Albums That Changed My Life: Derek Sanders (Mayday Parade)

This week's slice of "Albums That Changed My Life" goodness comes from Mayday Parade frontman Derek Sanders!

The band are currently touring across the country on their fall co-headline tour with The Maine. All dates and ticket information can be found here.

Nirvana - Nevermind

At a very young age I mostly listened to classic rock and country that my parents showed me. Nirvana was one of the first bands that my brothers and I got into that my parents didn't show us. It opened (more like kicked open) the door to alternative rock for me, and it was one of my first experiences enjoying something that I had discovered on my own.

The Smashing Pumpkins - Mellon Collie & The Infinite Sadness

This was the first album that I had to actually wait for it to come out before buying it. I was eleven at the time, and I was just blown away when I finally heard it. "Bullet With Butterfly Wings" was my favorite song for a few years, this album is 90's rock at it's best, and I fucking love 90's rock.

Further Seems Forever - Moon Is Down

I heard "The Bradley" on a compilation album and fell in love, went out and bought the whole album and fell even more in love. This band came along right at the right time for me (I had been listening to some of The Juliana Theory, Saves The Day, other stuff like that) and solidified my role in the emo world.

New Found Glory - New Found Glory

Pop-punk at it's finest. One of the catchiest, most fun albums of all time. It brought me even closer to this scene, this album is one of the several reasons we play the kind of music we play.
