Set for a June 15th release, SUNNYLAND is Mayday Parade’s 6th studio album and first with Rise Records.

The Tallahassee, Florida-based quintet (rounded out by bassist/vocalist Jeremy Lenzo, guitarist Brooks Betts and drummer/vocalist Jake Bundrick) recorded this follow-up to 2015’s 'Black Lines' with longtime producers Zack Odom and Kenneth Mount, and for the first time, also teamed with Grammy nominated producer John Feldmann (blink-182, Panic! At the Disco) and Howard Benson (Of Mice & Men, My Chemical Romance). The result is an album built on impassioned vocals, sing-along choruses, and deeply heartfelt lyrics.
 
The album’s title comes from an abandoned hospital where the band members hung out as  teenagers. “The hospital shut down sometime in the mid-’80s but then it just stayed there for decades” says Sanders “It was a super-creepy place—it was overgrown with vines, and still had some of the hospital beds and IV stands—but we have all these good memories of hanging out there when we were younger."
