this cd up. My favorite song is I Swear This Time I Mean It.

I'm a huge Mayday Parade fan. <3
