MAYDAY PARADE 

RELEASES “FIRST TRAIN” VIDEO FEATURING J. GAVEN WILDE 

NEW EP OUT OF HERE  VIA RISE RECORDS

Mayday Parade have released the video for new single “First Train” to celebrate the release of their new EP Out of Here which is out via Rise Records. Directed by Scott Hansen, the video features rising star J. Gaven Wilde (The Righteous Gemstones, Halloween Kills, Stanger Things) as the protagonist who decides to take on his bully. “First Train is about not getting weighed down by the negative things in your life,” frontman Derek Sanders said. “It’s about having the power to move forward and become whatever you want to be.”

“First Train” echoes the message of the anthemic “Lighten Up Kid” which dropped in September along with the EP announcement. “’Lighten Up Kid’ is about trying to find yourself and the strength to keep fighting for what you believe in,” said drummer Jake Bundrick. “I Can Only Hope” rounds out the EP and touches on loss and pain in a way that may resonate deeply for many in the time of COVD-19. It also comes from a deeply personal place for Bundrick: “Simply put, it’s about my father. He recently had some medical issues in Georgia and being that I live in California, I felt so far away. The song is about being terrified. It’s about that uncertainty whether someone will pull through something so difficult. It’s about the unknown that follows all of it and never forgetting the sounds or senses of the moment when you received the news.” 

The EP was recorded in early March with longtime collaborators Zack Odom and Kenneth Mount and follows the band’s 6th full-length LP SunnylandA band known for their high-energy and impressive live shows, 2020 has met the band with a marked change of pace and will see the longest stretch in their 15-year career without performing a show. The band has already been announced for several festivals across the globe in 2021 and will soon be announcing special live streaming performances taking place throughout the fall.
