(Clarion Call) Mayday Parade are excited for the release of their newest single "Got Me All Wrong", a full throttle power pop anthem just in time for the height of summer. The song is out today with an accompanying visualizer, and follows their previous single "More Like A Crash" released earlier this spring.

"Got Me All Wrong" arrives as Mayday Parade continue their journey on a massive run of tour dates, with upcoming shows across the United States that see them playing with Yellowcard, Story Of The Year, This Wild Life and Anberlin. The band also recently announced shows in Australia and The Philippines.

"'Got Me All Wrong' is about falling hard for someone but the other person isn't on the same page. I met my wife on Warped Tour and the song is roughly about that. It didn't happen immediately like I wanted but it eventually did and that's what the song is about." - Jake Bundrick

After fulfilling their most recent record deal with the release of their seventh studio album What It Means To Fall Apart, Mayday Parade decided to take things into their own hands so they could operate on their own terms and timeline. It's a space the band hasn't fully existed in since their self-released debut EP, which sold 50,000 copies without the support of a label. The pivot brings some much needed flexibility in support of their personal lives. "It's extremely exciting and terrifying all at the same time" shares Jake Bundrick. "There's obviously a lot more freedom and control," adds Alex Garcia. That freedom, as Jeremy Lenzo explains it, will allow them to "release new music more consistently as opposed to dropping an album every couple of years." As such he continues, "we're going into this with the mindset that each song really needs to stand on its own."

With that in mind, the band have taken their time when it comes to deciding what to record and release. "We always stew on the songs we're working on to make sure they're ready to be recorded," explains Lenzo, "so sometimes you end up sitting on an idea for a while until it comes to fruition. "Sonically," shares Bundrick. "I wanted energy from this new batch that still felt angsty but had our emotional flair to them. It's been a while since we've put out some uptempo songs and that was important to me."

The forthcoming releases and summer tour marks the latest chapter in the long history for the beloved Tallahassee band, who are approaching nearly two decades of playing and releasing music together. Such longevity is a feat in and of itself, and one the band doesn't take for granted. "We started this band when we were all fresh out of highschool," shares Lenzo. "I think a large part of why we are all still here is that we have been friends most of our lives, even before the band." Garcia agrees, noting that "this is everyone's full time job and passion. We all love playing music, so the fire is still alive. We have created something important to us and it's imperative that we maintain it by giving it the requisite attention."

Mayday Parade can't wait to share that enthusiasm with their fans this summer as they release new music and hit the road for an extensive tour. "We all feel really good about these new songs and are excited to see the fan's reaction to them" shares Garcia. "It's always fun to be out on tour in the summer, there's always such a great energy and I'm excited that Mayday will be part of people's experience this season."
