With a little over a week left until the release of their fifth studio album, Mayday Parade are giving fans a chance to listen to another new song from the impending record. The new song is titled “Letting Go” and is the third single from Black Lines. The song made its official debut over at Rolling Stone, but can be heard here.
“‘Letting Go’ is a song about self-pity and not having the strength to get over a bad relationship,” explains guitarist Brooks Betts about the new song to the publication. “It’s about that weird spot when someone breaks you down even though you know they’re toxic. When you tried so hard for someone who was never going to let you in, knowing it’s going to end soon and preparing for the end.”
Listen to “Letting Go” below.
Last week, the Florida-based band revealed they will be releasing a documentary to celebrate their tenth anniversary a band. Fittingly titled Three Cheers for Ten Year, a direct reference to their song “Three Cheers for Five Years” from their Tales Told by Dead Friends EP, the documentary is set to be released on the same day as Black Lines; Oct. 9 through Fearless Records.
“Letting Go” will join previous singles “Keep In Mind, Transmogrification In a New Technology” and “One of Them Will Destroy the Other” on Black Lines. In support of the new record, Mayday Parade will be hitting the road this fall for the AP Tour. The tour which will also feature Real Friends, This Wild Life, and As It Is is set to begin on Oct. 14 at the House of Blues in Boston and wrap up on Nov. 25 at the House of Blues in Orlando.
