Derek Sanders of Mayday Parade - Fur Is Dead!
Hello again my friends! I have another Fur Is Dead supporter that I am very excited for you to meet: Derek Sanders!
You may recognize him as the fur-free singer of the awesome Tallahassee band Mayday Parade. If you haven’t heard their most recent record, “A Lesson in Romantics” then you should check it out! It was produced by Zack Odom and Kenneth Mount (Cartel, All Time Low) and the tracks were mixed by Mark Needham (My Chemical Romance, The Academy Is). So really, how can it not be amazing? Be sure to catch peta2 AND Mayday Parade at this summer’s Vans Warped Tour!
Check out our Q&A with Derek about the campaign:
What do you define as your personal style?
Casual. I’m a jeans and t-shirt kinda guy.
Do you have any fashion “do’s” and “don’ts”?
I have a terrible sense of fashion. Aside from your basic “no blacks with browns” I’m as dumb as they come.
Why do you choose not to wear real fur?
I don’t see the point, plus it’s just cruel.
What is your favorite animal? Why?
Dogs, they’re so loyal and friendly!
Do you have a favorite vegetarian dish? If so, what is it?
Does macaroni & cheese count? Maybe I should just say salad.
Mmmmmmm, Isha makes a mean vegan mac and cheese . . .
