Tallahassee-based Mayday Parade is back with its latest single, “More Like A Crash.” This marks their first release since their 2021 album What It Means to Fall Apart. The song delves into the chaos and pain of endings, particularly in personal relationships, capturing the sense of being lost in the wreckage.

After fulfilling their record deal, Mayday Parade decided to take control of their music careers, operating on their own terms and timeline. This move brings them back to a space they haven’t fully occupied since their self-released debut EP. This newfound flexibility allows the band to prioritize their personal lives while providing more freedom and control over their music. They aim to release new music more consistently rather than dropping albums every few years, giving each song the opportunity to stand on its own.

Mayday Parade has been meticulous in selecting which songs to record and release. They take their time, ensuring that each track is ready before entering the studio. According to Jeremy Lenzo, they sometimes sit on ideas until they fully develop. The band wanted their new material to have an energetic and angsty feel, while still showcasing their emotional flair.
