Valdosta is an acoustic EP from Tallahassee rock band Mayday Parade.


  • "Jamie All Over" was originally a song by Kid Named Chicago, the previous band of Jake Bundrick, Alex Garcia, and Jason Lancaster. It was later re-recorded on Mayday Parade's debut album A Lesson in Romantics. The end of this song is sung by Daniel Lancaster, Jason's brother, much as it is on the version on A Lesson in Romantics.
  • Both "Kids in Love" and "Bruised and Scarred" had appeared on from Mayday Parade's second album Anywhere but Here.
  • "Your Song" is from Mayday Parade's debut EP Tales Told by Dead Friends.
  • Jake Bundrick sings all of the parts originally sung by Jason Lancaster.
  • "Amber Lynn" and "Terrible Things" were both new songs.[2]

Release and reception[edit]

"Terrible Things" was released for streaming on February 22, 2011.[3] Valdosta was released by Atlantic and Fearless on March 8. Valdosta was the name of a town that the band used to record their early material in.[2] Reception from both fans and critics have been mainly positive, except for long-term fans who were unwilling to accept the band's current sound.[2]
