Mayday Parade's 'Monsters In The Closet': Exclusive Album Premiere
Florida-based pop punkers Mayday Parade are back with their brand new, fourth studio album "Monsters In the Closet," and Billboard has an exclusive sneak peak a day prior to its official release on Fearless Records.
Last month, Mayday Parade debuted the catchy, slick guitar rock of "Girls;" now you can stream the entire album below.
"This record is really special to us," says bassist/vocalist Jeremy Lenzo, who names "Last Night For A Table Of Two" as his favorite track. "I feel like everyone contributed equally in the writing, and really stepped up to bat when it came to instrumentation. I think it really shows on the record, and I'm very happy with the end result."
Mayday Parade have been going strong for the past seven years, constantly touring, and never taking a break of longer than four months to rest. That trend will continue this fall, when the band embarks on the 39-date Glamour Kills tour (beginning Oct. 11 in Jacksonville, FL) along with Man Overboard, Cartel, and Stages & Stereos.
Watch the official lyric video for "Girls" below:
After starting out in 2006 with the "Tales Told By Dead Friends" EP on Fearless Records, the band left for Atlantic for 2009's "Anywhere But Here." Their last album, 2011's self-titled effort, found them back home on Fearless and debuting at No. 12 on the Billboard 200. They've also been regulars in Fearless' "Punk Goes.." series (featuring compilations like "Punk Goes Pop" and "Punk Goes Classic Rock"), covering songs like Gotye and Kimbra's "Somebody That I Used to Know" and Jason Derülo's "In My Head."
