By 2007, Mayday Parade released their certified-gold debut album "A Lesson in Romantics", selling over 200,000 copies, which included singles "Jamie All Over" and "When I Get Home, You're So Dead". Then following the departure of their former lead singer, Jason Lancaster.

In the midst of the global pandemic in 2020, Mayday Parade released an EP named "Out of Here" with the lead single "Lighten Up Kid" where Bundrick expressed "is about trying to find yourself and the strength to keep fighting for what you believe in".
