A decade after forming, Mayday Parade will be celebrating the occasion by releasing a retrospective documentary. The film will be titled Three Cheers for Ten Years, a direct reference to their song, “Three Cheers for Five Years” off of their Tales Told by Dead Friends EP. The documentary will be released through Fearless Records on Oct. 9, the same day that their new record, Black Lines is set to be released.
If you’re a fan of Mayday Parade and already pre-ordered the album, don’t worry about having to order the documentary as well. The band has revealed that those who pre-ordered Black Lines will be given a free download of the documentary. When talking about the film, frontman Derek Sanders revealed the importance of the documentary especially for those who remember watching them perform on the Smartpunk stage on the Vans Warped Tour in 2008 (that would be us).
“Three Cheers for Ten Years is important to us because it covers the history of the band and documents the beginning of this new chapter,” explained Sanders. “There’s a lot of passion in this documentary and we’re excited to share it with everyone.”
