The five-track EP is the adored Mayday Parade frontman’s second solo release following My Rock and Roll Heart (2020), which was comprised of five stripped-back covers.
The Heavy Box features five original tracks penned by Sanders and includes features from Mike Hanson of local Tallahassee band Goodbye Love and Jason Lancaster, former Mayday Parade co-frontman.
“It was a pleasure and an honor to be able to work with Jason again for the first time in over 16 years. It’s amazing to me how quickly and easily we were able to pick back up right where we left off and create something meaningful to both of us,” says Sanders on working with Lancaster on the track “Dear Life.”
