Derek Sanders, the long-adored vocalist of Tallahassee emo/alternative band, Mayday Parade, has released “But Lauren,” the second single from his debut solo EP, My Rock and Roll Heart, out this Friday, February 14 via Rise Records.Listen to the track HERE, and watch the accompanying music video HERE. Sanders’ heartfelt cover of the song anchors the EP and has a special meaning to him. He recorded his version of the track as a Valentine’s Day present to his wife in 2017, which he thought would make for an excellent gift considering the two had been listening to the song since high school, as well as the fact that his wife shares its namesake. “I really only intended for her to hear it,” remembers Sanders, “but it snowballed from there.” 

The track listing of My Rock and Roll Heart is all music that Sanders loved as a teenager, and is comprised of five acoustic covers of tracks by Jimmy Eat World, Something Corporate, Saves The Day, The Juliana Theory, and Goodbye Love. “All of the songs on the EP are ones I was listening to at 15 or 16 years old. I’ve been in so many bands since then, and it’s cool to go back to playing acoustic and singing the way it all started,” he adds.

 In celebration of the new EP, Sanders will play a limited headline run of shows in the U.S. The trek kicks off this Saturday, February 15 at Will’s Pub in Orlando, followed by two additional dates in Atlanta and Nashville. A full itinerary is included below, and tickets are on sale now HERE.
