POZ Interview: Mayday Parade

by Zack Zarrillo - Jul 23, 2014

image

PropertyOfZack Senior Writer Jesse Richman headed out to Warped Tour a few weeks ago to sweat while watching bands, but to also do some great interviews for the site. 

Jesse spoke with Derek Sanders from Mayday Parade about Warped Tour, Monsters In The Closet a year later, future plans, and writing for a next release. Read the interview below!

POZ: Derek, I know we caught up with you fairly recently, but we’re now in the middle of Warped Tour, and Mayday Parade are one of the headlining acts, so I just want to know how it’s going to far.
DS: It’s been incredible. It’s always tough to say while it’s happening, but it’s certainly, if not my favorite, then one of my favorite tours I’ve ever done. It’s my favorite Warped Tour I’ve done. I feel like each time you do Warped Tour, you kind of get more used to it and comfortable with it. It’s such a great experience. We know so many people on the tour. And like you said, we’re playing the main stage for the first time, which is really incredible, it’s a milestone for us. It’s all good things, it’s great!

Having done it so many times, does it feel different being a mainstage act?
It’s a bigger look. Warped Tour is intimidating at first. We followed it and sold CDs outside at first — we weren’t even part of it — and then we played it several times on smaller stages and kind of worked our way up. At first it can be very intimidating; you don’t want to do the wrong thing, or piss off the wrong person. It’s almost overwhelming. But each time, as you do it more and more… And part of it, being on the main stage as well, it’s comfortable. But it’s very cool.

Is it a different approach from a production standpoint?
I suppose so. The stage itself isn’t that much bigger than the blow-up stage, the Monster Energy stage or whatever, but we tried to do our best with a cool backdrop scrim, a 3D-kind of thing. We just go out and have fun.

One thing I thought was kind of cool about the lineup this year is, some years there’s one or two super-huge headliner acts, but this year there’s more parity at that mainstage level. How do you think that’s affected the crowds that have come out?
It’s tough to say. It seems like it’s been doing really well, there’s a lot of people. I feel like a lot of times, there’s the one band that always plays towards the end, because they’re kind of the headliner, and this year it seems to be a little more spread out. I think that maybe that’s a good thing, so long as people are still showing up. And it’s probably always like this, but I feel like it happens more and more, where there are bigger bands on other stages, so you have fewer kids that just stand in front of the main stage and watch all day. People float around and check out other bands on different stages. It’s been great vibes so far.

You guys have been doing Warped Tour for a long time; this is, what, your sixth run?
It’s our fifth time playing it, and then we followed it, so that doesn’t really count, but we essentially did all of Warped Tour that year.

I imagine there were kids who were, like, the youngest kids in the crowd coming to see you those early years, who are now the old folks here. Maybe they’ve got their little brother or sister in tow who are getting exposed to you for the first time. Do you feel like you’re bringing in kids who still don’t know about you at this point? Or is it more of your loyal fanbase showing up to support you?
I’d say it’s a little bit of both, and that’s what’s great about it. It’s almost been nine years of being in this band, so anyone who was a fan in the beginning is a lot older now. I feel like we’ve had a whole lot of people who have stuck around, and there also seems to be a lot of newer, younger fans who are getting into it as well. It’s a blend of both, which is amazing. We’re very grateful to still be able to tour at this level.

SAVES THE DAY - One of my favorite bands, and they wrote one of my favorite albums - “Stay What You Are”
ANBERLIN - I’ve only seen them play one time before and it was great. I also heard this is one of their last tours, so I definitely don’t want to miss that.
YELLOWCARD - I got into Yellowcard when I was 13 and haven’t had the chance to see them live yet. Also, we are label mates!
MOD SUN - Mod Sun and I did a song together a couple years ago.. Might see if he’s down to do it live.
WE ARE THE IN CROWD - We toured with WATIC a couple times, in the US and South America. One of my favorite bands to be on the road with.
BREATHE CAROLINA - Always a good time live. Done 2 tours with these guys, and it’s always a blast. The new album is great too!
THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA - TDWP used to play shows near my town when they were starting out, and I was playing drums in bands. It’s cool to see how much of a force they became.
NICK SANTINO - Nick is a good friend of mine- I did a couple tours with A Rocket To The Moon, and I haven’t seen him play his solo stuff yet, so I’m stoked.
BAD RABBITS - They did Warped in 2011 when I was on it for the first time. They were the talk of the tour that year, everybody loved them. I bet they’ll have an awesome show and great crowds.
BAYSIDE - Bayside is great, go watch them, and then go see Anthony at the Acoustic Basement tent

image
I’m really excited to see Beartooth they have an awesome raw vibe to their music.
Every Time I Die is just a great time. Everytime you see them they don’t disappoint. Great way to get your warptour adrenalin pumping.
I’m definitely going to check out Watsky. I’ve always been entertained by his YouTube and rapping humor.
I’m glad The Color Morale is on the tour. I’ve always wanted to check their set out live.

Ten songs that make me feel ready for the summer and the Warped Tour - Andy Williams

image
Every Time I Die – Ebolarama

Twisting idioms around to make them sound even more badass than they do originally is one of our favorite summer activities.
Every Time I Die - Revival Mode
What defines summertime better than a blues-rock song? I have no clue. 
Every Time I Die - Underwater Bimbos From Outer Space
Nothing goes better with a tall glass of lemonade than this song, I’m pretty sure. Summertime often makes me want to be dead with my friends!
Every Time I Die - Kill the Music
My Chemical Romance reminds me of Warped, which reminds me that Gerard Way did a song with ETID. This song, Kill the Music. 
Every Time I Die - We’rewolf
Warped Tour starts with a W. So does this song!
Every Time I Die - Decayin With the Boys
Warped Tour’s taking place during the year 2014 this time around. ETID just came out with a song in the year 2014. This song!
Every Time I Die - Guitarred and Feathered
Guitars! Feathers! Birds have feathers! We’re A Lot Like Birds and we play guitar! Match made in heaven? We’ll see.
Every Time I Die - The New Black
Orange is the New Black is a show everybody keeps telling me to watch. But I refuse. Doesn’t look interesting. I like this song. Warped Tour!
Every Time I Die - Off Broadway
I really hope Every Time I Die doesn’t end up reading this and thinking we’re just fan boys. I’m gonna make the last song something different.
Smash Mouth - Pacific Coast Party
SUMMER!!
