Mayday Parade is excited to officially release their new album Monsters In The Closet today. Described by Absolutepunk.net as "a monster of an album", the highly-anticipated new release is available digitally on iTunes and at Target for $7.99 (for a limited time only).
"This record brought our band closer together not only as musicians but as friends," notes drummer Jake Bundrick. "We've proudly created something musically that is ours and ours alone."
Streamed in it's entirety on Billboard.com yesterday, Monsters In The Closet features 12 unshakable heart-felt tracks showcasing the band's growth through each shimmering soaring hook. Lead singer Derek Sanders teamed up with Alternative Press today to release a special track by track on several songs on the album.
Alongside the album release, the band has launched a contest for one lucky fan to win a Target Shopping spree with the band. Fans can enter by sharing a photo of their purchased Monsters In The Closet album from Target, and including the hashtag #MonstersInTarget. The contest ends next Tuesday, October 15th.

MAYDAY PARADE - For the past seven years, the members of Tallahassee, Florida's Mayday Parade - Derek Sanders (Vocalist), Jeremy Lenzo (Bassist), Alex Garcia (Guitarist), Brooks Betts (Guitarist), and Jake Bundrick (Drummer) - have honed their patented style of catchy, kinetic pop-punk with an outpour of real rock energy. The Florida quintet knows its identity, but it's got more excitement for the future with new album Monsters In The Closet. Their fourth studio album, Monsters In The Closet is a collection of everything the group's fervent fan base loves about Mayday Parade. The band has come a long way since their landmark 2007 debut, A Lesson In Romantics which debuted at #8 on the Billboard Heatseeker's Chart, holding a chart position for seventy weeks and laying the framework for the band's path to success. To date, their album sales have exceeded 600,000 while track sales surpass 3,000,000. Their self-titled third album entered the Billboard Top 200 at #12 in 2011, and the band has been a standout on the Punk Goes... series. Having crossed the globe on countless tours, the band's impressive tour resume includes acts such as Plain White T's, Pierce The Veil, All Time Low, The Maine, We The Kings, We Are The In Crowd, and Set Your Goals. This Florida based five-some stand poised for the biggest and brightest chapter yet.
