Filipino rock fans, get ready to defend pop-punk again as 28 Black, Lee Pipes and PULP Live World forge a formidable union to stage MAYDAY PARADE Live in Manila this October 15, 2016 at Samsung Hall, SM Aura, BGC, Taguig City. The American worldwide pop-punk sensation from Tallahassee, Florida is set to return to one of their most favorite countries in support of their fifth critically-acclaimed full-length album Black Lines. The band will be performing songs from their latest release such as “Letting Go,” “One of Them Will Destroy the Other” and “Keep in Mind, Transmogrification Is a New Technology” alongside fan favorites such as “Stay,” “Oh Well Oh Well,” “Miserable at Best” and “Jamie All Over,” among many others.
Mayday Parade is currently comprised of Brooks Betts (rhythm guitar), Jake Bundrick (drums), Alex Garcia (lead guitar), Jeremy Lenzo (bass) and charismatic lead vocalist Derek Sanders. They first made their breakthrough in 2006 when their self-released debut EP Tales Told by Dead Friends sold 50,000 copies in the US without any major label support. Since then, Mayday Parade has released one EP (Valdosta in 2011) and four albums: A Lesson in Romantics (2007, which peaked at Number 8 and Number 31 on Billboard’s Top Heatseekers and Independent Albums charts, respectively), Anywhere but Here (2009, which peaked at Number 31 on the Billboard 200), their self-titled album in 2011 (which peaked at Number 12, 2 and 84 on Billboard’s Top 200, Independent Albums and Australia charts, respectively) and Monsters in the Closet (which peaked at Numbers 10 and 2 on Billboard’s Top 200 and Independent Albums charts, respectively). Black Lines peaked at number 21 on the Billboard Top 200 and has topped the US Rock Albums chart.
In a past interview with PULP Magazine, Mayday Parade lead vocalist Derek Sanders professed his love for their Filipino fans. “I’m really not sure (I can accurately put it into words), but we are truly thankful for it,” says Derek. “Each time we’ve come over it’s been even better than the time before. Whatever the connection is, (I feel that) it is genuine and I hope we keep coming back for years and years to come.”
