    Mayday Parade have announced some Anywhere But Here 10 year anniversary shows.


    NEW YORK, NY (September 3, 2019) – Alternative mainstay Mayday Parade will celebrate the 10 Year Anniversary of their sophomore album Anywhere But Here with a select run of headlining shows performing the album in its entirety this November! They’ll start with a hometown performance in Tallahassee, FL (11/3) followed by dates in Sayreville, NJ (11/9), Boston, MA (11/13), Chicago, IL (11/16) and Los Angeles, CA (11/22). Full dates can be found below.
    “Stoked to announce five special shows in honor of our second record Anywhere But Here which is in its 10th year of release! We are excited to share and reminisce with our long-time fans!”
    -Brooks Betts of Mayday Parade

    VIP tickets will be on sale tomorrow, Sept. 4th at 1pm ET followed by general on-sale this Friday, Sept. 6th at 10AM local time. VIP Packages include early entry, a photo opp, limited edition merch items and a pizza party meet and greet with the band! All tickets can be purchased via

    Anywhere But Here was produced by David Bendeth (Paramore, Bruce Hornsby) and released on October 6th, 2019 (Atlantic Records). It was the first album by the band to make debuts across several Billboard charts (#31 Billboard 200, #8 Alternative Albums) and spawned several successful singles including “The Silence” and “Kids in Love” that went into regular rotation at radio & MTV. Though the album pre-dates the rise of Spotify and Apple Music, Anywhere But Here has racked up over 88 million plays on the two platforms, proving itself a lasting fan favorite.

    Last month, Mayday Parade wrapped up their headlining slot on the inaugural run of Sad Summer Festival alongside The Maine, The Wonder Years, and State Champs, plus performed to massive crowds on the main stage at Reading & Leeds Festival after a brief tour of Europe. The band continues to support their stellar 2018 LP Sunnyland (Rise Records) and fans can expect more dates to be announced soon!

    this album is super underrated. Not my favorite by them but there are a bunch of great songs on it. I think if this album would've been released a few years earlier, it would've been huge

    Big fan of these guys.
    LOR is an absolute classic and sunnyland was good.
    That said, I don't love this one.

    Album is underrated for what it is. Maydays mix with writing some by themselves and with other writers. It's a mixed record and has some of the best songs, and most puzzling they've done.

    I think this is one of their best albums. Does anyone else think their last few albums have been weak? They just don't have the hooks that this album and Lesson in Romantics do.

    Anywhere But Here anniversary shows, but with a setlist comprising only of Jamie All Over and Black Cat on loop.

    Synthetic apparitions of not being lonely

    I thought the general consensus was that the band didn't really like this record?

    Surprise, Surprise Prestigious

    Here to enter the echo chamber of this album is underrated, Sunnyland is a "bop", and yeah they just know what they're doing right now.
  16. I saw them like 5+ times during this album cycle but holy nostalgia

    hopelessly yours, Alabama

    Now THAT is a throwback. Are S&S the same band they were in 2007? I always loved Daniel's voice but they never put out much and I lost track of them.

    I know Daniel and the guitarist stephen are still in it. Then they have a guy from red Oak Collective out of Orlando I think. Not sure about the others. I know they played some shows with the old yellowcard drummer but I don’t know if he still is in
