Mayday Parade are navigating love and heartbreak in their latest single, “Bad At Love,” via Rise Records.

Alongside the new song and accompanying video, the band shared exclusive behind-the-scenes photos with Alternative Press.

As the video goes on, emotional scenes from their relationship appear on a television in their empty house. These moody shots also match the melancholic tone of the track.

Set in California, the visual was one of three videos shot and directed in the same week by Katharine White.

“The video shows our two actors at different moments in their life together, ending with the return of a wedding ring and the realization [that] they’re better off separated," he continues.

“Bad At Love” is a starkly different tune than the band’s previous single “Kids Of Summer,” which was an ode to their time on Vans Warped Tour. Where “Bad At Love” is an emotional ballad about lost love, “Kids Of Summer” nostalgically looks back on the past with appreciation.
