Derek Sanders Announces New EP, ‘The Heavy Box’

Derek Sanders, frontman of emo/pop-punk quintet Mayday Parade, has announced his upcoming EP The Heavy Box out 14th April via Rise Records.

The five-track EP is Sanders’ second solo release following My Rock and Roll Heart (2020), which was comprised of five stripped-back covers.

“Slowly over the last few years I have poured as much love and energy as I could into these songs,” shares Sanders. “Thank you to everyone who helped make ‘The Heavy Box’ something real and available for those who find it worth their time. These songs mean so much to me, I hope you enjoy them.”

Alongside the announcement, Sanders shares “Howell Canyon.” A track that he explains is “about dealing with the sadness that comes from an important chapter in my life ending. The song takes a look back but also forward towards a more hopeful future.”
