Pop punk outfit Mayday Parade dropped their third album earlier this week.
The eponymous effort was co-produced by Zack Odom and Kenneth Mount, and marks a return to their songwriting roots; the entire album was self-written in a collaborative effort by the five band mates. The 12-song collection transpired through careful introspection and it echoes the musicians’ maturation over the two years since their second album, Anywhere But Here. The band chose to pen each of the songs themselves, making the album perhaps their most personal to date, complete with relatable lyrics and their undeniable charm.
In support of Mayday Parade, the band recently announced a nationwide headlining tour, kicking off Oct. 13.
