 MAYDAY PARADE has released “Piece Of Your Heart,” the first song from their upcoming album, SUNNYLAND – click HERE to watch the video.

Set for a June 15th release, SUNNYLAND is the band’s 6th studio album and first with Rise Records. Fans who pre-order the album by clicking HERE will receive “Piece Of Your Heart” as an instant download.

“’Piece Of Your Heart’ is a song about true love,” says lead vocalist Derek Sanders. “The video turned out very sweet – it gives me a warm feeling. Thanks for checking it out!”

“’Piece Of Your Heart’ came into the batch of songs pretty late in the game,” adds guitarist Alex Garcia. “I think as we were going through pre-production with (producers) Zack (Odom)and Ken (Mount). I remember hearing the chorus and definitely being floored by it. As we worked on it more and more, it really started to shine and felt so good. It’s crazy how sometimes things just really click when you’re working on music.”

The Tallahassee, Florida-based quintet (rounded out by bassist/vocalist Jeremy Lenzo, guitarist Brooks Betts and drummer/vocalist Jake Bundrick) recorded this follow-up to 2015’s Black Lines with longtime producers Zack Odom and Kenneth Mount, and for the first time, also teamed with Grammy nominated producer John Feldmann (blink-182, Panic! At the Disco) and Howard Benson (Of Mice & Men, My Chemical Romance). The result is an album built on impassioned vocals, sing-along choruses, and deeply heartfelt lyrics.

The album’s title comes from an abandoned hospital where the band members hung out as  teenagers. “The hospital shut down sometime in the mid-’80s but then it just stayed there for decades,” says Sanders. “It was a super-creepy place—it was overgrown with vines, and still had some of the hospital beds and IV stands—but we have all these good memories of hanging out there when we were younger.”

A few days after the album’s release, Mayday Parade will hit the road to headline this year’s final Warped Tour, which kicks off June 21st in Pomona, CA (see itinerary below). The band actually got their start selling CDs in a Warped Tour parking lot, then went on to headline the tour five times.

“Warped Tour has been an integral part of any success we’ve had,” says Bundrick. “We cut our teeth grinding in ‘06, selling our EP to the line and that experience definitely defined the band. I’m sad that it’s ending but grateful to be part of the last one and more importantly to have experienced those endless summer days in parking lots as a small part of that crazy tour.”

Over the course of the last 10 years, Mayday Parade has sold more than a million albums. Four of their releases have sold over 100,000 units each, with their most successful album (2007’s A Lesson In Romantics) selling more than a half-million copies.  They have 60+ videos on YouTube with over 1 million views, and their songs have amassed over 350 million streams in the US alone.
