Having just joined the Rise Records roster, Mayday Parade have just released their brand new single Piece Of Your Heart off of their upcoming album Sunnyland. Set for a June 15th release, Sunnyland is the band’s 6th studio album and first with Rise Records.

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 vocalist Derek 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.”

“’Piece Of Your Heart’ is a song about true love. The video turned out very sweet – it gives me a warm feeling. Thanks for checking it out!” – Derek Sanders (vocals)

“’Piece Of Your Heart’ came into the batch of songs pretty late in the game. I think as we were going through pre-production with (producers) Zack (Odom) and Ken (Mount). I remember hearing the chorus and definitely being floored by it. As we worked on it more and more, it really started to shine and felt so good. It’s crazy how sometimes things just really click when you’re working on music.” – Alex Garcia (guitar)
