Tallahassee, FL five-piece Mayday Parade released their self-titled album in 2011. But this self-titled full-length is not their first... The band have been around since 2005 and 'Mayday Parade' is the successor to their major label release 'Anywhere But Here' and debut album 'A Lesson In Romantics'. 'Mayday Parade', the album, is the band (Derek Sanders, Brooks Betts, Jeremy Lenzo, Alex Garcia and Jake Bundrick) having learnt exactly who they are and what they want. They're getting wiser both within the music industry and outside of it. We caught up with vocalist Derek Sanders who tells us how he thinks music is alive and well, what he last did that was outside of his comfort zone, how he'd like to make the world a better place and what exactly is too crucial to ignore.

We originally did this interview for our cruelty-free sister-site, SaveScream.com, but thought we'd post it here too for anyone that doesn't check that site out.
