¡MAYDAY! | Interview
¡MAYDAY! is a hip hop, funk, and alternative rock band consisting of six members from Miami, FL. The group has released several singles which have caused a stir in clubs and with local music press. After the release of their self-titled debut album, URB Magazine placed ¡MAYDAY! In their next 20 Artists To Watch and MTV chose them as one of the Freshmen Five, providing opportunities to travel the country and perform to packed houses with artists such as Daft Punk, Big Boi, Method Man, and Goodie Mob. Between albums ¡MAYDAY! released a series of EPs and consistently bombarded the net with enough new music, remixes and videos to keep fans satisfied. With such a strong buzz in Miami, it caught the attention of Lil Wayne, who invited the band to be his on-screen band in three music videos (“Get A Life”, “Da Da Da”, and “On Fire”), as well as a performance at his 2010 Super Bowl party. In addition, Tech N9ne quickly signed the band to his label Strange Music, and immediately they hit the road to join Tech on his 70 city tour called All 6s & 7s. After the premiere of ¡MAYDAY!’s music video for “Groundhog Day” with Cee-Lo Green, the clip on YouTube received over two million views in under two days, garnering attention from The New York Times, ABC World News Tonight, NBC 6 Evening News, and Inside Edition. Later that year “Groundhog Day” was featured on HBO’s Entourage.
