Mayday Parade has been blessing our radio waves with music for 15 years (I know, we cried about it, too!) It’s hard to believe we’ve been stanning them so long! Over the years, we have gotten some of the most UNBELIEVABLE music.
This year, the year that kind of sucks (except for all the new music we’ve been getting), Mayday Parade has decided to release a new EP! Out Of Here is due to release October 16th, and we’re impatiently waiting for its release. We’re already sure it’s going to blow our minds!
How do we know? Well, we’re glad you asked! Along with an EP announcement, the band has released the first single from the EP as well! ‘Lighten Up Kid’ is a track about self-love and finding confidence within. About the song, Jake Bundrick (Mayday’s drummer) had this to say:
‘Lighten Up Kid’ is about trying to find yourself and the strength to keep fighting for what you believe in. It’s about being or feeling cut down and hung out to dry but standing up for yourself in the end.

As usual, the track is catchy and easy to fall in love with, just like every other Mayday Parade song. It’s one of those songs that tug on the heartstrings of relatability, and with its powerhouse instrumentals and beats, it’s no secret as to why we expect this to be a hit song. Check out the track below, and see for yourself!
This song is just evidence that this new EP is about to set 2020 and the music industry ablaze. Mayday Parade never fails to deliver up one-of-a-kind, poetic, emotional boos that make our heads whirl in excitement. It’s no surprise we’ve been stanning them for the past 15 years, and hopefully the next 15, too!
And, don’t forget to pre-order the EP here. It’s going to send your musical tastebuds into overdrive!
