Editors’ Notes

Mayday Parade steps up its game with an eponymous third studio album that surpasses its critically acclaimed debut LP, A Lesson in Romantics. Where the band’s sophomore album featured outside songwriters, this time it insisted on crafting its own tunes and keeping the overall sound organic and live. “Oh Well, Oh Well” opens as lonely piano notes and strings play under Derek Sanders’ heartbroken inflections; then a hi-hat countoff detonates the song into a snarling, rocking emo epic. “No Heroes Allowed” follows, boasting one of the album’s best guitar solos and dynamically doubled vocals. Although guitarist/backing vocalist Jason Lancaster left the band for personal reasons following its first album, vestiges of his guitar and singing style haunt the standout power ballad “When You See My Friends.” The heartfelt “Happy Endings Are Stories That Haven't Ended Yet” closes with old-school emo balladry. Intimate acoustic versions of “When You See My Friends” and “Oh Well, Oh Well” are bonus tracks.

Customer Reviews

If Happy Endings Are Stories That Haven

Mayday Parade has delivered an album straight from their core, one that shows exactly what they slightly departed from in their last album; pure heart and powerful lyrics and music that drives straight to your soul. They deliver more true masterpieces (such as Terrible Things and When You See My Friends, and now Stay) that you simply can't find another song to listen to after, because nothing else can compare. I'd go as far as to say it trumps Go Radio's album, but mostly because *this* sounds like the Mayday Parade we all know and love.

If Happy Endings Are Stories That Haven't Ended Yet, Then I'm Ecstatic.

Maydays greatest album!

I own every Mayday Parade CD, and this one by far has to be the best one i've heard yet. Catchy guitar, amazing lyrics, everything I look for in a band, Mayday Parade has in this album. Words can't describe how I feel when I hear this CD, but it feels as if they wrote it just for me, and im not the only one who feels it, and its why Mayday Parade is such an amazing band!
