With their upcoming album Sunnyland due out in two weeks, Mayday Parade have released their new song and video for “It’s Hard To Be Religious When Certain People Are Never Incinerated By Bolts of Lightning”.
About the new song, lead singer Derek Sanders told Billboard, “I would say it’s a little bit more angry than anything we’ve done before. I wrote it shortly after the 2016 presidential election, when Trump won. I was just kind of horrified something like that was even possible – not that it’s all directed towards him, necessarily, but that’s kind of the mindset I was in. However, it’s not all dark. There is, at least to me, a hopeful outlook towards the future and trying to appreciate what we have.”
