We’ve been getting a lot of Mayday Parade as of late and we’re not complaining!
To get ready for their upcoming full-length album, What It Means To Fall Apart, Mayday Parade have been releasing some amazing tracks: ‘Kids At Summer,’ ‘Bad At Love,’ and their latest release ‘One For The Rocks And One For The Scary.’ Whether it’s about their lovely Warped Tour days, taking a look at oneself, or about how love and time are precious, the band brings their oh so lovely sound, making us very excited about the upcoming album.
‘One For The Rocks And One For The Scary’ is about “Making the most of the time we have with the people with love,” and if you are a fan of the band, you know it isn’t the first time the band has made a song regarding this topic. Their best hits include that topic and ‘One For the Rocks And For The Scary’ is one of those hits.
This track really gives off that nostalgic feeling of old Mayday tracks. You know the ones we are talking about, it starts off really calm and smooth, and then goes into a musical break, then reaches the peak of a grittier sound. Throw in some sad lyrics, and it’s the best kind of song out there. Since way back when, we’ve been obsessed with Derek and his vocals, and that will never change. But we can’t just talk about Derek, the whole band really makes Mayday Parade what it is. They all bring that sound we know and love and make this an amazing track. Literally, the instrumentals in the chorus have quickly become one of our favorites.
Don’t even get us started on the music video! It’s simple, yet there is a lot that happens. It tells a pretty straightforward story but leaves some things up for interpretation. It starts off chill, then things escalate into a screaming match, but don’t worry we end up with a happy ending for the two girls. Yes, the MV is very much gay, which makes us love it even more. You can watch the MV down below!
- ‘Terrible Things’
- ‘I’d Hate To Be You When People Find Out What This Song Is About’
- ‘Miserable At Best’
These tracks are all different examples of time and love, tragic love stories that will always break us into many little bitty pieces.
