Mayday Parade fans already have a massive tour to look forward to in 2017, but now, the band has unveiled an even bigger treat for those longtime followers. On Friday (Jan. 27), the Florida-founded band announced plans to release an anniversary edition of their debut record, A Lesson in Romantic. The re-issue is set to be released on March 17 and will feature six previously unreleased tracks as well as a brand new song. Pre-orders are currently available on iTunes while bundle pre-orders are being offered on the band’s website.
In addition to the re-issue announcement, the band has also released the music video for “Black Cat,” one of the songs featured on the original version of A Lesson in Romantics. In the clip, frontman Derek Sanders seems to get hit by every single bad luck superstition throughout the barely three-and-a-half minute video. He walks under a ladder, ends up at a house that’s unit number of 13, there’s an upside down horseshoe over the fireplace in the living room, there’s a broken mirror in the bathroom, and of course a black cat just hanging around. The music video for “Black Cat” can be seen above.
In support of A Lesson in Romantic‘s decade anniversary, the band announced in December plans to hit the road in the spring. The “A Lesson in Romantics Tenth Anniversary Tour” will kick off on March 23 at the House of Blues in New Orleans and wrap up two and a half months later on May 26 in their home state of Florida at the House of Blues in Orlando. Knuckle Puck and Milestones are set to open for Mayday throughout the excursion. At the moment, there are several sold out shows which resulted in Mayday adding a couple of more dates to their previously announced schedule. Tickets can be found here while the full list of tour dates can be found here.
Last week, it was revealed that Mayday will join the list of artists set to hit the high seas this fall for the inaugural Warped Rewind at Sea. For more information about that, head on over here.
