The rock band Mayday were just a bunch of students when they got started in the late 1990s, but today they’re the hottest group in Taiwan and one of the most famous bands in the Chinese-speaking world – “the Chinese Beatles”, in fact. That disc came after a five-year hiatus that began following the release of “The Second Round” in 2011. Mayday is among the world’s top-selling bands, with more than 200 million digital sales of “History” alone, just in Taiwan and China. That was followed by “Gan Bei” (“Cheers”), “Xiong Di” (“Brotherhood”) and “Ren Sheng You Xian Gong Si” (“Life Co Ltd”). It seemed like Mayday were working hard to make everyone’s dreams come true.
