the song or giving away a song? The band always runs promotions and this album was not that influenced by label after the their previous release.
To me, this acoustic performance itself seems completely uninspired. I loved the newest release; it was a wonderful return to form for them, and I only hope that they continue to build upon it to give us something groundbreaking on their next release. But, as I said, this performance right here just sounds completely uninspired. "Hey guys, we've got an obligation to do this. Lets just get this done already" is the way it came across to me.
Now, I know that isn't the way Mayday Parade is (I've been a fan since Dead Friends) so I'll just write it off as a bad recording.
