Tales Told by Dead Friends is the debut EP from Tallahassee rock band Mayday Parade, released on June 13, 2006.[3]


  • "When I Get Home, You're So Dead" is the only song from this EP to be re-recorded with an electric guitar for their debut album, A Lesson in Romantics (2007).
  • "Your Song" was later re-recorded acoustically for the band's Valdosta (2011) EP, with Jake Bundrick taking over Jason Lancaster's vocal parts.
  • "Three Cheers for Five Years" was also re-recorded acoustically, but for Punk Goes Acoustic 2. It was later released as a bonus track for A Lesson in Romantics.
