Mayday Parade Release New Track To Mark The Ten Year Anniversary of Their First EP


Florida pop punk heroes Mayday Parade have release a new track ‘The Problem With The Big Picture Is That It’s Hard To See‘ to celebrate ten years since they released their very first EP.

The EP, titled ‘Tales Told By Dead Friends‘, was released in 2006 and sold over 50,000 copies without any label support. Since then the boys have gone on to release five full length albums and another EP. You can check out the new track below.

Long live Mayday Parade.

Pop Punk’s Latest Cool Kids; “Boston Manor”

Boston Manor

Northern pop punkers Boston Manor have been causing quite a stir recently. Hailing from Blackpool in the UK, the lads are thrashing out some hook-laden pop punk but their northern twang provides a somewhat refreshing twist on often generic vocals.

The boys have recently had some well-received exposure supporting Moose Blood on their recent international tour. Currently signed to Pure Noise Records, these guys are causing waves in all the right places, and you only have to listen to their latest record ‘Lead Feet‘ to see why.

Their debut LP ‘Be Nothing‘ is now available and is well worth a listen. We fully expect these guys to be topping the festival line-ups and jumping your ear sockets a lot more in 2017.

Taking Back Sunday Reveal New Track “You Can’t Look Back” – Plus All We Know About The New Album So Far

It’s insane and brilliant from all angles to be on the brink of a seventh…we’ll just say that again….SEVENTH album from Taking Back Sunday. Although they’re not the only band of their generation to still be knocking about, they are by far one of the most relentless, interchangeable and progressive with their sound.

The last two releases ‘Happiness Is‘ (2014) and the self-titled ‘Taking Back Sunday‘ (2011) saw vast style differences and influences compared to their timeless early work and even to their third and forth albums. Not only this, they have had some band member switches along to way too. They seem to be unstoppable, and if previous history is anything to go by we can tell you for free that we are damn excited.

The new album ‘Tidal Wave‘ will drop on 16th September on Hopeless Records, and here’s what we know so far.

⚡   The title ‘Tidal Wave’ is taken from the previous single of the same name. Adam spoke to Entertainment Weekly back in June this year and stated,

“Even throughout each song on the record there are a lot of references to water, that’s why it seems like that title kept poking its neck out.”

⚡   The album has a lot more American rock influences. In the same interview Lazzara explains how the new album is influenced a lot more by classic American rock, such as Tom Petty and Bryan Adams.

⚡   New track ‘Can’t Look Back‘ and it’s corresponding music video were released on 23rd August by Hopeless Records. Oh boy is it different!

It seems some people are not too keen on the more Americana-sounding vibe that runs through the new material. In all honesty, when we first heard it we thought it could be a Bon Jovi cover. The similarities to Don Henley’s ‘Boys of Summer’ are remarkable.

You can check out ‘Can’t Look Back’ below.

⚡   Tidal Wave can be pre-ordered in the UK from Banquet Records. The artwork is pretty interesting.
