Mayday Parade Releases New Music Video for “I Can Only Hope"

sanders ep

Mayday Parade has released the video for their new single “I Can Only Hope” from their new EP Out of Here which just dropped via Rise Records.

The video was directed by longtime collaborator Guadalupe Bustos and opens on a fall day with a powerful quote from H.P. Lovecraft. In the video, each of band members – Derek Sanders, Brooks Betts, Alex Garcia, Jake Bundrick, and Jeremy Lenzo – appear to be running from something – though the audience can’t be sure what that is.

The song was written about a time of fear and uncertainty for drummer Jake Bundrick, who says: “’I Can Only Hope,’ simply put, is about my father. He recently had some medical issues in Georgia and being that I live in California, I felt so far away. The song is about being terrified. It's about that uncertainty whether someone will pull through something so difficult. It's about the unknown that follows all of it and never forgetting the sounds or senses of the moment when you received the news.”

On top of the latest single, the band has announced to bring a full-album performance of the LP ANYWHERE BUT HERE in celebration of the 10-year anniversary of the album to fans via a virtual show on December 5th.

Anywhere But Here was produced by David Bendeth (Paramore, Bruce Hornsby) and released on October 6th, 2009 (Atlantic Records). It was the first album by the band to make debuts across several Billboard charts (#31 Billboard 200, #8 Alternative Albums) and spawned several successful singles including “The Silence” and “Kids in Love” that went into regular rotation at radio & MTV. Though the album pre-dates the rise of Spotify and Apple Music, Anywhere but Here has racked up over 88 million plays on the two platforms, proving itself a lasting fan favorite.
