As you can tell by our handful of photo reviews over the past couple months, 2007 was a pretty special year for our music scene. Plastered with dynamic releases from Paramore, August Burns Red, The Almost, Blessthefall, Circa Survive, All Time Low, Straylight Run and so much more, there’s no question looking back ten years later, 2007 was a year that shaped countless bands today.
Proving just that is Mayday Parade and their dynamic ‘07 debut A Lesson For The Romantics. 10 years after releasing their flawless full-length, the band’s LP has undoubtedly helped pave the way for pop-rock acts like The Summer Set, Tonight Alive, Set It Off and even 5 Seconds Of Summer (yeah that’s right, 5SOS too).
With tracks like “Jamie All Over,” “Black Cat,” “When I Get Home You’re So Dead,” “Jersey,” and of course “Miserable At Best,” Mayday Parade proved their brand of soft-spoken, emotion-filled (and sometimes piano-laced) rock songs were just as captivating and heartfelt as their “heavier” Warped Tour counterparts.
Now a decade after its initial release, to help celebrate the longevity of A Lesson In Romantics, Mayday Parade is currently out on a ten-year anniversary tour playing the album in full alongside pop-punk rising stars Knuckle Puck. To get a glimpse of the nostalgic charm the tour is bringing nationwide, be sure to check out some dazzling shots from photographer Dillon Flowers below.
