While it may not be a part of Fueled by Ramen's emo-pop champion roster alongside the likes of Fall Out Boy, Paramore and Panic! At the Disco, Mayday Parade could easily fool anyone that it was. Formed when two Tallahassee, Fla., bands came together as a single ensemble, it exhibits the signature traits of its higher-echelon contemporaries, belting plenty of adolescent angst against the slick backdrops of anthem choruses and accelerant hooks. Recently landing on the cover of Alternative Press magazine, Mayday Parade is supporting the release of its major label debut, “Anywhere But Here,” at the Canal Club on Tuesday, Dec. 1, with There For Tomorrow, the Dangerous Summer and City Lights at 6 p.m. $13-$15.
